Very good manga except the rushed and predictable end leaving way to much question

Good series.

Ouch guys, god damn I am really sorry. :( [snip]

 

Thanks for responding so quickly--I PM'ed you about it and within minutes, you replied to me & took care of it here.

 

Too few people actually go back & hide spoilers, and even fewer do it so quickly after it's pointed out directly to them. Well done!

Ouch guys, god damn I am really sorry. :( To be honest it was my intention to wrap the entire thing in a spoiler tag when I wrote it and somehow I spaced on it. Jeeze, I feel really bad now. 

You dick. Fucking spoilers. I haven't even started the series, yet.

Spoiled for me too. Even his/her quote needs to have a spoiler alert on it. :(

SHIKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!

 

*ahem*

 

That said, rather good series.  I felt like the ending was a bit abrupt, but I could sense things coming to an end, anyway.

A smart way to end this series. I didn't see the end coming which is always fine in a mystery. I did get a sense of closure and yes, I do think one can paint the whole picture with a little bit of reason and alot more imagination. Which is good. Good art not only feeds but feeds on imagination. I do not believe the way the characters acted was too inconsitent with reality, nor do I think anything cheesy, positive or obvious would have sufficed. It was smart, mature and yet quite naive - a contradiction that made it appealing.

"Hi, I'll just break the fourth wall and look innocent as hell".

fk bad endings

 5/5 cry

I dunno why, but I suddenly clicked on some random series.

Looking at the cover I didn't expect much, cuz it looked kinda... lame, but

I was so wrong. Read the first chapter and

 

 'OMG! I have to continue reading!!!'

 

I read it all in one go and my conclusion: overall it was written very well!

All actions interferring with each other, how it is all connected...

 

Spoiler

 

My final thoughts

 

This series is very interesting and hooks u really up. Prepare for tragic end though...

Spoiler

Not everything categorized under mystery genre means all "truth" must be revealed. if the translation stayed accurate, Kotegawa did said its a fantasy hitman story. And in case people overlooked it, the alt name of this Manga is: Your Knife. What else do you expect?

 

The pace is just right for young adults. In my opinion, the ending wasn't rushed in any way, loose ends is bound to happen no matter which Manga it is, as the author or editor needs to consider the pages available for each volume.
 
Tragedy stories often gives the abrupt ending feels but is pretty common if you have watched detective drama/movie before. Judging by kotegawa's past work, I don't think there is a continuation.

The MC 

Spoiler
seems like a fitting ending to me. Still, I would have preferred for him to end up in prison and to find redemption for the things he did.

 

Maybe.  On the other hand, I kind of like that the story didn't end with "justice" done, since "justice" was never really part of anything that happened in it... even if some people pretended that was the case.

 

It would have been nice to have a "happy ending" for everyone maybe, but at the same time I think it would have undercut the story.  But that's just my take on it.

"The best stories are the ones that leave you with more questions than answers."

 

I've had that phrase pop up in lots of places, whether it was from a professor, teacher, book, etc. I do think that a story that leaves you with the feeling that you didn't understand everything, is probably worth reading, usually confirmed by a second reading where you see more than you saw before leaving you with a clearer picture. To those of you who were confused with the resolution, I would say, maybe, take a moment to reflect on more than just "what was the plot? what happened? who was who?" and think more of the implications of everything. There is no final boss in this story, it is a tale of morality, in my opinion. The tough question that a lot of stories present to you, is, "Well, this guy killed, but he killed for reasons. Was he justified?" and so on.

 

Kimi no Knife is one of those stories. It's not the greatest story ever, but it has the trappings of something with a bit more thought than your run-of-the-mill manga.

...Oh, I guess I did take the final pages the wrong way. After reading the comments, it makes sense the mastermind would be... well, "the spoiler" instead of what I was thinking.

I thought the spoiler was only loosely associated with more people that dealt with the hitmans. Since spoiler did see at least a few of the main characters, I thought information regarding all the negativity is just said to spoiler in confidentiality from others having troubles with their actions. But that was thinking a bit too deep, being too nice, and would not explain the last panel as easily.

If this is an anime I'm pretty sure  i'm going to cry for the ending.... a sad song played when shiki and kuzumi died.... Ahhh just imagining it make me feel sad... this is just like the ending of phantom requiem for the phantom....

 

At the very least, I'm pretty sure Shiki's sister and Itsuki still love him dearly.... And Makihara started to study and all....

 

And did I miss something? why did everyone says that the priest is the mastermind?

Omg the last page. That bastard.

Well, I'll admit it kept me entertained all this time but after that ending I won't be recommending this manga unless someone asks for " one of those going-nowhere-plots that are all the rage".

I am very aggravated about the ending. It didn't answer why these different groups of people were keeping little girls captive, (I don't think thats just a coincidence), it didn't explain why this organization would kill off its own pawns instead of continually using the same hit men. It didn't explain how this organization had the money to pay all of these people or how it got formed, especially if it was led by a priest, I mean come on there has to be a story there. Nothing happened to the office lady who arranged it, which was bothersome. It generally felt like it had a rushed ending to me, and I hate that.

This story is not about that, the story is about Shiki.

I might have gotten something from reading this, but it wasn't enjoyment and it def wasnt positive which is why I was disappointed.  I thought the idea of the story was really good but just not executed well.  I think a lot of details were left open-ended which for me is frustrating because I think every little thing has meaning and when it turns out the author forgets about certain things or doesnt address them it pisses me off... Anyway, just because I didnt like this doesnt mean you wont.  It was a good tragedy-type story and emo type story that is really depressing. Many people like that so if you do, please indulge.

 

I can understand where you're coming from.  I think this also touches on a few other things.  For example "what is entertainment?"

 

There are a lot of stories that won't give people joy simply due to their nature.  The Walking Dead is a very popular comic and TV show, but it's full of darkness and very rarely has any real joy coming out of it.  There are victories for the protaganists, sure, but more often than not they are bitter ones, and small ones as well.

 

The same is true here.  There are small victories, and bitter ones.  I don't agree that it was poorly executed.  I do understand there being some frustration over the many loose ends (and I'd be happy to see a sequel to maybe help tie up some of them) but I also think that there being loose ends, that the "good guys" didn't resolve all the issues brought up, is intentional.  Because really, it's hard for those things to really be resolved like that without injecting more "convenience" than is already in the story.

 

It's meant to be a tragedy, and while there won't be much of a happy feeling for everyone at the end, I don't think that makes it a bad story.  Maus and Habibi are somewhat similar (though they have "happier" endings... kind of) to use some more western examples.  Or watching Breaking Bad (by report, I never watched that myself so I could be wrong).

 

 

But of course, I can't tell you or anyone else what to like or not, I just had these thoughts, and felt like sharing them.

I mean for someone like Hosaka who is THAT observant, to not even think twice about that priest's comments was kinda frustrating.  I mean he reacted at first but then just moved on.

He already quit his job and confronting the priest is a foolish move (if that guy truly turns out to be the mastermind) because now hosaka is living for his wife. I figured he must've learned a page or two from shiki's tragic life story.
