About this deal

At first several chapters it seems to be just a light atmosphere and cheerful one but by the next it's goes complete psychological and mystery. The story follows Urashima Eiji, a college student, goes to sleep after a fun drinking night with his friends.

The rating of 8 given to the manga may be slightly high, but the third volume's plot twist and the fourth volume's storyline deserve praise for the chilling reactions they elicit.Thankfully, the MC isnt your typical horny guy but someone who actually is likeable and enjoyable to read about. Eiji Urashima must uncover what has happened in the days he has no memory about as the sins of his father starts haunting him again. But, for sure this story is worth reading, well played, well written with a semi realistic style which comes to complete it quite greatly. People say that perfect mangas don't exist that's why they don't give anything a 10, but I follow the idea that if a manga does anything beyond what I expected from this medium of art then it has pushed the boundaries of what manga as an entertainment medium can achieve with the story, and this manga does this with being one of the most cleverly written plots and characters with genuinely horrifying art in the best moments. The professionalism of the story maybe gets its own point on the "personal enjoyment of the reader"; what I mean is, for sure, characters are interesting with their many personal stories which create emotions to the reader.

The story seems original, having an mc realizing he has a different personality the time when he skipped several days and waking up in the morning, knowing he has done some sort of things he doesn't remember that days passed including having a girlfriend who's popular in campus. When he wakes up he discovers a beautiful girl next to him who treats him as if they are in a loving relationship. I appreciate the elaborate detail, but when it comes to thrillers I prefer that they don’t indulge in certain story arcs for longer than they need to. Overall, it's really hard to give this story review without spoiling anything, but it's definitely top tier.In any case, the guy is happy enough to let this sudden girlfriend of his believe that she’s dating the other version of himself. His alter ego, B1, adds a layer of danger and unpredictability, intensifying the gripping storyline. The artwork has the power to transform a character, giving them a morbid complexion and stripping away their charm. Malice Aforethought on the other with the execution and pure amount of plot twists it had me on my knees begging for more. However, the protagonist’s missing part isn’t satisfied with a hot girlfriend: he’s also hanging out with members of the worst gang around, one that runs whores and kills people.

This dude just show up while I'm finding a new comic to read and after reading it, i can only say what the fuck did i just read. much on the insanity of their characters and lose sight of what makes this whole genre so damn interesting in the first place, the tactics with which these characters interact with each other. To me it felt massively like a cop out with little to no setup as to how he actually "gave" himself DID. Having no recollection of the event, Eiji goes along with the flow until he's faced with more nonsensical events that took place in the last few days.While mostly fine, there are a few instances where elements of the mystery are blatantly shoehorned in to explain the desired ending. This could be the most underrated aspect of this manga but the art is genuinely drawn so horrifyingly well that the plot twists have literally given me more chills than most horror mangas failed to do. I was thinking it would have be analyzing more in the detail about his relationship with Eiji, but at the beginning of this chapter the focus of the narration switch to Kyouka but it’s only a small parenthesis before we get to know why Eiji’s father was chose as a scapegoat.

A woman gets murdered in what seems like a copycat case of the serial killer’s modus operandi, and the protagonist finds himself in possession of that woman’s cut-off ear. One person realizes that the protagonist is struggling with some ghastly mental issue: an aloof young woman who attends the same college.

a 10/10, The art was phenomenal, and the artist has a very unique and grotesque style, which I personally endeared. It's really amazing how it affects the story and thanks for Shota Ito by drawing in this way or maybe that's just how he draw.
