The central mystery is engaging, though it really isn't the main focus after a while.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The queer representation is honestly pretty good, with Akira choosing to live his life as a man to the very end. Even Amano is shown to be experimenting with his gender presentation right at the end, and I like how the two of them share a kiss at that moment. However, that's not to say it's all great. My biggest gripe is the "psycho transwoman" trope, but it's not enough to keep me from recommending it.

Decided to write a review mainly to highlight the art. Not enought people appreciating it in the comments, i see. The way this artist draws faces just makes *everyone* look so cute. I absolutely love it!
Story-wise, it was also pretty good. I'm not usually a fan of mysteries, but i finished this one. That speaks for something, right?
Side note Tetsuo continuously slayed. Wish he wasn't naked this often, but oh well

I read this one for the psychological/mystery elements.......yeah, very well done, it unfolded at a steady pace and (for the most part) stayed consistent and kept most of its secrets well towards the end.

Though yeah, like some others have mentioned, the author really did seem to add what seemed to be some unnecessary parts, and really did almost go off the tracks at the climax with some (really) unexpected elements thrown in.

But still, overall I enjoyed it quite a bit, it's a very solid story.

Gripping & thoughtful

Well-written mystery/thriller and treats its LGBT characters with delicateness. A honest thoughtful look on what it means to be transgender. Narratively the pacing was on point. It was neither rushed nor slow. The arcs naturally tied into each other. The art is also pleasant to look at.

Plot that ends up being goofy and LGBT elemets that do not fit.

I was genuinely interested in the beginning, but as the series progressed and elements were introduced, it started drifting into schlock, especially the last chapters which were something out of Cyborg 009. It doesn't feel serious enough (in fact it's mostly kind of goofy), all of the darker elements are treated rather lightly and there is just an overall feeling of disconnectedness between the plot points, the story just doesn't flow. It tries to fit in as much as possible but the result is that everything just ends up being cheap, rushed and unsatisfying. Tetsuo's gender identity is more of a distraction than anything relevant to the actual plot, it's just not developed enough and feels more like a statement than an exploration.

Highly recommended! Especially for those looking for decent LGBTPQ representation in manga!

This whole review will be chock full of spoilers, otherwise I wouldn't be able to convey how unique and progressive this is for a manga- like wow.

Ignoring the whole "queer" topics I'm about to get into, as a horror/mystery manga, I'd just have to say it's good/decent (hence the 9 instead of 10).
You start to think that perhaps this will be a sort of detective story with a bunch of other smaller mysteries thrown in, but in reality they've only truly gone off topic once so far, which served as a huge turning point into Tetsuo and Amano's ideology, as well as being the defining characteristic of what makes this manga so great.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
First of all, Tetsuo is a transgender man.
They introduce Tetsuo to you as a man, and once you find out as trans, they don't just write him off as a female, which I really appreciate.
They flesh out Tetsuo and his gender identity, and let the reader go on a journey of acceptance with Amano to come to terms with the fact that- yes, while Tetsuo has that banging female body that you'd without a doubt want to touch, he is a man, and you need to respect that above all else.

That's one of the main reasons I'm okay with the ecchi and exposing of Tetsuo's more feminine parts, we're supposed to keep in mind that Tetsuo is /super/ hot whether you view him as a male or female, but that our own lust (mainly Amanos) shouldn't cloud our judgement or disrespect the man that he is.

It also hit on a very important issue that I, as a trans man myself, struggled with, and have never seen a manga take on.
While Amano and Tetsuo are on the run, they come across this village, and while I'm writing this off as a spoiler, I don't want to get /too/ spoiler-y... So I'll just say that it gives Amano a larger respect for females and what they have to go through, as well as allows Tetsuo to realize that males can also like/feel things that are generally meant for "females" after Amano expresses his interest in it as well.
This is actually a rather huge block that a lot of trans guys face, being afraid of things that are too "girly" since it would denounce their status as a man in their mind, and Amano helps him get over that bump.

Amano himself struggles a bit with being a straight man who is not only attracted to a trans man, but restrains himself to only thinking of him as a friend out of respect for Tetsuo's sexuality, but also his newfound like(?) for crossdressing.
Basically, Amano is super open minded and kind, the kind of person everybody wishes they had in their life.

Amano believes in Tetsuo so completely, that even when Tetsuo gives up on himself
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
and pretends to just be a female,
Amano still believes in the man that Tetsuo has proved himself to be again and again throughout the manga.

Edit::: P.S. I'm betting Amano and Tetsuo get together by the end- whether it be the two of them living as best friends or like... them dating despite them both being straight.
Am I the only one who thinks that?

i honestly really liked at first i mean i loved the mystery and horror is great i mean they were sometimes where the killer is hiding in certain chapter that you wont notice untill he does something and then you go back and see him its very awesome and i liked that but then the author gets really obvious i mean now he doesnt even focus on the mystery he focus on some stupid gender shit and gay shit and that he hope a country with no gender or something and he even introduce a pedophile policeman its really fucking disgusting but anyway , its very obvious that hes talking to the readers and doesnt focus on the story soo dropped dont bother with this shit
