Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up Orphan Taisuke Kano spends his days protecting his friend Yuichi Hirose from school bullies and isolating himself from social convention. When strange dark weather descends upon his town, Kano finds himself experiencing a powerful, cosmic moment. That same day thousands of people commit suicide, one right in front of Kano, who swears that the jumper looked peaceful, even cheerful as she fell. Hirose is found surrounded by corpses and charged with murder, but it seems that the detective investigating the circumstances may be connected with the mass suicides in a mysterious, unearthly way. And it becomes increasingly clear that not only had those who died been affected by something like a virus, but that Kano was also supposed to be among them. The volume ends on a potent cliff-hanger, with few questions resolved. The subject matter is not dealt with gruesomely, which helps make the story all the more eerie and affecting. Highly charged and certainly disturbing, this book has the potential to be the sort of cerebral psychodrama that made Yoshiyuki Sadamoto's "Neon Genesis Evangelion" books and Tsugumi Ohba's "Death Note" series (both Viz Media) such huge hits, but it remains to be seen whether future titles will continue to focus on contemporary issues or push into a more fantastical realm.-Benjamin Russell, Belmont High School, NH
