Surprising amount of Heart but still gross

Hell baby is a short 1 volume story about a grotesque baby born from another twin. The father believing her to be too ugly to live decides to chuck her at the dumpster where most of the trash, but the baby gets revived via magic stuff and the story is pretty much her life as that thing.

Now this series is kind of gross but much less than i expected it to be. Due to the author's art style and his sense of humor there is a lot of black comedy. Honestly I'm surprised by how much i laughed at this monster manga.

However despite the jokes this manga has HEART, of all things i didn't actually expect this. This manga was more than just some grotesque imagery but actually had a surprising amount of heart and passion, and at the end of the day I'm actually sad. Like considering the type of manga this was it was far better than i expected it to be.

Overall i enjoyed the series, but the supernatural element brought the series down. 8/10

This is honestly one of the best manga that I have ever read. It is so beautiful and so well written; the narration is absolutely perfect. Never had a manga touch my heart like this one. Even though some might believe that the art is very bad, I think it matches perfectly with the story, if it were drawn any other way, I personally think it will going to completely change the way the story's mood. I cried reading this simple and beautiful manga. I think everyone should read this.

Overall, LOVE this story. This is probably going to be my #1 manga of all time. It's truly a work of art; a masterpiece.

To me, this is more of a tragedy than a horror story. If you read it expecting to be freaked out or scared, you'll probably be disappointed, but story-wise I really enjoyed it. Personally I like the art, so saying that it's bad or ugly is definitely subjective.

Despite the art, the story really is something, covering the art
I really learn don't judge book by its cover from here
yes the artwork kind of disturbing, but talk about disturbing, Junji Itou's is MORE disturbing
yet Junji Itou's work never leave me such a so-heart-wrenching feeling like this one does

the art is typical hideshi hino which is always very bad....style and technique are always bleh

if i would describe this with 3 words i could say it was freaky,funny and gross...thank god it wasn't as gross as another one i've read in the past from hideshi hino (can't remember the title) that made me sick in my stomach while reading it

it's ok i guess but nothing more than that

Not all that good

The art is unique, which isn't always good.

This series feels like it tries to portray a series of a morals in a horror setting. The standard for what is horror goes up each year though and this just doesn't cut it any more.
