When Saya was in middle school, her father had a mental breakdown – and that's when things began to change. Kyoko, her best friend, noticed the girl becoming distant, and Saya even began selling her body for money. But when the troubled teen met Mitsuko and joined her Suicide Club, Kyoko watched Saya gain a new, chilling sense of purpose and a deep desire to follow Mitsuko to the grave. Can Kyoko save her friend's life when all she wants to do is die?

These stories are very different but they have a similar atmosphere and emphasis on body horror. Jisatsu often emphasises the mouth and the power of the words people speak. Words that wound, words that sooth. In Look Me In the Eyes the emphasis is on the eyes. So much human interaction is done through the eyes, but what happens when humans lose their eyes?

While the stories are quite difference this emphasis on the power of different body parts give them a similar theme that makes them a good pairing.
