It does not matter where you come from or who you are, at some point you have had romantic feelings for another human being. It is natural and completely fine. That is, of course, unless you follow them home, collect their items, and watch them for extended periods of time without their knowledge.
While this already seems scary enough, imagine following your, er, crush and then finding out they are actually a violent psychopath who breaks your leg and kidnaps you.
WELCOME TO KILLING STALKING!
Yes, in this story not only is the main character a creepy stalker and the antagonist cruel and insane BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Now accept the fact that they fall for each other and become lovers. I am in no way joking about this either; this is the legit plot of Killing Stalking.
Every page is one uncomfortable situation after the next as the main character struggles desperately to find out what his kidnapper wants from him in order to try to not receive pain and torment. My heart pounded watching him find opportunities to escape with doors literally unlocked, and he has to decide whether or not to risk the attempt.
You watch as Stockholm syndrome sets in for the main character where his life of imprisonment and the chaos of punishments that come with it become every day life. The entire experience is a mix of horror and fascination as you can not help but keep turning pages despite being uncomfortable.
I do want to mention that their romance is of a very sexual nature and is often intense. You may want to read this in the comfort of your own home, away from your peers, unless your peers happen to also be fans of Killing Stalking, then consume it as fast as possible!
I was offered an extended look at the story by Lezhin Comics! You can check out the first six chapters there, and then pay for additional content. I do recommend this to any reader who loves psychological thrillers and don’t mind some anime boy lust every so often.
