Sempre più figo e intramato. Quando pensi di essere vicino alla soluzione dell'enigma ecco che le carte si rimescolano un altra volta, come da programma.
Molto meglio del film.

Goto's search for answers continues. In this volume, he works from the "search your past" hint, trying to remember anyone from school who might have hated him enough to lock him away for ten years.

He connects with "the girl" again, she appears throughout the volumes.

Goto actually meets his tormentor in this volume. The polite meeting doesn't shed much light on his situation though, as the man is unrecognizable to Goto. He points out that if Goto kills him, he'll never know the reason he was lo

en lo personal, creo que en este tomo el drama y el suspenso fueron los que llevaron la batuta en el asunto. El encuentro entre los rivales sí bien fue una experiencia bastante fuerte, lo interesante estuvo en esas intenciones ocultas de alias Dojima.
Stupidest thing that has happened in the story so far occurs in this book. I know he really wants to figure out why he was imprisoned but really his life would be a lot better if he just moved on and let the past go (but then there would be no story, so I should stop complaining).

Amazing. Really amazing. I can't understand why the 8 volumes haven't been collected into an oversized volume, but it's only a matter of time. The story is incredible and the artwork matches. So different (and so much more compelling) than the movie.

Finally, Goto comes face to face with the man who locked him away for 10 years... and still has no idea who he is. The series continues it's level of excellence here and makes me want to keep reading even though it's far to late at night.

Carrying over the action and tension left by chapter 2. Fits as an action movie, not in the way that Park Chan-Wook imagined it to be (his is way sicker and more amazing).
Finally some answers or close to answers. What's the deal with this psycho stalker anyways?
slow moving as hell, but i still cant stop reading.
