Heijoushin Posted March 27, 2016 Share Posted March 27, 2016 Just read the first book of a manga series called ikigami. The plot is this: In future Japan, everyone is injected with a special vaccine when they enter elementary school. Somewhere around the age of 20, 1 in 1000 people who received this vaccine will die. The idea is that if the threat of potential death is hanging over you, you'll appreciate your life more (many philosophies agree with this idea, YOLO) For those 1 in 1000, a slip of paper is delivered to them 24 hours before they die (this paper is called an ikigami 逝き紙). Thus, they have a final 24 hours to live. If they commit any crimes during that time, their remaining family will be penalized. Sorry for the long-winded intro. Here's the point of this thread: You get your ikigami, you have 24 hours left to live. What would you do with it? 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
