Decent Thriller

Decent psychological thriller. Its short length made the story feel rushed and superficial. It would have been much more interesting to see the two inmates slowly break down and going at each other in their cell. The whole magic aspect was too unrealistic for a psychological thriller.

A dark story with some bizarre twists. The story provides a real sense of tension, and will make you wonder what's coming next. It made me think about the importance of freedom, and the power of human will. The situation the main character finds himself in is fairly unique, though the conclusion he arrives at isn't hard to predict. In the end, I felt satisfied. Recommended for fans of horror, action, and sci-fi.

Excellent.

This manga was Excellent. A Superbly done Psychological/Horror mix. One of the best, actually, for all its size. A must read for everyone who likes Psychological/Horror.

I wasn't satisfied with the ending, though, and that is why I gave it a 9.5.

Very good dark manga

This has to be one of the best dark manga I've read. The story was tight and moved along at a perfect pace. Even the ending was satisfying. The art was superb - sketchy and kinetic, but without losing focus or being confusing. Excellent manga.

I agree with you, J//.

Quite a good story, althought i would have liked the author to go deeper in the supernatural part. Short and enjoyable.

Really good. Reminds of Blue Heaven or Jirashin. Art is dark and sketchy and the story sends a shiver down the spine. Good read
