Five years ago, a group of friends murdered a man. Every year since then, Shintarou Nakamura, Akira Kanzaki, Ryuu Nimaidou, Haruka Nagase, and Tsubaki Toyoshima visit the dead man's rotting bones and reaffirm their blood oath to take the secret to their graves.

Soon after one of their yearly visits, the friends hear that a golf course will be built in the area and decide to go back and move the body. Instead of bones, however, they find a cell phone that begins to ring. The group answers it with trepidation, and the stranger on the other end confirms what they already suspect: the bones are indeed missing, and their crime has been discovered. In order to stay out of jail, they agree to do the thief a "favor," and in the process uncover a plot that will test the bonds of their friendship.

This Manga is extremely enjoyable and I would implore anyone who agrees to assist in raising the score. Till Your Bones Rot is deep philosophical manga about the consequences of murdering someone. These consequences are experienced and conveyed through a group of young teenagers, who all had their own motives and deal with it in their own way. In the way that it's emotional, it's also a mystery roller-coaster. There are many scenes in this that will leave you guessing at what happens next, or took place that we don't know about yet.

It's drawn pretty well, and I rarely ever had a moment where the read more

This manga is really not well known at all, and that's a shame. It doesn't even have any reviews, so I'll be writing one.

At first when I started reading Hone ga Kusaru I didn't really have any high hopes, since there must be a reason why people don't read it right? But the beautiful and interesting cover art pulled me in, anyway. I expected this to manga to really blow and have some sort of misunderstanding about the person the group killed.

To my pleasant surprise, it really doesn't pull back it's punches. The art is phenomenal, the characters feel real, and it has read more

This manga generally tells about friendship, sacrifice, betrayal and remorse.
It all started when "they killed someone five years ago".

When talking about this manga I can't dismiss the conclusions of the story, so expect to be careful there will be spoilers.
This didn't work out as I had hoped, but from the start I knew the story would go there. Someone commented badly, but there were some things I disagreed with.

The premise is still interesting from the beginning to the end, a tension, though unfortunately it doesn't use tricks so the story really has a climax.
I honestly don't like it when there is a "love" that grows read more
