What a masterpiece

Story: 10/10
This is a supreme masterpiece of a story, very similar to something Oshimi Shuuzou (Aku no Hana) would write. It is good to the point that I do not want to spoil anything for you. It is a story about rape, suffering, suicide, depression, romance and much more. It is a masterful balancing act between sadness and hope, much like that we see in real life.

Art: 10/10
Some masterpieces have bad art, some are art masterpieces with bad stories, Diffusion Disease manages somehow to be both. the art style in this is simply stunning, beautiful and it fits the story so well.

Overall (10/10) read more

A diffusion disease is the best take on life ive ever seen, only rivaled by punpun, but since its so criminally unknown i just had to review this masterpiece.

Story - 10/10
The story is amazingly written with phenomenal depth, the main theme its trying to get across is "we are oscillated' and escapism which is first symbolized when kaachan.... diffuses. the concept itself is very unique.

Art - 10/10
Easily one of, if not, my favorite artsyle of all time. each panel is drawn with highly detailed and realistic art. this manga could be a art book just on its own.

enjoyment - 10/10
i love everything about this manga, read more
