Story - 8/10: Alright so the story begins with a 16 year old male who is a criminal, and he ends up doing forced labor at a cemetery. He ends up meeting a mysterious girl, who's the gravekeeper. It starts off as a boy meets girl kind of scenario, but the story shifts towards a darker theme. The mysterious element to the story is what kept me interested, although the story seemed a bit rushed at the end. But overall, it's a nice and short manga, with a bit of mystery, supernatural, and romance mixed in there. Maybe it could've been longer, but it was still pretty enjoyable.
Art - 9/10: I enjoyed the art, it was fairly detailed and was nice to look at overall. Some of the scenes get pretty graphic later on, so watch out for that if you aren't a big fan of gore.
Character - 7/10: The characters were pretty interesting, although it didn't really bring anything new to the table. The protagonist is somewhat generic for a manga, although I did enjoy the feelings put into the characters. Maybe it's just me, but I thought the mangaka did a nice job of portraying the character's emotions in this manga.
Overall - 8/10: So overall, this manga was a nice short read to end off my night. It's not too long that you'll get tired of it, but it's not so short that it's underdeveloped. If you enjoy mysteries and don't mind some darker themes, then you might enjoy this one. read more
