Funeral bells are ringing the day Mikaya moves into a new apartment. Once he arrives, he learns a startling fact; his flat was previously occupied by the dead man, K. Strangely enough, no one ever found K's body...yet all the people who lived in the same apartment complex as him are absolutely convinced of his death. Where is the body, and could it be one of his eccentric neighbours who was responsible for K's death and subsequent disappearance?

It's never solved...

It's dark. It's eerie. It's one of a kind.
The use of black and white is powerful - there is no grays in this manga ever, and the mystery is just so...compelling.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
To me, the mystery was never solved. Sure, they all took part in carrying of K's body...but who was it that REALLY killed him? The new guy that just moved in didn't say he killed K. Rather, all he said was that he was in the K's apartment with K's corpse when the blond girl came in. He never said he killed. Moreover, the ring...there's still a missing piece. And that blond girl's mom...I have a hunch that she was involved somehow (otherwise, why would she be at the very end of the last scene? She didn't seem to play a big part in the story at all). She's mighty suspicious.

This manga is one I have to buy a copy of (even if it has to be a Japanese version, even though I don't understand Japanese) and carry around in my bag at all times. I enjoyed it very much, both art- and plot-wise.

I loved how so many oddballs lived in the apartment complex, and how they all accepted each other nonetheless.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
When the case about K was solved, it also showed how they all thought about and cared for each other, when they moved K around. Everyone did it because of thoughtfulness or love for someone.

It seems that many dislike how the whole apartment complex was involved in the disappearance of K. I actually liked that part. Normally, you always try to find THE culprit in a mystery, and throughout the story you wonder: "Is it him, her or..?" My guess is that no one had foreseen the outcome of this mystery. That everyone had been involved. Am I right? Therefore, them all being involved is actually a very original way of thinking. Well, I enjoyed it.

I really loved the first and second extra story. They were very beautiful, and explained some of the holes in the story in a nice roundup way.

And oh, I must praise the art again. I like it. LIKE IT.

though there are some points where the story doesn't seem realistic at all,for example:
Spoiler (highlight to view)
how could all the tenants of the apartment building all be involved?

however,the plot is well thought'll make you keep wanting for more each page.the way it the story is put gives you a very eerie and uncomfortable feeling, which in my opinion,makes it very one of a of the art,it's much better than 'passable'.definately beautiful gothic characters and their slim bodies are nice to look at.i like the toning of it as well.
K no souretsu is probably one of those gothic mystery stories i truly enjoyed [despite the weird aura it emits O.o]
i only have one question left...
Spoiler (highlight to view)
what are morkwalls?

i think i've said enough..

It's hard to describe the story, but I would say that it gave off a dark, original, and mysterious vibe. The way the mangaka used only black and white was a very nice touch. What I especially enjoyed was the chapter when the tenants did their testimonials. It was very different and very interesting. However, I didn't give this story a perfect since the ending left me vaguely confused on who the killer really is. But I would give props on how the ending is done and the overall resolution of the story. I highly recommend people to read this.

Also this manga reminded me of the manga Goth for some reason...

The story and setting is certainly very intriguing and the art is very unique, but I don't really get the ending confused I didn't exactly like how the killer of K was revealed in the end. It'd have to be quite a stretch for
Spoiler (highlight to view)
all of the tenants to have been involved, albeit innocently, in moving around K's body one after another...I also don't get how the guy who had just moved in was the one who killed K, didn't he only move in after the funeral for K was held? Or maybe I've missed something when I read the manga
. I didn't feel that the story was creepy in the slightest but I liked the author used the contrast between black and white in his illustrations.

And one more thing, can anyone explain to me what "morkwalls" are? I don't think it was ever revealed in the manga.

very good...a true classic...very well thought out plot and's bizarre, unconventional, dark,mature themed, unexpected ending, original (no cliches whatsoever), poetic (!!!), with very interesting art (at least for me). it feels like a crime graphic novel...i love the point where they're revealing step by step how K gave me some nice i loved the way he used black and white backgrounds in some points...when something optimistic was being expressed the words were set against a white background...when darker thoughts arised, the background was black...keep an eye for it at some point in the story

If you're looking for a psychological thriller, look no further.
The whole manga is like a puzzle, and keeps you guessing at who the killer is.
The ending is the best part, and reveals things you'd never imagine.
