The Enigma of Amigara Fault is a bizarre and wonderful short story. It is short because that is the length of the story. All you need to know is rolled up into a concise ball. If you like horror manga than this is a title it would be a shame to skip. If you don't, then it might be a bit shocking, but certainly still worth the read.
The story itself is rather unique, which is saying something in a genre filled with the strange and the obscure. The art is beautifully detailed and the story flows with an even and consistent pace. Instead of resorting to blood and guts for shock value, this particular piece goes for concepts that bring to mind real fear. Something you may not have thought of, but that you still dread through the entire story.
Unlike many stories of this type, you can't just skip to the end and go "so that was it". The whole piece falls together like a well-fit puzzle and the gravity of the situation doesn't properly hit you unless you've started at the beginning and followed it to its rightful end. read more

It's CLAMP, so it's pretty. This is a given. But that's about all it has going for it when it comes to technical merit.
Someone's head gets cut off practically every ten minutes (or at least dies in some gruesome way). They fit the deaths of most of the cast into the movie. Someone should turn it into a drinking game.
I think my mother summed it up best: "Who are these people and why did they just kill each other? It looked like it was important for some reason." read more

Unfortunately it goes down hill from there when it gets to volume two. The stories become a bit shorter and have less plot to them. Plot ideas that could be interesting if there was more buildup and detail fall flat when shrunk to only a few pages. The main repeating character starts out in the first volume as mysterious but not entirely unreal. By the time you get to the end of the second volume however he seems like a badly fleshed out mary sue. None of his powers are explained or even witnessed outside of him showing up at the end of each chapter to defeat the bad guy and make it so nothing actually happened in the chapter.
Overall this series is a collection of decent ideas that haven't been worked with at all, combined with a bunch of really generic ideas that haven't been fleshed out either. read more
