You are dead. Now, you have three options: accept your death and go to heaven, don’t accept it and stay as a ghost, and one more… haunt and kill someone in the world, but if you kill someone you will go straight to hell, and your suffering will never end. These options are presented by the long dark haired Izuko, the guardian of the gate for the murdered ones.

The art is creepy and far from what we consider a typical manga style - the brushes are blurred, the contrast between black and white is elevated to the maximum, read more

"Human's are like the Earth's dust, one life is as swift as a dream, but everyone struggles to survive."

Death. An inevitable outcome in Life. It happens when we least expect it, or rather it happens when it happens. Mankind has grown to live with the pursuit of happiness, but pursuit of satisfaction seems to be more common. We all have different opinions in the afterlife, yet we continue living ignore the consequences of death.

We see here in this series a being that offers a chance of rebirth, regret, and vengeance. Each soul presents his/her own tragedies and personalities in such a way that we read more
