However I find my equilibrium restored by reading Deimos no Hanayome, vol 9 of the collected edition. Classic shoujo. Fun, now we're well past Deimos' stalker's idiocy about the schoolgirl who's the reincarnation of his sister(!) Venus(!) and into the horror stories where he gently propels people into homicide and arson and stuff like that. (My mood is also helped by reading the inserted chirashi and its lists of Bonita titles. There is no end to the making of shoujo and all is for the best in this best of all possible worlds.)
