After Chapter 14 the story shifts, bringing in more drama and suspense. At this point the character growth and story progression begins to slow down. The main focus is rebuilding the manga to shift the story from the initial outbreak to finding Hanazono, along with the two groups fighting for power. The blood and gore gets toned down a bit, to really focus redirecting the story.
This is still worth the read even with this shift in the story.
***END OF UPDATE***
A mysterious outbreak that turns love into bloodlust that begins to run rampant. Kamishiro (MC) has a vivid hallucination of stabbing his childhood friend, Hanazono
through the throat with an umbrella. Without a clear understanding of what this bloodlust and struggling to control it, the real story and mystery begins.
Kamishiro is nicely developed over the 14 chapters that is currently published. He learns how to control and manifest his power for the "greater good". After the massacre at his school, Hanazono goes missing and now he is tracking down any information he can to find her.
The artwork is fantastic, it is nicely detailed, bloody and on point. I enjoyed reading this to the point that I couldn't stop until there was nothing left. If you enjoy a violent and gory manga, this one needs to be on your list. It is highly underappreciated and will probably go unrecognized but it is well worth your time to read.
Honestly, this manga had such great potential and once the second arc kicked off, no clue what had happened, what is going on and seeing all this great start go right downhill. Right now with the way the story development stands, if it continues on like this I will drop it.
