Kuro, a little tomboy garbed in pitch-black with a little-tomboy-sized coffin on her back, heads out on a journey to find a certain witch. In the company of her faithful bat friend, Zen, Kuro encounters all manners of people and places which fire the readers' imaginations. Told in 4-koma (four panel) style with beautifully rendered art, Hitsugi Katsugi no Kuro is a manga that manages both dark and gothic and irresistably endearing on just about every page!
