The essential story is that of a looping death due to the lack in survival every time our main character spawns. We're not certain for sure if the character comes back to life or not, but his spirit cannot pass on without him triumphing over this unfortunate mishap.

We learn there are 3 other robbers after the lead character wins the struggle over the his 2 captives. Author Kano Yasuhiro knows how to use the 'unexpected' into situations that constrict mental stress. Although our lead is the only one that develops in a small amount of time, his character is obviously pitied upon and thus projects a bit of vindication upon the world he's in, knowing he'll never recover from this confrontation and even begging to go to hell, saying it's better than repeating his death over and over again.

Jean is the only character that matters to us in this series. We watch him die and spawn again pages later, thus pitying him for having to go the sentence of live torture never to rest in piece. Jean is a rich guy who took things for granted in a world we never experience, but having been told his history we feel his animosity towards his captives, and even against god.

Such feelings in Jean create a trusting sense in his own race. Anyone who's alive and not holding a weapon is obviously considered a friend. The only perceptive is that these bad guys are obviously envious thieves and nothing more, but that's not what the story is about, which is why the characters have no position even speaking in this One-shot.

Drawing Style
The 'Pretty Face' and more recently 'MxO' author has a magnificent flow in his penmanship. Each character isn't void of personal detail and varieties in clothing. To say 'each character' makes for an exaggerated prowess since there are very few characters in L∞P.

That slasher vibe is easily transmitted in this series. From the tied up victims to the killers themselves, we're driven by means of escaping this horrid situation and making them pay. A serious story that builds enough suspense despite it's short length.

A personal best for Kano Yasuhrio enveloping a new genre into his midst and collecting different traits to be included in what we hope become his next greatest piece. We'll be awaiting his masterpiece.
