The best and the worst, combined.
To put it into a chronological flow, Re_ Incarnation is the story of three young mangakas writing a dramatic hard-sci-fi manga. The balance of their circle is broken by the intrusion of a “were slut” female, followed by the bonding of one of the members with another woman who had a soft spot for him. As they discover the joys of abundant sex, the story they write becomes sexual; meanwhile their inter-personal relationships become a mess, until at last a new point of balance is reached and we have a vanilla conclusion.
To put it into the way the Re_ Incarnation manga went: it’s a fucken bloody mess. The volume starts with the first chapters of the manga created by the youngsters, and it’s a piece where monstruous male orcs rape and mindbreak and kill and dismember women. It’s only 83 pages after the beginning that we exit this fucking nightmare and realize it was a mise en abyme, a manga within the manga.
Fuck. That. shit. As a literary trick that was dishonest, distasteful and disgusting.
Its a pity that the “method” chosen by the mangaka grossed me so much, if you exclude the gruesome orcs parts, it’s a frankly interesting read, the fictional manga affects the “real” (airquotes! ^^) characters, who are affected back, the human interactions aren’t bad at all, and the sex is super hot, I adore the way Chiba Toshirou draws women.
Well, I’ll leave it up to you guys, and I apologize I wrote yet another super long wall of text. I imagine it could have been summarized better, but I’m not good enough
