A supernatural story of sexual awakening, growing up, and suburban vampirism, Happiness follows a dorky boy who is attacked by a girl in an alley.

Praise for Flowers of Evil:
“A shockingly readable story that vividly–one might even say queasily–evokes the fear and confusion of discovering one’s own sexuality. Recommended.” -The Manga Critic

“A page-turning tale of sordid middle school blackmail.” -Otaku USA Magazine

“By loving this manga I recognize what a sick and twisted individual I have become. While I can still say that I am not truly deviant, Flowers of Evil is a great reminder of my own thirst for power and my own personal corruption.” -Otaku Champloo
Book 5
LIFE OR DEATH

As the body count rises, the horror that has descended upon Makoto Okazaki’s life reaches an apex. The forces pursuing him and Nora are relentless, and they will not rest until they’ve captured their prey. But what fate awaits Makoto at their hands? And even as Yukiko continues her determined search for the truth and discovers the carnage that Yuuki has wrought, she is unprepared for the violent consequences…


Praise for Happiness:
“Shuzo Oshimi is a manga artist who is not afraid to play with your feelings.” — Turnaround


“A stunning new horror manga.” — Third Eye Comics

DARK APPETITES

Makoto begs Nora to undo the horrific change she has wrought upon his body, even as Yuuki is increasingly consumed by his own thirst. Unaware of his escalating taste for violence, Yuuki’s girlfriend Nao is convinced that her affection can tame the beast he is becoming. But even if the love of a girl will be enough to stop the body count from rising, Makoto is coming to realize that he’s merely the newest player in a very old war…
Book 3
BLOODLUST

After succumbing to the urge to drink Yuuki’s blood, Makoto and Yuuki escape from the dangerous Saku with their lives…or at least, with what’s left of them. As Makoto, and now Yuuki, deal with their growing thirst for blood, the two struggle to hold onto what’s left of their humanity – and resist the urge to hurt the ones they love. But when Nora offers Makoto a form of salvation, will he accept, turning his back on his family and friends, or can he find a way to continue living in the only world he’s ever known?
Book 2
CHANGES

Makoto Okazaki is changing. Having turned his former bully Yuuki into a strange kind of friend, he’s been forced to help confront Yuuki’s own tormentors. But even if Makoto’s bizarre new physiology might solve one problem, it is creating others. And behind all of Makoto’s problems lurk horrifying questions: Who was the girl who attacked him? What is happening to his body?

Why is he still so thirsty?
Book 1
The acclaimed new horror drama from the creator of Flowers of Evil

THE THIRST

Nothing interesting in happening in Makoto Ozaki’s first year of high school. HIs life is a series of quiet humiliations: low-grade bullies, unreliable friends, and the constant frustration of his adolescent lust. But one night, a pale, thin girl knocks him to the ground in an alley and offers him a choice.

Now everything is different. Daylight is searingly bright. Food tastes awful. And worse than anything is the terrible, consuming thirst. The tiny shames of his old life have been replaced by two towering horrors: the truth of what will slake his awful craving, and high school itself.
