Rozen Maiden's Peach-Pit Ends Kugiko-Chan ga Iru! Manga
posted on by Karen Ressler
Peach-Pit debuted a two-part horror story titled Kugiko-san in Nakayoshi in August and September of 2011 before announcing that a full series would begin in December 2011. Kodansha published this series, Kugiko-Chan, in three compiled volumes.
The story of Kugiko-san revolves around the fear of Kugiko-san, an urban legend spread around children. According to rumors, people who encountered Kugiko-san have had nails (kugi) driven into their eyes. A solitary male shōjo manga creator named "P" follows the truth behind the urban legend.
In the "cute scary" manga Kugiko-Chan, an elementary school student named Tomo-chan summons the ghost Kugiko. She is initially afraid but they gradually become friends.
Kugiko-Chan ga Iru! takes place several years after Kugiko-Chan, when Kugiko transfers to a new school.
