The series is about an orphan girl named Midori, whom is taken in (enslaved) by a traveling freak show. The freak show includes such unsavory characters as a mummyman, a snake woman, and a drooling man with no limbs. The owner of the freak show, the eponymous Mr. Arashi, is a strict man who allows his freaks very little freedom or joy in life. He is especially cruel to Midori. Midori works, not as a freak since she is normal, but as a sort of caretaker of the freaks.

If you are sensitive to sex in art you might find the piece uncomfortable. The artwork is the selling point. Twisted and grotesque figures dance through a confusing timeline, while a young girl struggles to find refuge in a read more
