March Story Vol. 1

Taking place in 18th century Europe, March Story finds the world overwrought by demons called Ill. Born out of the despair of humans, the Ill have the ability to possess objects and by proxy, those who touch the objects, compelling them to commit horrid acts of violence.
A group of hunters calling themselves the Ciste Vihad, track the Ill and collect them so as to prevent them from spreading their madness further.

March is one such Ill hunter with a secret of her own. Capable of exorcising the Ill from humans (so long as certain conditions are met), she also finds herself possessed by an Ill. While March retains her freedom of consciousness, the Ill lies dormant inside of her. Should March ever find true love, the Ill will awaken and devour her.
The first volume follows a similar format used for most series, being broken up into episodic tales before a prolonged arc can get rolling.

The first chapter acts an introduction to March and the world she inhabits though very little is revealed about the character's past aside from what is essential to following the story. From there, the volume takes March from one adventure to another, tracking Ill and disposing of them in grand fashion.
The final chapter narrates March's origins, showing how she came into possession of her powers and as a result, the loss of everything she held dear. The chapter is grisly to say the least, complete with tragedy, death, and showers of blood.

The artwork accentuates the horror aspects of the series with a combination of nightmare landscapes, gothic character designs, and heavy use of inking. Viz's decision to give the series a larger trim size is much appreciated given the sheer amount of detail prominent in each panel.
The narrative of March Story is both enchanting and heart-rending. Far too often, a story loses itself in the familiar trappings of horror and degenerates into one scare after another without a second thought to the development of the plot. March Story is different, using its dark imagery as a setup to better build upon the horrific thoughts and desires of those inhabiting March's world. As grotesque as it is beautiful, March Story is a nightmare worth having.
