Every manga from Hiroki Endo has a unique athmosphere and a perfect story. This collection of short stories is almost as good as Eden series. Underappreciated and recommended!
Kelly Lynn Thomas
The first story in this collection was really good. The second one was so-so. The last one, however, was absolutely fantastic, and made the collection worth reading. I like that the art is simple and clean, and not overly stylized or dramatic. It fit well with the dark tone without saturating you in the darkness.

The last story in this collection didn't leave my mind for months. http://www.genjipress.com/2007/08/tan...
