This manga had an absolutely great beginning, with the first half essentially being a genre mashup of both cuteness and tragedy/horror/apocalypse. The world itself is like a subdued, moe version of the setting (though not the plot) of Attack on Titan.

The second half of the manga, in contrast, feels far too short, and the ending in particular could have easily been 30+ pages longer than it actually was. The world just seemed kind of under-explored. A pity. The result is a good manga, but it could've been amazing.

This story has a unique unsettling way of making you think something is wrong but you can't quite put your finger on it. The cute character designs contract nicely with this ominous atmosphere. Being entirely full-color makes it stand out and the short length makes for a brief entertaining read.

There are few things in the world more frightening than cute little girls in danger. When the girl does not KNOW she's in danger, and displays the happy innocence of a child who's always been safely cared for, it's worse. For that reason, this story would be very hard to read, if it weren't for one additional factor -- the amazing drawing in this manga, which consists mostly of gorgeous full-color pages, featuring the cutest children imaginable, and lovely, impeccably-rendered settings.

I don't know how this is going to end, and I fear a sad, maybe awful, outcome, but in the meantime I see this story as symbolic. Life often places bad things around us that we don't notice. Only in retrospect do we see they were there. And sometimes we also see that our blindness at the time was blessed.

This is a very rare kind of manga. I think it provides just about the highest manga art I've discovered coming out of Japan, surpassed in my experience only by YOKOHAMA KAIDASHI KIKOU.

That's all I can say for now. The story revolves around a girl, Coco, and her cat, Kuro. The cat doesn't seem very much like one though. Though, the readers have been given many hints till now, I haven't been able to arrive at any concrete conclusions. But my speculations are going to keep me occupied. looking forward to more of this ^^

This series is very cute and quick to read. Each chapter is a single page, all of them colored beautifully and well detailed.
I really look forward to know what happened to Coco in the past!
