When it comes to the genre of ero guro, Hell Season is one of its most extreme entries. This anthology collects short stories from some of the genre's most notable mangaka - Shintaro Kago, Uziga Waita and Jun Hayami - alongside more obscure ones; the only glaring omission here is any works of Suehiro Maruo. It also includes a few pages of bonus art by more underground artists. But as an introduction to the genre, it's probably the best; There's a wide variety of content here, but be warned - it's not for the weak of stomach. I mean, just about every taboo you can read more

Once he leaves school, the world-building really expands and we get read more

Well, that was weird. “Bride in Front of the Station” or “Ekimae Hanayome” is a collection of short stories by Shintaro Kago. Most of them center around modifying the human body in some strange way, like replacing certain parts with faucets, or being able to detach your parts as drawers, like from a cabinet. Unsurprisingly, for an author such as Kago, he explores these ideas with lots of sex and some violence, and the scenarios he invents are admittedly creative, gross and sometimes funny, but from what I’ve seen, this is probably the tamest work of his.

Some stories end in poetic irony and a few read more
