Asato Minami has a "unique constitution." He senses the lingering thoughts of murder victims, and experiences the circumstances under which they died with his own body in a reaction similar to stigmata. This proves useful in solving difficult cases with the Metropolitan Police Department's Special Investigations Unit Six. Asato's partner is the reserved Superintendent Kuroiwa Hiroto, rising through the MPD ranks despite doubting his own abilities.
This manga had me baffled almost every chapter and I had to break my habit of skipping long speech bubbles to understand. It has an interesting concept and Asako has a fascinating ability. The romance part threw me off. It definitely had me second guessing whether or not they would actually end up together, although it becomes apparent later on. Too bad it's so short.
This must have been one of the most unique and interesting bl manga I've read in a while. It doesn't even feel like bl, this is pure seinen. (Yes, there wasn't even a hint of attraction between the leads in vol 1) But still it's a great psychological thriller that reminds me so much of memories of murder. This actually has the potential to be adapted into a LA series. Aside from the story, the art style was unique, especially the scenes where Asako was dying which was horrifying to look at yet I can't help to be mesmerized at how beautifully it was illustrated. Like there was some kind of elegance yet sadness in dying.
