You know how you read a story by a creator and you think it’s awesome, then you read two more and you notice they seem to have a verbal tic? Well, as I read Ohkita Hiroko’s Hadashi no Chimera, I couldn’t help but notice that pretty much every story has a woman who has been beaten, raped, abused and is covered in bandages and bruises.
So, while individually, I don’t mind her stories, as a collection it seemed that she has some issues she’s working out through her art…and I’m sorry to say that, in this case, it thoroughly creeped me out.
Overall – 5
While individual stories may or may have not been bad, there were just too many women with just too many bandages for me to like this collection.
