Awakened Dreams

The extra story, Awakened Dreams was very fascinating. It was better than the main story. I like how the author gave parts to her numerous personalities. At first, I was a bit confused with the seemingly jumbled parts but then when Iwakura F was introduced, the story makes more sense. A very interesting story about MPD.

...when I felt like it was only beginning. As if someone told the author to hurry and finish it when he was only getting into it. Quite a shame because it had potential to be good if it was at least twice as long.

The extra story is much better.

A little knowledge about computers, in particular the way basic websites are made, is highly recommended. If you know what "head", "body" and "html" means, it should be enough.
This knowledge is not necessary though, it just makes the whole story even clearer. Interesting detail though smile

All in all... I wish the mangaka would have showed some "good" points of our characters at least, but that wasn't really the case especially later on. It's also a bit unrealistic - but only in one point extrem.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Every normal human being should notice if a dog is flying at you. And especially if this dog tries to kill you. Even if it's from the back. Especially if you are on a killing spree, with high concentration for any possible danger. Also the way this was portrayed, it was just plain unrealistic. Come on, why couldn't the girl partner up with somebody better?

Art was a lot better than expected, story was also okay (though a bit disturbing) and characters... it's very difficult to describe the characters. You want to know whether those guys died. That's all for the side characters, and honestly, you don't care much more about the main charas either. I enjoyed the read, but I wouldn't reread it. Even if I forgot the story and I'm pretty sure I'll have forgotten it soon.

Not bad. Quite grim, very violent, and I have to say the end was pretty...anticlimactic, but cool. The violence was pretty expected from seinen; just because it can.
The second story is more interesting as far as plot goes, and the art changes was pretty fun to watch.

The art quality itself was pretty nice.

this was mediocre at best...not a good seinen manga...also some things lacked common sense in this story and therefore it wasn't believable..+the story is nothing's ok but storyline has flaws and not really exciting...the premise is simplistic too and it's not shocking as the mangaka thinks it is...revelations were not even remotely as shocking as they were portrayed...expected and simplistic...definately not a mindfuck,weird or a good story

the side story on the other hand! (awakened dreams) was weird and intriguing!! it makes you want to read it twice (and you should!) it's very original,weird and a very nice way to tell a gives you the wrong impression at first and you think you know what's going on but you actually dont! so when you reach the end you're "wtf?" and re-read it to appreciate it knwing now what's going on

i really like stories like,with crimes,intriguing,weird and original and awakened dreams is one of these stories! smile

Didnt think it would be much, thought it would be one of those really raw MC Law kinda manga - some meaningful look into criminals and a bit more cruel and dramatic gimmical plot development is dramatic BUT very intriguing and though the wrongdoings might leave u a bit reticent, I hve to say

justice is served much like the Agatha Christie novel - And then there were none

Am I glad my gender is pretty vicious in revenge!!
