Description
The Caterpillar is an adaptation of the 1929 Edogawa Rampo short story of the same name. The Caterpillar is a haunting psychosexual tale of Lt. Sunaga, a disfigured and limbless veteran of WWI who returns home to his young and beautiful wife. Sunaga initially is given a hero's welcome, but is quickly forgotten and shunned because of his injuries. Unable to speak or care for himself, he is completely at the mercy of his wife as she grows to loathe and toy with him.

I actually cried in the end of the story). It's so strange, how guro manga can invoke some poignant feelings ^-^ But it's still guro, be aware! It's like hentai + something sickening/disgusting + something psychological, even romantic.
I'm not giving it 9/10 among all the manga, only guro manga ^-^

The only good thing here is the art. It's very detailed and he's gotten better.

The story was either bad to begin with or Maruo can't do anything other than guro of which there is none. The wife was stupid, nothing made much sense and I was happy at the ending because I was wishing for him to do that from the very beginning.
