At the National Local Mascot Festival, children all across Japan can meet their favorite local mascots. But as the festival gets underway, it becomes clear that what's inside these costumes aren't people - they're something much darker, with a taste for human flesh. Amid the chaos spreading through the entire country, Keigo Ayahara, his little brother Makoto, and his friend Ako must now fight for their survival and their humanity.
Decent gore manga but nothing special a lot of it aspects needed to be writen into more detail. Ending was a little too sudden as well. And characters went here and there way too fast to like or dislike any of them. At least monsters had all unique abilities.
Pygmalion is a gory horror manga in which mascots turn into monsters and start killing everyone in some big cities in Japan. It swiftly becomes one of the many trope-filled splatfest manga out there, but it's not unenjoyable. There's at least a certain degree of tension as to which characters will survive, the protagonists aren actuallly sympathetic and not stupid idiots and the progression of reveals regarding the "mystery of the mascots"is actually handled well. While it felt kind of rushed, one could argue that this works in the manga's favor: the quick pace is a lot better than having things drag on, and it smoothly goes from one more exciting scene to the next. As for the bad points: the ending is really cheesy, one of the main antagonists is really dull and has a dumb motivation, and some of the elements (such as rape-mascot...) are wholly unnecessary. The art is nice and clean, and the gore scenes are also pretty impressive. Here are some samples (without gore scenes): Someone looks hungry Overall: Pygmalion is a short but enjoyable horror manga. While not exactly high literature, fans of the genre may still want to check it out.
