Well this just got picked up by Weekly Shonen Jump to replace Bleach (or possibly Nisekoi). Let's give it a look!


Warning for disturbing imagery.



First chapter is available for free, along with the second chapter (third later this week) so make sure to read it fully.

In a little orphanage known as Grace Field House, there is a young girl named Emma. She's about 12 years old and is living her life to the fullest with all of her fellow "siblings" and the owner, who everyone refers to has Mom. Her best friends at the place are Norman and Ray.

They graded all on right answers and speed. Emma, Norman, and Ray are all the top stars in terms of grades.

They all have fun playing on the orphanage grounds and can go anywhere... except for two places.

Emma: Beyond is the outside world. I don't know why, but... the outside feels a bit creepy.

Later that night, Emma realizes that Connie's little bunny has been left behind. It was a special gift made for her by Mom, so she shouldn't be without it. Ray states he saw the lights on by the gate, so he thinks Connie might still be there waiting for pick up. Emma and Norman decide to take the bunny over there in case she's still around.

I like the look of this so far. It feels a little like a cross between Umineko: When They Cry and the Orphans of Chaos series by (the unfortunately rather vile) John C. Wright.

Wow a manga not taking place in Japan that's pretty rare. :P

Not so rare for fantasy ones.

Looks interesting. The designs of the demons and shonen jump female protagonist also remind me of Soul Eater, which is a good thing because I liked Soul Eater.

It obviously isn't a happy lighthearted manga, but I do hope it doesn't go the way of Attack On Titan with "tragedy and sorrow everywhere! No respite ever! A beloved character dies every five minutes!"

This series doesn't seem to be on Viz Media any more. Google search shows an article 13 hours old by Crunchyroll also posting a direct link and even that leads to the same place.

Could they have taken it down?

I just checked that link. Before I visited the website myself. It's still not working and it might be inaccessible for some regions. I live in the Netherlands.

Thanks. I really enjoyed these.

There's a bookstore here that carries all sorts of magazines from all over the world. Maybe I can pick up this mag there. I know Shonen Jump by name and posts here but hopefully they have it in print here.

This has this weird Hansel and Gretel vibe.

I may need to work this into my Ravenloft campaign at some point, but I think I might be overplaying the "Put kids into danger" thing first.
