Description
From Storm in Heaven:

Ten years ago, there was an explosion at Hisano's apartment building. She would have been there, but she'd been hit by a bike ridden by a boy in blood-stained clothes. He dropped a fake gem when it happened, and she's been hanging on to it as a good-luck charm ever since. Now Hisano's in high school. One of her teachers was murdered, and the police are investigating. A young man suddenly appears carrying the toy the gem belonged to. And perhaps... can he also see the hallucinations Hisano has always been plagued with? Everything is connected as the pattern slowly rises to the surface.

A wonderful, gripping tale with a great twist at the end. The art is pretty good too. I'm only giving it an 8 cuz it's a little too dark for my taste but for ppl who like psychological stuff u shld totally read this.

Just two volumes makes this manga a must-read one. Just two volumes to drag you into the twist with all its faces: from romance to mystery and tragedy. You experience the laughs and the tears, the concern and despair. I must say this short manga is extremely well-plotted, considering it just carries all these genres smoothly. It also has a unique use of metaphor, from the hallucinating sheep to the coelacanth itself. And, one last but not least thing, the art is really gorgeous!!!

Being that it is a mystery, it is quite different from most shoujo manga. It's not entirely confusing, since most of the time I speed read, but it does have an intricate plot line. The story ended with a good closing and the symbolism of the coelacanth and the sheep were cool. The art was satisfiable, without being overbearingly cute and fluffly. It was a good read overall.

it seems that even the fish is a symbol.... wow... this really is a great manga... being able to tie in such good art, a little shoujo for the fans, and lots of mystery. it is brilliant. It even seems that throughout the whole two volumes, there was a consistency of the plot and symbolism. I guess the title is pretty cool in itself, since a coelacanth (i looked it up in the dictionary) is a fish that was thought to be extinct, BUT IT ACTUALLY STILL EXISTED OUT OF NOWHERE... just like that hot yunagi yukinari-sama~ THE MURDERER WAS SUPPOSED TO BE NONEXISTANT CUZ IT WAS A "GAS EXPLOSION"

I just finished it now and the second book's plot is very refreshing and unexpected.I appreciate Hisanos character development, but in some ways(and to be expeted in a realistic story) she is still very shoujo-ish, however, there are some slight and significant changes. And the symbolism =u= -I wish that the rating system went higher- was very consistent. This manga is deffinetly not a waste of time!

I can't wait till it is is liscensed!!!! XD

it was weird in the first 2 chapters... good in the next 2... intriguing in the next... but then nearing the end... i had somehow lost interest... it was overall quite good, but a little short i suppose, considering how rushed the ending seemed... though most loose ends were tied up... i somehow found the ending to be quite unsatisfying...

sheep~ creepy sheep~ =/

Just had read it, the thing I found most interesting about it is that it isn't shoujo-ish at all, at least from what I could see in the first chapter. Drama and Mystery seems to be stronger than shoujo, so it's indeed an interesting combination so far, it gives a psychological feeling too. Art is good. I'm looking forward for further releases.
