Mail Series : Titles in Order

Book 3
Private detective Reiji Akiba has a theory about those awkward moments and weird coincidences we all encounter in life. They are actually encounters with the dead-their way of sending us a message. But you may not want to open such strange mail from beyond-not unless you can see the ghostly attachment, like Akiba can. And not unless you carry a tool that can kill what isn’t alive, like Akiba’s sanctified gun Kagutsuchi . . . digging a divine grave to lay to rest the evil dead!

Volume Three opens with Detective Akiba taking a trip down memory lane, to his childhood, when as a young blind boy, he befriended a little girl in the woods near his house. In “Un-notifying,” Detective Akiba must help a young woman terrorized by the ghost of a lonely girl whose lifeline to the world of the living is an old cell phone.
Book 2
In Volume Two, detective Akiba comes to the aid of a terrorized man who is being stalked by what appears to be a possessed doll. But possessed by whom? Does the “victim” know more than he is letting on? Akiba’s job is never done, however, as his travels introduce him to a tormented young bride whose new husband has a mysterious past; a woman trapped in a haunted elevator; the lone survivor of a landslide whose not-so-lucky friends are trying to lure her to the afterlife; and more tales of ghostly terror by up-and-coming creator Housui Yamazaki!

• Mail was recently made into a live-action Japanese horror movie starring Chiaki Kuriyama–“Go-Go Yubari” from Kill Bill.

Book 1
Private detective Reiji Akiba has a theory about those awkward moments and weird coincidences we all encounter in life. They are actually encounters with the dead-their way of sending us a message. But you may not want to open such strange mail from beyond-not unless you can see the ghostly attachment, like Akiba can. And not unless you carry a gun that can kill what isn’t alive, like Akiba’s aptly named Kagutsuchi, ”the tool between God and earth” . . . digging a divine grave to lay to rest the evil dead.

Volume 1 of Mail opens with a model’s photo shoot at what was a lovely riverside. But someone’s thrown their trash away here: human bones. When the negatives in the darkroom reveal hidden horror, it’s time for the magazine to hire Akiba. The answers lie in the secret basement of a shunned house . . . but they don’t lie peacefully!
