Synopsis

Beautiful creatures called 'Alichino' grant any wish to those who find them--but at a price!

A young lady searching for an Alichino wants to bring her brother back to life. She meets Tsugiri, a handsome young man who she thinks is an Alichino. While Tsugiri turns out to be a mere mortal, he does have a mysterious connection with these rare creatures--a connection that brings him and those around him grave danger!

Reviews

Feb 24, 2022
Despite what many say about this manga, I really did enjoy it. The art is absolutely stunning and detailed and it's just something I personally really liked the most about this manga. However, it really did drag out details that didn't need to be in the story, mostly since there were parts of the story that immediately left me confused so it was hard to follow along. Worst part about the manga was that it ended just when things started getting more interesting, leaving me wanting more yet it just sadly never got the continuation it needed. I do believe it could've been much more ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (Unknown/17 eps)
The synopsis about 'beautiful creatures' and the stunning artwork on the cover gave me high hopes for this manga.
It's too bad I just can't seem to get into this story, even after reading it twice.
I disliked the fact that the story starts of too slow, that it became boring. With a slow story like that, it' get's hard to find a likeable character.

What I did like about this manga was the AMAZING artwork, however I'm afraid that's just not enough to make me buy the second volume.

Preliminary (9/17 eps)
I dropped this manga because the I felt like the story was talking about this big thing that's supposed to be kept secret from the reader. I know that keeping secrets from the reader can make for good plot twists, but if it's not a drawn-out action series, and it goes on for more than 5 chapters, it makes for an interest-losing device.

The eyes on the people bothered me. Everything was so detailed, but then the eyes just put everything out of whack. HUGE eyes does not make for a "beautiful" person. And a lot of the panels were just black, or a close up ...
