My Blah, Blah's:
First off - is has somewhat annoying art.. BUT JUST A LITTLE!! Now that, that's out of the way. *ahem* The manga is the ONLY manga of it's kind that I've read and actually, liked! I'm not into.. er.. manga that deal with certain 'evil' things (can't say what they are, 'cause it might spoil it for some) and usually ignore them. This one though, it tricked me into reading it and.. well, snagged me and won't let go.. It has good characters and also some creepy, annoying characters. But, for the most part, the main characters are great. The manga is full of mystery, some what sad, and has some spooky things going for it.
Anyway, the manga is still ongoing and one can read it, here
I'm curious to see if any others have read it and like it or not. So.. there ya' have it!
And it just keeps esculating..
