Amnesia Labyrinth, Vol. 1 (Amnesia Labyrinth #1)
When high school student Souji Kushiki, an academic achiever and talented athlete from a well-to-do family, returns home from summer vacation, he finds that his sisters Harumi, Youko and Saki have changed. Their strangely clingy behavior borders on the inappropriate and bizarre, yet Souji just brushes off their mysterious conduct at first.
However, when Souji arrives at sch
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. I LOVE Tanigawa’s “Haruhi” series, and have read somewhere around half of the published novels and manga (not to mention am a loyal fan of the anime and movie), so I’m pretty familiar with his brief, slapstick-style writing. Just by looking at the cover, I thought that this might be anoth ...more
This is a head trip manga. If you're looking to find concrete plot or somewhat easy explanations, you're looking at the wrong series. This isn't something that's all that easy to read, I must admit. There's a lot of stuff going on & I have a feeling that this is most definitely somethi ...more
The story concerns Souji, scion of the powerful (and very screwed up) Kushiki family. He's spent the last two years in boarding school trying to avoid the circus back home, but when his elder brother disappears, S ...more
This manga is very confusing, and at times, I was not completely sure what was actually going on except that Sasai wanted to find the murderer of the 3 studen ...more
Ugh, what a dreadful way to start a review!
Even when I was a kid I wasn't a fan of comics. I remember that a friend and her brother (and this is when I was at primary school, i.e. aged 5 through to 10) had Superman and Batman comics, and I think my girlfriend had some girl-themed ones, and I would read them when I went round to her house to play but I didn't care if I read them or not. If you ...more
Amnesia Labyrinth has to have the MOST complex story for a manga I have ever read, there are so many red herrings and plot twists that have left me absolutely confused as to who the true murderer is. That being said, I am absolutely loving the fact the I don't have the foggiest idea on who the culprit behind the murders is.
From what I was able to gather while reading Amnesia Labyrinth (if I'm right) there's a bit of multiple-personaliti ...more
Filled with disturbing subtext that eventually turns to dark family secrets, Amnesia Labyrinth is aimed for a more mature audience than that of Nagaru Tanigawa's more famous work, the Haruhi Susumiya series. Indeed, some content is probably not what parents want even their high schoolers seeing, even though they almost undoubtedly ...more
Could his sisters be linked to the heinous murders somehow? And is Souji next in line to Death's door..?
