Seventeen-year-old Kei Miyama comes from a family with strange abilities. Birds flock to his grandfather as if he is the wind that carries them in the air itself. Kei, on the other hand, can talk to cars and prefers their company to humans—especially women. After moving to Iceland, Kei makes a living there as a freelance detective.

Whether it be resolving lovers' quarrels, locating missing people, or recovering lost items, Kei hops from case to case, traveling alone on the empty roads that span the rugged Icelandic landscape. But the secrets of the land of ice and fire are not the only mysteries ahead that Kei must unravel: an encounter with an aloof Icelandic beauty makes him recall local superstitions of ghosts that roam the wild lands at night.

To be honest, the first chapter of the manga was rather confusing for someone who didn't read the synopsis.

The story take place on Iceland where our main protagonist Miyama, Kei a 17 year old freelance detective who tries to live a life on Iceland while many people know him as a very good detective who can solve many problems. Kei himself thinks that he is just another normal detective you could find anywhere everywhere. Keeps thinking like that when you can read mechanical object minds like it was part of everyday life. Yes not only car, he can read every object mind that has ...

Welcome to Iceland! Let's take a trip across this volcanic island, coated in a slim layer of grasses and mosses. Let's see the sheep wander and breathe the salted air. Let's look at the tectonic plates and the birds that fly so high above them, and drive the roads with a talking car. Oh, and let's throw in a random murder mystery too, just to keep things interesting.

Go With the Clouds North by Northwest makes my heart ache because it has so much wasted potential. It begins with Kei, a character with the power to speak to cars. He solves small mysteries for the ...
