Shadows House
Volume 1


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?

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Shadows House has been published in English by Yen Press since July 12, 2022. It has also been published in Polish by Waneko since June 7, 2021.

Shadows House sadly belongs to one of the most underrated pieces of fiction I've witnessed so far, simply because the premise is not appealing enough for most people, and therefore it is ignored by the mainstream.

This manga took me by storm. I'm a huge fan of the ones that start out innocent, even possibly mistaken as a kids show, only to get incredibly dark. In that sense, this manga hits the spot perfectly.

But the plot itself is great. The author sets up a solid foundation and links back to things from the very beginning that you wouldn't think twice about at that point - but not so that you forget it happened. It makes you go, "Holy shit! THAT's what that meant!?"

The characters are amazing. Really great development. It's rare for a manga that introduces so many characters ...

"Shadows house" is a mistery, slice of life manga which shows the day by day of Emiliko (the face) and Kate (her's shadow) through the house, as well as their intereactions with the other shadows and faces that live in that same house. In this universe "faces" reconize themselves as living dolls, and therefore, they have the ultimate purpouse of serving their shadow, by cleaning this "dust" their masters release, performing good-night kisses, or even making the facial expressions of the feelings, that is somethig shadows can't do.

The manga has great qualities in story, especially because of the way the story-telling is built, by ...
