With only a bracelet as a clue, Nai searches for his lost friend, Karoku. Upon trying to find him, Nai encounters a rouge thief named Gareki who steals on a daily basis to survive. As the two meet and suddenly became wanted criminals, they got involved in an organisation called "Circus," the worlds most powerful Defense Organisation! What does Circus want from Nai and Gareki? And would Nai be able to find his friend Karoku with just the bracelet? -- Written by The Warping Penguin
Though still on going, Karneval is by far an -interesting- read.
Though the series starts of a bit slow, one may feel slightly bored by it. But do not stop! The story DOES get a lot better by Volume 8. In fact, this is where all the action starts; where all the real problems begin, and where we get to uncover the true nature of Circus!
There is an anime adaptation, which started airing in 2013.
I can conclude that from the episodes I have seen so far (since it's still on going prior to this blog post) that the anime HAS grasp the series in a more fascinating way, which may make newer readers find the Karneval series a lot more appealing.
So, do check em both out!
