All Sabato Obiga wants is to have a girlfriend, but his bizarre and death-obsessed family always seem to get in the way. Though Sabato himself has regular interests, the Obiga family is another story: they love anything black; decorate the house with skeletons, gravestones and spider webs; and always seem to scare away any potential leading ladies. Sabato begs his family to act normal, but they refuse to change who they are for anyone... a trait that Sabato is sorely lacking.
Anna is a young vampire that adores anything and everything cute, especially fluffy animals, which she turns into adorable minions to service her every whim. Thus, when the circus comes to town, promising a menagerie filled with exotic animals, Anna just can’t resist a visit!
Akira Sakamoto is a typical teenager – and that’s the problem! He’s the only normal one in a family of incredibly attractive people: he has a father that looks great in drag, a mother that looks younger than himself, an older brother that was worshipped at school, and two very opposite sisters. Though his family does everything to make Akira feel special and a part of the group, he can't help but feel an outsider in his own home. Then one night, the truth comes out with very surprising results...
Family Complex and Haunted House are about teenaged boys that don't fit into their own families. In Haunted House (where the family is obsessed with death), this is played mostly for laughs, while Family Complex (where the family is ridiculously beautiful) goes into a more serious mini-character study for each of the family members. But despite their differences on the surface, everyone loves each other (d'aww...).
Mikaya moves into an apartment building filled with eccentric tenants, including a girl obsessed with decomposing corpses, a door-to-door butcher dressed as a Revolution-era French aristocrat, and a man who always wears swim goggles and rarely leaves his bathtub. But the strangest thing about this apartment is the man who previously lived in Mikaya's room, K. Though his body was never found, everyone is convinced that the man died - a fact that puts the girl in the middle of a peculiar and bizarre mystery...
Haunted House and The Funeral Procession of K are josei series about a "normal" dude in a house full of odd people (many of who are obsessed with death). The artstyles are extremely similar- grays and screentones are rarely used, so there's a striking contrast between the black and white. Each also has a gothic lolita-ish look.
