In the quiet little hamlet of Twilight Town, there lives a boy named Roxas. He and his friends Hayner, Pence and Olette are trying to enjoy their final days of summer vacation, when strange things begin to happen. First the group is falsely accused of stealing photos from all over town. Then they are attacked by bizarre, white creatures. But the oddest occurrences are the recurring dreams Roxas has of a boy named Sora, and the presence of a girl named Naminé, who has a mysterious secret to share with Roxas.

Disclaimer: This manga is based on KH2, the Square Enix video game. Although I LOVE LOVE LOVE KH BBS and KH COM, as I got older, I grew a little out of KH2. Nevertheless, the game was epic when it first came out. BUT the manga is a little different...

It's really great and close to the game which is sometimes rare to find manga that is true to it's game or series. The art is pretty good it's not great but I still love it.
