Loups=Garous Kihi Subeki Okami 2001 front cover

Loups=Garous Kihi Subeki Okami (ルー=ガルー 忌避すべき狼; Fr/Ja: Werewolves, Wolves Should Be Avoided) is a 2001 Japanese science fiction novel written by Kyogoku Natsuhiko. It has also been adapted into a manga in 2006 and an animated film, called Loups=Garous (ルー=ガルー), in 2010.


The story takes place in the near future after a pandemic has struck. Now, people only communicate through monitors and eat synthetic food. They live in a controlled society that is constantly monitored and in-person communication is limited. Children are only allowed to interact on school grounds, making them a target for a serial killer. The protagonist Makino Haduki, the shy Kono Ayumi, and the gifted Tsuduki Mio are determined to capture the criminal and overthrow the dystopian society. As the three girls get caught up in a whirlwind of events, Makino soon discovers that what they have known about the monitors is not what it seems.


An ongoing manga adaptation illustrated by Higuchi Akihiko was serialized by Tokuma Shoten. It was first published on September 19, 2006 in the magazine Gekkan COMIC Ryu and later published as separate volumes.
