Its my first review, and 'cause i'm not good with english so sorry in advance.
First, i think its pity this manga not really popular. even though the story itself is intriguing. The world of many creatures (Youkai, monster, spirit, etc.) and human is potrayed with simple storytelling. Like read a horror children stories, well afterall its folklore.
What i like about this manga, its about how human or creatures is not in good or bad side and each stories not simply always happy ending. But, left a bit of sadness or depressed feels.
Its about performer, Tanome, who travel around and meet other creatures or humans.
The story is episodic with each stories tell about Tanome handle the problems of many creatures with her eye tatoo in her hands. Each stories has implisit meaning.
The art its not common for manga, its rather like old japanese painting. The art made the story bit darker and good blend for horror stories.
Tanome is in the beginning of stories is kind of childish, but after Shao Tsu become her pupil, Tanome itself aventually become mature. Tanome is cool character, not look people or creatures is different being.
I enjoy each stories of the manga. And how Tanome will react to the problems she meets always intereristing.
