Horror October Reveal 10/24: I Want to Hold Aono-kun so Badly I Could Die

“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” 

Just as ol' Lovecraft would have wanted, for our month-long Horror October Reveal we here at Kodansha Comics fully intend to bring you that fear of the unknown—of unknown new digital manga licenses, that is!

All month long we will terrify you each Tuesday by revealing a new horror manga series available at all of our digital retail partners: BookWalker, comiXology, Crunchyroll, Google Play, iBooks, Kindle, Kobo, and nook!

Debuting on October 24, we've got Umi Shiina's haunting—and somehow bittersweet and funny—love story I Want to Hold Aono-kun so Badly I Could Die

Summary I would die if it would allow me to touch you. That is my love. Airhead Yuri-chan and her boyfriend Aono-kun had a perfectly normal relationship until one day Aono-kun suddenly “passed away” … They will never be bound together, and they cannot even touch. This is their difficult and almost too sincere love story. Read all of the haunting Chapter 1 right here:

Check back on Halloween Day next Tuesday October 31 for the final reveal!
