Description
Sotoba is an old-fashioned Japanese village nestled deep in the mountains. It has a small population of about 1300, and the villagers strictly follow age-old traditions and customs.

One sweltering summer, a mysterious and deadly disease begins to spread rapidly among the villagers, affecting young and old alike. In the midst of this spate of puzzling deaths, a family of beautiful and elegant individuals moves into the abandoned 'Kanemasa' mansion on the hill-side over-looking Sotoba...

Unexpectedly disappointing

I dont usually give negative reviews but I expected something better from the author of Ghost Hunt and 12 kingdoms. The art is a huge turn off, its confusing and u cant take the story seriously.. The first chapter was interesting but they had to kill the only interesting character, the main guy Yuki is so clichedly boring, cant they make a different guy from him? I liked Ono Fuyumi's 12 Kingdoms because the protagonist was a female and a hardworking at that, no nonsense type, naive maybe but shifting the focus to a selfish guy is very overused.

the first 2 chapters were alright introducing characters and such by the 2nd chapter you already have an idea what is happening and then the 3rd and 4th chapter it just gets really dragging to read

I find the story intriguing. and especially the eyes. they are damnright awesome. and freaky at times. the story can be a bit hard to follow.. I also had some trouble distinguishing different characters in the beginning. some are drawn in a really similar way. can not not respect a manga in which main characters die. all the time.

I hope I will get to care for the characters in a chapter or two. and that I will have the time to start caring. biggrin good horror manga that will hopefully develop into something more

Well, I have read chapters 0-1, and so far it seems REALLY GOOD.
It has that perfect feeling a Horror Mystery Supernatural manga should have. If it was just plain horror, I would be disappointed, but with the mixture of the three, its perfect. =D I love it.

This series has a lot of potential, I can't wait to see more of it!

After reading twenty chapters, I can say I like it a lot. It turned off differently from what I originally thought though. The first impression I got from the manga was a horror-ish doomsday scenario. Everyone was going die one by one. The characters would fight against the inevitable death from these monsters. Not the best storyline I'd like to read (because it's been done so many times before). However, moving into the series, the tone changes a little bit. This change comes from the fact that they introduce the "monsters" attacking as real characters with a conscious. The past behind these shikis are also revealed. So as a result, instead of the horror that I didn't really like, it's turned into a full-blown plot with conflicting feelings because both sides are shown to be humane in some way. I like the way it turned out even if I didn't like how it started.
