Will the two desperate investigators manage to solve the mystery before it's too late?

Craziness. Insanity. Mania. There is everything in this damn place, this damn city called Soil, at first glance, is just the city of dreams for many, but even the most beautiful dream can become the most horrible nightmare. The reality we see is just a false plan that hides something beyond the understanding of every living being, people who say they have seen the "strange organisms", are classified as crazy, but they saw something unusual, maybe this is the origin of their insanity , ...

Preliminary (56/90 eps)
I have to say, this is my first time reading something like this... It's what you called DIFFERENT.

The story is based on your, kinda mystery a bit of detective like genre and starts off with a missing person. It then carries on and gets intense as strange things start to happen to the two detectives that have came to investigate. The unexpected and did i read right that 'aliens' called the 'foreign organisms' have like came to invade this town called 'Soil''? It makes you think...

WTH is wrong with this town?

I rated this a fair, as the plot does make sense ...

This is one of those works where the author believes existence is something’s everything and anything is nothing. Look, I’m not a writer, but I think I can write something better. Anyways, spoilers ahead.

You get glimpses of bizarreness in “Soil” from the beginning. The art is pretty limited yet somewhat detailed. The characters, even the main ones, seem normal and yet they have shticks that make them seem unreliable. The setting takes place in a normal-looking town yet the place feels quite ominous and fake. And the story just seems to be going on without ever having a predictable aura. Seems like a nice foundation ...
