From Hidoi~! Translators:
Hyung Gee is an ordinary high student, but is unaware of the power he holds called “Shade”. His encounter with Soy completely changes his life around, as the hidden powers within him awakens, causing Soy and her Shade to lose their lives. Unaware of the mystery behind “Shade” and the role of a “Shade Magician”, Hyung Gee decides to join ‘School’, which is an organization that does research on “Shade Magicians”. Although Hyung Gee joined to find out more about his powers and his parents (who are currently missing), little does he know that this was all a plot from the School to get him to join.

It's an okay read good if your just looking for something to read 'cause your bored and it's quite quick. It started off really well but it gets abit rushed and if the ending is similar to how it is now it'll be annoying and bad. I also like it that they actually kill the characters 'cause it gets annoying if every manga you read noone actually dies when logically they should.

With only 3 volumes the ending must suck...
Either they simply stopped the series or made some hurried ending in 1-2 chapters.
I can't imagine there were no loose threads left. There were so many hidden things, motivations indicated in the first chapters.
It was a very promising start.

It's actually realistic, having characters die.

Unlike bleach or HSDK, where they go "I beat you, now let's be friends"

Made me feel uneasy, cuz they showed the girl's panties and then killed her, but w/e

too bad it's only 3 volumes.

I've heard that many people were against/uneasy about the whole killing off a character, but for me, that is a much needed relief. For me, too many manga series try to hold on to all of their characters, and can never seem to make a realistic choice of letting one go.
Take Bleach for example.... Fight after Fight, Blood and more Blood, but no death.... they just take the should-have-been-dead-enemies and made them their allies x.x like wtf... kill one of them already.
But ya, i think this series provides a somewhat refreshing read, giving off a more mature air about it. I'd almost say this were more on the seinen-y side of shounen.
It also has great potential if the author can pick up the pace a little and get the main plot going

It has stuff that a normal manga wouldn't. I mean when you think you know what the plot is and the person you thought was going to be the side character ends up getting killed by the main character. It was a WOW. Can't wait for future releases, keeps me anticipating what is going to happen next. A lot of secrets. Very Good.
