"My road, my story end here for now. But theirs continues. I don't know where they;re headed bit, I just know they'll find a way. As long as they keep walking, the "path" wil cime into being under their feet" The doctor in Vol.3 ch. ??

After reading this, I'm actually surprised that there's no anime adaptation for this, nor acknowledgment, This story is a 10/10 for me and here are the reasons why

Story 10/10

The story is followed from the beginning till the end, despite having some "filler" chapters, they manage to connect it into the main story. Every sub-story has a reason, not read more

So, since this lovely manga doesn ´t have any reviews I will do my best to write one. This manga deserves it. So I will start with the most important question of all: Is this manga worth reading? To which I can only answer:Yes it is, but it's not manga for everybody. While this manga has lovely art style and cute looking characters it´s actually quite dark. It also is kinda hard to describe (at least for me), but I will try my best:

Shoulder-A-Coffin Kuro is a manga that is quite underrated. Having heard rave reviews from a fan, I had high hopes reading this, and it delivered.

Story: 10/10
Kuro's story is simply beautiful. What might simply be an episodic chapter for one, is a part of a subplot that slowly tells itself over the course of the many chapters. Each chapter on its own is great, with Kuro being changed by and changing the people she meets, through what they say or what they do. Each of these subplots create a beautiful story that is what makes it a masterpiece.

Art 10/10: Despite being in 4koma format, Satoko Kiyuzuki read more

Story: 9/10
Pretty damn good, the anthology type chapters are good and the over-arching plot had me hooked. Many characters turn up in other chapters too so it doesn’t just feel like a bunch of random, unrelated stories. Some chapters were basically filler with no impact on the overarching plot or our understanding of the main characters however. There are fun adventurous chapters as well as some pretty dark and emotional chapters (seriously it gets pretty dark). The mystery of the witch was intriguing. The subplots were brought together masterfully. I liked how Kuro and Sen's backstory was handled, with it being built up over the read more
