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?
Fumio is a woman scorned. She’s alienated from her dear friend Kaoruko, but more importantly the love of her life, Takumi, appears to have fallen for a new transfer student at school. Upset and realizing that she can’t live without him, she does the only logical thing: she gets her chainsaw, builds up her resolve, and goes to kill both him and herself...
These two short manga treat death and murder like a normal, everday thing. The nonchalant and offhand fashion of the characters is pretty disturbing. However, the quality of the endings really differentiate these manga ("KnSK" has a much better ending than "SCS"). Otherwise, they would be very similar.
