Izumi Shoichi is a beautiful and talented actress - or so she appears to be. Underneath her heavy makeup she hides a disfiguring skin condition and despises her appearance to the point of madness, wanting nothing more than to be beautiful again. She enlists the help of her family doctor and eventually has a child, Sakura, who she runs away with and is never seen on the screen again. Now, Sakura is a little girl who witnesses the manic and controlling behavior of her mother so that she may grow up to be lovely and perfect; but little does she know the real and horrifying reason her mother brought her into this world...

Yucy and Yudy are two conjoined twins who have been together since birth. However, as the nutrients in their bodies distribute unevenly, Yucy is beautiful yet slow-minded while Yudy is intelligent and horrifically ugly. Yudy is torn between her love for her sister and her hate for having to care for Yucy; can the two continue to co-exist?

Baptism and Hanshin are two dark manga involving the ugly and the beautiful, and the depths to which people will go to change their situations.
