Some ideologies and acts that go on are rather brief foundations.
And there isn't even development to be more of a psychedelic journey manga, which is pretty lazy to develop just the protagonist.

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 ...
