Joshikousei ni korosaretai (I want to be murdered by a high school girl)
FURUYA Usamaru [Japan]
A suspense story about a high school teacher, HIGASHIYAMA Haruto, who desires “to be murdered by a high school girl”, and sets in motion an elaborate, abnormal scheme to make his dream come true. Meticulously laid foreshadowing and multiple viewpoints told from various characters shape the incident three-dimensionally and elucidate a novel-like composition with a realistic drawing style.
