Only in his late-thirties, Shuzo Oshimi is already considered a seasoned veteran of the Japanese comics community. Winner of the most important comics awards for newcomers, the Tetsuya Chiba Award in 2001, Oshimi has been penning quirky slice-of-life dramas now for over a decade for major manga publishers including Kodansha. After drawing nine series, Oshimi's star began to rise in 2008 with the release of his first hit, Drifting Net Cafe. This horror-themed homage to the legendary Kazu Umezzo work, Drifting Classroom, was adapted into a live-action series, and propelled Oshimi onto an international stage. He would soon reach new heights in 2009 with The Flowers of Evil.
As to date he has over 13 works which include serializations and art contributions.
High school student Yumeko Mochizuki is obsessed with guys’ you-know-whats...but it’s not about sex, it’s just a burning desire to see one in the flesh. Her insatiable curiosity leads her to join the art club in the hopes of finding an opportunity to do nude figure drawing, but when Shoichi, the only other member, tells her that it’s not going to happen, Yumeko takes matters into her own hands...!!
This early charmer from Shuzo Oshimi (Blood on the Tracks, The Flowers of Evil) turns the prurient schoolgirl manga on its head—Yumeko is driven by her own curiosity and desires regardless of what motivates the world around her, ultimately finding herself through art and transporting the universal experience of adolescent sexual curiosity into the realm of the avant-garde.
