Psychologically Riveting


What immediately caught my attention about this novel was that is psychologically oriented. Being a psychology major I had major valid interest in this from the beginning and it didn't disappoint. The story is quite horrific in its telling of the power of the mind and its influence on reality.

Emotion Twisting and Mentally Astonishing

by -

I don't remember exactly what drew my attention to this manga, but I'm glad it did. I may just be easy to please, but I thought it was a wonderfully horrifying and sad story. I am in no way easy to get to emotionally, but the story in these pages left me feeling for the characters and grabbing for the second volume as soon as I finished the first.
