What would happen if I just sit here?
Today we have the long awaited (for me, at least) volume of oneshots by the masters of bizarre Nishioka Kyodai!
You might remember the oneshot Me-Bug which we’ve released, together with Megchan’s Scanlations and Habanero Scans previously.
Yes, I’m surprised as well.
Important edit: 2 pages were missing from the original release and can be found here separately,
or on the manga’s page, as always. I apologize for the inconvenience.
I never thought this day would come, because unfortunately, Yorukumo didn’t seem to have been garnering enough attention, but thanks to Megchan (who translated the first 15 pages) and Village Idiot Scans, who took care of the rest, we are able to bring you the 2nd chapter of this very dark and mysterious manga.
It’s been a long while since the last release, so I suggest reading the first chapter before diving into this one.
The gist of the story is this – a dystopian world where the rich have everything while the poor have to live day by day, starving for the bare necessities.
There’s also the forest, a place where the dejects of society go. It’s a forbidding, dangerous place, but as we find out in the 2nd chapter, most likely dehumanized by misconception. But, its bleak reputation is not undeserving. Macabre practices take place there – from butchering bodies for less than kosher purposes to ruthless assassins raised from childhood to kill mercilessly.
We follow the story of Kiyoko, who runs a restaurant with her widowed mother and Yorukumo (lit. dark spider), one of the assassins mentioned above. Remember, things are never as they seem.
And when you open your mind and see (after more exposition from the 2nd chapter than I’ve provided here), the image above will take a whole new meaning.
Notice the amount of synonyms to “dark”.
