Zombie Kiss Volume 3: Beauty, Corpses, Killer
I knew a man…
He had a friendly smile,
And was always helping others.
But I could feel that under his smile…
Something was hidden.
Something mysterious, cold, and frightening,
Like an endless rabbit hole.
The man’s name was…
Is this a joke…?
That was her thought, but the young girl’s throat was dry and the hands that held the sketchbook was shaking.
This is a story…surely a story…or maybe Namfon was playing a prank on me. Didn’t seem like her. And this is a really bad prank.
Lilith glanced around the void classroom. It made her feel lost.
Was it this late already? So quiet…why are there no teachers or janitors around?
The girl shook creepy thoughts away. She stood up, and her eyes caught on a message at a corner of the book.
Vengeance…is the dark side of love.
If love is a bond that never ceases,
Vengeance is the anger that never fades.
The more the love, the more the hate,
Intertwined like a spider web
That never let its prey go
Lilith… my dearest friend.
Before we graduate and go our separate ways for college, I have something I must confess.
Actually, I should have said this from the first day we met, but no matter how much I wanted to spill everything I hid, I was a coward and didn’t know where to start.

I hope confessing everything in this friendship notebook to you would calm my troubled heart, even if a little.

The adventures of Jabami Yumeko in the academy of gamblers continues.
I’ve never done a 2 in 1 anime review before, but I’ll do that here since I want to point out some thoughts I have on these two OVA.
First, I’m pretty sure you’re like ‘wth’ when you read the title, since you probably haven’t heard of either of them. Don’t worry, I’ll introduce you to them. Behold, spoiler awaits.
Let’s start with Amon Saga.
Amon Saga was released in 1986, and upon watching it I screamed ‘Saint Seiyaaaaa’ not because those two were similar in art or story, but the atmosphere and animation were the same. Amon Saga follows Amon, a generic stoic protagonist with white hair who wants to avenge his mother. While on his path to revenge, he met a generic long-haired damsel in distress called Princess Lichia. The two had a Romeo-Juliet moment, ratta-tatta-tat, Amon takes revenge, get the girl, and be done. Or not.
This madness called Kakegurui (Compulsive Gambler) is just getting started.
Da ended the call after she finished telling her ‘Angel’s Corpse’ story on the late night show.
She sighed and hugged her pillow. After sharing her experiences with a bunch of strangers, the stress coiled inside her began to unwind. Maybe it’s because sharing her worries relaxed her mind.
Funny. She’d only ever listened to this program. She never thought she would be the one telling stories.
Then her phone rang. Continue reading
