The illusion of that person leads me astray. Mother and son. This is the ultimate favoritism.

Remembering suspense movies, Chi no Wadachi is an experience that makes you chew your nails through the next chapter. The story begins with a slow pace, making you wonder what's really going to happen, until the psychotic mother makes her first move, from there you'll clutter once in the story of the shy teenager with an insane mother, worry about what she can do with the other characters who get envolved with the protagonist and feel bad for his own life.

The art follows the pattern of the author, which fits very well with the genre. From the same creator of Aku in Hana and read more

Here's my take after reading the 16 chapters of Shuuzou Oshimi's Chi no Wadachi (A Trail of Blood).

The story centers around the mother Seiko Osabe's uncanny "Over Protectiveness" towards her son Seiichi Osabe which leads to Seiko slowly being broken and unhinged in the process.

This manga will swallow your perception of motherly love, make you experience conflicting emotions, and will shock you in the most unsettling ways.

The characterization of the characters and setup of the story is well established at the beginning of the story which makes getting to chapter 1 to the latest chapter surprisingly easy.

The art compliments the ambiance of the story, read more

This manga I'd recommend to anyone who likes more of a psychological, morbid approach. It's art on it's own self as it makes you feel the suspense and the insecurity of the main character with the pacing and the the thought out scenes.

Story: 8/10 The story itself is interesting and fairly original for a manga. It centers around an insecure boy and a psychotic mother who causes... hmm.. a lot of harm in a lot of different ways. To the boy and the family in general

Art 9/10 the art is pleasing to look at. Not the classic style yet very neat and to the point. read more

This resonates with me on so many levels. I have my mental disorder, diagnosed, worked on, and is getting better. Thus I know how wrenching it is to live with, to grow up with, and to be able to tear away from a narcissist, clingy, possessive and manipulative mother.

Yes, the Fukuushi girl might be crazy, but her type of craziness might give the son a healthier, balanced taste of a life.

Yes yes yes, this is indeed a nice tour guide (of sort) for people whose life has been burdened with the mixture of love, belonging, selfishness and misguide from mothers.
