Synopsis

Emilico is just one of many "Living Dolls" serving in the Shadows House, residents of which are pitch black from head to toe and constantly leak soot that stains the house black. Each "Shadow" is partnered with a Doll, which strangely resembles the other. As a Living Doll, Emilico must keep the house sparkling clean as well as act as the face for her master, Kate. In turn, Kate supports Emilico and treats her as her confidant.

As far as either of them can remember, this has always been the way their world works. However, the bond between a Shadow and a Doll isn't quite clear. Administrators watch over the young pairs from the higher levels of the mansion and judge them—but for what purpose?

This will be a short review since I highly recommend you go into this blind.

Where do I start?

Shadows House is quite a peculiar manga with an abnormal setting. It follows the relationship between Emilyko, a living doll, and her shadow master Kate. Emilyko has a duty to clean the room of her master who continues to emit soot that dirties her living space.

And we'll stop there for introductions.

Shadows House is still in publishing but what's nice are the fully-colored chapters in tandem with Soumatou's cutesy art that work well in creating a mysterious atmosphere.

This is a GREAT manga full of mysteries and EXCELLENT art + storytelling.
It follows the story of Emilyko, the living doll, and her shadow, Kate. Emilyko has to clean every single day all the soot that comes out of Kate, but why is it? What's soot? Just what is a living doll? What does it mean to be "a face"? What even are shadows?

They live in a mansion owned by the Shadow family. Little by little you (and them) learn about their surroundings and context. What is that mansion, though? What on earth is the Shadow family anyway?

It is so easy to control people; just give them a false hope. Even if it is something that is highly disliked, a small lie will turn any hated activity in something that will be blindly followed without any questions. ‘Just keep on doing it and eventually your life will be better and you will be able to join the elite.’ It is too good to be true; however, a small part of your heart will still show a grain of hope.

In a nutshell
In a certain place, in a certain castle, there live people playing noblemen. If you want to know why, it is because read more

While Kuro by the same team was a niche hit, Shadows House now is an AOE crit hit. It’s colored, it has one of the most unique worlds in recent manga, it’s fantastic. Shadows House seems to be beloved in France, and the French are right - they know good bande dessinée when they see’em.

First of all – this is not slice-of-life as some people call It, evidently judging by the covers, the description, and the few first chapters. The manga starts slow, because of delayed exposition. The characters learn about the world together with us, cause the world is the main mystery here, read more
