By Reiko Momochi
Ever thought about suicide?
Having problems at home? Feel like life is one big corrupted pile of shit? Then PLEASE!! I BEG YOU don't read Vol. 1 of "Confidential
Confessions" You'll probably slit your wrist half way thou it. The manga is an in-depth intrusive look at society's most complex
issues. The first volume revolves around that happy little topic of "suicide" I wasn't too sure if the book wanted me to kill
myself or not. Reiko Momochi seemed to glorify suicide before chasing that little fantasy away with a healthy dose of reality--which
would have been about 40 pages too late if I was contemplating actually taking my own life! This manga is said to be a bit
controversial *hn* supposedly. I've read the first 3 and I found them depressing not controversial; yet, I must admit, strangely
interesting. The judge is still out on this one, I don't hate it. Pick it up if you think you can handle the "hard" issues,
or need that extra push--you know what I mean.
