“I dislike all you people.”
“That is your crime,”… replied the short judge .”

This is an odd, a bit grotesque, dark, yet interesting, solid mind-provoking manga. Its aftertaste was one of those that I couldn’t forget so easily.

character (2/10) : uuuh??? all i can tell is that they're all mentally ill. is the main character supposed to represent an emotion? humans in general? life? i ...
