One line summary:
Yowaito Nikki is a shounen one-shot that would be better as a two or more volume manga to help with the characterization.

What is this about?
In this world, there are swords with spirits dwelling in them. Hisui bears such a sword which has two downsides:

1) It makes him drunk
2) He cannot kill anyone with it.

It doesn’t help that people are after his life and he doesn’t know why…yet.

Protagonists who do not want to kill, have super special weapons, and are being chased by unknown forces is not new in manga or anime. But a sword that makes you drunk? That’s a read more

Manga: Stray Dog
Both are rather dark one-shot manga's set during an older year era during war, that has twists in them that one may or may not expect, but make both stories rememberable.
