Rating: N/A

DAY 1: November 22, 1988: Kidnapped
Kept captive in house, and posed as one of boy’s girlfriend
Raped (over 400 times in total)
Forced to call her parents and tell them she had run away
Starved and malnutritioned
Fed cockroaches to eat and urine to drink
Forced to masturbate
Forced to strip in front of others
Burned with cigarette lighters
Foreign ob<x>jects inserted into her vagina/anus

DAY 11: December 1, 1988: Severely beat up countless times
Face held against concrete ground and jumped on
Hands tied to ceiling and body used as a punching bag
Nose filled with so much blood that she can only breath through her mouth
Dumbbells dropped onto her stomach
Vomited when tried to drink water (her stomach couldn’t accept it)
Tried to escape and punished by cigarette burning on arms
Flammable liquid poured on her feet and legs, then lit on fire
Bottle inserted into her anus, causing injury

DAY 20: December10, 1989: Unable to walk properly due to severe leg burns
Beat with bamboo sticks
Fireworks inserted into anus and lit
Hands smashed by weights and fingernails cracked
Beaten with golf club
Cigarettes inserted into vagina
Beaten with iron rods repeatedly
Winter; forced outside to sleep in balcony
Skewers of grilled chicken inserted into her vagina and anus, causing bleeding

DAY 30: Hot wax dripped onto face
Eyelids burned by cigarette lighter
Stabbed with sewing needles in chest area
Left nipple cut and destroyed with pliers
Hot light bulb inserted into her vagina
Heavy bleeding from vagina due to scissors insertion
Unable to urinate properly
Injuries were so severe that it took over an hour for her to crawl downstairs and use the bathroom
Eardrums severely damaged
Extreme reduced brain size

DAY 40: Begged her torturers to “kill her and get it over with”

January 1, 1989: Junko greets the New Years Day alone
Body mutilated
Unable to move from the ground

DAY 44: January 4, 1989: The four boys beat her mutilated body with an iron barbell, using a loss at the game of Mah-jongg as a pretext. She is profusely bleeding from her mouth and nose. They put a candle’s flame to her face and eyes.

Then, lighter fluid was poured onto her legs, arms, face and stomach, and then lit on fire. This final torture lasted for a time of two hours.

Junko Furuta died later that day, in pain and alone. Nothing could compare 44 days of suffering she had to go through.

When her mother heard the news and details of what had happened to her daughter, she fainted. She had to undergo a psychiatric outpatient treatment . Imagine her endless pain.

Her killers are now free men. Justice was never served, not even after 20 years.
They deserve a punishment much greater than they had put upon Furuta, for putting an innocent girl through the most unbearable suffering.

This story from 1989 is true. Please spread her story around. Everyone should know about the existence of Junko Furuta’s unimaginable and incomprehensible suffering, and this is why this group has been made.

Invite your friends. Never let her story be forgotten. If this story changes the life of at least one person then it has been worth it.

Rest In Eternal Peace,
Junko Furuta

True Horror

I couldn't help but to feel shocked when i realized this to be a true story. As if it wasn't horrifying enough...
With that in mind, and after reading the comments of the previous poster, i feel the need to speak up my mind. The previous poster thinks of humans as apex predators, vicious animals that stop at nothing until they are pleased with themselves, and that would be true if we lived in a sociopathic society. But i don't believe that all of us or even most of us for that matter are sociopaths. You say that people are abused everyday and kids are sold as sex slaves, and yes that is true, it is also true that children die of hunger everyday in Africa, some in even worse circumstances. And that is terrible to say the least. What matters after knowing this is how you choose to react to these events. Indifference? Never.
But you cannot deny empathy and compassion and the desire to help. If people feel for the story of Junko Furuta, and i'm included in that group, then you cannot mock those feelings. This story makes me sick and enrages me, but one must never forget that it is important to raise awareness and to try to prevent something like this from ever happening again.
44 days of torture are true and something that should not be forgotten.

A better ending than this turned out in real life....

As for Swallowed God, You don't know what the hell you are talking about, stop spewing self pitying filth. You may love killing, you may think nothing of it. That doesn't mean others do. Humanity isn't a bunch of saints nor is it a bunch of depraved killers, you lost your reason at some point in Iraq, time to get it back.

This manga is one definitely need to be read by general population. Horrible situations like this exists daily without many acknowledgement, thus people tends to ignore the injustices. The bystander effect is even worse, you can google it up. So people, please take a look at this manga to reinforce your own awareness of the crimes around you.

Movies can show violence against a person, but there is always a restriction of what they can show. Books can tell of rape and torture, but can not force people to understand. A manga like this, however, can show everything, all the torments, pain, and cruelty, while still keeping the horror realistic enough to make people never forget these events. I agree with Wanderer11 that this needs a lot more awareness, especially in some more developed countries where life is good enough there that you can forget or not understands some of the horrors people can do to each other.

Reading through the other posts and although the manga is tragic, i dont think it compares to the real torture junko endured.

Either way, i recommend this manga and i feel that junko's true story needs more attention especially since the real ending wasnt as peachy and rainbows as its manga counterpart's.

A story about group mentality, an insane bully and his lackeys. Immoral, out-of-control and self-centred kids devoid of any empathy. Some unbelievably incompetent parents as well. (Mizuno's)

This manga is absolutely wonderful and the art is beautiful! Plot is good, characters are amazingly realistic (yes, there are people like that fat mofo in the world). The artist is so good with expressions they don't need words. I like the excitement this manga brings "will she survive", "will her sister find her" etc. I could praise this all night really! Even the delinquents had their own "justice, morale-code" and it's interesting to see how their way of thinking differ from one another.

I'll give this 9/10 because this has a happy ending -.-

Why has nobody said anything about Mizuno's mom?

It was painful having to read it knowing that it was based off of a true story. I kept thinking, how could people be so crule and do such horrendous things to others. Looking at the other reviews my thoughts twords this manga have already been covered.
I felt sympathetic twords Hiroki, but mostly angry that he never spoke up. I think he should've said something, but if he actually did (depending on how far in he was) he would've most likley have gotten killed by Miyamoto, and the only good of doing that would be dying with honor and a good moral compass.
Another thing I would like to mention is that other than Miyamoto and the delinquents, there is another character in the story who I am completely infuriated and disgusted with; Mizuno's mom! She sees Sachiko, in the decrepit state she's in. It's apparent to her what her son plus his delinquent have been doing, and she does nothing. She even takes the abuse from his son and even witnesses her husband getting beatn up by him.
She had probably the best opportunity to alert the police with little to no consequences other than being sad that your sons a monster and is in jail. No, instead she doesn't go to the athorities, but goes about her daily routine, guilt-ridden. The same can be said for the other characters, that they should have reported this to the police but out of all the people she had it the easiest. I would have liked to see her have at least has some punishment in the end.
