For years the rash tomboyish Tsubasa had communicated with her twin through letters. She had formed the idea that the gentle Arisa led a joyful school life.

What does it have to do with the people disappearing from Arisa's school...

i really cannot stand these kind of shoujo mangas lol. not because it's bad, but because there is an extremely annoying person. in this case, it's a shitty mariko and a crappy classroom. this is an interesting manga but the only reason i'm not dropping it is because i want to see justice served. dumb middle school girl with the black hair! geez, i hate scumbags. especially creepy ones like mariko :-(

i like it. and i like it even more that i didn't expect myself to. the description was a total mess. if it's going to be like that, then more and more people would think it's some sort of girly mushy story of kids. good thing it was one of the top viewed shojo manga in onemanga that i've discovered it. it has a nice story to hook me this bad.i thought i didn't like it but this time i'm asking for more so that means i must've love it already.

...Just not very well done. It was pretty predictable, and typical shojo art isn't exactly fit for stories that try to be dark. Though the story is definitely really original, it does need to be a lil' less predictable though. The amazingly small cast really makes it more predictable.

This is an AMAZING story. I didn't have high hopes for it in the beginning. I figured it'd be some cutesy story about twins reuniting. Boy, was I WRONG. The end of the first chapter left me with CHILLS. This is the only manga I've ever read (and I read a LOT) that has ever hit me quite like this. I'm sitting on the edge of my chair after EVERY chapter (and it's not an obvious plot either-it really keeps you guessing and wanting more).
I can't WAIT for the next chapter!! And I'll definitely buy it when Del Rey releases it. Woo Del Rey!~

But still worth a read.

I'm not too sure about how the plot progresses after chapter 8, but so far the 'mystery' element has been quite predictable.

Even so, it's still enjoyable, since it differs from your typical shoujo.

Update: This manga started out really good, but kept getting mediocre along the way. With 12 volumes, I would think that the author could have had better development (especially romance), but instead she wasted pages with fillers and evil faces. As a result, the ending was rushed, characters were tossed aside, and I feel like she just created plot twists on the spot for convenience. Very disappointing since it had such high potential.. Feels incomplete imo.

I thought that it would be some ordinary shoujo manga, but boy, the art got me fooled. So, what I am trying to say here is that the art does not match the storyline. It looks very innocent and light. For me, it lowers the suspense that it's supposed to provide. But I recommend this.

Really. I picked this up expecting worthless nonsense that I wouldn't have to think much about after a friend mentioned it. Truth be told, it's half-decent. The author knows how to build up suspense as well as the standard amounts of shoujo drama, so despite still being cliched it's genuinely fun to read.

A good one for more male-oriented suspense/mystery readers looking to broaden their horizons a bit and experience some shoujo flavor for once.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
though i don't know where the romance in this manga is, i really like it because i'm intrigued with the plot. with the recent chapter, the king is finally made known. but what i'm curious about is how this character does things... like the sudden disappearance of one of the teachers. this is NOT A SUPERNATURAL manga wherein the characters have powers.

it's a definite must read :)
