The plot is interesting, but that's its only redeeming quality

It lacks in realism in my opinion. There's not a chapter that I read and didn't think that one, the character was lacking in dimension anyway and two, the cycle is repetitive and -like a cycle- predictable. For example,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the devoted killer is still hung up on a woman on the basis of the fact that she didn't persecute her for being gay. The straight woman deserves none of the loving feedback I'm sure she'll receive because the author tries to excuse her manipulative and abusive personality as an effect of her own suffering when in reality being abused doesn't give people the right to be terrible little spawns of satan. The lesbian has no sort of reason to exist other than she's gay and basically a rapist obsessed with her victim. She's an idiot and too easily swayed. The straight woman is sociopathic and irritating to read. I'd much rather read about the lesbian and her former girlfriend continuing their relationship than waste time on this flimsy work pretending to be deep or gritty.
It is in no way realistic.

This is a rough read. It's brutal, raw, and dark - steady spiral of self-destruction. And it is exceptionally compelling. As I'm writing this there are 21 chapters currently translated, though I've only read 16, I had to take a break. I might not pick this up again until after its completed, but only because I don't want to open myself up to this world of hurt prematurely. This manga deals with heavy topics and intense emotions and doesn't pull any punches but not once does it feel forced or over-the-top. The characters and are real, raw, and enrapturing, and it has my highest recommendations. Just. Be prepared.

A strong psychological drama  
by MangaGhost

Rating: 8.0 / 10.0
The art by no means is bad, maybe some people only like cute characters. It can be a bit rough at times (some characters got giant ears too), but its still pretty decent and hey at least everyone looks distinctive and not like some manga where its the same face with just different hair. It also has a more naturalistic look to it unlike some generic manga style, which adds to the drama and seinen qualities. The story is some heavy stuff with what's going on with the characters. You can't really assign blame to any single character as they've all made mistakes and some have done some pretty bad things to each other. There's also emotional and psychological consequences for the things that people do. All of this makes for a fairly complex story and how it ends up should be interesting. I also thought some of the dialogue was good. There are some weaknesses in the story. It has a few moments where its choppy and it feels like it skipped a few scenes. Also to kill someone for another I think you need to be more than in love. It should be almost obsessive which I'm not sure was conveyed (she had after all pretty much moved on with her life so I disagree with the obsessive love category) or she should have been shown to have great rage for what was going on otherwise it feels maybe too casual. I'm giving this an 8 right now at chapter 11 and depending how it finishes up I might bump it up or down a point.

usually i dont care about the art but for this one its really bad. All the females are ugly and they look like males and the turns u off and the story doesnt make sense because the rich girl could have the other girl but she wants the ugly one instead.(btw they are all ugly)

WOW! Usually I don't read yuri, but I could never imagine that the most deep, emotional and captivating story I've read last months will be yuri! It's really incredible, the art is absolutely realistic, I feel like I watch the movie. totally recommended!

The first time I read the synopsis for this manga I thought it would just be another yuri manga with a twist. After the second chapter, it was clear that I was wrong. The art is simply gorgeous, and the story is very engaging. Some elements might not make sense (like how the cops haven't caught up to them yet) but they can be overlooked given that there are only 4 chapters out right now. Despite all the manga I read, I cannot predict what will happen, which is surprisingly pleasant. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes seinen manga and I hope to see more of this in the future.

The ratings...

After having read chapter one of this series I defiantly think its too early to evaluate this series. It could become either very good or lose it all quickly.
I usually don't write reviews but I would just like to clarify that the 1's which have been assigned to this series are probably some child's rating as one has to be beyond immature to give this series a 1, utterly disappointing...
I would say that it is probably around 6-8 rating currently, but will wait to see where it goes before voting.
