What the hell just happened I am confused. Why that violent rape scene had to be included is something I don't really understand.

Siguiendo con el arco del volumen anterior, este inicia con la realización de que es lo que causa el verdadero homúnculo en la niña no es el sexo, sino los cortes que se provoca ella misma en su talón.

Esto conlleva la liberación y recreación para encontrar su verdadero yo.

(ya sé...)

Also, Naoko continúa anexando partes de homúnculos liberados.

There are some graphic scenes (that continue into volume 6) but the Homunculus theme is developing in an interesting way...

Okay... It was amazing up to this volume and now I have to stop. There was a violent rape scene that went on for a while and I just couldn't stand it. I don't understand why the protagonist had to rape her to get her "true form" out of her homunculi form... Unfortunately I didn't find that part of the story necessary and I am going to stop reading this series.

Ah, a sequence where a teenage girl self-mutilates and drinks her own blood while a homeless man masturbates and tastes his own.. well you know. That's what I was missing in comics!

Also ends with the most confusing rape scene ever.

I'm not sure how I feel about this vol. still an amazing manga but I need to read vol. 6 to rap my head around what just happened! This girls' 'homunculus' is oddly intresting.
