Description
There is a Gothic-style mansion in a distant, rarely-visited part of Japan. There, the world's greatest surgeon, Naomitsu Madaraki, once lived. But he hasn't come home in ages.

Instead, the professor's "daughter", Fran Madaraki, lives there with a large amount of her own ghoulish creations and her "younger sister" Veronica. She's a very unusual girl, what with the stitch patterns on her face and the giant bolts on either side of her head. Just as skilled at surgery as her father, and if you're willing to pay her price, she can do everything up to and including raising the dead.

Fran believes that a life should be saved no matter the cost, and keep that in mind, since the results of her surgeries are rarely (if ever) pretty.

Good take on Frankenstein

This is a highly amusing and twisted manga. Is she good or bad? Fran Franken(stein) is neither of those I say, she is one seriously gray character! And thats rare to see in any media today.

Good art, rather episodish plot so far up to chapter 11, but amusing i a very twisted way.

8/10

Omg, I guess you need to be a twisted person to enjoy this manga, just try to read chapter 2, if you enjoyed that chapter, you will probably like the rest of this manga, btw, isnt this genre called guro?
PS: I liked this manga, guess I'm twisted too (^.^)

Wow, this manga is twisted to the point that I am actually disgusted by the fact that I actually enjoy reading it. Not really into horror but this manga is really interesting. I find it more of a mind boggler than a visual though the art does a good job adding to the impact of the manga.

I have read many MANY genres and different kinds of manga, but this.. this just truly disturbs me. It's either a like it or hate the guts out of it kind of manga.And I really like it! The story itself is very promising and original and the art is interesting to say the least. The main attraction, however, is the way the story is mixed into the product. Most of the time you will be truly surprised by the turn of events and it will leave your mouth hanging wide open at the end of each chapter.

Kudo's for being so weird AND interesting at the same time!

Main concept of this series is similar to "Wishmaster" film.
Well, no massive genie oubreak to occur =) But the way she (Fran) makes wishes come true made me remember the movie right away.
Good artwork, this series is praiseworthy.

Like most people said here, this manga's seriously MESSED UP! It is original and I love Fran, she's one of my favorite characters around. Anyway, warning people! This manga's gore type, its messed up.

So far, its 10 from me. But I hope it doesn't get repetitive, I can see the potential, but the story hasn't progressed yet, and the characters has barely been developed. Well, I've only read til to chap 4.

...I probably enjoyed this series way more than I should've. Especially chapter 2.

Man, I need to get out more.

In regards to a comment down below - Chapter 3 had a good ending, and so did chapter 4 (Sorta).
