About Of the Red the Light and the Ayakashi Manga Volume 1

Of the Red, the Light, and the Ayakashi Manga Volume 1 features story and art by HaccaWorks* with art by Nanao

Sheltered Yue, born and raised in a Shinto shrine, is forbidden from leaving the shrine grounds he and a number of other curious residents call home. One day Yue breaks the rules and wanders down the mountain and into a winter festival. As he takes in the sights and sounds of the human gathering, all the people making merry appear in a uniform guise to Yue's eyes - that of black bestial shadows... until he crosses paths with two human boys, Tsubaki and Akiyoshi. Intrigued by their unique, individual appearances, Yue is eager to make friends with them. However, upon his return home, the shrine goddess informs him that he may pursue these friendships... but only in preparation for the "meal" - for which he must select one of his two new friends as the main course!

The world of ayakashi (spirits and creatures from Japanese folklore) comes to life in this modern dark fantasy manga adaptation of the hit otome visual novel, "Of the Red, the Light, and the Ayakashi" by HaccaWorks*! Features art by Nanao.

Very slow, but it's building towards something alright.

by -

A boy/yokai needs to eat one of two boys? add some story building and here is the first volume. This first volume felt really lacking, full of holes. characters that arent developed well yet, etc.
It's really a mystery, a blur, but please give it time and try to read to possibly volume 3.

In this series, we are thrown in and see the MC meet two boys and is somewhat different. He's part of a group of yokai and he's doesn't know much of what's happening. Basically you're going to have to keep reading to see how it plays out as I just finished volume 2 and I basically only learned 2 new things.
Absolutely slow in pace and confusing, but you really sense that it's building to something that I can't tell you what it is.

It's best to try this series out and see if you enjoy it

Of the red, the Light and the intrigued

This first volume has me seriously intrigued, but also very confused. I get strong Natsume's book of friend vibes with a twist of crime drama. However, I can't explain what is exactly happening and that makes me curious to find out more and piece together the mystery.
