Yoru wo Utau Kodomotachi Manga Review

I had never previously heard of Yoru wo Utau Kodomotachi. That is until I had started to browse around for some short manga's. When I came upon this manga, the art really stuck out. Plus I liked how it had to do with a mysterious school and a door to the underworld. Not only that, but the characters are quickly to love. Everything about this manga was really good. I have found that shorter manga's are sometimes better.

Yoru wo Utau Kodomotachi Plot

Plot of Yoru wo Utau

In Yuro wo Utau, a rumor has been going around Kuniyuki's school that there is a door that leads to a secret dimension. Teens have been disappearing and the police can not figure out where they are going. Kuniyuki's friend just happened to be one of the kids who disappears. He goes in search of his friend but ends up in the door himself. It leads to a mansion where a girl named Towa lives. She protects the school the best she can, but lately the work is to much. She takes Kuniyuki and another of his classmates, Kashiwagi, as her helpers. Eventually Kuniyuki finds out why Towa is so bent on protecting the people of that school. It is her fault that demons have been released. She has a good reason, but Kuniyuki does not trust her.

Towa, Kashiwagi, and Kuniyuki

Kuniyuki is the main character of the story. He really wants nothing to do with Towa, but wants to help his friends and classmates that disappeared. He is quiet to other people, but they mostly leave him alone. Towa is a girl that once went to the same school a long time ago. She was seduced to the other side and became the protector of the school. She remains the same age and only wants to be done with her responsibilities. Kashiwagi is a really quiet student. At first he was watching out for Kuniyuki and got involved. The only reason he got involved was because he has demon eyes. They allow him to enter freely into the mansion at any point.

Kashiwagi may have not had a lot of air time in my article, but he was my favorite character. You should really give Yoru wo Utau Kodomotachi a read. It is only one volume long and has a really good completed and thorough story. Nothing is left out so you do not have to worry about any cliff hangers. Pick it up or read it online, you will not be disappointed.

Support Yoru wo Utau Kodomotachi.
Read Yoru wo Utau Kodomotachi.

Overall Grade 8/10
