The story follows Tohno Shiki, a teenage boy who, after a near-fatal accident in his childhood, gained the mysterious power to perceive lines covering everything around him. When he cuts along these lines, whatever it was immediately falls apart with a clean cut; in other words, killing it. He would have quickly gone insane from living in a world that could fall apart so easily, had it not been for a wandering self-proclaimed magician who gave him a pair of glasses that blocked his unnatural perception when worn.

Soon afterwards, he was disinherited from his family and sent to live with some relatives. For eight years he lived a normal life, hiding his special eyes, until one day he receives a letter inviting him to come back home. Shiki suddenly becomes caught up in strange and life-threatening series of events, ones that are somehow linked to his childhood accident and a forgotten past...

This was all I could untter after having finished this manga. Trying to look for some mangas with comedy and romance go together but hooked up to this manga. Thank god it was one of my best try ever. This manga is simply too good to be true. I lovw how adorable Arcueid is and how strong-minded and manly Shiki showed us.

it is a nice work, although the story could have been extended to cover more elements.
Anyway, I like especially the ending. Bot because the ending makes us see what we want to see or there is some surprise. but it really makes the story be completed smoothly, not roughly or abruptly. However, of course, to fully appreciate the ending, one had better follow closely all the precedent chapters/ the whole story. smile I wish eagerly to read it again

I liked the idea, but... Manga didn't deliver it for me.
Cheesy at times, it can be interesting overall, but it lacked certain something. What precisely? Hard to express what.

Too many flashbacks   
Rating: N/A

Flashbacks when used well add necessary intrigue and suspense and tie the plot together. However beyond a certain measure, flashbacks can simply become painful to follow through. This manga is an unfortunate example of this. The core plot of the manga holds a lot of promise. However it is not backed by the best character development and the intermittent flashbacks make the story unnecessarily complex. There are also many questions which remain unanswered such as the mystery behind the maids or the protagonist's actual family. To sum it up it starts of well and leads to a fair conclusion but its potential is not fully realized.

The manga is much more better than the Anime.It has more action scene,and explain things more briefly.Even if you are not a fan of the Anime,you shouldn't miss this.

I stated off by reading a bit of the manga before I watched some episodes from the anime. I have to say the manga leaves you with a much more satisfied feel in terms of character relation and development. The manga's protagnist Shiki has a much more kinder and much more accpeting tone of character. While the Shiki in anime has a colder and selfish attitude. I can recomend this manga because despite it's horror and action genre, it brings different tones to the story like comedy for instance so I give it an overall 9 thus far. I can also only hope that scanlation goes smoother and faster ; ;.
