Her first encounter with Toriko Nishina was on the Otherside after seeing "that thing" and nearly dying. Ever since that day, exhausted university student Sorawo Kamikoshi's life changed. In this Otherworld, full of mystery, which exists alongside our own, dangerous beings like the Kunekune and Hasshaku-sama that are spoken of in real ghost stories appear. For research, for profit, and to find an important person, Toriko and Sorawo set foot into the abnormal. A tale of two girls' bizarre exploration and survival, brought to you by an up-and-coming sci-fi author!

Preliminary (7/? eps)
This series is great! But it definitely flows better as a visual medium like the manga or anime. Many, many words are spent in the novels describing the visual appearance of entities they encounter in the Otherside or choreographed action scenes. It's a very difficult balance to strike when including supernatural entities that require long descriptions to be imagined but not being too bogged down in the details to tell the story. An increasingly common thought during reading was "man, I wish there was an illustration of this spectacular sight that's being described," that rarely was fulfilled. The novels are probably best used as an ...
