Alichino are beautiful beings who seduce human souls. Among these souls, the one who contains the bond has the purest and most desirable soul of all.
Alichino is a relatively unknown manga by Kouyu Shurei, also a relatively unknown mangaka. It is a supernatural manga with Asian and gothic themes. The premise is interesting and the plot is decent with some mystery, suspense, and action.
While the plot is decent, what really kept me reading this manga though is the art. I know I say that about many manga that I have read, but this one is one of the most beautiful ones. Also, I usually only read and review nice manga.
Each panel is elegantly detailed and delicate. The characters are flawlessly drawn with a distinct taste. In fact, by the time I got to the latter chapters, I was not so much reading as just looking at the gorgeous and alluring men and women.
As a side note, I really like manga that have beautiful androgenous men and classy cute lolis.
Anyway, I wish I could post all the pages here, but I can only post so many…
… so I have decided to link downloads. By the way, click on the images to enlarge them.
It’s rather unfortunate that the author has put this manga on hiatus indefinitely. It is truly beautiful and I would have really loved to see more. Still, the first three volumes have so much great art and style that it felt like reading an artbook.
Anyway, I’ve linked downloads so give it a shot.
