Two short stories from Japan. On the first, an old man is in a tree surrounded by demons and faced with a desperate choice. On the second, a man has a pet that his wife is not thrilled about, so she makes that known. With scissors.

The creature is a sad cow! Or a vampire! Either way you probably don't want to hang out with it.
