The Red Satchel: Haruna's deathly appearance shocks her friends when she returns to school. She disappears again, leaving only her red school satchel and its gruesome contents. Two Sisters: Young, beautiful Ms. Numata is a popluar teacher, but her outer appearance hides a ghastly truth she has kept secret since birth.

Reviews - What do customers think about Skin And Bone (Hino Horror)?

Skin and Bone is the 14th volume of Cocoro Books Hino Horror series that fizzled out without ever printing volumes 15 and 16 that were advertised in this book. Skin and Bone is standard Hino with kids eating bugs, enduring terrible curses, and receiving divine or demonic punishment, that tends to outweigh the original sin. Most of the stories deal with revenge such as a fat girl being harrassed to the point where she starves to death to fend off bullying. After she dies, her skeleton wreaks death upon those that prosecuted her! There are even meditational devotions to kids that like particular creepy crawly things like slugs, caterpillars, and rats. Most of the storytelling is pretty ho-hum and is easily predictable. What Hino considers twists or surprises have already been done many many times. There's also no sense of inner life in these characters, so when people get killed, there's really no sense of loss. On top of all this, none of the stories were even mildly scary. Hino either tries to gross you out or make you laugh and he fails miserably at both in Skin and Bone. After reading the 14 available volumes of Hino Horror, I don't see what the big deal about him is. Except for a few volumes, the series has been below average or mediocre at best so I can see why they weren't selling. Hino is worth checking out but don't expect his work to live up to the hype of him being the god of horror manga.
