A short story collection of Jirô Matsumoto's, things get nasty, and wet. Seriously, in each of those stories there's enough body fluid sloshing about to fill a swimming pool.

It was... actually pretty good. If you can really look past all the blood, gore, and sex (and there is a lot), then you'll find an interesting story. It definitely isn't for a young audience, not just because of the blood, gore, and sex, though. Younger people probably won't be able to understand the meaning behind each short story. I mean, it's not like older people will understand the story completely, either, but at least they have a higher chance of appreciating the depth and complexity of the stories. I recommend it if you feel you are capable of looking past the big three (blood, gore, and sex), and think you can understand complex and deep stories.

at first the stories might appear kinda shallow with all the graphic sex and violence. but the further in u go into that world and start to unravel the underlying connections of the stories, it makes for a very complex thought provoking work of art.
if you want a lighter version try 'a revolutionist in the afternoon', it has a variety of shorts and slightly less gory. i like his short stories much more than freesia which i just cant endure anymore, it seems unending and kinda taxing on psyche.

I see people saying this isn't suited for young people. What are you talking about? Of course, it's not for kids, but teenagers are young people. Moreover, this is the kind of manga that is optimal for teenagers who seek profound meaning in their manga. Matsumoto-san doesn't make his stories so sophisticated and adult that young'uns can't understand them properly. It is deep, and sometimes hard to understand, I wholly agree with that, but don't underestimate teenagers' ability to see what Matsumoto-san wants to convey here. And if you're referring to the shameless amounts of uncensored sex, that makes it all the more appealing to teens.

Now then, Sanpol and Krezol.

I absolutely loved the stories about the gas mask kids, Sanpol and Krezol. Particularly the first one. It is extremely surreal, bizarre and mysterious, not to mention sexually explicit. Now most of Matsumoto-san's stories are that, but there's something excessively strange and wonderful about a brother and his younger sister observing the painful and dirty world from behind their gas masks. It's the most beautiful manga short story I've read in a long time.

There are a couple of stories that leave you feeling rather filthy, but If you're giving this collection a go, don't stop until you've at least reached Sanpol and Krezol.

Because i got into Freesia, i started to read alot of Matsumoto's works, and this one isn't short from being good. Yes, each chapter has lots of sex but that isn't what the story is about, theres always a deep story hidden in each chapter.

I'm looking forward to reading more of his work in the future.

Even the author itself commented that its strange LoL. I only like where the Gas Mask Kids apppeared since it somehow gives some realizations or moral lesson of the story besides their innocence. The rest is somehow disturbing, gruesome and strange turn of events. There are some story confuses me.

The only thing I can say about this manga is that. Weird.

I wasn't sure about the 1st one... The 2nd was just as bizarre. But I somehow liked the 3rd (Gas Mask kids). And the last one was cool too.

Well that IS explicit.

it require you to be supremely bored and supremely bloated with the usual manga fare to read this meandering, nearly plotless manga. hey, i like it, but i understand if most people dont. i like the gas mask kids because they look so innocent compared to the adults. i also like the sniper story because it is a heartwarming feel-good kind of manga that you tend to crave for after reading stories after stories of uninhibited sex and ceaseless violence. the art is sketchy but beautiful, as expected of this mangaka.
try this, just throw your squeamishness outside for a bit.

If you can look beyond the sex and violence there's a hint of genius there
