Fran can make anyone into anything, raise the dead, switch heads and bodies and give you those eyes that you've always wanted. But do you actually want them? Is it a good thing to raise the dead? Do the ends justify the means? And does Fran care?

I think I've never come across manga like this. What drove me to Franken Fran was the fact that she looked like the perfect match for Dr. Stein from Soul Eater. "Stein can dissect, and Fran can put back together. Everybody wins." I just never thought it would be SOO specific, and... well.. bizarre. If you don't like VERY weird things, or unhappy endings, then this is not your kind of manga. Also, I may recommend you not to read this while you eat, is definably not a good idea.

I started this manga yesterday and read all 21 chapters of it. I ended up not being able to sleep without the light now. Actually, I the type of person who can't even stand to watch a horror movie let alone this. But somehow I did and quite enjoyed it. For many of the normal people out there who prefer main stream to all. This isn't the manga for you.

Story Line
Every chapter tells a different story. Either Fran goes to school, helps out dying people or preforms one of her crazy experiments. It's interesting and grabs my attention and after reading how gory things read more

They are both considered twisted. Both main characters seems to have a series of unfortunate events where ever they go. Also in both manga not all events have a happy ending and basically both Fran and Count D. really do mean well and want to make their customers happy.
Same mangaka; if you liked one, then you'll probably like the other. Plot-wise, they're significantly different but they have the same kind of feeling to it. Franken Fran is more mature and contains a lot of gore, whereas Helen ESP is more lighthearted.
