    This entire series is amazing. The art is good, the plot is good

    This entire series is amazing. The art is good, the plot is good and you should enjoy it. I stumbled upon it through a magazine and never regretted a second of it.

    Recommended - Unique Manga

    This was a really interesting read. It's definitely a unique manga and the art style is superb- it's a blend of typical manga style and high quality pencil sketches. It's been a while since I picked up a manga that had such an interesting premise and such great art. However, though the story is interesting, it's not very compelling and a lot of the cases are a bit weak. They have great set up, but the conclusions are meh. Still, I would say this is worth a read and I plan on reading volume II when it comes out.

    Artistic story

    This was an awesome book, a student nickname "Picasso" has to use his sketching skills to save his fellow students by interpreting their hearts. Totally recommended.
