This is most twisted love story that I ever seen. And one of the best horror/gorn stories. Urobuchi Gen deserves his reputation, indeed. Pictures are decent, music is fine and fitting. What is above average is concept and scenario.
Saya no Uta have three endings and is rare example of plot with porn. You can cut out every hentai scene and guess what left – enthralling, dark, horrific story about very unlucky guy (soon-to-be psycho) that see world in literal gore-vision. And someone did exactly that, uploading to Youtube entire novel with this kind of censorship (here is first part). Enjoy!
This tale is so good that I am actually willing to overlook certain story disrepancies. This is not criticism – any and every story can and will have holes and problems. What is different is willingness to suspending one disbelief and just enjoy story.
Thus… so what that Fuminori’s clothing should be gorified like everything else? Don’t wonder also what he would see in mirror or looking down. Also, don’t worry about strange unwillingness for anyone to call police or do something not suicidal. If you press these kind of issues, this would happen:
*Fuminori in hospital starts to see again first time since accident, looks at his hand* Oh my God what it is?! White-pink tentacle with five disgusiting squirming appendages…!! Must cut it off with my other – AAAAHHHH FUCKING JESUS KILL ME NOW!!! *goes irrevesibly insane*
End of story. Do you want this to happen?
