Kakeru has had a crush on his classmate Natsume for months now and he's finally able to ask her out, only to find out that she ran away from home that same night. But Kakeru picks up on the subtle clues left behind and realizes Natsume was kidnapped.

Note to all scanlators:

This is what tethysdust said this week:
I recall someone asking about horror manga in the comments, and we do have a horror manga featured this week, "Odoro"! The older style of art kind of kept the atmosphere from being really creepy for me, but the horror occurrences have really interesting stories behind them. "Concierge" reminded me a bit of the anime "Bartender", in its tone and attitude towards service.
Here's what vyc had to say:
I liked Kakeru this week. Mystery series where main characters solve crimes with a little twist that the main character can turn on/off his "detective" skills. I did like the mysteries and the plot line overall but I did have a little hesitation on how long each case takes 1.5 volumes from the beginning to the end of a case.
Not really interested in much this week, although I guess Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
appealed to me the most and it might be interesting to see how someone without common sense acts. Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
