Happy Halloween! I have a special spooky treat for you all, a You Will Hear the Voice of the Dead oneshot! This was published in Champion Red recently in celebration of the magazine’s 20th anniversary. And what’s more, there’s a blurb at the end of the chapter promising more Voice of the Dead content in the future, too, which of course I will be translating whenever it comes out. I’ve also got another oneshot coming up, a sequel to The Suspicious Visitor, which I posted last year.

Summary: Sickly Kishida Jun has the ability to see ghosts, but in his opinion, it’s a stupid power and nothing good ever comes of it. Considering the number of grisly situations he seems to find himself in after the ghost of his childhood friend Hayakawa Ryoko starts following him around, he may have a point.
Oneshot Summary: Shikino drags Kishida and Koizumi into investigating the mystery of why in the school’s twenty-year history, has the principal always disappeared immediately after being hired.
