Wow I haven't been impressed with a new manga in ages! I got this one as part of a job lot and was pleasantly surprised as it was easily the best volume in the bunch.

Its seven, sting-in-the-tail type short stories at heart about the nature of the human condition. It reminded me a little of the wonderful 'Twisted Dark' graphic novels.

Recommends it for: fans of mihara ad goth-loli

Okay. So sue me. I actually liked this, despite it being so typical of Mihara, I think it's one of the goth-loli princess' best works. Lots of stuff typical for this genre of horror manga: sad androids, abused clones, pedophiles, frog innards... If you overlook some of the more campy stuff and lean back and enjoy the android fellatio, it makes for a good read. I particularly liked the last story with the clone boy. The plot twists are kind of cool. -_-;

I really like Doll and the Embalmer, but this is a bit much for me. Just a bit too dark, a bit too sexual and a bit too morbid.
