For Haruka Nozaki, moving from Tokyo to the small town of Ootsuuma was life-changing—but not in a good way. Half a year later, Nozaki is miserable; she is relentlessly bullied by her classmates, who use her as an outlet for their pent-up rage and frustration. Though she could, Nozaki does not retaliate nor tell her parents, as she does not want to worry them. With this mentality, she is prepared to endure until graduation.

But when her bullies put her through a particularly harrowing ordeal, her parents become aware of the situation and allow Nozaki to stop attending school. However, this only instigates the bullies, leading them to take an irreversible step which shatters her world forever. Now utterly devastated, Nozaki feels a burning ferocity swell inside her, one which her bullies can only hope to escape from.

This manga definitely isn't for everyone, as it is very often misinterpreted and trivialized. Many mention being lost in the manga, calling the bullies "lunatics" and "insane". Through all manga of Rensuke Oshikiri I've read, no character has been inherently bad, mentally ill nor plainly evil. There has always been a cause, and it is the point of the manga and a common theme occuring in his works - abuse breeds abuse.

Very heavy with a painful message, it requires more from you than passive reading. It is not to be read for enjoyment. I've started reading Misumisou as I've looked for series similar to Higurashi, ...

At first, I thought it was just a simplistic revenge manga. Then I thought it was a revenge manga with a shallow story. Then I thought it was a story that tries to get a creepy feeling under your skin. Then I thought it was a rather creepy story that shows off a lot of strange and previously unthinkable things. Then I thought…

Well, you get the idea.

The further I read, the creepier it gets. At its core, I still see it as mostly a simple revenge story, but the author sure takes care to ...

Revenge tragedies have proved incredibly popular throughout the ages. Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' is still studied in institutions all over the world while 'Berserk' is one of the best selling manga series of all time. 'Assassin's Creed 2' is one of the most critically acclaimed video games of the 21st century while 'Gladiator' is among the most memorable live-action films of the 2000s. Good revenge stories are filled with captivating characters, intrigue and the potential to elicit an emotional response from the viewer. Rensuke Oshikiri's 'Misumisou' fails to achieve any of this and then some. It is truly one of the worst pieces of fiction I have ...
