Would you like sugar with your dark? No, I prefer it grim.

Pretty damn good series. It's like a more mature version of Holes meets Lovecraft with vague hints of romance tossed in for good measure. The fact that (so far) the main character doesn't participate in any actual conflict makes it an interesting read. The series isn't quite horror as much as it is simply DARK. Don't expected to be scared by anything.

Also, the Cryptkeeper from Tales from the Crypt is in this. Apparently this is the crypt he keeps. Who'da thunk.

Totally surprised! When i was looking for a good manga, i found this. First chapter, i thought it was just normal and boring story, but everything changed!

I mean, WOW o.O! It's very good, recommended!

The art is not the best, but the storyline, I just love it.
It's kinda romantic for a shounen story, and I just love the happy ending for both of them, perfect!

This series was amazing. It keeps one hooked right from the beginning and executes the storyline beautifully all the way to the end. One of the best short stories I've ever read in my life.

I didnt have any expectations when i started this...but it turned out to be a surprise, a good one! i usually hate the characters who were in prison, because it reminds the protagonist of Deadman Wonderland, but i really like this one. I also love Melia. She is so cute and beautiful. An awesome shounen/shoujo filled with mystery and romance*.*

It is surprisingly good. When I first saw this, all I'm thinking is that it could use half an hour or so of my life. But Oh My Goodness! I loved the story. It was complex, horrifying, and touching all at the same time. The story's dark but it gave me an extremely warm feeling at the end (no lie!).

Perfect 10! One of the best I've read.

It's a great short story to read, with a horror twist. Don't judge the manga by its title; it's far from being "sweet" and "sugary". I was touched by how much Muoru was willing to sacrifice for Melia. The story ended so quickly, I thought there would be more to it, but I'm satisfied with the ending.

I actually read it one sitting, and at the end i felt completely satisfied. It was a truly great manga and I highly recommend it. I liked the whole concept with the undead and whatnot and overall the romance was great.

Honestly this manga is too slow. Things only gets going after seven-teen chapters. Don't come into this manga expecting fast development and action scenes. At heart this is a horror manga that takes its time to tell the story. The main protagonist on this one is quite good. I thought at first that he's just one in a long line of lame male protagonist. But he's actually kind of smart, has guts and doesn't mind getting his hands dirty to achieve his goal. I look forward how the story develops.

Update: Wow. That ended much sooner than I expected. I would have love to read more.
