Yasuhiro Takagi could have been an average seventeen-year-old high school sophomore, but recently he's decided that he wants the experience of killing somebody. With meticulous detail he ponders how and when the event will take place. Should he pick a stranger or someone close to him? A yakuza to help society, a celebrity, someone old or young? And above all else, what will people think of him when he does it?
Itsuki Kamiyama is a young man in high school who is morbidly obsessed with murders and death; he even combs through the paper for new information about killings. One day when he notices his classmate Yoru and the scars on her pale wrist, he sees that she too shares his interest in death. Together, the two of them manage to solve a string of murders - not for any sense of justice, but rather out of curiosity. Yet, when does it get to be too much? And what happens when Itsuki stumbles upon a dark secret from Yoru's past?
Personally I enjoyed Goth more than His Murder Scheme but both deal with the perverse appeal of killing and ask you to understand the killer and his frame of mind.
Both these short manga are about the same thing, killing and a killers frame of mind. Kare no Satsujin Keikaku gives off a more realistic, everyday vibe in order to make it disturbing and Goth is very "dark and gritty", but if you liked one of these, it's definitely worth checking out the other.
Both of these manga are short stories murder and death. "Goth" is more of a yandere-romance manga, but "Kare no Satsujin Keikaku"'s nonchalant way of addressing homicide makes it more disturbing. Both are worth a read if you can handle the themes.
Rumors tell of mermaids that appear at the school's pool at night. It is said that if you eat their flesh you'll be able to have the person you love - but only if you can see and catch them. Yoshiko and Haruko are on the hunt for the mermaids, having found a notebook that chronicles the ways that previous girls found and ate the mermaids. In the dead of night they say a chant and the mermaids appear - but they aren't quite what was expected...
School Ningyo and Kare no Satsujin Keikaku are two one shots that have a delightfully awesome twist. Don't get me wrong - both are (flavors of) horror... people who liked one should surely read the other.
Both of these short manga are essentially about the murderous intent of school students for their own entirely selfish reasons. If you liked the darker aspect of one then you may well enjoy the other.
A brother treated his sister like gold, giving her items to make her beautiful, watching her grow older and letting her know how lovely she had become. Yet beneath the surface of his facade lies a deeper truth - the truth behind their relationship and what has happened...
Where Kare no Satsujin Keikaku is about killing, and Die about suicide, both are about the frame of mind of someone taking a life. Both one shots, they manage to bring across a sense of uneasiness in a very short amount of time by talking about the motivation of the killer / victim. Disturbed by one of them and wanting more? Look no further.
Nakanishi is fresh out of reform school and stuck at a dead-end job with an abusive boss. But when an internet friend tells him about a game called Duds Hunt, he soon becomes deeply involved in a new life full of excitement and violence. Reaping thousands of yen from the misfortunes of others, Nakanishi comes to love Duds Hunt – but where does it end?
Kare no Satsujin Keikaku and Duds Hunt are two peas in a pod, and it's hard to say why without spoiling. Both keep you engaged till the end and then have a shocker that you won't see coming, with a very dark/delinquent tone. Just trust me and check it out!
A vampire awakens after three hundred years of slumber, only to be asked by a pretty young girl if she can become his apprentice. He agrees, but only if she brings him someone to feed upon that piques his interest...
