Warning - This manga is very graphic. It is not for the faint of heart
This manga contains the following: Torture, Rape, Blood and Gore, Violence, Full Nudity, Adult Themes, and Adult Language. Recommended Audience: Anybody able to handle the things listed, so probably 18+ or in late teens.
This manga takes most of it's stories from actual crimes that happened, which makes it all the more disturbing. Each story is rather short, this manga being only 10 chapters, but it gets to the point rather quick, and its blunt about what it is trying to tell you. The stories take up to 3 chapters
each, and when they are done, they leave you with a general feeling of disgust and feeling sorry for the characters,wishing that you could have helped some way. The author jumps right into each story and provides little backlog on what has happened, but these stories really don't need one.
The art in this manga is amazing. Everything is detailed, from the character's skin to the blood and gore falling out of them. I can't express how well the blood and gore was drawn. Extremely realistic, and sometimes vomit-educing (which is a good thing). Each character is unique and seems to have a personality of their own, and are drawn as such.
All the characters are designed very well and each have their own circumstances to which they are being punished for, fair or not. The pregnant lady persona is used twice in this series, and to quite avail, wrenching disgust in you like none other. Each character is well designed and I generally liked the way they looked.
Enjoyment/Overall 10/10, 10/10
I really enjoyed this series and I plan to probably read it again. I highly recommend this to anybody who is looking to be disgusted and otherwise if you are not , or you do not have a strong stomach, do not read this manga, you will probably vomit.
I usually like and enjoy pretty much ero guro mangas, understanding the level of disturbance they may cause to almost every human being with straight mind.
One of the main reasons I like them is because of the black humor. And I don't have any problems with the cruelty those histories show, exactly because they are just "stories", fictional artwork created with various proposes.
This manga right here, is (mostly) based on real facts, wich is at the same time the reason why it's a masterpiece, and the reason why it's a horrible history.
While reading this, I wasn't laughing ot enjoying the explicit grotesque images (wich
I usually find very """beautiful"""), I was feeling sick and angry knowing that these were based in real people who suffered this atrocities in our world.
I may have some fucked up tastes (and at the same time some more common ones), but I can perfectly distinguis between fiction and real life, being this the reason why I didn't feel well while reading this.
And exactly because I felt bad with this manga is why it is a masterpiece, because this was it's goal all along, because the manga itself warns you and tells you that it's purpose is to make you feel angry and to know that it's not the same to think something and to do it.
So, this is my final message to those who read this review: only read this manga if you are a masoquist who wants to suffer emotional shocks while losing even more fate in humankind than what already has lost during his journey around the internet.
Hands down one of the most appalling and disgusting things I've ever seen I almost can't come to terms with what I just read. I literally couldn't read anymore and almost threw up. Not only is this true (mostly) but I find it horrific that this would even be drawn and sold to the public.
It's disrespectful to the victims who suffered through those atrocities and their families. I've lost all faith in humanity and I'm convinced God is dead or at least doesn't give a rats ass about any of us after reading this.
I hope everyone who had a hand in making this gets
what they deserve.
