Until Your Bones Rot
Volume 1


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.

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

Mixed Feelings
I liked this manga for a few reasons, but also had my reasons to dislike it too. In my opinion, it was a good time killer and decent manga, but failed as a thriller in many ways. I will write some pros and cons.


Very great concept, and succeeded in being very psychological at times. Really gave insight into the emotions of those who have taken a life, which I am sure most could not actually relate to. But somehow, it worked here.

I thought I had predicted the culprit, but it was actually somebody different. Some of the twists and turns were quite good.

The art suited ...

I can see why people would leave good reviews, but I've read enough of this genre to not really see anything special in this story or that makes all the flaws worth the read. This is, first of all, too pretentious for its own good: a slight case of "virgin loser" type shonen writing that showed specially in the female side characters (useless and whose actions didn't make any sense) which was a shame since the protagonist wasn't as annoying as other cases of this, a great amount of predictability that the author attempted to solve by pulling dumb plot twists out of thin air, ...
