Gekkou is about the peculiar relationship between a cynical boy and a perfect girl. Said cynical boy is Nonomiya who spends day in day out in boredom, taking refuge from his dull life in his imagination. One fateful day, he happens upon the notebook of the much-rumored beauty Youko Tsukimori, neglected on the ground. Poking out from it is a scrap of paper with the unexpected title "Murder Recipe." His interest ignited, he immediately stuffs it into his pocket, only to find out the promising recipe contains nothing but scenarios that may or may not lead to deadly accidents, not even worthy of being called a plan. When he tentatively asks her about it the next day, she hasn't lost anything. But then her father dies. An accident...

So before I start this review, I just want to say that this is my first time to do such a thing and please go easy on me :P.

Now, let's get started:

Gekkou was the 3rd LN I've ever read, and to date it is probably my most favorite LN of all time. I've always favored manga and LN over anime, and my special favorites was romance. However, I've been known to enjoy some oddballs and in this case, Gekkou definitely fits the mark.

Now, I use the term "oddball" as a compliment in this situation: Gekkou is probably the most unique mix of romance and mystery read more

Gekkou ("Moonlight") is about the relationship of a pessimistic boy and a 'perfect' girl, who are united from a murder case. Nonoymia, the male lead, is trying to escape his boring and orthodox life, with his only comfort being his imagination. Whereas Tsukimori, female lead, is the well renowned and school-beauty. Nonomiya finds a notebook belonging to Tsukimori, which contains a scrap piece of paper titled ‘Murder Recipe’. But these ‘recipes’ are just scenarios that may or may not lead to fatal accidents. Upon planning to dismiss the ‘recipe’, Tsukimori’s father dies from an accident. On the surface, Gekkou is about a fatal misfortune leading read more

Upfront honesty: I'm not that much of a 'Light Novels' reader. Nothing too deep really, I'm just not the biggest fan of 'A lot of dialogue, little details' when it comes to the writing styles. While that is not the case for every Light Novel, for sure, I mostly found myself coming to those conclusions.

Gekkou isn't really that different - expect a lot of dialogue between the characters and, while there are some detailed descriptions, most of what's written is either monologue or dialogue. But, despite all that, I didn't mind.

Gekkou is rather short - so short I read it whole in one read more

Gekkou is a Light Novel written by "Mamiya Natsuki". If you're fond of Persona franchise. You probably hear him/her once or twice. It's revolves around a Boy named Nonomiya which is a bit pessimistic and sarcastic guy. *cough Hachiman.
He want's a peaceful way of life but it turns out to be another way around, since showing in his manners how bored he is in life.

Story : 9
I honestly not know how to say it, maybe i can't put it in words to express it but Gekkou is one of the hidden special treasure under pile of treasures. Why i said so because of it's read more
