About Strangulation Kubishime Romanticist Novel

Strangulation: Kubishime Romanticist is the debut work of author NISIOISIN. It is the second volume in the Zaregoto series.

It’s easy to love a person but difficult to continue doing so. Just as murdering a person is easy but continuing to do so is difficult. Unable, probably innately, to look away from the truth under any circumstances, a sincere, honest guy who’s lived thus far without grasping the notion of deceit—namely me—encountered in May a serial killer named Hitoshiki Zerozaki. He was a knife of a will, a knife of a dynamic, and a knife of nonsense.

A follow-up to NISIOISIN's unforgettable debut novel Decapitation, this revised North American edition of Kubishime Romanticist features a new cover and color insert by beloved series illustrator Take.

A mystery story, that isn't, but is.

by -

Strangulation, is the second book from the zaregoto series. There's no real need to read the first one, aside from some background knowledge. Strangulation has our main character going through a murder investigation, while figuring out who he is as a person, hanging out with a weird hyper-energetic girl, and becoming friends with a serial killer. If that sounds out there, you're totally not wrong. But Nisioisin's writing comes through, and the dialogue is as clever as ever. if your looking for a good light novel to read, this isn't such a bad choice.

a mystery novel that yesn't

Nisoisin's(monogatari series) strangulation is filled with mystery, clever dialogue,broken characters, and weird philosophy. It is a nice smooth roller coaster ride, with one huge scream inducing drop near the end. If you need a good light novel to pass the time, this is definitely a good option.
