On reddit manga they talked a lot about this manga, so back in 2017 I started reading it and I wait every week for a new chapter.
(I'm a little sad that the author announced that we entered the last arc ;_;)

Story: we are at Grace Field House were a lot of orphans live togehter with pther kids and "Mama", a woman who takes care of all the orphans. All children live happily until the age of 12, when they finally finds someone that will take care of them.
They daily life is simple: in the morning, after breakfast, they take some tests and after that they are free to play outside. There are some rules: to not leave the orphanage since the outside world is dangerous and to never venture past the gates.
One day, two children, Emma and Norman, break the rules and discover the secret about Grace Field House and the outside world.

The story is really good, the first arc is a little horror and really interesting. The manga have some major arcs that are really good (while after the first one it wasn't that interesting).
There's a lot of characters and they are well developed. Everyone has a role and it's easy to remember every character that appeared in the manga. Plus, there's a lot of mysteries that are slowly discovered.The art is good but sometimes seems that the drawing were made really quickly... but that's not a problem since they are cute. The landscape, later in the manga, are really well drawn.

My rating: 8/10
