Ririko lost her parents and siblings in a mysterious incident where details remain in the shadows. Before Ririko moves to her new home in Kaminoshiro, a detective gives her a letter that her father wrote before his death, which contained a card with a black and white checkered pattern on it.

At her new school, Ririko becomes friends with Maya and has some interest in a male student named Shirou. She questions about the black clock tower that stands in the center of the town, but no one bothers to answer the question. Her new life in her new home seemed all as well until one day Maya calls Ririko out and takes out the same checkered card that Ririko was given to her and she summons some unknown creature! As Ririko is in confusion as to what's going on, Shirou appears and says "Not another one..." What's going on around here?

Manga has extremely abusive ideas, images and themes

---> if you aren't bothered with reading the whole review (you scallywag) then skip to the Themes and Ideologies paragraph

Ririko is an annoying skull-picture-clad girl whose father had just died. And instead of leaving the mystery to the clueless cops, she decides she wants to play hero and nab the criminal herself.

For example, we get told of a mysterious black read more

The story starts off a bit slow with a girl named Ririko who had just lost her father under strange circumstances and is only left with a mysterious card. Along the way she meets two quite interesting characters. One named Shirou who is serious, smart, and hates read more

Well, let's begin...

Story - 3/10 I had no idea what was going on. It was so confusing and rushed, I feel like it would have been a lot better if they slowed it down. It seems like they're trying WAAAAY too hard to put gothic / psychological themes in it. This manga reminds me so much of Pandora Hearts. It's like a combination of Pandora Hearts, Black butler, and Death Note. I'll go on more about this in the art and character section.

Art - 8/10 I liked it. I feel like they over did it with the read more
