It was a splendid work drawn into the work world.

The ideas of tricks, information gathering, preparation, and execution are carefully drawn, and it is mainly based on high school knowledge.
However, there is a hole properly, which causes the main character to be tormented.
Also, it does not end only with tricks, it functions as a hint.

Also, the hero's fearlessness, mission sense, frustration, empty-handedness, they are painfully conveyed by detailed but easy-to-read depiction.

On the other hand, characters other than the hero are comparatively typistic, and it makes me particularly noticeable among women.
His brother-in-law sister, heroine-like heroine pretty classmate.
However, since it is made use of it properly in the story, there is no bad impression there.
I think that it is a story that follows the transition of feelings, going on with the third person of the hero's point of view, so I think that it was good that the difference in contrast of the depiction with the hero was rather clear.
Regarding Sone, it may be proof that you have written only actions and did not step on the inside.

However, contrary to content, the feeling after reading was refreshing.
I guess it is because the serious thought that the hero's "There is only this way" was passed through to the end.
It was not perfect, of course it was not praised, but he had nothing to do with it.

It was a good story with driving force that I wanted to read.
I understood the scene of the last paint, but I feel sorry ....

Many of his works are "black house", "angel of rage" and a grotesque image, but there are not so many aspects of "blue flame", youth group image a dramatic elemental work It is becoming.
A high school student who plans a complete crime of murder to protect his family is the main character. The story develops with his eyes, but the hero who is a high school student has a life-sized size that can not become an adult is appearing everywhere. Slightly self-centered and also feeling drunk to me (in fact the criminal plan I thought perfect was also a choreographer, the heroine was a bit bad) The feeling that I could not be an adult, including those parts I feel.
Human relations surrounding us is also youth itself, if the absence of anything would have lived happily as it is, the main character does not try what to do Twist your head to protect the family from the present situation, plan the murder after considering the maximum thing you can do now .
There was something to hurt the way towards a tragic end, contrary to its pure thought.
I think that the part as a youth group image play is well drawn rather than a mystery, I think that it is a wonderful work as a youth novel.

[good point]
The motive just to commit a murder is solid.
If nobody helps, I have no other choice but to defend.
Even though it is a murderer, I can quite sympathize. Determining power It may be the difference between behavioral power and wisdom alone.
There is a careless mistake in hurry, labor that you understand later, there is strange reality.

[Bad point]
Nothing in particular.

[Overall rating]
The absence of salvation sticks to my heart.
Even though I do not add bad-end favorite things, it's the best last.
Finally, it is painful to scratch the truth only to the heroine.

Murder case of a way to end it.
I will spot the boy of the perpetrator and draw a method of killing and a complete crime plan, but this is again realistic with maniac. It seems that we should not sympathize with the sorrowful doctrine of a boy who is too strong about thinking about someone, but there was a part that we sympathize with.
Especially since I am a high school student, "Yamagetsuki" and "Kokoro" and so forth come out, I feel more sense of life and strengthened the reality.
In peaceful high school life, I was suffering from being murderer only by myself, or repeated careless mistakes with perfect answers, and the terror of the main character was considerably transmitted and it was terrible ....

My sister is cute after that. Is it a sister like Garugee or anime or Lanoba?
It was a tragic circumstance, a brother-sister love, a sister with lots of shining elements. I wonder if Sone really came to see her, I do not know the neighborhood (too much hero's subjectivity is too much ...).
In the first place, the hero misunderstands the eyes of her in her Sone.
I wonder ... What is it ... Shuichi who committed murder to protect people, but that action is wasteful in many ways, and it makes me feel like I did not have to wake up murder, really.

It is the cause of minor actions of the hero who surrounds us and finally reveals our sins.
Shuichi thinking of a happy future if she could not make such a mistake is poorly poor and it can not be helped how many times his own murder was a dream.
"Sin and punishment" was being worked on in a while, but that was said such a novel. I read it at school's manga (I'm not a painter's fellow!).
Recently, "Cartoon" Death Note "is also such a theme.
Even if the other party is a scar of human beings, I think that the person is over at the time of killing.
Justice or evil is such a sad feeling.

By the way, there were scenes that were conscious of various things since I realized that Shuichi was not connected with my sister with blood, but after all there was nothing like my sister.
I like that little sister better than Noriko, so it's a bit sorry.

I have some autographs of the author, so my parents thought that I should read it next time.
Takashi san is also the "new world over" animation you are doing now ... it is also in the parent's room.
Let's borrow a bit for a winter break.

[good point]
After all it is easy to read

[Bad point]
Not particularly

[Comprehensive evaluation]

It is amazing.
I could understand the feelings of the hero very much.
He who is sacrificing himself to protect his family is stronger than anyone else.
Most of all I thought his friend was a pretty nice person.
Noriko 's last words had something to come.
it's the best.

Is it just a masterpiece human drama based on "homicide"?
As the protagonist of the murder was the protagonist, since I will think about the crime commitment with the reader in real time to advance the story from the criminal side from the beginning, I did not receive the impression of mystery.

Apart from committing a murder, I think that the thought circuit of the hero Shuichi is a very popular person, I think that it is easy to get empathy as whether it is human being or not. Not only is the target simply hateful, but a person closely related to the fundamental I have a thoughtful feeling.
So there is a real problem, everyone has the potential to get dirty like his.
However, if you do, it will predict various problems after the crime before you, but surely the fact beyond expectation turns out later, the unexpected psychological situation was born ...

I thought that it is a work that politely conveys it as to what kind of thing is "killing people" whom the other person is.

[Comprehensive evaluation]

After reading this, I was made a great idea. About good and evil that I had not thought before.
Especially the last person, Shuichi's dream, I was struck with a great heart.
Finally, I am particularly pessimistic at the end and I feel sorry ....
Many feelings were messed up and my feelings were heavy for about four days (Hirushi's book was already able to smoothly empathize as I became the main character.I am a mystery Kei Although it often goes well, the work that I could empathize with so much was a long time ago !!
I am glad that I found this work !!

Takashi's style is truly inspired by psychological expression and is easy to empathize.
Well this story, the common sense of the public? After all the main character should be ruined, including it, I was able to be frightened with the hero as to whether I am going to be a shadow of creeping creaking stuff.
In that sense, this may be called an underground adventure novel.
Although it is somewhat irritating to become somewhat sharp due to the composition of the story that it ruins after excitement in research and execution of means of the middle stage,
That's why the emphasis of the young protagonist's emphasis has become appropriate for the title.
And I felt that the part was refreshing and I was glad to read, after reading feeling which would otherwise be muddy.

I feel good that such a solitary fight, that I am carrying all of them alone, or such a painful feeling.

What remains in the impression is the conflict of the hero's heart. Despite being compromised, until departure to the murder, depiction of anguish since becoming a perpetrator was good.
It was a hero of a cool and mature feeling, but I like the feeling that people around my family and friends are protecting him. After all it is still a boy, even if I become a sumo wrestler, I think that my family could not be defended even after making the final decision.
It is very painful.

Also, although quite personal, I listened to music when I read a novel, and the song I listened to at the time of this novel was the best match. (Your song and LastSmile are songs ....)
About five years have passed since I read it, but when I listen to that song still, the scene of the novel comes up and makes me feel sad.

It is a unique and mysterious mystery (?) Novel.
There is considerable "weight" and "volume" in the contents, and reading is enough.
Because I think that it will spoil yourself when writing many, so it is completed.
You can understand Shuichi's idea well and can sympathize. But whatever the reason is, crime is useless.
I finally accomplished the crime successfully and I thought that a peaceful life would come at last ...
So the last way to tighten was quite good.
Everything is okay to say that everything is okay, I will assume that the evaluation is good.

From the conclusion it was really funny. However, it was good until the father killed but after that .... For Takashi Yusuke, I thought that development and depiction were childish. Still it will be painful that last. The movie is not interested. Especially cast.

It was good. While reading it unintentionally I was supporting the main character.
As you guys say psychological depiction is good ... ...
It was very nice until I killed my father but then ... ...
I could read the destination by all means.
I think that there is no way to end the last but it feels dark ... ...
It seems to be realistic and unrealistic ... ... [meaning unknown and suimasen]
I think that perfection as a work is a very wonderful work but I will make it "good" considering aftertaste and so on. In the future, it may raise the evaluation.

[There is spoiler]
〓〓〓I wonder if it is inevitable to do like this?

Because I remember it as a suspense, I thought that the main character's thought is separately known ... ....
Although the aftertaste is bad, I can not like the last harmonized too much,
Because there are many parts that you can sympathize with the main character, I will keep it as "ordinary".

It is too painful ...

Although I have not watched a movie, I definitely think I can not win the original.
This kindness is a novel, so it is a painful feeling as it is a sentence. Especially the last one thinks that the coolness and frostiness of this story has appeared well.

"With spoiler"
Basically the case is two.
Father killing, childhood friend familiar killing. Shuichi's coolness until the murder has reality?
Prepare for crime is calculated and just steps into the real crime area. But unexpected incidents (appearance of childhood friend) will gradually start the gear turbulence. But Shuichi never loses his cool.
This calm resulted in that painless last.
Everything is to protect your family. Also the motive for murder. And for the family, Shuichi picks the "cut steering wheel" option.

The contemporary era of killing young people. The modern era where meaningless murder is done. Meanwhile, it is not inevitable that a murderer like Shuichi Kushimori was born. Rather there will be no such person like him.
The reality in the novel changes to anti in reality. Perhaps the person Shuichi Kushimori may be the ideal murder image Yusuke Kishimoto wished for the present age.

(I will enter Choi neta)

Well, this work was interesting w The complete crime that the hero thought that it should not be able to get out first is a story that gradually collapses with a little thing. More specifically, before killing the father, we hardly explored the method of killing, finally accomplishing the crime, finally when the peaceful days can live, the story of the perfection that should start with confidence was born and the last is .... This is a story about the synopsis.
The depiction of the conflict of the hero's heart was also excellent, and the reason why the crime that was supposed to be perfect was destroyed is also Nakanaka good! Perfect crime is thought to be a mistake w And the last is also good! That way of perfection perfect It is a key point of yo. It is very good at the way that there is a lingering finish w
So, the evaluation is the best 〓〓〓5

The main character of the high school student Shuichi Kushimori attempts to kill a man named Sone who has suddenly entered for his family.
For that, I will devise a murder plan, but its details are very good to read.
Although the homicide appears to have been carried out successfully, collapse will occur due to the fact that friends can see the evidence of destruction. I think that it is somewhat unreasonable setting because there is a place which seems to be really a high school student in the way of drawing high school student Shuichi. The way to finish the last stop was nice.

I think that the psychological depiction of the hero is good! I think that there are not many people who want to get him to shoulder even though he is murderer.
It may be suitable for those in their teens. He was made me think about juvenile crime. It combines both inference and youth.

It is a work that I enjoyed very much that I do not see much print type usually.
Shuichi of the hero is a gentle young man who is longing for a long time, if he is the same family, he was able to sympathize with his psychology as well.
Although the murderous act itself can not be justified, in the case of Shuichi because he was forced to save his family, not for his own profit, he seems to be a knight acting to fulfill something rather than a sinner I felt it.
On the genre of this novel, it is unavoidable that a crime can not be carried out, but there was something that Shuichi's last term could not say at all.
But I think that this was the only way for everyone, including Shuichi, to become unhappy.
In a sense this is a youth novel, so I think everyone can enjoy it.

Although I thought that the method of drawing a story from the viewpoint of the criminal was funny inside,
I felt somewhat unsatisfactory as I looked as a full-fledged mystery.
Even if I look at it as a pure story, I feel that I am missing a bit.
It is a work that feels somewhat halfway.

A story that Shuichi of the hero attempts to eliminate the man who is about to stepping on the happiness with mother and sister with complete crime. I know that Shuichi is doing a crime, but I certainly had a desire to succeed in his perfect crime. I think that it was because I felt sorely about his kindness (although I can not say it definitely) from his way of thinking about my family to commit a murder, because I was struck by my heart. I was inadvertently drawn into Shuichi 's clever psychological description and development until committing sin.
... But it was until the middle that I was drawn into my eyes as much as I could. Is not it any short-circuiting anything like a second murder? Is it because I wanted to compare the delicate planned crime that I can not imagine 17 years old with, and the easy decisions appropriate for my age ... . I can not understand the real intention of this neighborhood, but I feel it was unlikely that there was no choice other than murder, and I felt like I had a shoulder watermark on the tense flow of that compelling somewhat. Besides, I felt that I could not fulfill anything rather than a pain in the last scene .... I just lost sight of the reality abruptly, only seemed to have made an impulsive and emotional decision.
I think that it is a very high level work if I read it as a youth novel, but I had some places to wonder, so I will say that the overall evaluation is "good".

Please be careful as there are spoilers.

In the beginning, the place where the hero tried to make an experiment or the like about a complete crime to kill his father was very interesting.
I thought that tricks and other things were pretty well done.
But though I thought that the strategy name was pretty childish with parenthesis of high school students.

The flow since actually committing was subtle.
As anticipated in the usual deployment that it finishes being broken off at the end like a common suspense at the end.
The second crime felt quite shallow.
I think it is very good composition of the sentences and the like, but there is almost no twist in the story, it hurts.

At the end, as Tota says, it is truly guilty ... but after all the hero was completely defeated,
Considering afterwards of the hero's mother, sister, friend, etc.,
Somehow aftertaste was bad.

There was something like a masterpiece impressed by the sentences behind the book, but I was not impressed almost separately.

If there is a little more twist and the aftertaste is good, it is "very good" attached ...
Well it was fun so it was "good."

Evaluation is good. The protagonist plans a plan to kill his father, but when thinking about plan, I think that psychological depiction such as hatred against father, planned execution is good. Well, it was disappointing that I became obstinate even though I had murdered my father for myself and my family. Besides, bad friends who were watching. I like the way the last way is finished because he was guilty or masculine. But, as there was nothing coming with impact and impact, I made the evaluation good.
