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.

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?

Chapter by chapter you gather ...

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 ...
