Have you ever pitied someone with positive intentions, yet your actions had negative results?

Recchan, a high school girl with a monster face is popular among her classmates, yet what they believe is pity for her only ends in her disliking. The student council president however sees otherwise, finding jealousy and personal morals to differentiate her view on how to treat the girl with a monster face. Yet what others may see as a subjectively wrong view of the girl, refusing to care because of pity, only serves as a positive outcome.

Proving once again that Inio Asano is still adept at writing short, character-driven parables, over here he's basically written the updated version of Franz Kafka's the Metamorphosis for our Century.

I recognized so much of the modern society in this one-shot, the "strange person", who everyone thinks is strange but no one dares to say, because it would be not politically correct, so instead everyone pretends the strange person is special in order to not be labeled as an intolerant being.

I'm not a great admirer of Asano's work, but i must say this piece of work showed a lot of his improvement, the art it's simple but is somehow better than his other works, the storyline is satisfying (unlike some of his previous works), overall i must say no one who likes good manga would read more
