Asura Girl

Front Cover
Haikasoru, Nov 18, 2014 - Fiction - 300 pages
Seventeen-year-old Aiko lives a life of casual sex and casual violence, though at heart she remains a schoolgirl with an unrequited crush on her old classmate Yoji Kaneko. Life is about to get harder for Aiko, as a recent fling, Sano, has been kidnapped, and the serial killer Guru-Guri Majin (Round-and-Round Devil) has begun slaughtering children. The youth are rioting in the streets, egged on by the underground Internet bulletin board known as Ten-no Koe, the Voice from Heaven. Expecting that Yoji will come and save her from the madness, Aiko posts a demand for her own murder on Ten-no-Koe, but will she be left waiting...or worse?

If you are interested in reading this book, you should know a little about it. I bought this because I was interested in the author, otaro maijo, after reading his story 'drill hole in my brain'. I had high expectations for the book, and I am overall satisfied.
What you need to know-otaro maijo is a crazy person, and his stories are very messed up. Many parts will make no sense, and the books are just all over the place.
This is what I enjoyed so much about drill hole, so it makes sense why I like this book too. If you don't like books like this, you are better of not reading.
