The beautiful, long-haired Chiemi Amano has just been dumped by her playboy boyfriend, leaving her utterly dejected. Returning home, she begins to recall fond memories, such as how she grew her hair out for him. But now, these once pleasant recollections only further her depression, leading her to decide that cutting off her hair can free her from the heartbreak. However, she finds that doing so is no longer a decision she can make...

Yurushi (Approval/Permission)
Again and again, Kyousuke has been trying to get permission to marry his love Misuzu. Yet no matter how many times he asks her father, he is repeatedly denied due to his low social standing. After countless months, Kyousuke finally gives up and breaks things off with Misuzu. Only later does she come to him and plead for him to return. But strange events have unfolded while Kyousuke was absent, and he may not be prepared for the truth that faces him.

Hachi no Su (Beehive)
Takano is an adamant fan of bees and makes beehive collecting a hobby of his. His only rival in the neighbourhood is a strange, unkempt boy, who handles bees as if he were one of them. But one day, the boy goes missing, and rumours circulate that his ghost is haunting the woods. When Takano spots a rare hornet, he sets off towards the woods to chase it, where the truth of the boy's disappearance will be unveiled...

Hakumei (Dying Young)
Ayako and her friends Chizuru and Hiroko belong to a group deemed "The Ugly Trio" due to their less-than-stellar looks. That is until Chizuru mysteriously starts to undergo a slow transformation, becoming prettier and prettier by the day. However, the prettier she gets, the less healthy she becomes, and soon —after becoming a lovely beauty—Chizuru collapses and dies. This event sets the precedent of what's to come, as slowly more and more girls start to become prettier...

Kubi no Nai Choukoku (Headless Sculptures)
Though friends Shimada and Rumi regularly walk home together, Rumi finds herself going alone one day when Shimada stays behind to help Mr. Okabe. An art teacher dedicated to crafting headless sculptures, Mr. Okabe enlists Shimada's help to meet the deadline for his next exhibition. But when Rumi goes to pick up Shimada the next day, he oddly refuses and stays home. At school, Rumi is met with shocking news: Mr. Okabe has been gruesomely decapitated, and his head is still missing. When Rumi tries to question Shimada for information, he tells her to follow him to the art room, within which the truth lies.

Niku-iro no Kai (Flesh-Colored Horror)
Walking home alone one night, kindergarten teacher Momoko Takigawa is assaulted by a shadowy figure who throws a sticky substance onto her. Hard enough to get off her skin, Momoko is left with no choice but to cut her hair short to remove it. Back at school, Momoko has a tough time handling her problem student, Chikara—a boy who stands out for his rough skin and violent fixation on peeling whatever's around him. Momoko decides that visiting Chikara's home for counsel may help. But in this attempt to remedy Chikara's issues, Momoko finds herself coming into contact with her mysterious attacker once more.

Driven by the sight of a wasteland in the reviews section, a novice reviewer has decided to make a (terrible) review on this nice piece of manga!

Story 8 - Flesh Colored Horror is a collection of stories, each chapter having a different story to tell. I personally thought the first and last stories were very creepy if not scary. For the age of this manga, this is very good. And it tells the story at a reasonable pace, first starting with the build up then ends at the climax point or a little after. Each story will keep you interested and refresh the horror. read more

I've read some work of Junji Ito but i was not ready for the last chapter of this. It was the creepiest thing I've ever read from him and I loved it, definitely something no one could anticipate.Loved it, surely worth reading it.

Story 8 - Pretty solid plot without any weird plot holes and keeps you glued throughout the whole chapter on the edge of your seat.

Art 8 - Junji Ito's style is really blooming since he's early works, and can fully capture the horror of the stories.

Character 7 - Well the characters stay the same ain't much to do here.
