soul eater 102

Welp those last few pages of this month's Soul Eater were creepy as fuck for me.

The sight of EYES EYES EYES EYES EYES DO NOT BELONG THERE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE is already unsettling for anyone, but for those of us who are familiar with drawings made by people with paranoid schizophrenia, this disturbing amount of EYES EYES EYES EYES EYES DO NOT BELONG THERE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE is simply CREEPY AS FUCK.

I’ve always had the suspicion that Ohkubo was either a mental patient once, or he’s had experience with them, judging by the story’s focus on “insanity” and the fact that the horror scenes in this manga are so raw, they’re not pretty or carefully staged, they’re downright scary because of how much fear they transmit and I refuse to believe that they’re carefully planned to look like this, they give the impression that this is what’s going through the author’s mind at some point, and I can’t take my eyes off of these scenes for a good while. Ohkubo may be an inconsistent shounen manga writer, but he sure knows how to paint paranoia.
