This series was known as Human Doll Contract by many people, but Yu Wo clarified that "Human Doll Contract" is a subtitle, the name of the first case (spans V1-V2). The second case is called "In the Name of God," and it will probably be around 2 volumes as well. Cai Hong Zhong, the artist who drew the 1/2 Prince manhua, has recently started a manhua adaptation of this series. You can see some images on his Facebook.

Ahhh! I knew it! (not really actually) I had seen a few pictures on facebook because Yu Wo had shared some, and I thought the characters looked too much like some from the 1/2 Prince manhua... So it was from the same artist! No wonder then! I hope we'll be able to see more soon.
Do not thoughtlessly tear down old walls! Were You ever the object of devotion to another heart?
I asked Cai Hong Zhong how much of the novels the manhua adaptation will cover. At the moments, the plans are only for the first two volumes, which are titled Human Doll Contract. The manhua adaptation is titled Human Doll Contract and not Illusions, Lies, Truth, the name of the entire series.
I can't wait to see it~. The first chapter has just been published in Taiwan this month. Since the manhua will only cover the first two volumes, I wonder how many chapters of the manhua that'll take. Maybe just 1 to 2 volumes?
From the chapters PR has released, what kind of theories are there? We know that there are creepy BJD (ball-jointed-dolls) and those things in real life, they cost hundreds of dollars. That people with the ability to 'call' are very few, and that calling them once makes them an illusion, twice a lie, and thrice a truth. That being said, most people can only call them into illusions, and even few lies, and even less a truth.
We also know that there are plenty of people with skills to attract the spirits, and that the skills are hereditary. That being said, I don't think that the spirits can inherit it, only through flesh and blood can they come I think. I'm guessing, since the author (coughblatantselfinsertationqueenofpunsmybumcough) seems to have to the skill and knowledge, but I don't think much trouble has accumulated since then. I don't think either that an ability-user attracts trouble. It is the trouble that only arises if one tries to figure it out and thus makes trouble since they're not sure about it and want to know more.
I think this is going to confront with many of the issues that arises from the illusion-turned-lie-turned-truth. The spirits that have appeared seem not to be the kind to cause trouble, since the four that have already appeared do not seem to be particularly cruel or otherwise. There is a distinct possibility of them eating souls, but it is unlikely at this moment. The question is why? Why are they suddenly appearing? Why do they seem to be attracted to solely ability users? Why not everyday people? If they wanted souls, undoubtedly there are thousands more appealing, but it seems like the ability draws them. It's interesting, I think the author hasn't been confronted with complications as of yet, major ones that would have much upheaval but it seems undeniably interesting this series.
I'm happiest when I'm me. I might not be sugar and spice and everything nice but I promise I'm here to stay. Other girls who are sugar and spice and everything nice are lucky. I'm all sarcasm and wine and not everything's fine. But I'm here to stay okay?
seppawku: figured i'd poke my head into the forums and see if anyone was interested
