Axe-shaped bookmarks? These practically screams: “KILL! KILL!”

2nd Axe-Slashing Incident Does Not Preempt Higurashi 

The 12th episode of Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Kai murder mystery anime aired on TV Tama in Japan’s Saitama Prefecture, Sun TV in Hyogo Prefecture, and Chiba TV in Chiba Prefecture on early Tuesday morning, despite the episode’s earlier preempting on two other stations due to an axe murder case – and despite the news reports of a second axe murder attempt.

The Moon Phase anime information website reports on an apparent recall by Square Enix of ax-shaped bookmarks, which were to be distributed in bookstores to promote one of the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni manga.

Ray’s take: uh…Axe shaped bookmarks. Nice. I’m looking forward to give these to my worse enemies as notices for slaughter gifts for a good laugh. For whatever reason the music from “Psycho” plays in my head when I read this news. Now if you’ll excuse me I think I’m going to start chewing on bird seeds…Now where’s that chef’s knife of mine? Mother? Oh God, Mother!

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
