When I found this story I had just caught up to DEAD Tube and was looking for anything that could somewhat live up to the beauty of that masterpiece in terms of gore and art.
This manga encapsulates a horror genre. There is a good amount of gore and, but the overall story somehow manages never to get taken out. The ending, unlike many horror manga, ends on a great note with the hope that the story will never really end though it is over now.
Highly recommend this for anyone looking for a great story that is about long enough to keep you occupied for a week
Happy Reading read more

The main protagonist is Fujimara Kou, a 19 year old student, while trying to catch thief, car hits him and he ends in hospital. Incident with the car broke his bones around the eyes and he must go immediately to surgery, after it finished and while resting was attacked by a girl named Laura. Before the incident, he wore glasses but after he see perfect, maybe too perfect, because some people don’t have facial expressions. So for now I see him as a weird one.
Antagonist is Laura, was introduced to us on page 12, for now we don't know why Laura hate Kou but she want to take his eyes and while fighting, Laura told Kou “You see, this is because you're an extremely dangerous man…!". He almost died there but then three more girls entered room. The strange thing about her is that she was shot, crashed through the window from the third or fourth floor and remained alive, she is not human but from that point we don't know more info.
I bet you already waiting to check who's good here, ok ok Kou is good but we still don't know nothing about him. And for now he got saved by three girls who shot Laura, tried to kill her then vanished without trace so for now they are „good“ side. They also appear on the last page but who are those three girls?.
Action is dynamic and there is a good balance of scene… i am talking about the scenes that contain a lot of detail and those containing less. Further more, Yamada constantly attracts us to keep track of the action and discover more about Kou. My only wish is for Yamada to bring forward some cool abilities. What we have before us is only the first chapter, therefore i can't evaluate the manga but I have a feeling I'll be sure to check the next sequel. read more
