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.

So far Hohzuki Island has been letting me down. So many mysteries seem to end in bad explanations or are yet unresolved. With every chapter ending in a cliffhanger, it's putting a lot of stress on the finale.The series will succeed or fail on the the strength of reveal because it doesn't have great art or characters. Right now I don't see it delivering but I'll endure and hope for a satisfactory ending.

Edit: Finished. A lot of set up for little pay off. Can't recommend.

This is a decent psychological thriller. The story has a lot of suspense and keeps you entertained. The children's backgrounds help highlight the atmosphere of mistrust and drive the story forward.

However, the story is set up in a way that the mystery of the island should have been revealed halfway through. In order to maintain the mystery and suspense, the events become more and more forced and outrageous. This change is so obvious that you'll likely guess the ending halfway through.

Overall, this is an average suspense story and you can read it if you enjoy psychological thrillers.

This manga i picked up to read by pure chance and got to say was surprised it excellent story full of suspense and action that keeps you on the edge from the 1st chapter and keeps on getting better and better all the time, I can not wait to read more of this store so fingers crossed its done by a fast transulater or scanlater. amd they keep up the excellent work.

10/10.

This manga has a lot going. A lot of secrets and a lot of characters with hidden agendas. This really makes for a great suspenseful story.

The art simply looks amazing and the characters are drawn very beautifully. Theres a bit of ecchi, but not to the point that it draws away from the excellent story. I really hope a group picks this one up since updates are far and in between.

This manga should have at least an Ecchi tag as well considering the boobies and booty present... that scrumptious booty.

Anyway, it's taking a while to "get started", though the pacing seems goo enough (despite my own impatience). The art is very clean and high quality, and the action is fluid (insofar as one can consider drawings to contain action)
