I was very excited to start reading this one, the cover looked quite exciting (though his neck/head position was a bit painful) and the blurb sounded right up my lane!
And boy, this was in the end pretty awesome. I wasn’t a fan of all the characters, Sendo especially just got on my nerves. He didn’t know when to stop being nosy, saw conspiracies EVERYWHERE, he complained a lot (I mean, hello everyone was fighting for their lives and yes I understand that you don’t want to touch those damned wires but man up and do it), he is truly the weakest link in the party with that he was the first to be captured (and then had to be freed again by our awesome detective or whatever he is dude). And so on. I just wanted him eaten by one of the monsters. I am sorry.
Yamagishi however? I did like him more! He seemed to actually have a brain in his head, not to mention that he is strong. I did feel sorry for him for what happened at the boxing stuff, I can imagine that he is feeling down by that. But hey look, your skills are still worth something, look at you kicking some serious creepy butt. I do wonder why his hair is half white and half black and why he has the scar on his head. I hope we find out more about that in the next volumes. I can’t wait!
The manga is pretty spooky and scary. Our duo is at school late at night when they see something weird happening. They run away but the next night they come back and that is the start of some really creepy stuff. I am still not entirely sure what is going on, but there are plant-faced humans walking around, bugs, dimensions get distorted, people get murdered. It was a bit confusing, but I did get a good grasp in the end, though I would like some more confirmation regarding stuff.
Also booo cliffhanger! Who is that person! I want to know!
So I had tons of fun reading this one, it has all the elements I love seeing in a manga right now (my mood is for spooky things). I also love the art that the manga is using, especially the battle scenes were just wonderful .
All in all, recommended! I can’t wait for the next volume.
