I`ve read a lot of disturbing sexual mangas probably you can say worse than this but this is just....different. It involves young girls and there was no happy ending. the sacrifice went on and so.
But a work of art and wonderful story nevertheless. because it`s not all fluffy and sparkly but it`s the reality of the world we live in nevertheless.

I know everyone's giving all these depressing reviews and stuff but to me it was just okay. I found the sketchy art to be the most disturbing. Overall, I think it would've made a better novel.

Ok, so you're probably going to ignore my advice but I will give it anyway. If you are at all likely to be disturbed by tragic, violent and sexual scenes involving young girls then do not read this. Naturally, having been told not to read this you will now go ahead and read it (it was the very same thing that suckered me in so I don't blame you).

To be fair I will mention that the art is great and the story actually has a deep, if disturbing, idea behind it. As other's have mentioned, this manga is clearly based on the 'comfort women', which makes you seriously consider the capabilities of human cruelty. Not just of the Lord who organises the whole thing but all those who help him, the prisons which allow it, the prisoners who act so violently towards these girls, the orphanages who provide the blissfully ignorant girls despite knowing their fate and even the ruthlessness of the girls themselves as they long to be chosen. Each chapter shows a new story, from the perspective of a new girl, which makes them almost independent but each one has an almost overwhelming feeling of sorrow mixed into it.

Despite how excellent this manga is I really wish I hadn't read it, just because this will haunt me and I'd rather forget what I saw.

This story has so much depth and quite a significant message i couldn't finish it in one night.
I think the mere thought of this happening wrenched my guts and i felt... horrid..
This manga is definitely not to be taken on a light note and the different stories that all seem to end in that understandable cliff hanger silence just cuts deep.

woow... don't think i have the guts to read these type anymore, the story is just horrible and sad but so powerful.

It was a very nice story...I kinda read the comments below before reading this and i mist say it was not what i expected... I thought it'll be a very disgusting manga... We IT IS but not too much of it.. Well in any case... Read it yourself to judge it... Recommended for HISTORIC READER WHO WANTS A SPICE REALITY (even thou dont know if it really happeed before) AND FOR PERVERT READERS ( this doesnt have much though) THIS IS JUST VERY MATURE...

I couldn't stomach 2 chapters, I had to stop. The violence is awful...OMG >< I really wish I hadn't seen that...god that was awful.
The manga (from what I've just read) is actually quite 'good' but...the sexual violence my god.

This isn't actually based on a true event is it embarrassed

Just don't read this. Spoiler/Trigger warning: It's about twelve and thirteen year old girls being gang raped to death. The only difference between different volumes is a slightly different backstory or hair color for the young girl and how many days before she dies of massive internal injuries and sepsis. Oh, also, the grown men who are gang raping the little girls, in every single chapter, abuse and torture them in creative ways. So that's another difference between chapters, I guess. Sometimes the girls almost escape, but they never do. In one of the first chapters, the girl gets her eye pulled out by one of the rapists. Then she's raped by fifty more men that day. Then she lingers for days more of being raped, before she dies.

So, uh: Trigger warning. Ya think?

Also, in the manga, the reason the government has these girls killed is to keep peace in the prisons. The author makes his world-view explicitly clear in the entire series. That is: All men have an instinctive need to rape women and children, and if their need to rape is not satisfied, they destroy the social order. Any men insulted by this? At all?

You would think that, even if the prisoners were all going to go full-on Attica if they didn't get laid, the government could have just hired prostitutes and given them a reasonable workload and some assurance of safety. But no, the "only possible" solution is to throw pre-teen girls into the prison yards and leave them there until - and only until - they are dead.

What is wrong with this guy? This manga is stupid and perpetuates the idea that men are hard-wired to rape.

I read this for the eroguro.... I truly do like it, but this story is so completely wretched and depressing, I was bawling all of the way through. Sure there was gore and copious amounts of rape and all, but I was so absolutely depressed by what was happening that the violent imagery was just on the sidelines, to be honest I hardly even noticed it.

I guess this should be expected though, even this author's guro art book, with no narration and dialogue at all made me feel major second hand despair just by looking at it. This was exactly the same.

Bradherley's Coach present the most awful story I've ever read, and I mean that as positively as is possible.

Without a little knowledge of Japanese history, it seems like just a well-done tragedy porn, exploring the limits of the evils of mankind - mankind, specifically - while stirring up as much righteous anger in the reader as possible. The only consolation for the unthinkably heinous things people do in this manga is that they couldn't possibly happen in real life. But they can - and they have.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the situation bears a striking resemblance to the Japanese practice of collecting so-called "comfort women" for the use of its soldiers. It's transposed onto an exotic European background, and the drama is cranked up a few notches - there aren't many figures more pitiable than a little orphan girl who dreams of being an opera singer - but all the main parts are still there. I don't know if this was a subconscious national guilt thing on the part of the author or just a premise he thought might be fun to draw, but it's definitely not a coincidence.

Despite my hatred of gore, I managed to read through this volume without any queasiness - except for one niggling element. Something about this manga makes it seem like it's supposed to be sexy. A certain angle of bloody breast, a certain curve of broken leg. Something about the author's casual afterword. Even though the rape isn't really all that explicit, there's something about it that seems like he intended jacking off to be part of the reader's viewing experience. I don't like to judge, and I don't like to think people can ever be considered "evil", but if I ever was to I think I'd include getting turned on by this manga as one of the criteria.
