Description
Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria, or The Empty Box and The Zeroth Maria, tells the sinister story of Kazuki Hoshino, who is almost madly attached to his everyday life, and his antagonist Aya Otonashi, who suddenly transfers into his class—for the 13,118th time. She majestically announces to “break” him, without paying heed to anyone else around them.
This is but the start of a dark roller coaster ride that turns the two against themselves, the people around them and the one who may be god. Read on as their relationship slowly changes and they go against their most basic values in their struggle against the world itself.

I was confused at first with the first book, but thank god that i kept reading because this novel always improved.
The only things that lacks is a bit of SoL between Maria and Kazuki to understand the character of Maria imo.

A mystery with some horror contents, add little bit of comedy and a dash of romance is what this novel is about. The first arc is the best story I ever. It's very intriguing and keeps you on the edge, turning the next pages. I want to learn Japanese for the sole reason of able to to read these.

this is written in an extraordinary style witch keept me hooked till the end of the translated chaptersI reached after 9.5 hours of uninterrupted reading ... (a long night...).

Brilliant setting. Moving (I had tears in my eyes). I loved it.
It's worth a read.

this is a story where the hero suddenly become under observation by a mysterious being.
the being is the distributor of a box which can grant a wish..though the wish usually got distorted.

anyway, rather than shounen i find this series is closer to seinen, i found that a few part of the manga is quite violent that i doubt i want to see this as anime..quite graphic >.<..
the plot is very interesting though.
