Having finally found himself free to end it all, Seiichi is pulled back from the brink by a telephone call from the police: "We have your mother in protective custody."

Facing Seiko for the first time in twenty years, Seiichi finds an old woman who neither recognizes him nor seems to fully recognize herself. And yet, during their strange reunion, her memories return.
Seiichi's rage erupts, but he cannot bring himself to strike the woman who plagued his thoughts all these years.

And later, the feelings in his heart draw him inexorably back to her side...

Thus begins their long, long night together—and Seiichi gets his first glimpse into the true source of the darkness within his mother.

About the Author


Only in his late-thirties, Shuzo Oshimi is already considered a seasoned veteran of the Japanese comics community. Winner of the most important comics awards for newcomers, the Tetsuya Chiba Award in 2001, Oshimi has been penning quirky slice-of-life dramas now for over a decade for major manga publishers including Kodansha. After drawing nine series, Oshimi's star began to rise in 2008 with the release of his first hit, Drifting Net Cafe. This horror-themed homage to the legendary Kazu Umezzo work, Drifting Classroom, was adapted into a live-action series, and propelled Oshimi onto an international stage. He would soon reach new heights in 2009 with The Flowers of Evil.
As to date he has over 13 works which include serializations and art contributions.
