(Synopsis taken from Goodreads)
I thought this was pretty decent. There were some things that I did not really like, including the extremely showy outfits these 14 girls were drawn as wearing.
The story was really interesting, though, and despite the fact that I didn't really understand exactly what was going on in the beginning, I can easily see this story and characters growing on me.
Overall, I hope I will find better manga than this, but it was enjoyable for my beginner status.
