Beautiful people are loved and revered. They have everything they desire right at their fingertips... Even if that beauty is a complete illusion.

Before Kasane's mother died, she was given a special tube of lipstick from her mother. She was told that if times ever got really really hard, she should wear the lipstick and kiss whatever she really desires.

But is this keepsake a blessing? Or a curse?


Kasane has been digitally published in English by Kodansha Comics USA since May 30, 2017, in Spanish by Milky Way Ediciones since September 2016 and in German by Tokyopop since December 2016.

I dropped it after 5 chapters.
I couldn't quite take it all in.
This manga takes everything your insecurities ever echoed in your mind and put it in unapologetic print.
Took me like a week to forget it. Wish it had been sooner.
The art was ok but too too grotesque for Kasane which made it worse for me.
Kasane wasn't beautiful or average and only thinking that she was ugly, she was simply unattractive. This really brought out the ugly personalities of the other characters which made it wholly a negative experience.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
The premise is ok...it really is.

But it finally got interesting after 6 chapters.

Kasane is really gloomy and ugly. She is SO ugly that her face is almost caricatural and always shadowed. She even wears medic mask to hide her face. I really wished to see her 'normal' face, maybe by curiosity. The art in general was okay. The pretty people read more

After reading the other reviews I have to throw my two cents in; Kasane is amazing. If anyone's dealt with low confidence and lack of good relationships they know how hard life is and how hard it is to build yourself up. So if you got the chance to easily make your dreams come true, would you take it?

Kasane dives really deep into both taboo topics, and topics that are rarely talked about. These are for example "Is changing your looks to fit the standard society has set a good way of living? A worthy way of living?"
Also, the topic that is never talked read more
