Apparently, the author intended the story as horror and is very surprised how everyone is rooting for her.

There's plenty of stories about villains and monsters where the audience ends up cheering on the evil character. This story is structured in a way where that's going to happen most of the time - we see from Satou's view, learn about how she thinks, and naturally end up sympathizing with her. Even if we decide that she's a crazy murderer, and that Shio would be better off after the police and social workers intervene, the nature of the narrative is such that Satou's actions drive the plot forward. Anything that might stop her appears to the reader as a threat, and we respond by rooting for her.

 

Even aside from her role as the protagonist, she's simply a compelling character. We're curious about her, and want to see more. People are far more interested in Hannibal Lecter than in the agents trying to catch him.

It really isn't surprising that fans of this series like Satou.

Is the author really trying to justify the main character and make her look "kind"? Because she is basically the most amoral character in a manga full of narcissists and pedophiles.

RIP in peace, Shouko-chan. You'll always live on in Satou's heart (and as a bloodstain on the wall.)

buckling the fuck up for the ride that the next chapter will be.

She's dead. Or going to recive bonk or two in the head.

function yandererererer(self, bodycount)
{
   local i = bodycount
   set(bodycoung, i, ++)
   return printf(fiend)
}

Shouko and Satou's relationship is hard to read. For all Shouko claims to love Satou (as a friend), she barely knows anything about her. Of course, we walked into their story halfway through, so we never saw them together before Satou changed. But still, it feels like Shouko only values Satou as someone who allows her to be a different person than she usually is. Being with Satou is somehow synonymous with freedom from her regular constricted lifestyle; Satou's actual existence as a person is subordinate to the symbolic function she serves in Shouko's life.

So she admires Satou, and knows her well enough to see through her obvious lie, but their relationship feels shallow and stilted. Their "friendship" may just be another twisted variety of insincere "love" to add to those that have been presented so far.

Raws for the next 2 chapters show things getting pretty creepy with some kind of awesome ruse.

Justify?  Why does the author need to justify anything his MC does?  You're reading this manga with the wrong expectation, that the MC needs to have a certain set of morals/justification for their actions.  Sure, most other literature has a hero that has some sort of moral code, but this isn't "most other literature".

 

The edgy nature of the insanity of the MC is a big draw for this work.  And it's a very fine line between insanity and genius.

The fuck's the teacher doing there? Isn't he her "garbage handling" guy?

That can't be good for Shouko...

In before rando guy to "prove" she has a boy friend... better yet.. didn't she also invite that guy over... what if she's been planning this and plans to use him as her "boyfriend" :P

Well, thats another body to toss in the closet

Oh boy, I hope she can keep it together after she learns the truth (or part of the truth) if that's what Satou is really going to offer. She's not the kind of person you want thinking you're a dirty liar after she tells you something critically secret...

At least personally, I like Satou precisely because she's amoral, violent, obsessive, and erratic. Her almost inhuman thought process just makes her so delightful. The depravity in the other characters doesn't justify her actions, it just serves as a foil to stimulate her bizarre behavior and create a comparison between differing kinds of insanity.

We still don't have complete information about what she has done or why so it's possible she may yet be redeemed, but I find that unlikely. Hopefully we'll gain a deeper understanding into why she acts like this, but I think any kind of plot twist or sudden reveal that makes her into a "good" or "kind" person would be somewhat disappointing.

Spoiler

can't we have at least a normal friend around ? my common sense is fading 

one maniac lolicon , one murderer/abductor , one psycho siscon , one yuri slave , one pure delusion , one masochist 2face , one claiming to be queen , one child abuser , one possible friend who likely to call police ?

and this comment was written by someone with pedobear avatar lol x'D

Oh Jeez. Originally as I was reading this I was like "wow for hyping up his mother for being so great, she just left him there and ran away with his sister. Some piece of shit she was" -- but his rationale for staying was soooooo cartoony stupid. He was a kid, she should have known better than to agree to something so stupid and let her son get abused for five more years.

 

But now I wanna know what the hell Shio did to her mom who otherwise seemed really nice. Or maybe someone did something to her mom and it warped her...

 

God I want to know. Honestly, this is the most interesting manga I've read in some time.

Holy shit. The boy's name is Asahi. Their father was so much of a drunkard that he gave his first-born a beer's name (yes, it's also a normal name but so are Heineken and Guinness).

"May of killed"

 

What's that? A May of killing?

Sure I blame 6am releases... expect horrible spelling and word usable(well expect that normally)... no excuses :P

 

To late to fix it anyway. It's already on skim sites :P

Oh yeah, I'd completely forgotten that Satou was literally a slut until meeting this little girl... Her cute psychopathic smile totally made me forget and mentally cast her in a different light. That smile of hers is dangerous...

Seems sadly no one did the game.. but there is the translated ending :P!
