Saya no Uta (沙耶の唄, lit. Song of Saya) is a Lovecraftian horror visual novel by Nitroplus with erotic content. The original plot was written by Gen Urobuchi. In 2009, an English fan translation patch was released. Later, in 2013, JAST USA released an English localization using an improved version of the fan translation.
A three-issue comic book based on Saya no Uta, called Song of Saya, has been produced by IDW Publishing. The issues were released from February though April 2010.
A feature film adaptation is currently being developed by Sav! The World Productions.
Fuminori Sakisaka is a young medical student whose life changes when he is involved in a car accident along with his parents, killing them and wounding him. He wakes from an exaggerated form of agnosia that causes him to see the world as covered in gore and people as hideous monsters. As he contemplates suicide in the hospital, he meets Saya, who he sees as a beautiful young girl, but is in reality a horrific monster from another dimension whose appearance drives people mad. Due to their circumstances, the two become close and move in together, becoming lovers and incredibly dependent on one another.
Fuminori's cold attitude toward his friends (whom he also sees as hideous monsters) worries them. After Yoh, who has a crush on Fuminori, attempts to confess her feelings, her friend Omi goes to confront Fuminori—and promptly becomes food for Saya. It is with this incident that Fuminori unknowingly tastes human flesh, finding it delicious due to his warped senses. As Koji investigates Fuminori's strange actions, Saya visits Fuminori's neighbor, Yosuke, and changes his brain into the same as Fuminori's as an experiment. Yosuke, driven insane, kills his family and assaults Saya before being killed by Fuminori.
