One day I was looking for something similar to Deadman Wonderland, and then lucky me, I found this manga. Fukashigi Philia is a manga which story is a bit dark and tragic, but with the occasional very touching moments. For those who love phycological thrillers this might be a good read since the emotional state of every single character plays a very important role in the story.
The story revolves around an event that happened eight years prior to currents time, and how it affected the people around the main character. The main character, who is coping with what happened on his childhood by fighting
crime with his group of friends, finds a girl who will end up shattering his new way of life and eventually unlock the true of what happened in their past. Just like Deadman Wonderland, the girl the main character found has some kind of connection with him from his past, but he has no memory of it. Also, it has some fights and its characters have some kind of superpowers that are result of that event in the past. In general, the story was well written, it did close every plot holes and it was a bit unpredictable. The romance part of the story was very little and actually a bit comical, but it was really nice; especially the way it concluded.
Art was not bad, it was actually pretty decent. Facial expressions were really good as they showed the mental state of their characters, which as I mention before was a big part of this manga. The design for every single character was really cool and original.
In summary, it was a really good manga to read, perhaps a bit too short. However, it came to really good and somehow satisfying conclusion.
