Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
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
Extra: From the same Mangaka that did Boys Over Flowers
