im not an eroguro person , but as someone else has mentioned this story seems to almost be a ... idk, homage seems to be inappropriate here, but it definitely echoes back to the WWII euphemistically-named "comfort women" and their experiences, transposed to 19th century europe.

Gruesome and depressing

This manga is not recommend for those with a weak heart. The theme revolves around dreams that end up being nightmares. The first chapter would be the most gruesome, as it immediately presents the dark theme of the manga(it also involves physical injuries to gut wrenching places i.e. the eye). However, the later chapters focus more on the psychological side of the girls soon to be or involved with the troupe. Still, I see it as extremely depressing. The story is interesting and provides different points of view of those involved in Bradherley's troupe. My biggest gripe though, would be the ambiguous ending for some of the chapter's characters(It still makes me depressed) . However, the story wraps up perfectly in what to me seemed reminiscent of what happened to Rorschach in Watchmen. I recommend people to read it for the story and the though provoking themes the mangaka gives.

You should be able handle a dark manga with nasty raping scene if you gonna read it. So far the idea is sick but not so unreality.
After all, It's a well draw 1 vol manga that would really touch your feeling during the whole story.

This is one very sick and disturbing story. There were some scenes I couldn't stomach. You have to be able to accept dark mangas to be able to read this cause this is one of the extremes. It terrifies me that this could actually really happened back then since they didn't have human right's protection like today. I can't say I hate it and I can't say I like it either so I guess no ratings for this one.

Need to wash my head of this sickening story by reading super cute shoujos.

Seriously I'm warning those to can't stand gruesome rape. It's really quite nasty.

if you're looking for something to enjoy and kill the time, i suggest you look elsewhere. this is the kind of stuff that professors can write dozens of essays on. although the concept would be ridiculous nowadays, it wouldn't have been uncommon during the early 20th century. the artist weaves the story and tone in such a way that you can't help but feel sympathy for the orphans. this is definitely a masterpiece that shows the power of visual imagery.

Fiction or is it?

Yes, this is a fictional story, but we can be and have been cruel creatures historically. The story is not so far fetched given the time period where both women and orphans were lower than dogs. They had no rights or freedoms to speak of. That is why I said that this story could well have taken place in that period of history. It really is an excellent story. The art is beautiful. The characters, although only appear for a short time are extremely well developed. It is not a story for the feint of heart, but a wonderful story to read.
I really look forward to read more of this artist's works.

This manga was really good and interesting. It would've gotten a nine, but its ending was a bit open, so I had to lower it to an eight.

The art was great; a bit scratchy, but I like it that way. The plot wasn't much of one, but how the author tells the story and the story as a whole is utterly fascinating.

Woah woah woah...didn't quite expect this from Samura. It's a pretty sick idea for a manga. While I generally like reading manga with gratuitous sex and violence, I draw the line at two things:

1. Eye injuries
2. Underaged rape

I was actually quite close to puking at one point.

The way the story is structured, reminds me a little of Tarantino's 'Pulp Fiction'. There isn't much of a resolution at the end (maybe there was something I missed), and, I would say, overall, reading this didn't really make for a good or satisfying experience...

the art is good as you can expect from Hiroaki Samura, but I kinda curious about the historical background, because Nicola A. Bradherley doesn't exist.

Awesome manga, but it kinda brings up historical grudges in me. The atrocities depicted in the manga really happened during the Japanese occupation in my country in WWII. Women were taken in as captives and turned into "comfort women"--pretty much the same concept as comfort rooms, only, the soldiers were not lining up to pee, they were lining up to fukc. The sad thing was, this rapings were all legal and institutionalized.
