Manga Review: Another Paperback

I've finished "Another Omnibus" by Yukito Ayatsuji.

In the spring of 1998, Koichi Sakakibara transfers into Class 3-3 at Yomiyama North Middle School.

But little does he know his new class has a horrible secret. When he takes his seat in class for the first day of school, Koichi is unsettled by his fearful classmates. Despite this atmosphere and warnings from fellow students, Koichi is drawn to the beautiful, distant Mei Misaki, another classmate. But the closer he tries to get to her, the more mysterious she and their class become. And when a fellow student dies a disturbing death - the first of a long chain of deaths - Koichi seeks to learn the truth behind the curse of Class 3-3. But can he get answers before the curse kills him?

My Review:

I highly recommend this manga for fans of horror.

The artwork was beautifully captured and well detailed especially the couple of colored drawings at the beginning of the manga.

This manga kept me intrigued and on my toes because of the red herrings and the suspenseful setting.  You don't want to put down the book but to forge ahead because of the interesting storyline and the secret of Class 3-3.


Thanks Hachette Book Group Canada/Yen Press for sending me this manga to review, greatly appreciated!
