I have to admit that Aku no Higan has a pretty cool premise, absolutely full of potential. Just look at the summary above. Exchanging one's life years for riches and power, or the other way around, sacrificing your fortune for longer life... Just imagine what you could do with that. Imagine the opportunities for character drama, hard choices, moral dilemmas, world building and thematic exploration.

Hello, my dear reader.

Let me tell you a little story.
What story, you might ask? Well, it's your story, and mine, and that of many others. How do I know? Because it always follows the same pattern.

It all started when you heard that Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata were working on another manga together. Great news, right? You loved Death Note and/or Bakuman, and you were instantly hyped up for more awesomeness from the power duo. You were perhaps a little surprised that a new manga coming from them didn't have any buzz, but you thought nothing of it at the time.
