15 of 15 chapters read
Aside from the art, the story was good. It was interesting and didn't bore me at all. Distorted, dark and revolting, the story will pique your curiosity. It is quite hard to stop once you've started, since it's full of suspense and mystery at the beginning, all the way towards the end. Of course, if you will get disgusted by humanity's dark side, then I think it's better if you don't pick this up. It's somewhat unpredictable, not the usual cliche stories, though certain parts are expected.
As for the characters, I have to say they were an amusing bunch. I like the character designs, which were complimented by the beautiful art and the military uniforms. I won't go into detail about each character, since you'll know after reading the manga and even I don't fully comprehend them after completing the manga. They are all complex people and it can be quite confusing, thinking about their reasons for their actions. Each character would seem pleasant at first, but as you read on, you'll slowly see each of their own twisted selves.
To be honest, I wasn't expecting much BL undertones from this manga since it was categorized under shoujo. Despite all the slash and the "homosexual relationships are forbidden" in the first few pages, it's not BL (though it might be slightly uncomfortable for some who dislikes BL). The hints increase more towards the end...it might be advisable not to read it you can't stand BL elements, though I think it can be a stepping stone for those who have never read BL before.
All in all, it was an enjoyable read. 15 chapters was sufficient. (Though I wish there was more, like an extra or something hahaha)
