    1. Check out more manga and graphic novel reviews @ Perspective of a WriterHiiragi's mother just passed away and revealed he has a half brother! Excited by the prospect of family he investigates only to learn his brother, Karasu, is a short, mysterious guy who disdains family and runs a secret shop renting out yokai from inside his exotic pet shop. For civil servant Hiiragi this is dastardly crime! The art is very good It has that typical modern style that most manga has today. The characters are d [...]

    2. This book is rated Teen and has some yokai on human violence as well as some grave robbing so use your best judgment before handing this to a younger reader.I for one am a bit of a yokai enthusiast loving the stories as well as classical artwork that survived even during a time when the Japanese government was trying abolish the yokai tales so seeing this book for half off I threw it in the basket and got to reading it in time for Halloween when the spirits are closest to the world of the living [...]

    3. Not really sure how I feel about this series. On the one hand, it's clearly meant to be horror. But, on the other hand, they keep tossing in these moments that I think are meant to be funny, but just sort of fall flat. For example, every time Karasu makes his appearance, he sort of tumbles in, hanging on his bandages like a weird Circ du Soleil performer, and since it's not scary, and it's not particularly engaging otherwise, I think it's meant to be funny. Spoiler, it's not funny--just sort of [...]

    4. It's not bad but it leaves you with nothing but questions. I Hope the second book answers a lot of my questions. I love Karasu (The character rapped in bandages) and how he has his whole yokai shop rapped up. The character design is great the plot twists make it kind of sketchy. I hope the second book at least answer's 1:) who and what their father is, 2:) how his brother is what he is, 3:) what is Karasu and a bunch more.

    5. Not quite as good as I'd been hoping but a little more interesting than I was expecting with both an unusual yet also rather familiar premise with intriguing characters and twists. Might give the second volume a try.
