by Fuyumi Ono
(Juuni Kokki novels, Ghost Hunt) & Fujisakia Ryu
(Hoshin Engi, Sakura Tetsu taiwahen).
It's one of Snoopycool
's new projects(joint with Aku-Tenshi). So far, three chapters have been released(well, one is a prologue).
The setting,so far? A tiny japanese village, which seems to undergo a strange,unidentifiable epidemic leaving many victims behind. May or may not be linked to the odd Kanesama family,which has just settled in a big neighbouring castle.
I'm not sure I'll manage to convey how enjoyable it is. No gore,but definitely very creepy.
The art(hgkdhfgkudhgkudh FUJISAKI RYU♥) really manages to convey that creepy summer atmoshpere of heat and strong sunlight. The fujisaki quirks and humour(in the characters) remain distilled here and there,but the overall ,while not being downright horror,slowly creeps into the back of your mind.
Definitely something to follow.
If you enjoyed/are enjoying Ghost Hound
, I think you'll like this as well.
Posting about this now because it's 02:23 am and no, I definitely shouldn't have read that before going to bed.
