Helter Skelter

Helter Skelter
  • Vol: 1; Ch: 9
  • 2003

Ririko is Japan's top fashion model; her image is on every magazine cover and in everyone's mind. But in private, Ririko is very unhappy, confused and lost. Overworked and tired, she turns to dangerous experimental procedures to maintain her youth and beauty. However, soon it's not enough and Ririko begins to fall into a downward spiral filled with lies, surgery, and blackmail. Just how far is Ririko willing to go to stay on top? And who is the true woman behind all the make up and rumors?

Another fabulous josei manga about body image issues in the modern woman. Helter Skelter is about the unrealistic and dangerous expectations of celebrities, and In the Clothes Named Fat is about a compulsive over-eater, her self-loathing, and harassment by society. If you're in the mood for a short but intense psychological josei story, I would definitely recommend either.

(Also, their art styles are fairly similar, and both have an ultra-bitch in a prominent role)


Both of these manga are dark and delve into the the psychology of women who want to be beautiful to the point of self harm. Body image, beauty and their costs are prominant in both manga. They're a good pair.

Another emotional manga about a woman/girl with extreme body image issues due to her environment. In The Clothes Named Fat is more realistic, and very bleak, whereas Iguana Girl incorporates some fantasy elements, and isn't completely depressing, but both are very good.
