Sounds a bit like Goth, which is a good thing.
I'll probably never get around to watching it since it's live-action, but i'd quite like to. :/

Looks interesting. Add to my PTR list or sumthin, seeing as I doubt I'll watch the live-action adaptation.

That is some interesting series but too bad it is a live action and not a anime series or movie.

I was thinking the same thing. It looks like it would make a good anime.

Very interesting and intriguing plot... I wish it was getting an anime adaptation instead of a live action movie ;__;

This actually sounds like an interesting movie, definitely very Japanese. I'm assuming it'll have a bad end.
