Synopsis

Itsuki Kamiyama has a strange fascination with the grotesque and the macabre, being particularly interested in disturbing murders. He can stomach even the most hideous crimes committed by the most warped humans and is drawn to unsolved cases like a moth to a flame. However, he is not merely intrigued by these cases—he is also adept at solving them.

While following the leads of an especially odd chain of crimes, Kamiyama gets familiar with his classmate Yoru Morino. As he spends more time in her presence, he begins to realize that she is more like him than he expected. With every case he unravels, Kamiyama slowly starts to uncover Morino's carefully shrouded past.

As Kamiyama's mask of normalcy steadily slips to reveal his dark tendencies, he finally allows himself to wonder—what if he were the one to take Morino's life?

Goth - short, mystery, psychological, horror manga. The title alone sounds pretty intriguing.

Goth is a story about two students who are basically obsessed with death and murder cases. These students, Yoru Morino and Itsuki Kamiyama, don't initially talk to each other in school. After a brief encounter, they realize how much they have in common. Yoru usually ends up getting involved with some murderer and Kamiyama ends up either solving the case or making a fool of the criminal.

Art - I actually really liked the art. It was straight-forward and very easy to interpret, and I think that type of style was a read more

Simply beautiful artistic skills and amazing plot.Though it's only one volume,it's making your heart beat with every second,while you enter into the world of darkness.

At first it was a novel,byOtsu-ichi,later adapted into manga(Kendi Oiwa)
The story follows two high-school students,who are fascinated by murder.Somehow,Yoru Morino,one of the main characters,is like an atraction to the 6 murder cases she is solving with Itsuki Kamiyama,her classmate.

Fair warning: Know what your getting with this manga. Its not so much scary as it is filled with gore [literally it shows mutilated bodies/body parts]. The horror classification falls more with personalities of the characters.

I thought it was good but not amazing.
I don’t read much of this genre but I'm into horror/psychological movies and things like that.I read something similar to this beforehand too. If my reading order had been reversed I'm sure I would have found this more fascinating.

It’s about two students who have an interest in death and murder. They take interest in several cases of serial killings in the general area. read more

My imagination went for a stroll when I read the title 'Goth' of this Manga. What could I expect? A medieval setting, perhaps, with castles and lightning, witches and torture? Or would it be about gloomy guys in long dark coats?

It happened to be neither, and for that I am thankful. Goth in this title refers more to interest in the dark side of life. The sensation that gory images and horrible stories give people. It is about a girl and a boy who try to find out the motives behind certain killings in their neighbourhood, out of nothing but interest. When they start read more
