Confidential Confessions is a series of stand alone stories that deal with suicide, rape, drug abuse, sexual abuse, prostitution and other serious issues. Volume Three has two stories.

The third volume of CONFIDENTIAL CONFESSIONS contains two stories: "Dizziness," a tale about the raise and fall of a meth addict, and "Our Future," a short story about a girl who dates a boxer.

"Dizziness" takes up most of the volume, and it's probably the quintessential story anyone thinks of when they think of CONFIDENTIAL CONFESSIONS.

It begins with a shy girl, Kyoko, who's insecure about her body and having a hard time passing her classes. All and all, her life's not so bad-- aside from her s

I'm just going to leave one big review for the whole series rather than writing them individually. It's been years since I read them. But I remember them quite well. This is one of my favorite series I've ever read. And warning a head of time, its a pretty dark one. So if you can't handle stories about drugs, prostitution, rape, suicide, etc.. then stay away. This series brings to light some of the struggles teens today face, and some adults. Not all the stories have a happy ending. But they do ...more

Reiko Momochi, Confidential Confessions, vol. 3(Tokyopop, 2001)

Momochi carries on with (arguably) the most controversial series in manga with volume 3, the bulk of which deals with a girl who, in an effort to get her grades up to her strict father's standards, starts taking meth. As usual with the series, the storyline is predictable as all get-out and the ending is sappy, but the characters are well-drawn and it's at least readable. Ends with an odd short about a boxer on the rise, an aspiring

Confidential Confessions is not always easy to read, especially because not all of the endings are happy ones. But that is what made this manga more real. This one talks about drug abuse and why some kids start on drugs. In Japan, the school system is strict and high-pressure, and when your parents add to it, it only makes the situation worse, making drugs seem like a lovely refuge.

This series deals with various controversial subjects that young women are dealing with in today's society. For the most part they are tackled well.
