Excellent backstory for the anime, the only downside is the more you learn about Tatara Totsuka, the more tragic his death in the anime is. As if it wasn't tragic enough already. I did find it hard to tell the various characters apart when they aren't in their iconic outfits, however. There seems to only be a couple of hairstyles for the guys of HOMRA. Learning more about how the different characters joined HOMRA was intriguing. If you liked the anime, you'll love the backstory manga.
