This is the story of a terrible crime committed against a 17-old-girl, committed, in part, by 17-year-old boys. Why did such a thing happen? Why was no one able to prevent it?

In the beginning, high school boys Hiroki and his friend Takashi are rescued from bullying by a notorious gangster, Miyamoto. At first, they are thrilled to be under his protection, and cheerfully run off anyone who threatens them with the mere mention of Miyamoto's name. Soon, they learn that there is a lot more to being in Miyamoto's gang than just being protected. In return, they're expected to offer loyalty and obedience, or face possibly deadly consequences. This becomes harder as the violence and the crimes they find themselves committing begins to escalate.

One night, they kidnap a high school girl, Sachiko. Now Hiroki has two battles to face. Internally, he faces the dissonance between his sense of self-preservation and his conscience. Externally, Sachiko's twin sister Miki, who goes to Hiroki's high school, her parents and the police are searching for the missing girl. Will Sachiko ever return home? What kind of person--or monster--will Hiroki become?

17-Sai. is a manga which is based off the real life gang-rape murder of Junko Furuta from the 1980's in Japan. It is about a girl who gets kidnapped walking home from school and is held against her will as a sex slave by a group of delinquents. Of course this is a very dramatic mature subject that many readers will not be able to take. There are very graphic scenes that show the girl being raped; I'm saying all this as a warning.

Even though the content of this manga is a horribly disgusting event, the manga itself feels like a tribute to the read more

Manga: Bradherley no Basha
Just a warning: for the MANY less manly men than me/those with empathy, these two will be hard to stomach. They are the only two series I have read - and will probably ever read - built around a premise of gang-rape. And not just rape: beatings and abuse so extreme that, at times, it enters the realm of torture. YE BE WARNED!

Bradherley is an episodic medieval fiction mini-series set somewhere in Europe where orphan girls think they have won the equivalent of the national lottery, get all excited/happy about leaving their orphanage, get taken somewhere... and I will leave the rest to  read more
