Because of love, they falter and linger. Because of love, we move forward with courage.These ghost stories are about human nature, relationships, and regrets.


It turns out that she too can see \"them\", that he is not alone…

High school student Chiutungalways wears his hair short with bangs. While he has a cute haircut, he often seems aloof and cold. It turns out that he lost someone he loved dearly. He keeps her last token, hoping to see her again. Because of his ability to see \"them\", he is known as the “ghost bus” to the lost souls.

Things changed when he met Chingching, a classmate with an opposite personality. They are as different as fire and ice, yet they possess the same mysterious sensibility and ability. Chiutung had always felt lonely and misunderstood. The meeting with Chingchingsparked a small warm flame within him.

Together, they encounter ghosts that linger in the world, unable to let go: a man who lost his memories and unaware that he is dead, the dog living in the kitchen of a stranger's house, the dark girl who wanders in the art classroom, the teary-eyed little boy who got separated from his mother, and the childhood sweethearts who are separated by death and unable to communicate their feelings…Chiutung and Chingching begin to bond over time. They've come to trust each other and grown closer as they resolved the misunderstanding between them.

Ghost stories can be so gentle and poignant.

Created by the highly anticipated young Atayal cartoonist RIMUI and based on the theme of mystery and spirituality, Where are the ghosts going? is set on a high school campus. The images come to life with a fast-paced storyline, vivid characters, as well as an aesthetic style that is fresh and free-flowing.

Cartoonist Ruan Guang-min (阮光民), winner of the Golden Comic Awards: \"This is not a horror comic book. Rather, it tells these heart-warming stories in which the worlds of the living and the dead meet.\"
