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 ...

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
I am disappointed. I was very interested in this novel after reading reviews.

The beginning of the novella is really amazing. The intrigue, suspense, tangled relationships between people: all of which allowed me to read more than half the book in a day. A gripping detective story, overflowing with teenage feelings and romantic moments.
And it was all very promising until I was confronted with the ending.

At first I didn't even realize the book was over. So crumpled, ridiculous and illogical is the ending that destroys all the excitement of the first half.

thanks to the artist for the quality, beautiful art
