In 2005, I wrote a review of a manga called Ultra Sword by Hayashiya Shizuru. It was a series based upon demon rape and violence. I thought it was…not too bad, considering. Well now, more of her stories from Hot Milk comics have been collected into a volume called Jigoku NEET (地獄ニート).
The title comes from the first half of the book, in which we follow the slacker daughter of the King of Hell as she and her sister are exiled to earth and refuse to become productive members of society. Instead, they lay around and whine, go around naked when it’s hot, accidentally burn their house down and end up homeless and naked in a park. When the younger sister dies, she ends up in Heaven, where she becomes an angel. To save her younger sister, Sangaria, Jingaria the older sister, leads the legions of hell against the angels. Sister takes on sister and in their final battle, they end up sending themselves to a desert island somewhere, where it can be just the two of them, naked, forever. This story actually made me laugh out loud in places.
Oh yeah, it’s that kind of comic.
This is followed by attempted rape by a spirit in a hospital who is thwarted by a very attractive hermaphrodite, a disturbing story about two bunny girls and wacky life with a Christmas fairy.
The title story was so wackadoodle that in comparison the rest were pretty weak, but it really didn’t matter. I’m not the audience for Hot Milk Comics. Presumably, they really like these kinds of things. More importantly, I really hope Hayashiya-sensei has a lot of fun creating them.

One reads this kind of thing because one is a Hot Milk Comics kind of person, or a Hayashiya kind of person.
