This book was great! This wasn't my first foray into Manga, but it was my first successful one. I wasn't sure about the illustration style at first, but it grew on me; toward the middle of the book it was almost equal to the story in why I continued to read. The writing used a lot of tropes about duality (would you expect any less from a book subtitled "black & white"), but it manages to find a fresh presentation for them.

One thing about Manga I found difficult was the translation. For example, in the original language a small amount of text in a large bubble usually indicates meekness. Font size indicates volume, etc. But here all of those indicators of tone are lost because it's never clear what the original text looked like.
