Summary of Boku no Kokoro no Yabai Yatsu
Kyoutaro Ichikawa may look like your typical high school student, but in his heart he dreams of murder. So it’s no surprise that the person he wants to kill the most isn’t far from his mind: class idol Anna Yamada. Reading alone in the library of his beloved school, he accidentally starts running into Yamada, who comes to secretly hurt himself on his beloved candies and sweets. Through their interactions, Ichikawa learns how foolish Yamada is, and he can’t help but support her from the sidelines. Meanwhile, Yamada herself can’t help laughing at Ichikawa endlessly because of his giddy reactions. Through a series of heartfelt daily interactions, distance becomes more than just library acquaintances. Perhaps, in time, Ichikawa will realize that her murderous desires have turned into something else entirely.
