Ugh....this is going to be tough for me. Bear with me. There may be spoilers ahead as well.

Anyway, found a manga today called Life Is Money. Basic premise: 10 people have to live in a "prison" of sorts for 10 days and survive. The winners get a whole ton of money; the fewer winners there are, the more money they get. Physical violence against one another is prohibited, but everyone wears an armlet that can detect mental stress levels and gives a lethal injection if said levels get too high. The idea is for the participants to kill one another through mental warfare. (Put on your serious hat)

Fuyumi is one of the participants. She's quite attached to her doll, Chappie, and is participating in the game to pay for a sex change operation for herself. I don't wanna spoil TOO much but...ugh, I almost cried. I'm not going to sleep well tonight. >_> In my opinion, it's more horrifying than what happened to Norio.

Bad stuff aside, Fuyumi is awesome due to her fashion sense, twintails, and neurotic behavior. Haven't been able to find a single piece of fanart, though (not even just of her, but of anything to do with the entire manga), so I'll just be posting manga pages. Again, I'll avoid stuff that's too spoilery.

Christ, it's like seeing myself in a manga.

Anyone who wants to read the manga can do so on MangaFox, or check out the scanlators' site here: http://shedgescans.weebly.com/

Context: In Life Is Money, every day, each remaining participant rolls a die. 5 sides of the die each represent a different sense: sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch. Rolling one of these causes the participant to be deprived of that sense (blindfold for sight, nose plug for smell, soundproof headphones for hearing, gag for taste, and an injection that paralyzes one from the neck down for touch). The 6th side is spirit; rolling spirit will return you to normal (or do nothing if your senses are all intact). Touch is a little bullshit.

Think I'll finish up with this one.

I'll keep my eyes open for fanart and whatnot.

>> No.61996   [Delete]   [Edit]

This is Non-H right? Is there at least some ecchi scenes? A trap in a prison has too much potential, I don't like being teased. The synopsis sounds interesting, no physical violence so you have to troll the fuck out of each other. If it's an all male prison.. Damn, just think about how she can use dat ass to her advantage!

>>61996 I'll clarify a few things...

It's a "prison" in the sense of a confined area. The 10 participants, as well as the people in charge of the whole game, are the only ones there. The head honchos can come and go (they have a control room of sorts where they watch the events), but the participants are confined to the areas shown in this pic. The salon is only accessible when rolling the die each day. Each participant has their own private quarters, and the other areas are common areas.

As far as ecchi scenes...well, not much. There's one scene involving Fuyumi that could be...considered...ecchi, but it got dark fast and terrified the shit out of me. I don't want to go into details, but it does not end well. It shook me up so bad that I kept one of my knives next to me when I went to bed last night. Said event happens in chapter 9.

As far as gender balance, the people in >>61983 are the participants. There's Fuyumi, plus 2 other women (XX chromosomes variety), plus 7 men. Pretty easy to tell who's which in that pic just based on their clothes.

...Oh, and one of the guys looks like Gintoki.

B-But... it looks so lighthearted! >>61989 Look at that happy face he's making. Surely you have to be joking.

I encourage you to read it and see for yourself. "Normal" folks won't be affected nearly as bad as me, most likely. Chapter 9 involved Fuyumi experiencing two of my biggest personal fears. The fact that I see so much of myself in Fuyumi didn't help. ;_;

Just for reference: I'd like this thread to be around for....let's say, until this Friday, before we start spoiling major plot things. Just to give whoever's interested a chance to read it for themselves.

Here's one more random page.

A sample of things to come. Fuyumi wears this outfit in the early parts of the manga. Had to guess on the colors since I only had black and white images to use as references.

Edit: derp, uploaded wrong version.

I wanted to make a thread for her too but never got around to it. This is much better than how I would've explained it anyway...
Her story was seriously tragic. I was really pissed about what happened ;_; Manga is a decent read.

Right, spoiler time. Gonna take the opportunity to test spoiler tags, see if they work.

Edit: they do not work, so uh....close your eyes if you don't wanna get spoiled!


In the end, Fuyumi dies via mental stress induced lethal injection. It's brought about by a masked creep who breaks Chappie (the doll), cuts Fuyumi's clothes apart, and then cuts most of her hair off, after which Fuyumi has a BSOD in which she remembers most of the bullshit she had to put up with just because she was a trap. Fuyumi was helpless the whole time, because she was paralyzed from the neck down as a result of rolling "Touch" on the sixth sense dice that day.

Pic related to some of the bullshit Fuyumi had to deal with.

Sum moar Fuyumi sprites. Had to guess Chappie's colors too. As for the B.A.R., I just kinda had it lying around.

>> No.62157   [Delete]   [Edit]

I'll have to look into this manga. I've been looking for manga/animu that actually do more with the whole tg and/or "trap" then just lolguysinskirts.

I'd recommend Ai no Shintairiku as well, if you haven't already checked it out. It's right up your alley. http://www.mediafire.com/?zgtm4xjvwnn

(I pulled that link off of Google, hopefully it's complete)

Pic unrelated.

Since some stupid spambot bumped this thread, it's worth mentioning now that this manga has ended at 15 chapters.

I'm still sad about Fuyumi-chan ;_;

Pic unrelated, because lack of relevant art. Not even 虚宮 富由美 on Pixiv brought back anything.

>> No.64689   [Delete]   [Edit]

Why do I get a strong "Hirano" feeling while looking at some of the characters? I haven't read a chapter yet but looking at the few pages posted here makes me think that Fuyumi might have found his source in Rip Van Winkle, or the tubby guy in the Major, don't get me started on the glasse wearing guy it's Walter/the younger Valentine brother being pissed of at Alucard.

Spoiler alert I guess for narutaru..

"In my opinion, it's more horrifying than what happened to Norio."

Wasn't Norio brutally raped and stabbed in his genitals until he died from blood loss? I fancy that's worse than having your hair cut off and die from a lethal injection :P

>> No.64713   [Delete]   [Edit]


(Semi-spoilers ahead. Gonna keep it vague, mainly because I've not seen/read all of Narutaru. Don't have ALL the context.)

The reason is that although Norio's death was more physically brutal, Norio could have saved himself if he chose to. However, his means of doing so was pre-occupied helping a friend, and he chose that friend's safety over his own. It was one of those heroic sacrifice things.

Fuyumi, on the other hand, was completely helpless due to the paralysis, and slowly went insane as her feminine traits were destroyed one by one. She couldn't have saved herself even if she wanted to.

I guess it's more about helplessness and loss of femininity being two of my biggest fears. Although Fuyumi's death in itself was more merciful, the events leading up to it were the frightening part.

You were not wrong, Kiruka, it is disturbing. Not phisically, but imagining her psyche slowly shattering by being exposed to so much trauma in succession so quickly is quite depressing. The grotesque drawings and gratuitous gore didn't help either.
