Hi, has anyone read this manga? I really liked this series (I've only read volume 1 and 2 so far though) since I like depressing things (I don't know why o.O).

For people that don't know what this is about, it shed light on societies real issues, like rape, suicide, sexual harrasment, prostitution, drugs etc.
Each book has it's own story and chracters. The first book has two parts, the first is about a girl who is depressed, that she has no friends and and people are mean to her. Her parents are divorced. Then she meets another girl, who is bullied severly, like they beat her up, and take her money (and other more questionable things) who is suicidal. This second girl gets to know the main character and they plan to do a double suicide... (I'll stop there, I don't want to ruin the story.)

The second part is about a child prostitude who was basicaly abused at home, and ran away. She finds someone who likes her for who she really is, but then almost loses it all...

I'm pretty sure you get the idea from that. I really like this manga, because these are interesting subjects, and as I said before I like how depressing it is (though my friends think I'm weird because of it...) and no other manga really gowes into detail on these subjects.

Please tell me your thoughts or comments on this manga or these subjects in general. (A civiliced conversation, please ^-^;; )

I glanced it over but I didn't buy it. It's easy to be attracted to pain (something we can all relate to), but it was a bit too disturbing for me... and I think the art is ugly. Haha.

No, it's not a cop-drama, though I can tell where you are coming from, from the title.

I have read until the fifth manga... man it's nice....

I think, the mangaka's purpose of making the manga is actually to educate people of the DARK side of the life/world :lol:
