Synopsis

The series is about an orphan girl named Midori, whom is taken in (enslaved) by a traveling freak show. The freak show includes such unsavory characters as a mummyman, a snake woman, and a drooling man with no limbs. The owner of the freak show, the eponymous Mr. Arashi, is a strict man who allows his freaks very little freedom or joy in life. He is especially cruel to Midori. Midori works, not as a freak since she is normal, but as a sort of caretaker of the freaks.

Amid the chaos of Maruo Suehiro's violent, traumatic & hypersexual tale lies a tragic & heartwrenching story, a complex and profound meaning .

Recently I checked the manga because I am fond of the author's art, purely for the aesthetic. Suehiro Maruo's surreal artistic skills and bizarre presentation never fail to amaze me.

The pillar of Suehiro Maruo's storytelling lies substantially in his visual portrayal. The distinctive nature of his craftsmanship is primarily surreal & absurd artistry. Understanding the importance of the ...

1. You like to explore weird stuff

2. If you like ero guro.

There is nothing else here, absolutely nothing. It is a weird, revolting, and horrifying story that hooks you in till the end. It left me traumatized, but man do I want to read more of this mangaka. Personally, I like exploring the works of controversial figures, so I'll definitely check out his other work.

Before you decide on reading this manga, just be aware of some triggers that are present within the story:

1. There is a r*pe scene (the chapter ends before the reader can see anything but, I feel it is important to know).
2. In almost all the chapters, one can clearly see acts of gro*ming and ped*philia.
3. It is very gory from the beginning.
At the end of the day, it is a horror manga, however, still, take this into consideration before going into it!

Story-wise, if you ...
