oh actually interesting that only Tokiko's family is on the death page. I wonder if new characters will be added in once they've exhausted the ones already there

We're rapidly running out of people, this can't continue for long. I'm also curious to find out what's wrong with the MC, she clearly has a major mental disorder if she feels nothing about any of this. Can't wait to find out if she even cares that her own life is in danger.

As was the case with Another or something like Final Destination even, the more the over the top deaths pile on the harder it is to actually care, the story sliding steadily from horror to comedy. It is decidedly a me-problem, I recognize that, but all the death and dramatics just start being funny to me over time. The ultimate conclusions of these stories tend not to be very satisfying either, but we shall see.

This is not a criticism of the format necessarily, just something I have noticed about myself I suppose. Hmm, maybe I was Tokiko all along...?

I don't think it's just you and I don't think it's even a problem. The metamorphosis from horror to humor is part of the enjoyment with works like this. If the author leans into the over-the-topness, even better.

Ah yeah, that's my bad for using the word "problem" there, I did not intend to characterize it as such really. I agree that such works can still be quite entertaining, though I sometimes lament the loss of that initial tension. Either way, good to see someone else sharing my POV on this!

Karma truck coming thru.
When I see the family 3×3 pics can't help singing the Brady Bunch theme song.

I actually cackled when that lady got annihilated but the truck. At a certain point, it's just comical.

No no, it's better when they take it completely seriously. The earnestness is what makes it funny.

Ohh, it's by the same person who wrote "Liar Satsuki Can See Death."

I wondered why the art style seemed familiar.

I wasnt gonna read this at first since I have a lot on my plate but the same author? Definitely reading it now

I like it, though it does seems to be going fast. ^^; Now I'm more curious about tokiko considering she survived that.

This thing has 36 chapters? But we only have three family members left. Also really curious why there is so much death happening all of the sudden. They mention deaths before this, but that was like only 4 people over 10 or so years. The body count is clearly escalating.

Is anyone else hoping for Miyuki to pull through?

same! she seems to be the only one that cares for tokiko and tries to rationalize the situation. i hope the author will give us more background on why tokiko specifically was adopted by the family, because there's seems to be some dirty motive behind it.

Gotta say, I dislike the older detective a lot. Also why the hell is Tokiko not dead lol, I wasn't sure at first but this story is definitely supernatural.

Anw here's to hoping that Miyuki-nee doesn't get killed, I really like her so far. Very curious as to how the niece Rina will react to all the new deaths.

Thank you noighd for another chapter~!

Earnest over-the-topness is chef's kiss
