reincarnating as canine, he now lives with Kirihime Natsuno, a
beautiful, sadistic goth girl with a love of scissors who's really
his favorite author. Now between her, other authors, a masochistic
editor, his sister (who has a brother complex), his life now seems to
be surrounded by beautiful (but crazy) girls who can hear his
thoughts even thought he is now a dog. Too bad for the girls,
Kazuhito is more interested in their books. While Natsuno feels
somewhat responsible for Kazuhito's death, she secretly hides the
fact that she is also in love with him, but she expresses it to him
