The first in a trilogy of stories, Takeshita Demons is a sometimes gruesome tale about a young girl called Miku and her family who cannot seem to escape their Japanese demons. Miku and her friend Cait have to face Nukekubi, a bloodthirsty demon who has a habit of losing her head just before devouring little children.
Takeshita Demons has that unique look of a manga novel that would appeal to its readers. Suitable for brave young readers but be warned — do not read late at night.
