Description
"My eyes were covered by Daddy so I wouldn't know the way. My mouth was gagged and my ears were plugged by Mommy so I would hear and speak no evil. Daddy forbade me from smiling so I wouldn't have dreams and hopes. Mommy spawned me...so I would bear all her sins."

Disturbing

Okay, though it`s not for my age, I enjoy some minority of seinen i thought i could take this even when i read the warning comments. But hell, I didn`t expect it. It was utter sh#*. The art was beautiful but grotesque. I managed to go through the whole thing but if there was one manga I`d never reopen again till I die it`s this one. I agree with the others, youngsters under 18 shouldnt read this yet. It was a wonderfully deep story but too disturbing

One word - 'Bizarre'

This is actually a really good one-shot; riddled with symbolism and dealing head-on with the experiences and mental processes of a girl undergoing puberty. At times, however, I felt that it was rather melodramatic. I doubt many people have ever gone through the extreme experiences etched out in this one-shot... but it will be a very relateable for those who have.

There are some very graphic scenes here (though nothing resembling rape) - and I would not recommend it to anyone below 18 years of age. I usually never read manga like this, but Furuya Usamaru's skill lies in that he makes it obvious that the nudity and sexual symbolism serve a much more profound purpose than mindless fan-service for hentai-addicts and lolicons.

The art is simply stunning- being incredibly unique and stylized. The colours are rich and enhance the mood of the illustrations perfectly.

Read Plastic Girl if you're interested in a deeply psychological and brutally surreal manga. However, if you're looking for something enjoyable, I suggest you look elsewhere.

truly disturbing. I'm sure I've truly understood only a part of it, but it doesn't matter. Those few pages(around 30) had a big impact on me. I reccomend it to all over 16, since it is a mature-manga and not classified as one without reason. Don't misunderstand me: It's not like some hentai, or extreme smut-manga: It's also not like a bloody manga with lots of gore like Berserk or something like that. It's the story that makes you shiver; even if you don't fully understand it, you can feel the pain, and there are is a lot of stuff implied younger readers wouldn't get.
that's all. Read it, but please avoid it if you can't take heavier, darker stuff. I can only say it a second time: If you're too young, you won't "enjoy" this. You just won't.

Furuya at its best

This is Furuya, with his eccentric surrealism, grotesque images, and FULL COLOUR.
In full force.

And he did well; this is probably one of the best, undiluted, Usamaru Furuya, IMO.
The stories are rather nonsensical..until the end. And then it all makes sense.

It's a bizarre, abstract and thought-provoking piece of art that is definitely one of the best short stories by Furuya Usamaru. It's not just a usual, gory stuff, but a really intriguing, original, imaginative concept and a colorful, strange style put together. This manga is like a weird but beautiful patchwork to me, but of course, I'm slightly biassed.
