During the spring of 1998 in the town of Yomiyama, Kouichi Sakakibara is supposed to start classes at a new school. Unfortunately, he is stuck in the hospital due to a collapsed lung. When he is wandering the hospital, he meets a dark-haired girl named Mei Misaki wearing his new school's uniform—an innocent chance encounter that will have more repercussions than he knows.

When Sakakibara is finally able to attend classes at Yomiyama North Middle School, he notices his classmates treat Misaki as if she doesn't exist. He tries to uncover the mystery around her, but his classmates' behavior only gets stranger. And when fellow students in Class 3-3 inexplicably begin dying horrible deaths, Sakakibara begins to question a link between Misaki and the rising body count.

The human mind is an amazing thing.

The premise of this curse in this class is that there was a kid, 26 year prior to the story, who was well loved, athletic, smart, and all that wonderful stuff.

So much so, they believed that he was part of the class still. And yet, when the graduation photo was taken and developed, the kid, Misaki, showed up on the picture.

Ever since then, there is an “extra” person ...

Mixed Feelings
So i am not too sure if it was just the version i read, but the translation was just awful. It was hard to read from time to time. Even though it was a short story it felt bland mostly. Nothing too crazy was happening other than the shocking deaths they had. The first one really caught my attention, and had me reading the rest, but after it kinda just fell off. Other than the surprise ending this manga was a 5 for me. The art style is nice, but the story was ok at most. I feel like the characters were not very good ...

God almighty, I never knew reading 20 chapters could be this tedious...

Most of us came across Another via the anime released in 2012. However, this manga is not the source material; both the anime and manga are adaptations of a hit Japanese mystery novel written in 2009. If you want to read the source material, read the novel. Regardless of you being here due to nostalgia or as a newcomer, I advise you go watch the anime, as it takes less time to finish than this dismal read. Of course, that is if you are that determined to experience Another; if not, I suggest you ...
