I was actually pretty surprised that no one had wrote a review for this, so i'll be the first to write one.

Story: I gave the story a 6/10 because, well, there were different stories, some better than others. To give a whole review on all 9 short stories used in this manga, here's my opinion on all of them:
Story 1: I sort of suspected who was the culprit in this one, and I guess it's pretty average.
Story 2: I felt sorry for the main girl; after all, people can change. But because I don't want to spoil it, i'm not going to tell you what read more

Well, they both have shojo, and horror(--not very scary actually) stories.

Manga: Anata no Shiranai Sekai
Basicly, they are pretty much the same thing: oneshots, shojo, horror...
