Kagen No Tsuki is a supernatural mystery manga written and illustrated by Ai Yazawa. The story focuses on Mizuki Mochizuki, a highschooler who meets and falls madly in love with Adam. Adam is the front man of British rock band Evil Eye. Mizuki has a date with Adam and as she crosses the street to meet him, she is hit by a car and falls into a coma for a long time.
Hotaru was looking for her cat and follows it into an abandoned building and hears someone playing a piano. Hotaru brings her friends to meet the pianist but discovers that only she can see her. The pianist is Eve, the ghost of Mizuki who has no memories except for Adam. The story focuses on the mysteries of Eve and trying to figure out what really happened along with her group of friends.
The art by Ai Yazawa is really stylish and impressive and is up to her usual high standards. I loved the mysterious broody atmosphere and while the story is very sad, there is hope for Adam and Eve as they expect to reunite in heaven. The characters were interesting and I really liked the idea of kid detectives trying to solve a mystery. You can feel a lot of sympathy for the lost lovers in this manga. The story is a bit off beat but this only adds to its charm.
It’s a short manga that can be completed in a day or so with 3 volumes.
Overall, it was a decent mystery story.
It gets 4 out of 5 stars.
Fans of Ai Yazawa are sure to appreciate this series.
