From Storm in Heaven:

Ten years ago, there was an explosion at Hisano's apartment building. She would have been there, but she'd been hit by a bike ridden by a boy in blood-stained clothes. He dropped a fake gem when it happened, and she's been hanging on to it as a good-luck charm ever since. Now Hisano's in high school. One of her teachers was murdered, and the police are investigating. A young man suddenly appears carrying the toy the gem belonged to. And perhaps... can he also see the hallucinations Hisano has always been plagued with? Everything is connected as the pattern slowly rises to the surface.

the art is good, the characters are interesting when examined alone, but as stated before the pacing is awkward. the mystery is good and hisano is your not-so-typical psychologically wounded protagonist, but the length of this manga take away from its overall potential. the relationship between hisano and yukinari is developed awkwardly, and even with all the explanations given by the ending, i still felt the characters were still lacking and the mystery and psychological aspect fell short.

still a good read

tl;dr sheep

The story was pretty captivating until the end, when the twist turned an inevitable tragedy into a happily-ever-after... I thought that was a bit cheap.

The sheep stuff was also pretty interesting, but honestly I wished the manga dived into the issue of both people seeing sheep more. The pacing was another issue.

While I admit that it was pretty good (acutally it was very very good) I did not find it to be perfect. There were a few flaws and plot holes I noticed that kind of turned me off, but other than that I enjoyed it immensely.

I loved the fact that the main character isn't whiny, isn't stupid, and does not care much about what other people think. I really loved the fact that she was slightly crazy... I mean a sheep...? Lol. And she knew this. I was surprised at how interesting she actually was and how she understood that love didn't have to be pure on the outside because it was pure on the inside. She connected with the male lead through an experiance that changed both their lives, and the fact that they both lived a very fragile and tragic life.

The male lead was perhaps the most interesting one I've come across. He wasn't any of archetypes, he was damaged but gentle, easily hurt, soft and hard, pure but not innocent. Even the fact that he was a prostitute didn't bother me. I felt so much for him that I overlooked that fact. In the end I was happy that he found someone that accepted him wholeheartedly, even if he may or may not have been a murderer. I think both of them are on a path of healing.


The only problem I had was that I knew exactly who the murder was in like chapter three or four. I had to wait to confirm it, though.

Nice read. Story was very good. The psychological touch was the best. Though it didn't dive deep into the psychology, but it was executed fine. The romantic atmosphere was pleasant, unlike other shoujo manga. This is probably the best shoujo manga I've read (I didn't like any other that I read so far).

Characters were okay. Not much developments, but the emotions and thoughts of the MC was depicted pretty well.

Art was good, for a shoujo demographic. If it were seinen, then the art lacked shade and power.

Overall, it was a fine manga. I'd definitely recommend it.

Everytime I read something like this, be it a manga or a book, I am always tempted to (and in most cases do) read the ending. I didn't with this, but after having completed the whole thing I can say this: skipping to the ending would not have helped me at all. This, I think, is a good thing. It means there is more to the story than can be shown in just a chapter at the end.
I wasn't expecting much of this manga. It's a story that has a surrealistic edge to it and I felt, after finishing it, that I didn't really understand, but at the same time, the questions had been answered. When I read other's comments I was slightly skeptical that a double suicide from ten years ago and the murder of a maths teacher could be so neatly linked and connected in just two volumes. I was proven wrong; the whole thing connected and it still had a twist at the end. A story I would recommend.

i...dont understand? i mean the mystery is good enough to stand in its own, why need it? of course solitary psychosis is acceptable but shared hallucination is just too weird. anyway, this story is quite long for a simple mystery but its because the stylistic choice where one page only have 3/4 panels. the art is nice, and the characters though not well developed it is good enough to carry their weight for the whole two volume.

Gripping psychological drama.

This is was an interesting and gripping tale that begun with the murder of a maths teacher at Hisano's school, which turned out to be very much connected to a chain of events that happened 10 years ago. The psychological side was really well done, too, with a lot of twists along the way that kept things unpredictable. My only problem echoes the one mentioned in a few other comments; the ending felt really empty. Hisano seems to finally move on, but what about Yukinari? The way they seemed to want to find a way out through death at one point also felt really sudden, and nothing's ever mentioned of it again. The only character I really liked was Kentarou.

I don't really feel like saying much, after this series.

It's touching, it's good and I'm happy to say it wasn't a waste of my time. I'm feeling strangely satisfied, but somehow a bit empty, too, it got me thinking.
The ending wasn't bad, still, it was quite short and not very clear cut. Not the best ending around, but I don't feel it had any glaring flaws.

It was the summary that intrigued me, sounded interesting enough. I underestimated it though, the story turned out to be a lot better than I expected! There were so many twists and turns and unexpected actions that... well, it really was a good story!

Plot- The plot is fairly simple. A girl runs into someone from her past, someone who may not be innocent of a crime she was involved in so the girl tries to unravel the mystery surrounding him. Simple see! But the mystery is quite intricate (and well done) and just when you think you know what happened you get a piece of information that shatters your thinking.

But... what's with the sheep? That wasn't explained...

Characters- The character's were all right, nothing to special, they had interesting relationships though and I just couldn't help but wonder as I read who was the culprit. That completely changed my view of the characters as I myself tried to uncover who committed the crime and why.

Art- Nothing special, a little blocky at times but it was not distracting so the art served its purpose.

Other- All in all I enjoyed the story, a little fast paced maybe, but the story was very well done and ended in such a wonderful way. Only one issue,

Hisano's hallucinations were never explained... or why the guy (sorry... can't remember his name and I don't feel like looking it up!) could see them... but I don't care!
I love the sheep :3

7/10 - Really liked it

I love the sheep. I want one too. Or... Maybe I don't. biggrin

This was a nice manga, with a fair amount of both love, drama, mystery and some uh uh darkness (even though this is the shoujo type of darkness). Quite the combo, I must say, but it's been put together really well. I enjoyed it from start till finish. Definitely worth a read.

And oh. Did I mention that I really like the sheep?
