Synopsis

Mizuki is a girl who wants to run away from her life. As she smiles at everything sad that happens to her, her soul becomes heavier day by day. Her escape door is Adam, an English singer. But is he really real, or is everything they've been through just a dream? Adam sees his dead Japanese girlfriend in Mizuki, but strangely, nobody, apart from a girl who met her at the gates of heaven, can see Mizuki. This is a story that takes place somewhere between dream and reality.

Last Quarter… The last phase of the lunar cycle before the moon fades into perpetual darkness. Kagen no Tsuki (Last Quarter) is a Shoujo, Supernatural, Mystery, Romance with a story unlike anything Ai Yazawa has conjured up but still manages to retain the style she is renowned for.

Well similar to Ai’s more well-known manga Nana, Kagen no Tsuki starts of with an incredible prologue (one of my best in fact) and any unsuspecting reader would not believe it to be a prologue until it hits them. It is then that the story truly begins. Trying my best not to spoil anything; Kagen no Tsuki follows read more

The best thing about this manga is the story. The characters, the art, and everything else just faded away while I was reading it. At the start you think that this is all it's ever gonna be. The protagonist met a boy who drew her in and blah blah. To be honest I didn't read the synopsis, so I guess that's why I felt that way. But as I read the chapters, I JUST COULDN'T STOP. I need to know what happened.

The story draws you in, holds you tightly and exploits every bit of emotion it can get out from you. It's about true love. read more

I would like to stop for a moment and applaud Ai Yazawa for her efforts on this story.


Story: 8/10 (Very Good)

The story starts off in a rather mysterious way; as if the characters' world belong to only them. Imagine an invisible circle surrounding these characters, if you may. So, there is something spiritual at first... That spiritual feeling was very intruding, which allowed me to read further.

The story appears to be possibly predictable at first, but then it takes a twist. Sometimes, the story was confusing as well, as readers could only continue to read more to find out the answers...

I'm proud to say that read more
