I got the opportunity to read Alichino for the pleasure of my eyes. Graphism are rich and beautyful. With lot of details.
But let's talk about the story about itself.
It has been very difficult for me to understand the story. In the third volume, the story starts to be a bit more clear, but remain very mysterious.
I think Alichino have a real potentiel but it is not finished and will probably never be, since the manga have been published 20 years ago.

I dropped this manga because the I felt like the story was talking about this big thing that's supposed to be kept secret from the reader. I know that keeping secrets from the reader can make for good plot twists, but if it's not a drawn-out action series, and it goes on for more than 5 chapters, it makes for an interest-losing device.

The eyes on the people bothered me. Everything was so detailed, but then the eyes just put everything out of whack. HUGE eyes do not make for a "beautiful" person. And a lot of the panels were just black, or a close up of a character's face...

The characters didn't have any distinguishing traits, and along with the similar way the characters were drawn, it was hard to differentiate between two similiar characters. I could only really recognize Tsugiri, the main charactrer.

If you're willing to duke out a confusing plot and stick with 17 chapters of not knowing what's going on, then you might want to read this manga. But I think it's bad for what the creator gave themself to work with.
