Description
With her parents dead or missing, Azuma has been taken into her uncle's family. However her new family has been harshly abusing her, to the point she has become so mentally unstable she developed the rare syndrome of Alice in Mirrorland, which makes her see things that shouldn't be there reflected on mirrors, water, glass, etc.

Everything begins when the things she sees start affecting the real world directly, and the barrier between reality and illusion breaks apart.

Welcome to the world at the other side of the mirror. Welcome to wonderland.

Dark loli is consistent

What I usually dislike about dark plots with villainous protagonists is that, in the ones I've read, they usually turn a 180. They regret what they've done or were planning, they start being 'good', they want peace, etc.

In Sekai Oni you have Azuma, a girl who is abused by her new family, who then developed a disorder called Alice in Mirrorland syndrome. I'll try not to spoil anything but Azuma does heroic deeds for non heroic reasons, this might be familiar to some people but the thing is she's been consistent so far.

She's twisted to the point that when she realizes what happens, which shakes the other characters wills, she finally smiles and is immeasurably happy. It's not like she's gone insane or is only pretending to be happy, Azuma is genuinely pleased with the outcome.

Dark Fantasy with mediocre art   
Rating: 7.3 / 10.0

I cannot stop reading this manga. It's brutal. It's thought-provoking. It's depressing. It's fascinating. It's disgusting. It's enthralling.

Almost never before has such a complex wave of emotions compelled me to read a manga before, no matter how appalled I may be at a time.

Still... the art, most of the time, ranges from mediocre to suck-ass. Sometimes the author has a Junji Ito moment, but that's rare, although the art improves over time. The symbolism ranges from extremely interesting (the whole Alice in Wonderland thing is done exceedingly well) to bang-over-the-head subtle (a man who's an awful person has a penis on his head).

Give it a chance. You'll be hooked.

I went into Sekai because i wanting to read something messed up. Truest me I thought well its probably not going be that good nut now it is my Favorite dark manga . Though Sekai has given what i wanted an way way more, i didn't expect the humor at all and it is funny i dont care what you think its funny to me. it's an enjoyable to read thanks to the fast updates. thank's tsuki to chikyuu for the fast updates making this manga possible to love even that much more.

also the loli in Sekai, is rare i dont want to spoil but she not your normal manga loli

Half-way reading this comic made me think. How does this thing even get published?
Not that the story is bad, it's good enough to get me hooked. I just found myself wondering a lot when reading this.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
But how high must you get to draw a girl killing world devil using her lover dead body as hammer?


The art style is pretty sketchy at first, but improve drastically later on. Recommended for those who like unusual, twisted story manga and has strong stomach.

Darkly fascinating

I agree with namu76, this is similar to bokurano in the 'fight and there will be a sacrifice' concept- but I find this more engaging, especially on an emotional level. The characters are warped and damaged: it's sickening but morbidly fascinating. They get their own backstories and I feel like I can understand them and connect to them despite how grotesque everything is. I really feel for Azuma, but there's a slight strand of hope for them alll- this is where the mangaka shines. He creates sympathetic but human characters and puts them in creative and absolutely awful conditions-- but he does it in such an amazingly thoughtful and profound manner. It's not gore for the sake of gore. Or tragedy for the sake of tragedy... The mangaka is well aware of the plot themes and tropes- and he actively subverts or deconstructs them. There's a logical precision to this story, the mysteries are unfolding gradually: it's tightly plotted with a controlled pace.
Disturbing and entrancing. A definite 10/10.

-also thanks for the fast scanlations tsuki to chikyuu

This is pretty much similar to Bokurano. while I'd like to say this series has it's own charm point.

The characters are all whacky. Seriously, they're all crazy, which I found interesting in it's own right. Plus, there are humors (well, dark humors, actually), which I think Bokurano is lacking. And, although somewhat twisted, there is a ray of hope for the main character(Azuma)'s motive in fighting. At first, Azuma seems to give no damn about the whole thing, even almost like giving up her life. But, after the true nature of the fight is revealed, she decided to fight and kill all the remaining enemies.

Anymore than this might become spoiler, so I'd end it here. Well just give it a try. It won't hurt.
