    Just finished Chapter 8. I'm reading it all, in case something that's actually scary happens, but nothing scary nor grotesque to be found.

    Hand-bra Jeans

    The exposure of the female's soft body. Whether you like it or not, being naked to the waist and the mismatch between the hard and thick jeans. The true essence is the union of girly and boyish styles.At the same time, the hand-bra forces even the current girls that lack shameful feelings to make an embarrassing pose. Depending on how it is seen, it also shows a form of eroticism by making it look like the girls are rubbing their own breasts.

    The internet's made my mind pretty much numb to a lot of things, but I give props to the artist, he's very skilled and gives a lot of attention to details and to the way characters show emotion.

    I get what you mean, because I used to go onto 4chan, and would see all those gore threads. Gore doesn't gross me out, even if it's the real thing pictures, real life, I don't care, but physiological stuff fucks with me.

    Totally agree...internet desensitization. The artist is pretty talented indeed.

    Alright, I finished it.. Pretty addictive, I wanted to know how it ended, it sparked my curiosity, thats for sure.

    Although, looking back on it, I didn't really like the manga. The art was okay, not really my style. Once the people started spiraling and such (when they were reconstructing the town), it seemed to get redundant. It was fun at first, but became boring to me towards the end.

    What a disappointing ending. And here I was hoping Shuichi and Kirie would survive and somehow make it out of there.

    You've got a good point there. Good thing I don't plan to finish up at a hospital anyway.

    I just read the first two chapters, I have to say it wasn't all that terrifying. There were a couple parts that were tense, but not that bad.

    Meh, I prefer to read about the more pleasant and finer things in life...rather than about pregnant mosquito women. So I'll pass.

    You've either lived a very sheltered life or you are secretly a sociopath if this is the only thing that has truly disturbed you.

    Of course, it could just be typical PS360 over-exaggeration

    I haven't read this in its entirety yet, but I will tell you its relatively standard, but very well executed horror. My only complaint thus far is the suspension of disbelief required at certain parts is a bit too high for my tastes, this makes the overall story quality poor in my opinion. Much like Sci-fi that element of the equation is paramount to creating a worth-while narrative.

    But thats not really the point here clearly, this is "high-art horror" so to speak. Its about the spectacle of what is going on rather than what is actually going on. Character motives? Character development? Sensible plot points? Heck, an actual plot? None of that really matters. Shits going to happen and you are either on for the ride or not. Thats really where the value in this manga comes in, and its very good in this regard.

    The thing that is keeping me reading at the moment is I am actually curious if the spiral obsession plays apart in the over-arching narrative structure, and on that aspect of curiosity it will suck you in well. Plus, as with most spectacles, the disturbing ride works.

    I am not a big horror fan, so would you still recommend it knowing what I get scared about?
    Then you don't get scared easily, you startle easily.

    Jump scares aren't scary, they are the lowest common denominator of what can be considered "horror." They are easy to accomplish and movies that rely on them are all horrible (thats a universal truth).

    Same goes for over-use/exaggeration of violence/gore, very low, very easy, and movies that rely on it are all garbage.
    Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.


    Gauss's Rating Rationale:
    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.
