Synopsis

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.

Preliminary (11/? eps)
Having only 11 chapters translated so far it seems to be a stretch to say that one could give a proper review of the story. However the basic of it is as follows: a 17 year old Japanese kid on Iceland can talk to cars and does detective stuff.

While that might not seem like the most interesting or mature premise it has led to a wonderful first 11 chapters. The mystery aspect of this manga is very well written and compliments the incredible artwork very well. The author choosing Iceland as the manga’s setting is also a perfect match for her art. The breath ...

47 Chapters in so far (caught up to translated one)
Not too much going on but it keeps you hook up and wanting to know more.
Slice of life, very unique story which evolved around our meat-crazed MC with his power to communicate with machines which he used to solve his inquiries in Iceland the country. MC lost his family except his little brother and decided to move to Iceland to live a free life where he can roam around in his Jeep (gift from grandpa).

Art 8/10
Story 9.5/10
Character 8/10 (I am sure we have not seen the real sides of the characters)

Preliminary (47/? eps)
This manga easily could've been a 10/10 for me, the gorgeous scenery, the lovable whimsical characters, the quaint nature of it all. But it just has this persistent issue of meandering and unfocused writing, it flip-flops between the mc taking up odd-jobs and living his life in Iceland, and this murder mystery with his little brother. Now it's a half-baked combination of both. The mystery does not even have the majority of the focus, but because it's presented like the central conflict, it demands all attention and detracts from the other stuff she seems to enjoy drawing and writing more.

Regardless, I personally enjoyed this manga, ...
