*** 1/2 (out of five)

Kai Hara’s quest to save his twin sister from enslavement by a demon lord has just taken an even weirder twist.
If that’s possible.
He’s arrived in Tokyo on the hunch that his sister could be there, only to quickly find himself wandering into one of the most bizarre concepts in Japanese culture: Terakuras, or phone sex clubs, where men go to meet teenage girls for chats, dates and more.
And when a dead girl is found in a terakura he’s visiting, Kai finds himself on the run with two local girls and quickly learning the ins and outs, if you’ll pardon the pun, of the phone sex clubs.
Writer Mike Carey, with help by artist Eric Nguyen, takes his wonderfully edgy new series and pushes it a little further out there.
