A young girl has headed into the forest with a delicious feast of apples, pie and wine; her mother warns her not to do so, for it's dangerous and she might get her dress dirty. Nearby, a hungry wolf awaits, ready to strike; what will happen to the girl?
Dark one-shots based on Little Red Riding Hood. Both are reliant on visuals over text (though Little Sweet Delusion does have narration).
The gorgeous artwork in both uses color in interesting ways (muted full-color in "LSD" and plenty of spot-blacks in "AtYO"). The darker takes on the fairy tales makes them perfect complements.
A young girl's mother dies, leaving her with a kind sentiment: if she plants a hazel tree where her grave is, the girl can shake it when deeply worried and her mother will help her. Afterwards, a new woman arrives as her mother, along with two new daughters who will serve as sisters. However, the only one ‘serving' is the young girl, as her new family forces her to perform slave labor while covered in cinders. Soon her luck will change, for a grand ball is approaching, and the prince is rumored to be looking for a wife...
Both are based off of fairy tales but have a dark and bloody twist. Also, both have beautiful and unique art.
Little Sweet Delusion as well as Covered in Cinders both follow famous fairytales. One tells the tale of a girl and a wolf in a forest, the other is about a poor girl with hidden beauty. These fairytales have been popular throughout their years, and in these adaptations the drawings and the stories follow the original work, but the element of horror brings these stories into the modern ages.
Eliza is a girl with many suitors – though her disturbingly-muscular grandmother always seems to stand in their way. However, one day, a boy named Wolf crosses her path. He’s interested in her too, but will he be able to get past the barriers that stand before his would-be love interest?
Akazukin Eliza and Little Sweet Delusions have an incredibly different feel - one being very ecchi and the other horror - but both are renditions of Alice in Wonderland. Those who want a different view of the fable should check these two out.
