This is the tale of a boy scorned by nearly every living creature imaginable.
Story, 6: A grim start that permeates the rest of the title. While there are glimpses of hope, the story is generally bleak and not for the faint of heart.
Art, 7: There are some grotesque body horror pieces, particularly using insect imagery, so those are worthy of note. The gore pages were sufficient.
Characters, 5: A one-note cast with few redeemable qualities; even the protagonist doesn't seem to have much depth outside of the early pages.
Enjoyment, 5: It was a short, one volume read but I don't feel like it was particularly
exciting or evocative.
Overall, 5: While this may be a decent title to check out for fans of older/horror manga, I think there are certainly others that deserve a look first.
