Review:

I’m a sucker for this kind of twisted dark love stories.  I liked how passive Masaki is through out the story. I don’t know how to explain this but the manga is very messed up. Its not as messed up as Blame! but its still messed up and I loved everything about it.  The serial killer wants to kill Masaki or intended to but for some reason she can never follow through. Masaki grows too attached to the serial killer that it seemed like she taught her how to feel. They have this bond between them that I don’t know how to explain. The manga was a bit intense and had some action, which was bloody. Its not Goreish just bloody. I also really liked the art of the manga. I was a good read. I mean for me the manga was amazing but as a normal manga reader I would say it was good.

Overall Rate: 7/10
