High school student Mizuki Mochizuki is in love with British rock artist Adam Lang, but it seems that he cannot see her for who she is, as he is still grieving the death of his ex-girlfriend, Sayaka Kamijou. Despite this, when Adam asks Mizuki over the phone to leave Tokyo with him, she agrees to meet him immediately. But as Mizuki crosses the road toward Adam, a car strikes her, and she fails to reach him.

One month later, a Mizuki lookalike is living in the abandoned mansion where Mizuki and Adam had spent two weeks together. While fifth-grader Hotaru Shiraishi is searching for her missing cat, she runs into this other girl and learns that her memories are gone—she cannot even recall her own name. Since the girl only remembers that she wants to be reunited with "Adam," Hotaru calls her "Eve." Hotaru enlists the help of her friend Sae Kayama and classmates Tetsu Sugisaki and Masaki Miura to solve the mysteries surrounding Eve—but they claim to be unable to see her!

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...
