Broadly speaking, I don't like Manga (sorry, not sorry), though Junji Ito has proven to be the exception, His tales are never dull, at times retch-inducing, and always ghastly. What more could a girl ask for??

This vulnerable autobiographical manga is tremendously moving, honestly beautiful, tragically funny and surprisingly unerotic. The way Nagata views pain, expectations and adulthood as she learns to cope with her sexuality as well as her depression is what makes this raw and messy story all around remarkable and painfully relatable. This isn't a pretty story, but it is worth it.
