At 6:29 p.m. on October 31 in Maryland, America, a little boy named Alex draws his last breath while still dressed in his Halloween costume. At 12:25 a.m. on the same day in Saxony, Germany, Rite Auer is a child of similar age to Alex who dies alongside him. These two are "twin souls,'' destined to meet before they pass on to the other side.

As they travel toward one another, Alex and Rite's souls are strangely drawn in the direction of a few compatible people who are able to see, hear, and interact with them. Alex comes across Haruhi Kurahashi, a woman with a twin sister who sees Haruhi as a rival. On the other side of the world, Rite meets a former doctor by the name of Theo Kloden who currently runs a small homemade jewelry business.

The fateful encounters of Alex and Rite with Haruhi, Theo, and others allow them to recover the memories of their past lives and reasons for their deaths as they gradually close the distance between each other.

I really think this manga is a masterpiece. I am adding it to my favorite manga list, no doubt.

It goes about two kids who die at the exact same time in two completely different places in the world. But their spirits remain and contact several people they are drawn to, due to some sort of compatibility that allows these humans to see them (they can be seen by humans who have a twin-sole somewhere). As they interact with the humans, we slowly get to know their story and the reason for their deaths, and the kids, who are, as a matter of fact, twin soles read more

it was a moving manga about two dead kids who have twin souls alex and rise, getting closer to each other and finding out how they respectively died. i wont ruin the ending but its genius how everything comes together if you stick with it so you feel like you havent wasted your time when youve finished and the characters have amzing depth with an all around ending. but be warned it will squeeze a tear out of the toughest mans eye so i was weeping like a friggin baby. its a masterpeice that knows how to introduce characters, get you to like them then read more

Don't you hate it when you read a manga that intrigues you and looks like it'll be interesting, only for it to turn out that it's not as good as you hoped it'd be? Because this is pretty much my reaction to Twin Souls, or Tamashii no Futago, an obscure horror/supernatural manga that came out between 2006-2008. Basically, the story centers on two children on different sides of the world who died on the same day under mysterious circumstances. Although the two have only met once in their lives, their souls have become intertwined, destined to meet at a certain point, but the reason why, read more

Tamashii no Futago, or 'The Twin Souls' is the story of two souls, Alex and Rita, who both died at the same moment, and can only be seen by those who have a 'twin soul' somewhere else. Alex and Rita fly around surprising people who can see them, all the while inadvertently getting closer to each other. Because only a few chapters have been released, the back story on how Alex and Rita died is still in question, but we do learn that their deaths were under mysterious circumstances. Each chapter depicts different meetings with humans who have twin souls. The art of Tamashii no read more
