Subjectivity   
Rating: N/A

to write a horror thriller with ghosts and conspiracy while sticking to objectivity is a near impossible feat
yet its what this author attempted
whats different makes this different from other manga is as opposed to the others were you know more and you have a large view of the truths and characters
in this one you don't know any more truths or view then the protagonists
and you get fooled when they get and you believe what they believe
and also one of the antagonists is also victim to this
and thats what makes this more realist then any other horror story

Another manga that would make a good movie   
Rating: 8.5 / 10.0

but I guess it doesn't have to since it's a good manga. This is the story of kids that have all been hurt or abandoned by their parents. So they already don't like adults, when the kids start to disappear one by one, paranoia and distrust build up.

In that sense, this is a nice story about paranoia, especially coming from children. I wasn't at all disappointed with it. I've read this twice and after you know the ending, it cuts some of the tension out of the story, but towards the end(around the last two volumes), It started to pick up again. When you see the deaths and what's causing it, that aspect remains quite good.

The first time you read it, is when it's going to be the most involving, to the point that I didn't even notice how curvacious one of the teachers is drawn.

really, some people don't like the ending because they are expecting something, but if you hold no expectation whatsoever and hope or something fresh and new, this will be a great manga for you smile

Average Survival Manga   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

The survival genre of manga is a refreshing change of pace from the overbearing traditional action manga in shounen. That said, this series is average among survival manga. The story and characters are engaging enough but the way they are handled puts this manga in average territory. You can tell certain events happen purely for the shock value and many plot twists were visible well before they happened. Still though, I found it hard not to enjoy the manga.

That was an enjoyable way to fill in a bit of time, but it's pretty dumb. I wish the hidden mysteries and such had turned out to be as interesting as it was implied - but yeah, 'a big nothing'. It's worth reading, but I doubt I'll remember anything about it in a couple of months.

Misunderstanding?   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
This manga builds up all this supense and drama and in the end.... it's a big misunderstanding of events to the point of me laughing so hard that i was fooled. Anyway, the story spills in suspense and mystery and tries to let the reader figure out the mystery of what is going on in the manga. It's pretty subjective and the reader can have different secerios in their head on how it's going to end.

I think it was pretty good from begining to end because the ending catches you off guard without warning, at least for me anyway. P.S That teacher with the glasses is scum and deserves to rot in hell:-)

Disappointment

The one thing I can say about this one is that the ending is STUPID! It starts out really interesting and promissing, there are so many twists that the mangaka could have used as the ending, but it turned out to be a big nothing....Really disappointing!
I will give it a 4/10 just for the interesting start...

Read at your own discretion

The problem with this story is that ultimately it relies on the reader's interpretation of events. The last chapter sums up and explains most if not all of the mysteries presented, but in the end makes the reader wonder if the events that occured were objective or relative to the characters experiences. In other words, the questions you have while reading this never get completely answered. For me, even though the series is done, it feels incomplete and I feel a bit disappointed.
