Description
From Esthétique:

"I am a human, but a doll...
Feelings are not needed. Physically alive, but not mentally.
I am a painting trapped inside a rusted frame.
The cold skin of a statue.
Like a stuffed bird--
Killed and set for display.
I wonder...
I wonder, on whose display I will be placed..."

Includes extra story, The Dancing Marionette (Vol 3).

Not what I have expected...

When I read that discription, I imagined something completely different.
I think this is a big spoiler, so...
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I though the girl hersilf was some sort of a living doll, but it was like in an episode of the anime "jing the king of bandits" where a girl was sold like a piece of art, that was in fact, painted on her body by her father..


What can I say, not a really good read..
The artwork is pretty nice, but not so fantastic either..
The idea I had in mind about this story was blown away by some other, strange story, that I did not like..
The characters were.. Really doll like, with little emotions.
It had its nice moments, but other than that- nothing special that you should waste too much tome on..

The story starts off mysteriously, and it is intriguing to me.
Wonderful artwork, each page and each corner is full of
stunning detail and eye candy. Gorgeous.

I was a bit surprised towards the later chapters of volume
one. It slightly reminds me of Chobits, but the stories
are much different.

A very satisfying read for art lovers and slightly darker reads

The art may be a little intimidating, but ti it none the less beautiful.
The story isn't really captivating, but the characters are well developed.
Although, this story hasn't gone very far yet, I still enjoyed the opening of this story.
I have to say though, what pulled my interest into it was the art, but I really do enjoy Kim Mi Jung's work.
