I am so unlucky these days. I keep bumping into manga/webtoons that got rushed or axed. Sigh.
So, yeah, heed my warning: don’t get too engrossed, this series got chopped. And just when it started to get interesting, too!
Okay. Here we go: The manga tells a story about a 20-year-old college student who can perform astral projection. He first uses it to spy– okay, my bad– to let go of his longing toward his ex-girlfriend whom he hasn’t met for a few years. As things progress, he ends up finding things he is not ready to see and meets a mysterious girl who possesses the same — but stronger — power as him.
In my honest opinion, I think this guy starts off as a sore loser. (Here is the start of the SPOILERS.) He was being such a jerk toward his ex. And that, more or less, might have contributed to make whatever she is now. But, he does feel guilty, and knows that he was being a complete asshole. Isn’t that a recipe for a good character development?
But forget character development. There is no room for that. The manga got axed in chapter 20, just when you’ll think it might turn into something great.
What is this power? How did he get it? Who is that mysterious girl? What’s her story? These are a few questions that will, sadly, never get answers.
In the pen-ultimate chapter, the mangaka made this short comic about a pathetic, talentless mangaka. Not sure what happened, but I feel like he was feeling underappreciated at that time. I am not familiar with him. The manga itself was created in 2007 and he made more titles after that, so I guess, things look up?
Even if this manga did not get axed, I don’t think I would be fan. Depending on the development of the story, tho. However, I do agree with most people out there, this could be something good for people who love titles with darkish, supernatural ecchi hint.
Will I read again? Sigh. What for?
