Opinion: I really loved this cute supernatural story. I’m sad Viz doesn’t seem to promote their digital only series, I stumbled on this way too late!

I love the art. Kamio has such a unique and recognizable style and with this being a recent release it’s very polished.

I typically read shoujo because they are heavily romance based but this series really doesn’t care that much about romance. This was a really interesting supernatural story. I would have loved to see it a bit longer.

If you enjoy supernatural manga with demons/devils ect you may love this! Great read.

Final Rating: 4/5
