First off, this is not a serious story. It's absurd and ridiculous, and completely aware of it. The supernatural aspect is not even the main thing you'll need suspension of disbelief for - rather, the main character's approach to what's thrown at her provides most of the humor and double-take moments in this story.
We open with the story of the Monkey's Foot, a powerful amulet that can grant its owner three wishes, with consequences as bittersweet and morbid as you can imagine. Afterwards, we're introduced to the heroine of the story, Mariko, who is quite sarcastic and doesn't seem too heartbroken after losing her boyfriend,
Makoto, to a car accident. Surprisingly logical and quick to find solutions and loopholes, she deals pretty well with Makoto coming back as a zombie and all the...inconveniences that that entails.
However, as entertaining as the story and characters are, the ending is what makes this oneshot beautiful (now there's a word you didn't expect to hear in relation to dried-up corpses, eh?). Without giving too much away, it puts the rest of the story in a completely different light. and offers some explanation to Mariko's seemingly absurd behavior.
You won't see any artistically drawn panels here, and the art is the type that you'd normally find whenever characters do something "silly": a bit into deformed territory but not chibi either. If anything, I'd place it on the bad side, as it reminds more of doodles than a finished product. For a bonus, check out the reactions of the people in the background.
It doesn't matter if you're not a fan of horror, the horror aspect of this isn't meant to shock or be taken seriously (and if you really can't stomach it, you can focus on the comedy aspect instead). Plus, at only 17 pages, this is a story worthy of the attention of any mystery fan with a dark sense of humor.
