Takeda is diagnosed with cancer and feels that he has nothing to live for. His wife had died of cancer and his only daughter has been missing for fourteen years.

One day, when he is about to attempt suicide, the phone rings.

Takeda is crushed but resolves then and there to spend the remaining days of his life hunting down his daughterís killer.

The time left for Takeda to live equals the time left to put the murderer behind bars. Life is a heart-wrenching story about a fatherís willpower and his search for the truth.

Persistence is the Answer

I feel like this would make a great film adaptation if it just had a few tweakings to the story. A compelling tale of a dying father with nothing to live for except for justice for his murdered daughter.
It was good, if not a little bit ridiculous towards the end. Still, refreshing to read sincere manga stories like this as they are rarer.

I was going to rate it higher, but the ending just really was a let down. After all that talk about spending the rest of his life to find the killer, he didn't die. I thought it was rather anticlimactic to build up so much suspense and tragedy just to have it end happily ever after. Other than that it was very unique and carried through very artfully.

this should be a Chan-wook Park movie.

Chan-wook Park made a revenge movie out of old boy, it was a great movie, but he changed the story, thank god, the manga was horrible, but THIS, why didn't he make a movie to this? It would be perfect.

An exciting detective drama

New information puts a father on the trail of what happened to his daughter, who went missing 14 years ago.

The manga was a really good drama and I would recommend it to anyone -- it is fast paced and a quick read.

This is more of a straightforward detective story. The emotional plot focuses on the fathers feeling of regret in neglecting his daughter. The use of the deadline feels a bit contrived even though the series is relatively short, but it was an exciting manga so I rate it highly.

Very dramatic series, read it and be amazed. Recommended if you like themes of redemption, guilt and suspense. Its just 2.5 volumes (the last volume is just 120 pages long), so it wont take a long time.

Many thanks to kotonoha and hox for the wonderful work! smile
