She is woken up in the middle of the night in time to see a horrible sea-monster, surprising no-one. If that face was on someone who was watching her boyfriend make out with someone else, that would be exactly as valid — the level of shock and indignation and sinking fear is somehow exactly the same to Mimi as watching a rotting sea-monster trundle out of the waves. Anyway, the next day Mimi is hanging out at one of the little cafes because she understandably wants to go home.
Naoto thinks she was just seeing things and keeps encouraging her to stick around. Anyway, rather than just giving them their fucking daquiri, she starts talking about ghosts and spirits.
I still have absolutely no clue why Mimi is with this asshole. Good stuff! Vacant Eyes : Just once actually, when Furusawa is dead! A couple of the ghosts have white eyes, but most of them are purpilled to show maximum horror. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.

Mimi's Ghost Stories (Manga) - TV Tropes
When a young woman is discovered brutally murdered in her own apartment, with an intricate pattern of lines carved into her face, Copenhagen police detectives Jeppe Korner and Anette Werner are assigned to the case. Is she the culprit—or just another victim, trapped in a twisted game of vengeance? An Unsafe Pair of Hands. Chris Dolley. I laughed out loud in public in response to the quirky plot twists.
On his second day he's thrust into a high-profile murder case. A woman's body is discovered in an old stone circle - with another woman buried alive beneath her. The pressure on Shand is enormous. The media is clamoring for answers, but everything about the case is baffling. Then a local journalist singles out Shand as the reason for the lack of progress, and goads him at a press conference.
Shand responds by inventing a lead, and keeps on lying - to the press, his boss, his team - telling himself that he'll solve the case before anyone finds out. And then another murder occurs. And had there been a third? Shand begins to doubt his ability.
He's desperate, increasingly unpredictable, pursued by an amorous psychic, and somehow gaining a reputation for arresting livestock. Which will break first? The case, or Shand? Back to Bologna.
