As long as you drink this medicine, there's nothing to be scared! Now, let's challenge everything that made you afraid before! It's... a wonderful feeling!
This is told from the perspective of Wakui, a new transfer student to an all-girl school where everyone is energetic and fearless. But this is a creepy, artificial fearlessness induced by a pill. I think the rationalization the teacher uses falls into utilitarianism, in that it is willing to sacrifice a few in order to achieve the maximum amount of good for the many, but I'm not super confident about that assessment. It honestly almost feels like the teacher is primarily motivated for personal gain and fame--getting better results makes feir school more likely to get more applicants down the line, which ultimately gives fem more profits. I thought the interaction (or non-interaction) with the mom was the most important scene in the entire story and it made it hit that much harder. It's a solid story, dark in its themes, but also on the simplistic side (because of its length). The deep and pervasive shading and blackness creates a depressing and creepy atmosphere. There are large, squarish eyes with thick, mascara-laden eyelines. Some interesting angles and perspectives (like a fish-eye lens panel).
an interesting read, though lacking. Not my favourite one from the creator. This concept is very interesting so I think that a one-shot isn't really fit. I feel like there's much more to be explored, and if a series was made for this it could have potential. (Also, spoilers, but I didn't really like the fourth-wall break at the end, it felt out of place)
