Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 10 Up–In volume 1, Keiichi moved to a new village and learned that someone has died on the night of the Cotton Drifting Festival for the past four years. Here, he discovers that each of his new friends is connected in some way to the previous victims, and that they may be more dangerous than Keiichi could have imagined. He spends a lot of time worrying, trembling, and talking to himself. Meanwhile, his new friends continue to act sweet and wonderful one minute and darkly terrifying the next–but is that their fault, or are they being controlled by the village curse? Keiichi alternates between being a sympathetic and an annoying protagonist. Sometimes it takes him several pages to worry out loud about whether or not his life is in danger, when the same effect could be achieved more efficiently in a couple of panels. Suzuragi&'s artwork sets a fantastic mood, especially during the scenes in which the girls appear to be possessed and their eyes look like those of a cat reflecting a flashlight in the dark. The cute/scary ratio of the book remains fairly consistent until the ending, which is far more grisly than many readers might expect.–Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library

If you are debating between the manga and anime, definitely pick the manga.

P.S. For those of you who don't know, this manga goes in Arcs, meaning that the story is told over and over, with different perspectives of the story for each one.
StompySan
I bought this because I at least wanted to finish the arc, and also because I liked the manga so much (I can read one of these books in one hour)!

For those confused by my title, no this story isn't written by stephen king I was just joking. BUT IT MIGHT AS WELL BE! Seriously, I was scared SH@TLESS when I read it. The story is really engaging, the artwork is beatiful but down right terrifying when it's time for a scary scene. DO NOT GIVE TO YOUNG CHILDREN!!! You will scare them to death.I know I am

Seriously. I have heard quite a few of my friends talk pretty low of this manga. I decided to purchase it to see if it was really that bad. They were WAAAAY wrong. I am not going to waste time trying to explain the storyline. If you want to know what happens, read that in a different review. Anyway, the artwork in this manga is downright beautiful. I was truly astonished by it. It is also quite horrifying at points. There was one point that I honestly jumped. I NEVER do that, even when watching scary movies or anime. NEVER. The storyline first comes off as really generic, and continues to be throughout volume 1. However, this all changes in this book. So many twists and turns. The ending is, by far, one of THE BEST endings I have read in a manga in a long time. After reading, I seriously sat there and just said "Wow".

Bottom Line: If you like horror mangas, buy this immediately. Make sure to get volume 1 as well.

P.S. For those of you who don't know, this manga goes in Arcs, meaning that the story is told over and over, with different perspectives of the story for each one. Each Arc is unique. Though I haven't read any of the other Arcs yet, I can assume the same greatness that came from this. So pick those up as well, if you have the funds.

*This review is for the entire arc. Possible spoilers*
Before I start, let me say I have seen the entire anime. This is WAY different. Not the story, that is the same but the experience. This arc was phenomenal. As Keiichi slowly falls into madness, you feel like you are right there with him. The story flows beautifully from one panel to the next. Karin Suzuragi's art is gorgeous and frightening at the same time. The only complaint I have about it is that when characters were shown from a distance, they had a tendency of looking really short and childish. But this was a minor issue. Ryukishi07's story had even me scared but loving every moment of it. This wasn't just a manga. It was an experience. Even having seen the anime, I can say that. If you are debating between the manga and anime, definitely pick the manga. I will be picking up the other arcs and writing reviews for each one. PS: this is my first review so please go easy on me :)
