Lost potential

A decent story (so far at least), an interesting setting, some decent and some good characters, nice art and good flow of the fights.
This Manga had all of that yet got cancelled, we get 20+ volumes of crappy generic shonnen crap instead from our precious Japanese publishers, such pity.
I'd love to see more of this manga, thou I know I wont, the mangaka turned to love-comes and was pretty successful with nisekoi so I don't see him coming back this way.

The concept had so much potential and it was cut like that. The story was going in a good way into a proper development, didn't feel stale at any time and when the characters started to improve themselves (in many ways)... AXE. It makes me sad to add another story with great potential to the "will never come to a proper end list".

Definitely the ones who brought down such potential should have their fingers cut and eyes gouged out. Worse crap is out there and they stay popular but, at the end I cant bring myself to blame the publishers, if their clients want crap, they have to provide crap and the best example is... that the author that made this manga is the author of Nisekoi.

It's absolutely criminal that Jump cut this one short. The editorial board should've been flogged through the streets for their gross stupidity.
But Jump has always been stupid in that regard, it comes from paying far too much attention to postcard polling. Jump has awesome new manga scouting skills, but atrocious management of the same.

While not exactly fulfilling the ending seemed to answer the big questions, and it was a really good story to read while it laster... this and another story I read about aa dude being forced to dress as a chick and go to a demon school make me think publishers/editors have horrible taste... I've seen absolute crap series drag out for 30 volumes, meanwhile gems like this are cancelled..... it was a great loss but no reason to downgrade the rating, 10/10.

So Much Potential

was shown within the first chapters, but the idiots at Shueisha (or the readers in Japan) were too stupid to recognize how great this could've become. Read it even with the axed ending, read it even though it's only 23 chapters long. Komi-sensei is an amazing mangaka that has so much talent yet unnoticed. It was a sad day when Double arts was cut from SJ.

this story had soooo much potential and it was a shame that they dropped it so early.
even though it was dropped, the author was able to connect the dots fairly well and i found the ending enjoyable but a bit lacking still
the plotline is very shounen but there is some subtle romantic twinges that made me smile
the characters were well developed and the artwork fit my tastes very well

anyway, i recommend it highly! please enjoy

This never really had a chance to go anywhere... It has the typical mystery group, and unexplainable phenomena. It's unfortunate the manga had to end so abruptly, but I'm glad the mangaka left it open-ended instead of trying to force a quick ending.
I'd recommend this, unless you can't take never knowing what happened.

a shame it got ended

knowing the reasons the last chapter (or the last 2) has to be ignored, the story ends where it got truncated
the chapters we actually have are only an introduction to the main story, at least even with it getting truncated, it got truncated a little after the end of the main introduction

the story was really entertaining, any chapter was no useless, and even if it lasted only 21 chapters (i ignore the last screwed ones) it feels like it was a lot more long
the comedy was also great :3 the way the 2-protagonists react to each others and with other characters was so funny :3

even if this will not restart (which sadly is likely) it will remain for me a great manga, a great story biggrin

note: the only odd thing i noticed, is that the main villan and supporter (zere and fallan) look like ripped of org13 of kingdom hearth(only the design, nothing like the personality)... this may be one of the reasons jap folks didn't appreciated this much? :/

Sadly unfulfilling

Coulda been a great manga. As it stands, the most I can give it is a 7. While I respect that the mangaka tried to give his series closure, perhaps it would have been best not to have even tried to give it an ending at all. Sure, the "ending" seemed open ended, which helps if the mangaka is ever given a chance to continue it, but it was also unfulfilling and mind-screw inducing. That "non existent disease" tag above takes a double meaning (no pun intended) in my head and makes me all the more paranoid about the ending.

Why such a story with so much potential was discontinued I will never know. I would have loved to see this story progress but I’m instead left with many unanswered questions. So be forewarned, this is not a very complete story, if you don’t like stories that don’t have a real ending I wouldn’t read this.

Plot- It’s a very unique plot, but I was hesitant at first. A boy and girl having to hold hands all the time eh… that could be interesting but at the same time it could become very awkward depending on how the plot device was handled. Fortunately that plot device was handled very nicely, and I actually enjoyed it! As the story progressed interesting questions were aroused about the disease and the different groups involved with its past. Unfortunately hardly any of the questions are answered…

Characters- The characters were great! Kiri was a very kind boy, fun loving and yet a bit immature, there was great room for his character development and growth throughout the series. Elraine was also quite a good character, of the cast she might not be the most interesting but she herself was very compassionate and had a lot of room for growth as well. As for the other characters they all had their own pros and cons, making for a very interesting and diverse cast. I personally really like Sui, she was great!

Art- It was quite nice, very clear and firm, very pleasant to look at. Though some of the hair styles (Kiri’s mostly) defied gravity… but ah well, it’s manga it’s allowed!

Other- The pacing of the story could be worked on, it seemed that it was going a little bit to slow, but it wasn’t too bad, and I noticed that there was an annoying recap in every single chapter that went over everything we already knew. Does Elraine always have to report to the Sisters? Other than that the story was quite good and was heading in a very interesting direction… and then it was canceled. I was slightly happy that we had a glimpse at the happy ending (or what seemed like one…) but I wanted to see us get there and all the questions were not answered at all which is annoying. I would recommend this, if only for the characters and general plot line, to others but only if they don’t mind open endings.

6/10 –Liked it
