Synopsis

Kuro, a little tomboy garbed in pitch-black with a little-tomboy-sized coffin on her back, heads out on a journey to find a certain witch. In the company of her faithful bat friend, Zen, Kuro encounters all manners of people and places which fire the readers imaginations. Told in 4-koma (four panel) style with beautifully rendered art, Shoulder-A-Coffin Kuro is a manga that manages both dark and gothic and irresistably endearing on just about every page!

This series is on hiatus.

Manga: Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World
Travel is the main them of Kino no Tabi and Shoulder-a-Coffin Kuro, with the protagonists visiting different cultures and people in a world not really like our own. Kino and Kuro are tomboy-ish and don't bother correcting people for assuming they're girls. Also, they have an unorthodox traveling partner who tends to be less serious than the main character (a talking motorcycle for Kino and talking bat/bats for Kuro). The stories are episodic with each chapter visiting a different place before being forgotten for the next chapter.

Manga: Aria
These two series aren't very similar story-wise, and compared to Aria, Shoulder-a-Coffin Kuro is slightly gloomier and more humorous.(Yes, it's a paradox, yet it's true) But they both provide insights on small aspects of life and give off a charming, sentimental feeling.
