From Yen Press:

World-class detective Kiyotaka Narumi's last words prior to his sudden disappearance continue to haunt his younger brother, Ayumu. The cheeky 10th-grader becomes equally embroiled in the mystery of the doomed “Blade Children” when he is mistakenly named the prime suspect in a murder at his school. Led by Ayumu's sister-in-law, Kiyotaka's wife and fellow detective, Madoka, the investigation into the murder gives Ayumu a chance to clear his name. But in doing so, he not only uncovers ties to the Blade Children but also more questions than answers about who and what they are.

may seem interesting at first but i assume the writer started to lose interest, or was hurrying for a conclusion. reading up to volume 14, you realise the manga is unnecessarily melodramatic, focussing its plot twists on the most mundane of situations. furthermore, what i thought started off as a type of detective/mystery genre, ends up as a pseudoscientific, religious hogwash. in all, quite disappointing. attempts to have a deep plot, but in the end it is farily banal.

This is manga is good but it has some annoyances that I would prefer they fix like the constant brother complex and the hints at romance but nothing developing(I would acctually prefer they leave it out than developing it the way they did.) Otherwise good mystery.

this has an element (a genre if you will) in it that is not listed; and for a good reason... although it is constantly pushed at, and always hinted throughout the manga; it never happens, this is frustrating to the point that it would've been more enjoyable had they left it out... i wouldn't say this beats Conan in the creativity of the cases but the overall plot is certainly something to look at

one of my favorites mysteries of all time
the problems are very though out and the way their solved is also amazing...i love how the characters influence each other and their personalities
i really like that girl that hangs out with the main guy...shes just awesome! =]
there's just soo much suspense and questions unanswered that it just keeps you waitin for more and more....

i really hope this series is updated though...i realy can't wait for the next chapter

I watched the anime before reading the manga, but I still think that the manga is waaaay better than the anime. It's a great series with a list of strong characters esp. Hiyono-chan~ Gotta love her..

The reasoning used in the series is pretty great the only thing is that the series gets REALLY wordy at times, and when I mean wordy I mean a overuse of random figurative babble.

The manga was awesome, though not long but some of the speeches need a little examine to solve the mysteries :] (took me like 1 week to finish the whole manga =.="") Recommend for people who love detective cases/mysteries like detective conan.

This is a great manga with good artwork and a thick plot.

The character developement is good and the plot twists make things more fun and interesting. (Especially at the end ^^)

There isn't much action, but there is enough of it later on in the manga.

Probably one of the best mystery mangas I've read.

As far as I know, there are 15 volumes in total, but I only have 6. SInce starting to read it though, I fell in love with the character art and storyline. It has a much deeper story than your average mystery manga, I just hope the rest of the volumes won't disappoint.

All in all, this is a wonderfully conceived story.
