Seiichi Osabe is an only child living a mundane life. Just like any middle schooler, he has friends, a crush on a girl, and loving parents. However, Seiichi's mother is extremely overprotective, which causes others to view him as a mama's boy.

Although he doesn't consider her behavior to be unusual, a certain incident starts to open his eyes to just how dangerous her affection is. As Seiichi tries to break free from her grasp, he learns that his life isn't as normal as he thought.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

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 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.

This is top tier manga horror that I think you'll love if the subjects of manipulation and moral decay are in your wheelhouse.

I recommend reading this alongside your favorite horror movie ...

Preliminary (20/? chp)
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.
