A nice put what-you-read-is-what-you-get murder mystery. Maybe that is what makes it a pleasant read. Warning: Doubt is quite mature, mild horror and gore are present, as expected. Just so you are not caught by surprise.

Reasons to read it:

  • defined ending;
  • mystery murder;
  • coercive game plot;
  • spiral development;
  • purehearted protagonist.

Recommend if you are looking for a mystery murder that is a fast & easy read.

  1. I dunno why it sounds so familiar… I’ve heard about this before, but i don’t think it was the manga that i heard of… Do you know if there is or is about to be a dorama after this? Lately i’ve only been interested in doramas, so there must be some sort of connection. Hmm… i’ll have to check it out. :D

  2. I searched and searched and searched and couldn’t find anything related to this… I’m going crazy! It’s annoying when i can’t remember something. :D It might be related to Battle Royale, but i’m pretty sure there was something more i read…
