The sequel to Jisei arrives!
A teenager with the ability to relive the death of any corpse he
touches finds himself tangled in another murder case when the owner of
a high profile corporation dies under mysterious circumstances. This

sleep. (though as a note: my girlfriend said it was 4)
Yeah, that's false people. Really? You think that is true?
Spiders are poisonous, you'd hear about people dying from that a lot
more often if it were true! Sure not every spider is going to kill you,
but there are no shortage of ones that will if you eat them.
So what are your favorite internet myths? Let's bust em!
