Despite his kind-hearted and sensitive nature, Ian Hasumi is called "Ian the Liar" for one reason: he can see things that nobody else can. This includes fairies and "Tokage," a malicious doppelganger with lizard-colored green hair. When Ian reunites with Rin Ishinagi, his childhood friend and the one person who once believed him, news of "fairy murders" spreads around the city.

Victims of these murders are easily identified by the wing-like bloodstains on their backs. Ian stumbles upon a murder where he encounters Kaito, a mysterious man who also discovers the crime scene. Kaito is the owner of an odd shop that sells crystal cubes with insects frozen inside. Insisting that Ian did not see anything, Kaito gifts him a crystal cube with a lizard inside before bidding him farewell.

Unfortunately for Ian, Tokage utilizes the cube in an attempt to take over his body and leave Ian as a spirit, destined to perish. Determined to change his fate, Ian makes a contract with none other than Kaito and his stingy fairy companion—all while hoping to reunite with Rin again.

Story: 8

Going into this Manga, do not at all expect a story that is, how to put it, one of ones happy go lucky fairy tales. Expect something more along the lines of Brothers Grim and those stories, with a great deal of taking from the fokelore of many aspects of quite a few cultures, capturing the darker side that is rarely seen any more. Also, while it ends on a happy note, there is also a note of saddness to it.

Fairy Cube is an excellent manga. It's short, but good. It leaves people standing on the edge of their seat until the end, at least it did for me. This is one of those "Fairy tale/fantasy with a dark side" stories. It has an enjoyable plot, but it's one of those where you'd have to read the entire thing to learn the whole story.

It's characters are excellent. It's short, so it doesn't have much time for development, but it pulls it off well. Almost all the characters are related to at least one or two of the other characters through some past event. You ...
