Synopsis The first half of the book is made up by the titular story, a serial killer thriller that gets all kinds of meta and crazy as it progresses The second half of the book consists of a short interview with Kago and Ryuichi Kasumi, a Japanese crime fiction writer and a number of short stories.Review This really surprised me This is the type of story where you feel as if you can figure out the entire plot just from reading the first chapter It s intentionally set up to seem extremely Synopsis The first half of the book is made up by the titular story, a serial killer thriller that gets

stories.Review This really surprised me This is the type of story where you feel as if you can figure out the entire plot just from reading the first chapter It s intentionally set up to seem extremely cliche and uninspired only to completely turn your head upside down quite literally in some ways somewhere in the middle It s extremely meta as well, the author cleverly inserts himself as a character in the story and manipulates many of the other characters without ever directly meeting them The way it plays with framing, angles and perspective is extremely creative It rivals the best of Junji Ito s stories in terms of bizarre body horror as well as having the psychological manipulation tactics of something like Homunculus by Hideo Yamamoto.The main story isn t anything to write home about, but it s worth reading for the deconstruction of horror manga comic tropes and techniques as well as the meta commentary about the industry After reading Super Powered Mongol invasion, I found this one Again, disturbing and unsettling but utterly skillful storytelling Why do some of the most creative writers feel the need to push boundaries specifically in the areas of violence and sex I m looking at you, Ennis The first story,which is most of the book, focuses on a group of friends who are trying to find a serial killer who may or may not be one of them It intercuts that narrative with another one where the author himself is After reading Super Powered Mongol invasion, I found this one Again, disturbing and unsettling but utterly skillful storytelling Why do some of the most

he is known for with a straight up whodunit, which is the direction he wants to go as a creator Needless to say, the way it all wraps up is surprising and utterly unexpected There are a handful of short horror stories afterwards that remind me of Ito s but that push the envelope further than I ve seen Ito do yes, I know I love the unexpected directions the stories go in everything I ve read of Kago s so far but I ve got to be careful not to overexpose myself to this kind of material It s a conundrum It had so much potential that is hurtful how bad it ended. .Epub ♗ Fraction ♫ The first half

totalmente natural dentro del tema que trata la historia ,realmente lo disfrute mucho, la pase bomba leyendoloes un total mindfuck The first story is a wonderful, weird meta murder mystery for the most part, but stumbles a bit at its reveal that pushes the envelope a bit too far into just straight up goofiness for my tastes The shorts included are real creepy though, so it all balances out.
