Chronos-Deep is about a boy that was saved but ended up with no memories of where a mysterious fire that cause the sudden death of his family. Nanasawa Io has then lived a life of an outcast. He is feared as animal around him (at the beginning of the story) begin popping up dead. This brings an investigation into Io by a group know as the Titans. The Titans goal is to hunt down and destroy Kagetsuki- people who have become possessed by malicious shadows. However, what the Titans soon discover about Io isn’t what they expected.
Assigned on him was Hatsuki and Koyomi both are also possessed by shadows however they managed to keep their humanity and control their shadows or so they thought. (Because later on the manga they will learned that they are chosen by some of the 13 guardians as their host). Hatsuki who was trailing Io believed that he is not possessed and did not turned into a Kagetsuki. Let’s just say because Io has no friends and family Hatsuki grow fond of Io soo much.
Cannot be determine whether Io is an enemy or an ally. Meg head of their team (consist of Io, Hatsuki and Koyomi later to be joined by Souo) was asked to conduct a test per order of the head of the division of Titans. So they were sent to a school were a Kagetsuki was prying and already 3 dead people is confirmed. Then they learned that Io shadow Chronos can kill a shadow without killing the host. One thing the Titan members cannot do.
Later they face Haru, a human, who has hatred towards Io. He also possess Uranus (which is the same with Chronos) and has a grudge towards humanity. Because of Haru’s appearance suddenly everything came to pieces and their fate was already connected seven years ago. That fateful day where everything starts. The day their memory was sealed to hide the truth. The day the malicious shadow starts swarming the human world.
What’s up everyone?! It’s been quite some times since I post about Manga. I’ve been reading actually manga’s past few days but I haven’t have finished it cause some really are not my genre and the story is rather boring until Chronos-Deep.
Chronos-Deep is a short supernatural manga (25 chapters only). And its been quite long since I read a short manga about supernatural adventure action similar to the likes of Fairy Tail. The story is really nice and the ending is good. But there is still a lingering feeling that it is not really the ending. Despite that it was completed 2013 I think a new volume is possible. Why? Their are 12 wardens of the gate connecting humans and shadows along with Chronos as their head their are 13 wardens overall. Only 7 of them has been showed. (Chronos, Thethys, Themis, Cean, Mnemosyne, Krei and Rhea.). Riku (younger sister of Souo who possessed Rhea) has a shadow but the name was not revealed or if it is one of the 12 wardens. I think the eight one that was revealed was the shadow of their former head director Kiriki (I forgot the name of his warden) but also one of the 12 wardens but went missing after the incident with Haru. Spoiler alert. The end shows that Meg and Haru (now on one team along with the rest) is looking for Kiriki so this is something really interesting but hanging.
But I really love is the last chapters of the manga. Where the Shadows shrunk to small sizes and how they choose their host. It’s pretty cute and heartwarming. So if you are not into shoujo like the one I have post and read before I would recommend this one. It’s short and refreshing. Also all types of characters are present. I really like the story not the characters.. hahaha.. But rest assured it is very enjoyable.
