Jigokusei Remina

One day, the world found out about newly discovered star, that was "eating" other stars. At first, it was so far away, that it became just a nice curiosity entertaining people in their normal daily lives. Then, it begun to come closer and closer, finally eating some of the solar system's planets and taking a straight course for Earth itself...

Hellstar Remina is a spectacular tale of ultimate and unavoidable destruction of humankind, that came unexpected and without humanity's own "help". It's also a solid overview of how people can't cope with their own most primitive instincts (blind revenge), even in the face of final doom.

Included one-shot: Okuman Bocchi (億万ぼっち, Army of One)

One cold morning, a missing couple resurfaces, floating dead in a lake, naked, and stitched together. Elsewhere, 19-year-old shut-in Michio is visited by his former classmate Natsuko, who invites him to an upcoming class reunion. Meanwhile, the murders start to rise, and the amount of people stitched together only grows in number. With this increase, the presence of a mysterious group known only as the "Army of One" grows more prevalent. As Michio starts to suspect that the Army of One could be behind the killings, he begins to fear that Natsuko may end up as a target.
