Film Main Manhwa YMMV
(잭 프로스트) is an ongoing manhwa series by Jinho Go (고진호). It follows the story of Noh-A Joo, the new student at Amityville High School. Things start off rather poorly for Noh-A as she quickly comes to realize that the school is not as it appears. Caught in an interschool war between vampires, monsters, and other creatures, she must quickly learn what her new role is as the "mirror image," and how to handle the weird nurse Jin, the mysterious Jack Frost and his boss, Helmina.
What is known about Amityville: There have been 13 wars/classes, only Jack has survived them all. There are 4 districts North, East, South, West, and north is smallest. The combined population of the 4 districts is equal to a country in the living world. Those who come there are removed from the karmic cycle of death and rebirth, thus death is truly final there with no hope of any reincarnation or afterlife. There have been multiple statements hinting that the mirror image is somehow able to change this.
Not to be confused with the

the demon that goes hee-ho!
Jack Frost provides exampes of: Absurdly Powerful Student Council: The heads of the four districts. Action Girl / Dark Action Girl: Eva, another death god. We're not yet sure if she's evil.

Badass Longcoat: The Devil Thread. IT GROWS BLADES!!! Battle in the Center of the Mind: Helmina vs Siegfried. In Jin's mind. Blood Knight: Guess who. Hint: *they've* been mentioned already. Also Ji-Hon, who also wore the Devil Thread. Blood Magic: Noh-A's blood can heal people. She's not thrilled about it. Break the Cutie: Why exactly is Noh-A dead in the first place? She committed suicide in life after realizing she was a Doom Magnet and being unable to stand the loneliness and the rumors. Butt Monkey: Hansen and Noh-A early on. The Chessmaster: Helmina's shaping up to be this. As is her rival Camilla. Cold Sniper: Kay. Also Improbable Aiming Skills. Complete Immortality: As the Mirror Image, Noh-A can no longer die. She's smart enough to realize this is a GOOD thing. Crapsack World: Amityville is the land of the dead, after all. Creepy Cool Crosses: Hansen has one on his forehead. Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Hansen. Kills 30 vampire zombies by himself. Curb-Stomp Battle: Is Jack fighting something? It will turn into one of these soon enough. Cute Monster Girl: Eva, the death goddess. Daddy's Girl: Noh-A. Ethan uses this against her. Dead All Along: Everyone. Doesn't change much except for Noh-A.

Doom Magnet: Noh-A Driven to Suicide: She jumped from a skyscraper. Dropped Bridges On Them: Noh-A's parents, friends and random animals on the street that pass her meet horrible fates. One girl's particularly bitter about it. Eldritch Abomination: Jack, and the other death gods. Emotionless Girl: Jin, who may in fact be an android. Even Evil Has Standards: Even Ji-hon thinks Camilla was a bit hard on Hansen. Expy: Of Hellsing. Don't hold that against it. No, really. In-comic, Jack looks a bit like Noh-A's father. Who is dead. Eyes Always Shut: A leader from the Kite family. He seems nice enough though. Face-Heel Turn: Ethan forces Noh-A into one. Fashionable Asymmetry: Eva. Fanservice: We're frequently treated to shots of Noh-A's panties and pretty much anytime Helmina shows up. Four Is Death: Again, the four districts. Frickin' Laser Beams: Jin keeps some in the wall, no less. She has a few others in a bowling ball thing. Generic Cuteness: Noh-A, regardless of what she thinks. God Is Evil: The Tailor of Amityville. He also made Jack's super spiffy Badass Longcoat. Oookay. Good Thing You Can Heal: If Noh-A weren't Nigh Invulnerable and already dead, Jack would have killed her by now. Thanks to the Devil Thread, Jack also has this ability. The Gunslinger: Jin, previously. Hansen as well. Hair-Trigger Temper: Surprisingly not Jack, Blood Knight that he is. Ji-Hon.

Meaningful Name: Somehow, Jack has the same name as the ONLY, as he died shortly afterwards doll Noh-A received from her father. Meganekko: Helmina.

Papa Wolf: Noh-A's dad once tosses himself over a cliff to break Noh-A's fall , and apparently fought an Eldritch Abomination to ensure her safety. Panty Shot: Noh-A and Eva. Helmina spends most of Vol. 4 parading around in her panties and garters for all to see. Of course, being she shows absolutely no signs of giving a crap.

Jack bites Arvid in the neck. He bit a VAMPIRE! Replacement Goldfish: Helmina looks just like Agathe, Hansen's lover before she was killed. Rule of Cool: But, of course. Running Gag: Noh-A's decapitations and pantyshots, Hansen's masochism, Helena's sadism, Jin ignoring the last two. Sadistic Choice: Jack receives one in the first book: back off or Avid makes Noh-A a vampire. Played for Black Comedy. Played completely for drama when Ethan holds Noh-A's father's soul hostage unless she joins the East. Sempai/Kohai: Or "Sunbei and Hubei." Jack says this to Avid. He is, of course, joking. Shadow Pin: The Devil Thread can also do this. It's pretty much a Swiss-Army Weapon. Shinigami: Jack's official title is Death God. Shoot the Hostage: Rather than let Avid bite Noh-A, Jack slices her head off. Fucking A, Jack. Shout-Out: To Hellsing and , for starters...
