Therefore, we recommend exercising your discretion while reading further. It is important to note that we do not endorse this publication in any way, and as such, we have chosen not to disclose its title. However, if you are curious about the contents of this manga, we suggest checking out Sydsnap’s comprehensive analysis of it on her YouTube channel as she goes into more detail on this book.
Issei Sagawa, from Kobe, Japan, engaged in unspeakable crimes while studying comparative literature in Paris. He committed the heinous acts of murder, cannibalism, and necrophilia, leaving a trail of terror and horror in his wake. His actions shocked and appalled the world, and his name became synonymous with the most despicable forms of human behavior. Despite the enormity of his crimes, Issei Sagawa managed to evade justice, leaving many unanswered questions and unresolved emotions in the minds and hearts of those affected by his actions.
According to Serena from ATI, Issei Sagawa’s fascination with cannibalism can be traced back to his childhood, when he witnessed his uncle and brother playing. As he grew older, his interest in the consumption of human flesh intensified, fueled by Western media portrayals of cannibalism. Despite his growing obsession, Sagawa managed to repress his urges for 32 years. However, his desires ultimately proved too strong to resist, leading him to move to Paris to study literature. It was there that he began to act on his disturbing impulses, attempting to commit crimes against prostitutes. These failed attempts only served to heighten his fascination with cannibalism, leading him down a dark and terrifying path that would ultimately result in unimaginable horror.
Issei Sagawa’s descent into depravity continued when he met a certain classmate, whom he befriended and ultimately murdered in cold blood. He used his manipulative skills to gain Renee’s trust before seizing the opportunity to end her life with a gun. Issei then committed the unthinkable act of cannibalism, consuming parts of her flesh and performing despicable necrophiliac acts. Incredibly, he kept frozen parts of her body to consume later, providing chilling evidence of his twisted obsessions, as reported by Ozbourne.
Despite his best efforts to cover up his crimes, Issei’s actions did not go unnoticed. A passerby noticed two suitcases dripping with blood in a park and reported the discovery to the authorities. Immediately after that, authorities took Issei into custody and sent him to a mental health facility. However, a legal loophole allowed him to admit himself to another psychiatric ward, which would ultimately result in his continued freedom.
Even after his extradition to Japan, Issei managed to evade justice and enjoy his freedom. Moreover, Kaplan from the New York Post states that Issei Sagawa has not only managed to evade justice but has also benefited from the notoriety of his crimes. In recent years, he has become a minor celebrity in Japan, appearing as a guest on numerous live shows and authoring manga books that graphically depict his horrifying acts of murder and cannibalism. Issei has even made appearances in soft-core x-rated reenactments, where he bit actors and further glorified his crimes.
The fact that Issei has been able to profit from his actions and gain notoriety as a result only serves to add insult to injury for those who have been affected by his crimes.
He even mentions in one of his interviews:
News reports of Issei Sagawa suggest that he exhibited a disturbing lack of remorse for his actions throughout his life. Rather than expressing any sense of guilt or sorrow for his heinous crimes, Sagawa seemed to consider discussing his atrocities as a normal and mundane activity. He even expressed a desire to repeat his actions before his death, providing chilling evidence of his complete lack of humanity.
The fact that Sagawa was able to live out the rest of his life without facing justice only adds to the sense of outrage and injustice felt by those affected by his crimes. As The Japan Times reported, Sagawa died at the age of 73, having never been imprisoned for his horrific acts of violence and cannibalism. Despite the passage of time, the memory of Issei Sagawa and the terror he inflicted upon his victims will continue to haunt and disturb people around the world.
According to The Japan Times, the manga gave gory details about his murder and cannibalism.
In a recent video posted by Sydsnap on YouTube, she provides an unsettling description of the manga. According to Sydsnap, also known as Sydney, the manga is written from the killer’s point of view, providing an immersive experience that is both disturbing and disgusting. Through the killer’s eyes, readers are exposed to his thoughts and emotions leading up to the murder, as well as his life after the heinous act.
What’s worse is that the manga delves into every gruesome detail of the killer’s actions, describing the sights, sounds, and smells associated with his despicable acts. The manga also provides a vivid and unsettling portrayal of the killer’s innermost thoughts, including every disgusting and prolonged thought throughout his horrific doings.
Sydsnap continues to recount the manga’s graphic and disturbing content, noting the killer’s explicit descriptions of his moments of cannibalism. She describes how the manga portrays the killer disassembling a certain part of a woman’s body and savoring its texture and taste in disturbing detail.
She adds that there is even a specific page that provides a vivid depiction of the killer’s intense anticipation and excitement as he prepares to consume a portion of his victim’s body. The manga even goes so far as to describe the killer’s thoughts of enjoying turning the woman’s body into a type of Japanese hot pot known as “shabu-shabu.”
The manga continues to depict the killer cutting off additional pieces and savoring them, all while expressing increasingly disturbing thoughts about cannibalism, saying how it is what he’s been waiting for a long time.
The manga features several distressing pages before transitioning to the killer’s arrest and subsequent imprisonment. The story details his life behind bars and his reflections on the events that led to his capture.
As the manga draws to a close, there is a page that focuses on the killer’s victim, Renee. Alongside a drawing of her, there is a simple but chilling word written beside her image: “owari,” which translates to “the end.” This stark and haunting page serves as a reminder of the tragic and senseless loss of life at the hands of the killer.
