Sometimes I read Manga and really think I'm missing something. Sometimes a joke, sometimes a plot point. But often there's something that keeps me back from really liking a title. But Natsume's storytelling here is so strong I never questioned what was happening or why. While the basic story is pretty typical high-school shonen stuff, it's done well enough that, at least based on this one volume, it stands out as something really special. There are hints at a real power struggle and moral crisis ...more

I'll say it now. I judged it. I saw a creepy boy on the cover and said--what is this that I am about to read? O.O
But I really did like it! It was such a tension-filled volume! I want to read the second volume so badly right now! I've never read a turning-into-an-ogre manga yet, and let me tell you, it's really clever putting the goody-two-shoes boy who always puts everyone ahead of himself, and turning him into a blood-thirsty ogre.

Art--I prefer more unique styles personally.

Baca duluuuuu pas zaman di Shonen Star, modal pinjam sama teman. Berhubung pas zaman menuju kelas 12 teman berhenti beli, yaudah deh nggak lanjut. Lalu, belum lama ini pas minta rekomen manga sama teman, tersebutlah satu judul ini. Akhinrya mulai baca deh. :D

I'm still new to manga and I'm having a hard time understanding the genre, but this is a very accessible series. The storyline was interesting, the characters well drawn and I was left wondering what will happen to our friend Mikito. I usually find action difficult to follow in manga, but the movement is very crisp and easy to follow. The emotions are clearly drawn- I really enjoyed watching Mikito's transformation. You could really see his conflicted emotions between feeling afraid and also fee ...more

This series was very different from the run of the mill shounen series. It didn't dwell too hard on the childhood friend, who usually ends up the love interest in most shounen series. The character didn't immediately become more skilled than everyone else in the manga. There was a lot of focus on his internal struggle and his connection to the titular Kurozakuro. Overall it was very interesting.

Enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. Doesn't cover any new ground, but the pacing is fast, with non-stop action as protag tries to avoid turning into a monster. Fun read

Finished up to book 2. I like it. It's very different and I'm not sure what will happen next, which is rare.

Slow build-up and not annoyingly over-the-top. Like a Bleach, only from the monster's POV.
