Not you're average school days manga! As expected of the creator of Pet Shop of Horrors, this is a compelling combination of thinly veiled mysteries and innuendos about things only half-believed, half-defined and half-understood, unique and dynamic characters, dramatic and powerful plot devices, unexpected and well blended comical moments, and beautiful artwork, especially of animals (which also turn half-human to a select few!). I was really impressed at the realistic, if exasperating, politica ...more

An interesting manga. Not really awesome or engaging but a good one. In some ways similar to Matsuri Akino's other series, Petshop of Horrors - Akino obviously has issues with "man eating" animals ;P Also, after the characters are set, the manga basically contains stand alone stories where the main heroes help solve various paranormal "cases". The overall arc is only thinly represented.

I have never read any other works of Mr. Matsuri Akino, so this will be the first of his works I have come by.
I would say that this story was 'OK.' Not overly interesting, but not that bad of a bombshell.
I was not as engaging but there were a few witty moments, and some memorable artwork. I will continue to read the second volume just to stay optimistic.

I love the art style of course, being a big fan of Pet Shop of Horrors.
The story is where this series really shines though. It's set up as a "case of the week" series, but it's got such a good supernatural/mythological base that it could go on for quite awhile & remain interesting.
Karaoke OK

I'd say this is Matsuri Akino's best work ever. The plot the characters, it's all there and I love it!
