The Night Beyond the Tricornered Window Vol. 1 by Tomoko Yamashita

(2 customer reviews)

Shy bookstore clerk Kosuke Mikado has the ability to see ghosts and spirits, an ability he wishes he didn’t have, since what he sees usually terrifies him. Rihito Hiyakawa, an exorcist whose supernatural powers are as strong as his social graces are weak, doesn’t seem to fear anything, mortal or otherwise. When this odd couple gets together to solve the bizarre cases that come their way, their work methods may not be entirely safe for work!

  1. jess

    This manga as a whole is a bit of an odd duck as far as bl goes, and if you’re craving romance, this definitely isn’t the title to pick up. But if you’re interested in a more plot-oriented story that you could maybe share with non-bl fans, this just might be of interest. The first volume does a really good job of establishing what this story is good at: light horror mixed with humor (especially poking fun at some tropes), character development, and a niggling sense that something isn’t quite right.

    This is one of my favorite manga coming out now — not just BL, but manga in general.

    As jess said, it’s a bit odd for a BL. I wouldn’t call it a romance, as whatever romantic subplot may (or may not) be going on is certainly very slow burn. If you are a fan of creepy supernatural manga, this should be a real treat. It reminds me a bit of xxxHolic, if xxxHolic was more messed up and leaned more into the horrors of humanity than fantasy.

    It’s hard to explain what I enjoy so much about this story without going into spoiler territory since it takes many twists and turns. Let’s just say that each new volume brings new developments and new revelations that will change how you view the characters and their world. While the story starts off kinda goofy, it soon becomes something quite complicated and creepy.

    Also, the story is populated with very human characters who make mistakes and hurt each other. I think this is what makes it so exceptional; however, give this a pass if you’re not in the mood for something dark.

    Content warnings for consent issues in a supernatural sense rather than a sexual one, as well as childhood abuse and SPOILERcultsSPOILER.
