Hello! Thank you for buying my book "Henshin" or "Metamorphosis". Some of you might not recognize the English title, since it was given the subtitle "Emergence" when it was published in Japan. I originally had Kafka in mind when I thought up the title, and "Henshin" is the Japanese title for Kafka's story. I was pleasantly surprised when Fakku! picked up on this and so we agreed to make this the title for the English release.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my little story. It is a departure from my other published works, but it may be familiar ground for people who have followed my self-published doujin titles. I'm a fan of sad stories and I hope you can agree that not every story needs a happy ending.

Thank you. I cannot say this enough. I hope you will continue to read my other books and check out any future works to come!

And remember kids, Say No to Drugs!

The Finale chapter was really hard to get through, I had tears welling up in my eyes. I have read a good deal of sad, depressing, and downright disgusting H doujin & manga but this actually lured me in to caring about Saki's feelings and goals. Excellent work, I am going to be watching your work for a long time after this.

I love the artwork, the translation is also very clean, and the story is dark and depressing, just how I like it.

This is a masterpiece! The level of despair you feel as the book comes to its end intensifies so much it's almost unbearable. For the longest, I was in denial about the ending. But after reading your comment, I can finally get some closure. Thank you for all the great work!

This entire book was amazing from start to finish. It's refreshing to have such an engaging story woven so well into the genre of hentai and doujin. Keep up the amazing work man I'll definitely be buying more books from you in the future.

This is genuinely the first time I saw hentai as more than just hentai and started reading it because I was so engrossed by the story. I love how each passing page shows Saki falling deeper into this dark hole when she started so high up at the beginning; "Metamorphosis" is a perfect title for this book. Can't wait to see more!

ShindoL I found your work very powerful in addition to your art style being very compelling. Well worth paying for! Tragic, dark stories can often be the most poignant, meaningful and realistic. I enjoyed it far beyond any kind of simple piece of pornography. Please continue doing what you are doing :)

Thank you for your hard work. Your art style is fantastic and as a emerging writer myself, I agree with your statement that not every story needs a happy ending. Keep up the awesome work and I can't wait to see what the future holds for you!

Mm. Most of my favourites by you have at least a touch of melancholy. Fragile and Tough comes to mind.
But we shoud be thanking you.
Somehow, you being inspired by Kafka is not at all surprising.
Stay busy, man.

I'm pretty late to the party, but man this was good. Not like a happy story kind of good, but just a story where things don't work out. I felt so bad for Saki, and can only hope that she can find that ending sequence in her next life. This feeling is terrible, but its definitely due to how well done the story was. Thanks for the experience, but i'll probably stick to chapters 1-5 if I actually need to get off.

holy shit..

just when you think itll get better. its gets worse.

and then you think it couldnt get much worse... and it gets worse.

and then you think, im kinda hoping she just dies at this point, i dont want anymore suffering... and it gets worse.

and then you think, alright, i cant masturbate anymore, this is making me feel disgusting... and it gets worse.

and then its gets worse, and worse, and worse.

and then its pleasant all of the sudden. but kinda makes me question if that pleasant ending is even real or not. i dont even know at this point...

i really hope its real. i need that ending to be real.

This was rough to get through. Made me want to puke because it's so real. Your art helps the reader keep going. I wasn't able to get off on it, witch sucks because of how beautiful some of the frames are, but I also feel like it's something I should encourage others to read. Not why I bought it, but, worth the purchase. That's really the only way I can describe the experience.

NOT for me... holy cow i couldnt even finish it legitimately, i was forced to stop reading and just started flipping through at several parts and the closer i got to the ending the closer i got to slitting my throat(realy suprised i didnt after that ending). we need a tag for Dark story and tragic ending as well as a tag that says solid story or something that lets you know the whole book is one big story and not a bunch of little ones, and maybe a rape tag too. had i known all those tags were 100% all the time and getting worse with each page im sorry but i wouldnt have bought the physical copy, might not even the digital i mean, this is SO not for me, im sorry. the art was nice which is hard for me to say cause i didnt agree with what that art formed on each page. If i could request one thing from the shindoL it would be a short series of every jack ass in that book getting their heads bashed in with a variety of weapons

Just finished reading this work. I don't know what to say or feel. Expecting one thing and receiving something completely different. At no point could I put this down I read on and on and on. This isn't something I expected from my first purchase but damn am I glad! The art style and story were truly sensational and didn't follow a cliche. It forced feelings out of me and oddly left me inspired. I'm an instant fan, thank you so much for this and I look forward to future work!

Read this one last night. I thought my heart was ready for it, but it wasn't. Today I felt dumb for reading something so devastating this close to Christmas. It's the season of cheer, and I read a story that ended up being devoid of any light and hope. But now I feel differently. Someone on this site called this story a True Greek Tragedy, I agree. I often wondered why the ancient greeks liked such depressing stories, what I was told was that it made them appreciate their own lives more. That's what I'll do. I'll appreciate that I have a home and a family. I'm alive, and I'm not alone.

Goodbye, Saki-chan.

Maybe I'm a sadist or a masochist, maybe both. But really, this wasn't so bad for me... Maybe I'm just desensitized?...
The only parts that kinda got to me was when the mom starts blaming Saki for the father's actions. Oh, and that last bit where she is all broken up and looking at the mirror fixing her hair and putting on her glasses as if trying to go back in time, at least in spirit.
That ending where she is imagining what could've been was a bit hard too...
*sigh* 😐

First time in a long while I have read a Hentai manga with genuine interest in the characters and genuinely wanting to know how it was all going to turn out and not just to fap. Vanilla has its uses and upsides but in my view only true darkness can offer a compelling story like this.

Dear people thinking of buying this I wish to tell you this warning, this books isn't good for masturbation where the first couple chapters may be it then becomes a dark spiral of reality and the horrors that people are capable of especially the last couple chapters I suggest this if you do not mind a dark story that is very disturbing but that's my suggestion

The way I see it, the most important aspect of works like this, about abused women, sex slaves, drug addicts and the like is how it *isn't* really fiction. There are plenty of real life women with stories just like Saki's. People should think about this before laughing at the homeless and judging addicts like too many people do.

Think on this: I'm here. I'm sane. I have a job. I write.

What happened to me happened. But I'm still here. And many of the people I've mentioned went on to have lives, families. I know a woman right out of Carn's 'broken girl' stories who now has three kids, a husband that loves her.
Also, remember this. There's no innate justice. There's just us. So be good to each other.

Jacob & Fakku in general, thank you for bringing this book to us. This was one of the most difficult books to get through that I have ever experienced. I say that as someone who would follow posts from LWB, yeah I know about it, but this book in particular was so visceral. I made it to the end, but this book falls into the category of, do not recommend to people you aren't certain will be okay with it. So good job taking the stance of I want to bring people illustrated penises that they want to see, and if they don't wont this particular penis they don't need to keep it.

Art imitating life, the most gut-churning example of how "wonderful" people can be to each other. ShindoL (fantastic art by the way), I am ready to start thoroughly hating humanity, lead the way.

Thump... Second time my heart skips a beat for this book. I've been waiting for well over a year and increasingly after the announcement. It's already infamous.
The (back) cover alone is chilling and thought provoking. ShindoL's art is bubbly and divine which increases the contrast with the stories he tells. I hoping for this to be every bit as soul-crushing as I'm expecting it to be!
