Old manga but still pretty good.

There are some things that you notice right away that it's an old manga, one thing most noticeable is the the organization (which isn't as fancy as recent manga--it's literally just squares in a roll and you read it that way) is very simple and repetitive. But the plot is on another level in its capture of the greed of human needs with a really good plot twist (but somewhat predictable). I've never actually read anything like this before. I do have to admit that it's a really odd point of view of the mangaka to indicate the needs of a little girl and erasing them, and giving her the needs of an actual woman who wants security.

All in all, a very good read and definitely recommend to the readers that enjoy thriller.

this series has really nice drawings for a manga published in 1974...if u compare it to other manga of the era you can see the difference...shame that only 1 chapter was released bigrazz ....i still wonder why she gave birth to her daughter....it doesn't seem at all bad from one chapter...i can clearly see how kazuo umezu influenced junji ito! i love the detailed art and the striking similarity in facial expressions to junji ito's art
