Heart breakingly true.

This manga is based on the true story of Junko Furuta. A young girl who was abducted by a group of boys and put through the 44 days of hell. She was tortured in most disgustingly cruel ways. The story didn't even receive a lot of attention in the media until almost 20 years later.

On to the story. This is definitely not for the faint of heart. Like the manga Shamo and the 2007 movie/novel The Girl Next Door. This manga uses a true story to highlight the dark side of human nature and society. Like the other two I enjoyed it. It's sad and shocking, but it's not often that stories like to deal with stuff like this. Not a big fan of the art, but it's adequate.

Movies can show violence against a person, but there is always a restriction of what they can show. Books can tell of rape and torture, but can not force people to understand. A manga like this, however, can show everything, all the torments, pain, and cruelty, while still keeping the horror realistic enough to make people never forget these events. I agree with Wanderer11 that this needs a lot more awareness, especially in some more developed countries where life is good enough there that you can forget or not understands some of the horrors people can do to each other.

This manga is one definitely need to be read by general population. Horrible situations like this exists daily without many acknowledgement, thus people tends to ignore the injustices. The bystander effect is even worse, you can google it up. So people, please take a look at this manga to reinforce your own awareness of the crimes around you.

this manga is based on the horrific shocking torture case of Junko Furuta
The Girl Who Went through 44 days of Torture
and this story is not a something to enjoy but reminds of how humans can be utterly cruel and sick
also justice doesnt get served in the end
