Description
Yumiko Kawahara's disturbing short stories explore the strange and codependent world of dolls and the people who own them.

These cautionary tales must come from some desire to teach people a lesson, for in each one there is a horrible outcome when the doll enters their homes.

Just like Silvermoon424 had said, there are various stories. Funny, heartwarming, lovely, a lil scary, and some in a so very heartwrenching way...

For me, the one I really like the most is "Snow White pt. 2"... Sad, heartwrenching, to the point even when it's one the shortest stories, it's truly embedded in my mind... And when I read it again, I still experiencing the heartwrenching moment... IMO truly sad and beautiful :'|

And the artwork! Every doll is made sooooooooooo1000x very sweet! Is supported by her great storytelling or what, but slowly I even thought that I'm starting to undestand the feel of "you'll do anything to see their smiles" that happened to the doll owners...

I own all four volumes and I've read this series multiple times. The stories range from sweet and heartwarming to creepy and gothic. As the description says, many of the stories are cautionary tales and have somewhat of a fairy tale-like vibe to them. It's not the dolls themselves that are bad, but rather the humans who become obsessed with them.

A highly recommended read!

I've only read the 4th volume of this but i already love it. The plots are interesting and the art is amazing. A must read for anyone who loves great gothic lolita-ish costume.
