Garden is a collection of Furuya Usamaru's "indie" shorts that were published in Comic Cue, Manga Erotics and GARO. The title is obviously a reference to Hieronymus Bosch's famous triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights, with the first story being a homage to said painting. The other stories range from absurd comedies to fantasy and horror. It's a very eclectic mixture, but make no mistake: artistically, Garden might just be Furuya's most accomplished work after Marie no Kanaderu Ongaku.

This manga fits into the Ero Guro genre due to its explicit amount of nudity and gore throughout the chapters. This anthology has a mix of Fantasy and Horror, the stories stay consistent and enjoyable. Story 5 was easily the best due to the great characters and art it had, that one was very unique compared to the others. The art varies through each chapter but for the most part, it was very good. Some chapters had decent characters and others had well-written characters.

Overall I enjoyed this manga, if you are a fan of horror then definitely give this one a read. If you ...

Now, I wouldn't say I am anything of a avid fan of gory, horror themed, strange and overall weird indie manga. I don't go out of my way. Of course, I've read some here and there and it often leaves a bugs-crawling-on-my-spine feeling. They all lay a certain type of impression on the reader. Which is exactly what happened here for most of the short stories. I'm sure Furuya who illustrated the panels himself for himself also had a wild experience, seeing as he chose to draw the young girls in Emi-chan specifically finding it hard to stomach. I found this purely by chance and ...

Before anyone says "if you don't like it, go read something else", I want to clarify one thing. I love dark, surreal and violent manga. This work definitely didn't let me down on those three points. However, Garden falls short on several basic storytelling conventions that make a manga enjoyable to read.

The manga is drawn in an indie style; the art is good and the design is interesting - you keep wondering what kind of freaky creature will pop up next. This is Garden's strong side. The weaknesses become obvious very early on: there's no obvious logic or structure to the events that unfold. I ...
