Since the death of her sister, police force newbie Yuri Uguisu has been chasing the notoriously untraceable serial killer Masquerade. When a new corpse turns up in Odaiba, Yuri immediately goes on alert—only to recognize the victim as an old classmate, the alluring and mysterious Reina Myoko. When the police force calls in long-time consultant psychologist Seiren Higano for assistance in untangling the testimonies of Reina’s father, fiancé, and lover, Yuri meets the riveting, charismatic psychologist for the first time. Little does she know that Higano is none other than Masquerade himself. Faced with Reina’s case, Higano promises to get the answers, but no one is prepared for the conclusion reached in the interrogation room… In this cat-and-mouse tale of hunter and hunted, Eiji Mikage has woven a subtle and twisting tale of clashing motives and murky identities, where nothing anyone says can be taken at face value.

Summary: Serial Killer Higano is the misogynistic author self-insert who wants to punish women for “Justice!” All other characters don’t really matter as he’s enough to ruin whatever good story that was going on. Also Mikage probably read ‘Lolita’ and though that little girls are seducers (not what Lolita’s author intended). Also incest and rape. Basically totally gross.

(See: Violet Knight, Silver Siren)

It could have had the plot twist ending where she ended up with the harem too and escaped the game. No, she went with stalker bro and even ditched the much better Eita. Abusive men don’t need to be rewarded for suddenly acting decent. She tells the guy a million times to leave her alone and he doesn’t. He only had a change of heart to suit himself. He’s still getting what he wants, and that’s an object to put into his collection.

What gets me is that she doesn’t ever question her liking at ...
