"A grudge is a sentiment that is chained down and cannot move. That fixed sentiment becomes sadness, and when that sadness remains chained with no escape...it becomes hostile..." Baek-On and Ho-Yeon are exorcists-for-hire, traveling throughout the country in search of grudges and ghosts. Each encounter reveals a story of tragedy and loss, sentiments they are all too familiar with themselves. But sometimes the violence of the most murderous spirits is nothing compared to the cruelty of the living. Brush sleeves with death in this beautifully-illustrated collection of ghost stories.

This manga was definitely NOT worth the $6 I paid for it. The stories were extremely predictable, you don't even have to be familiar w/ Japanese folklore. If you've watched Anime/Japanese films (horror/thriller/suspense) & have read other manga then you have definitely come across these same ol' stories before. The illustrations were for the most part sparse, bland & boring for a period piece I would expect a lot more lush background illustration & detail, but that just wasn't the case. Maybe this manga gets better as it goes on, but I won't be shelling out any more money on this series in order to find out. I spent $1.66 less on Arisa vol 1 & it was beautifully illustrated with a suspenseful/superstitious story that sucked me in from page #1, I recommend that manga instead.
