Overview

What lurks behind the world of the living? What is it that hides just out of sight of human perception? There is more to our world than our eyes reveal. Mahito, a young high school girl, is about to find out. She has just died.

Mahito lives at home with her father (an ex-pro wrestler) and her cousin Erika, who came to live with Mahito's family several years ago after the death of her parents. Erika is a shy and weak six year old, who has had difficulty adjusting to her new family - she needs constant looking after, and unfortunately, it is Mahito who ends up devoting most of her time to this task.

So it was on a rainy night, when Mahito had gone out for groceries that she was struck by a car. Two days later she awakens at home, covered in dirt and blood, yet there is not a scratch to be found anywhere on her. Shortly thereafter she discovers that she had died that night of the accident, but a mysterious woman named Alice had arrived on the scene and brought her back to life. This strange woman shared a part of her "Sacred Heart" with Mahito, giving her life as a Median, or Undead.

It is a strange world Mahito is introduced to. As a Median, she possesses unique powers and sees the world around her for what it really is - a place quite different than what we humans perceive. It is a darker more foreboding plane where danger can lurk behind any given corner.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The mundane life of schoolgirl Mahito Takeda abruptly changes when she is hit by a speeding car. As her life ebbs away, Mahito sees a mysterious woman in a swirling dark coat, urging her to welcome death. Mahito wakes in her own room and initially thinks it was all a dream. But then she sees the same woman in her mirror, telling her she did indeed die and return to life. This visitor, Alice, tells Mahito she has become "a creature of the night" like herself, called a Median. Although Mahito continues to lead her normal life at home and school, when she encounters her killers, she loses control and transforms into a monstrous creature that wreaks vengeance upon them. To complicate matters, Mahito begins to meet outwardly normal people who also prove to be Medians, but not benevolent ones like Alice, who gave Mahito half of an enchanted heart, which grants immortality and the power to destroy other Medians. Hence, opposing factions among the Medians are after Mahito. Hayashiya tells the story of an innocent girl's descent from her everyday existence into a dark world that grows increasingly dangerous and achieves a number of striking visual effects, such as the sudden emergence of the car that will kill Mahito out of blackness, or her macabre transformation into a shadowy, wild creature. Hayashiya creates mood so well that even shots of seemingly ordinary individuals turn ominous in context. Unfortunately, the storytelling is somewhat unclear, undermining the intriguing premise.
