Normal. Carefree.

That was Chiko's life before the day she found the cell phone. Before the voice on the other end said she had scant minutes to save the life of someone she'd never met.

Line was published in English by ADV Manga on October 10, 2005.

Short, sweet, and to the point, Line has more potential than it has actual content. That doesn't make it bad though. On the contrary, Line's potential is such that I can't help but feel the 1-volume series was quite good, based more on that potential than the content. It had the right idea going, a good sense of suspense building, and managed to do it all in a few short chapters.
