Souichi Tsujii, lover of all things wicked and occult, returns to do what he does best: casting mischief and curses on those around him. This time, he attempts to capitalize on his mystic powers, play his hand at popularity, pester his grandfather into building him a coffin, and as usual, torment his elder brother Kouchi. And like always, his shenanigans tend to backfire on him, though this time they may have a more lasting effect.

Souichi's a godawful brat but he's also quite the interesting character. He's got the whims of a kid and he's not the good guy, two things which aren't common for a Ito-sensei MC. I couldn't even really dislike him because he'd occasionally just be relatable.

In addition, he's a character we've already met in Voices In The Dark and New Voices In The Dark even though it was under.... different circumstances, let's leave it at that.

Again, Ito-sensei manages to mix comedy into his horror! Reading episodes of the lives of a family and classroom where there's this weirdo kid who really believes he can put curses ...

Mixed Feelings
This is mostly a continuation of the previous volume, with mostly the same cast. Souichi is involved for the first four chapters, while a new potentially recurring antagonist makes an appearance in the last two.

Story, 6: The premises were still good for this volume, but the overall execution didn't thrill me. There were a lot of unanswered questions (which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I was left unsatisfied for most chapters). I appreciated that the overt occult from the previous volume was mostly abandoned in favor of ghosts or deteriorating psyches.

Art, 7: Solid as always. There were a few more ghastly-looking characters ...
