Staff Reviews

What happens when the person you thought you knew isn’t that person anymore? A riveting study in the questions of growing up, growing apart, and budding homosexual desire. This manga immediately drew me into summer in Japan touched by the supernatural, and had me mesmerized by both the story and beautiful, evocative artwork (down to the ambient sounds!). A perfect melding of BL and horror, I was blown away by this manga and can’t recommend it enough.

Carrying on at school and hanging out as if nothing has changed—as if Hikaru isn’t gone—would be crazy...but when it looks so very like Hikaru...and acts so very like Hikaru...
