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 output 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, forcing them to take an irreversible step which shatters her world forever. Now utterly devastated, a burning ferocity begins to swell within Nozaki, one which her bullies can only hope to escape from.

Mixed Feelings
I changed my mind a lot of times while reading this manga.

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 ...

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, ...

Among stories that have left an impression so deep that I can say they've affected my perspective on something and that I constantly carry around with me there's an oddity, Misumisou. The reason for that is honestly really ordinary, it's short. That's it. But, it's surprising what can be achieved with only 22 chapters. But enough of beating around the bush. It would be funny if my review ended up longer than the manga itself is. Maybe it's actually a legitimate possibility considering that the notes I took 2.1k words worth of notes while rereading for this review.

This is a review that I've ...
