But her weight loss doesn't stop there, and she grows thinner and thinner...until she is nothing but skin and bone. Other stories include the slug girl's revenge, the secret sister that Ms. Numata hides from the world, the red satchel that mysteriously turns up at school, and Caterpillar, the nickname given to Mayuko because of her love of the creatures.

Skin and Bone reads like an R.L. Stine book, mostly involves schoolchildren, and is one of the goriest manga I've read with such simple character designs. In yet another compilation of short stories, Hideshi Hino continues to prove his mastery of simple but disturbing horror stories. I'm not sure whether or not his intended audience was children, but it wouldn't surprise me.

The individual short stories were fairly good, or as decent as one can be in 30 pages.Traditional "ghost story" plots, girl gets killed or tormented, comes back to haunt and kill classmates, but they move you quickly to the end of the manga. read more
