Hostel the manga but way worse !

I sadly read the manga years ago but it somehow made the rounds recently and well here is my belated takedown of it. The art is good as always that does not matter as the story stared of on weak legs and very fast killed itself as it only features pedophilia, (gang)rape, suffering, medical experiments and every other deranged thing under the sun without any context or purpose. I can remember no characters but only corpses with some basic character motivations. This is the definition of bad writing at it´s finest. Why did Hiroaki write this ?
Because he love drawing suffering and a manga by him without expensive sexual violence to women barely exists. Worst of all he does real Ero-Guro as seen in Brute Love. I am only pointing something out here so do not read or suffer the consequences. We can talk about comfort women, child prostitution and sexual slavery all day long but this manga is based on nothing and historically wildly inaccurate in the vision of the society and the time in question. The author himself admits in the afterword that he wanted to do a version of Anne of Green Gables with lot´s of sex and gore. Phenomenal ! The only difference between this manga and his Ero-Guro work is that this "work" features more dialogued. That is all. The deeply imperfect but still good Mugen no Juunin may forever remain his only manga i can recommend and street trash like this is the reason why. For a historically accurate portrait of hell on earth that wont make you look at gore-porn watch the award-winning movie City of Life and Death(9/10) or read Vertigo´s Unknown Soldier(10/10) but beware these are 18+ too but for the rigth reasons.

It was rough...but still stomachable. I like the fact that the author didn't sugar coat the atrocity of this, he hit us right at the beginning and it still leave quite an impression.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The metaphor of the lamb is really poignant, probably the hardest part of this story.
I liked the chapter with the prisoners. In this messed up situation, some people still have empathy even if the persons in charge have to bury it deep inside, it is sad

The author deliver a really captivating story, a story that is relevant to the modern day. Even today, many children are under worst circonstancies and not only in war-torn countries.

In modern society we see disturbing news presented everyday. There comes a point when these everyday occurence becomes a part of life, and we become desensitised. Reading Bradherley no Basha left me feeling bereft, as if I should have felt more strongly, more disgust. Maybe it was because each chapter consisted of an individual persons story there wasnt enough details given to feel an emotional attachment to the characters, or maybe it's because reviewers expectations hiked up my expectations. Or maybe it's just me. Anyhow, give this one a go if you want to add another reason why humanity is doomed. Have fun

One thing that needs to be straightened out here is that while this may be based on real life/war, it's much more exaggerated. Sure, comfort women were raped many times, but all the torture? No way. Perhaps very rare real life cases may mirror this, but those are one in a billion, maybe even more. So you can stop fantasizing, guys.

should i ever meet mr.samura,i would give him a hug and thank him for all his wonderful works...
and then proceed to shake the crap out of him while screaming,"what is wrong with you?!"
just kidding.
this story is told in a way that while being very depressing,it manages to wrap its unyielding dreariness with just enough hope that you hold one til the very end.
which is really just the continuation of hell.
damn that mangaka is good.

This is the tale of the karma houdini redefined. Beware- it can induce high blood pressure and largely unneeded amounts of hatred for imaginary beings resembling humans. If you ever wanted to experience such emotional wreakage, you'd have to visit a third-world country.

Read it if you ever have to know how cruel people can be.

it is a depressing manga, because it is too close to reality. i'm sure similar things happen in war-torn area even in 21st century. the beautiful art really capture the ugliness of the human heart here. there is slight 'justice' at the end of the manga, but how can you ever atone for directly destroying several children? how can you atone for making a large number of people also monsters and demons by helping and abetting this cruelty, whether they like it or not? i'm an atheist but it make me really want to believe in hell just knowing they will pay for their sins hundredfold.

this manga can inspire very ugly feelings in you. it make you want to do good deeds to balance out all the sufferings the lost girls endure. a really remarkable feat for a one volume manga.

it's a collection of stories around the same idea, and all of it was bleak... not one trace of happiness! although i didn't mind, i liked the tragedy and horror surrounding it; it was interesting, and terrifically horrific. like others said, what makes it worse (or better??) is that it's very realistic, and the plot is reminiscent of things past. except maybe a little more violent haha...

it keeps you wondering what's going to happen next, and keep reading to find justice.

ps, this is really not THAT graphic - it doesn't show everything going on, and the "sinister fate" - just kinda hints at it and shows the after effects. i was expecting a lot worse, and i lot more actual horror. it's more psychological horror for the readers IMO.

It took me a while before I had the guts to read this. The summary and some (or most?) of the reviews made me want to stay the hell away from this manga. But I'm glad I decided to finally read it. The first few chapters were quite shocking - especially to those not used to reading stuff that had graphic sexual abuse and violence - but when I read up on comfort women after chapter 2, I thought, this doesn't even come close to the nightmare of what happened to real women in WWII. I realized that there is nothing gratuitous about the art and themes in the stories. It was necessary, and it was tastefully done (believe me). I wouldn't recommend this to people who can't stand the themes for one reason or another - but for those who want to read this but are hesitant, give this manga a chance. The storytelling and the art is superb. It's worth it.

I'm really into tragic disturbing stories but this was the only time in my life when I was really SCARED to turn the page. You know, the most dreadful thing in this manga that the story looks absolutely realistic (considering what did the Fascists do during the 2WW), so I couldn't just forget it telling myself: ough, just another Japanese horror fantasy.
and the art, it was absolutely unique and beautiful.
