A story based on the popular series of songs by Jin (Shizen no Teki-P) titled Kagerou Project. Shintarou Kisaragi—a NEET who shut himself inside his room for 2 years—has been living his life normally until he met a cyber girl named Ene, who appeared in his computer screen when someone anonymously sent him a mysterious e-mail one year ago. One day, Ene had been messing with Shintaro's PC, which causes him have to go to the outside world for first time in two years.

Well, this is my first review on MyAnimeList, so I decided to make a pretty positive review for a franchise I adore.

First of all, before I talk about what MyAnimeList made me rate (Story; Art; Characters, etc...) I took the time to say; One of Media Factory's many monthly comics, Monthly Comic Gene, is said to be shōnen manga for girls. So if one of the characters eats a fruit and becomes a rubber man, I'd be cool, whatever (even though shōnen battle manga isn't my thing, not so sure which direction the novel and manga are going to)


I'd say it's good, not perfect, but read more

I always find it creative when mangakas find their different ways of tying a lot of different people in together in realistic ways, well of course it wasn't all that realistic, but you still find yourself amazed when you begin to peace everything together as you go along. This review is only for like the first 15 chapters that are there so far and I can't even explain how hard it is to judge it off of that, but I'll give it a try.

Story 8
I give the story a 8 because it hasn't all been released for me to really piece everything together, but read more

Kagerou Daze is a manga adaptation of Jin (Shizen no Teki-P)'s vocaloid song series "Kagerou Project". It's written by Jin and illustrated by Mahiro Satou.

STORY: 9/10
Kagerou Daze is the story set mostly on August 14th and 15th and is centered around the Mekakushi Dan, a gang of teenagers with strange eye abilities, the heat-haze daze, and timeloops.

I would like to note Jin has stated the manga is not intended to be an adaption of the light novel, but another timeline in the series.

The story can seem complicated at first, but once you get a grasp on the story, it's well worth it.

ART: 8/10

Manga: Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
If you're a fans of Yuukei Yersterday arc and need more of Takane x Haruka's dynamics, you might like Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun has similar characters and settings. It's a high school romance story between cool-headed, snarky, (and a bit tsundere) twin-tailed girl and an innocent but airheaded boy whose short wavy hair.
