On a rainy day almost a month ago, Kumo Shirasagi disappeared without a trace. In hopes of finding her, a group of six classmates convenes to search the Bird Forest, an abandoned amusement park on a remote hill in the countryside. Among these students is Gin Kurobe, a boy whose reasons for coming are as mysterious as his habit of muttering under his breath.

The group's search takes them to the foreboding structure looming over the park known as the Birdcage Castle. In an instant, they are knocked unconscious—and when they awaken, they find metal collars around their necks, each connected to another person.

The game they unwittingly entered is simple: they cannot turn back from any chosen path, and they must always move in pairs. The punishment for breaking either of these rules is certain death. With their lives on the line, Gin and his classmates must ascend through the bloody castle, battling the mind games thrown at them while searching for Kumo.

Torikago no Tsugai is a short mystery manga about a group of characters that try to survive in a death game ruled by an mysterious person disguised as an owl that has some complex with birds and couples.

Story: 7

The story isn't very much original, has a lot of clichés, and felt a lot rushed at the end, but sometimes it is very realistic and has some plot twists.

Art: 6

The art is pretty much average, nothing to complain about but nothing to praise.

Character: 6

Story - 6

The story revolves around pairs going into a death game of sorts chained together. The story really hammers in the themes of no regrets with how the pairs can’t go back after walking in certain rooms. I felt that the ending was very rushed with how twist was reliant on the main character not remembering one of the other characters in a flashback as a child. It also relies on the cliche of “the villain is the one who suggested we should do the thing”.

(TL;DR at the end)

I really like to give chances to mangas that didn't get an anime adaptation yet, I makes me feel like I'm in a team where I have to raise a voice to make an adaptation real. But man, in all of the manga that I've read, Torikago no Trugai was BORING. It was so boring that while I was reading it the first four chapters, I wanted to get an overview of the mangaka himself, Toutarou Minami. Then I saw that it was the first manga he ever wrote. "Good", it answered a lot of question that I read more
