    Osamu Dazai's No Longer Human is a good read if you like suicidal existentialist novels (and you do). See also: Ryunosuke Akutagawa. The Spider's Thread is one of my favorite short stories, even if he did plagiarize it almost word for word from the theosophist Paul Carus' Karma: A Story of Buddhist Ethics.

    I read a few of Yukio Mishima's translated books, they were pretty good. Especially "Fatherland" and "On Hagakure" are both short and worth many a re-reading. It is claimed Japanese is the most difficult language to master. According to those that actually took the time, it certainly is rewarding if you are willing to spend 15+ years into learning it.

    But I wouldn't recommend it; since 1945, when a certain tribe occupied their nations, there is something cucked about Japanese and German, or at least 99.99% of everything written in these languages.
