Gonna post a randomly chosen collection of oneshots or individual chapters in a longer series that can still be understood.

Feel free to talk about or recommend any recent oneshots.

This first one is Beta!, by Urasawa Naoki (Monster, 20th century Boys), which was included in the collection, NASA.

For people who don't know, in a traditional Japanese family, the wife is expected to "husband" the husband's earnings. You see the archetype of the dominant mother controlling the purse-strings pretty often in comedies.

Much appreciated. Oneshot manga is among some of the best I've read.

I'm really partial to Rui Kyoko's oneshots, but I feel like they're pretty well read.

Cigarette Anthology MENTHOL has some cool stuff.

Next is one "Snow White," from Morohoshi Daijirou's Sneewittchen.

And before some kraut tries to tell me it's spelled "Schneewittchen," NO IT ISN'T. The original is a Low German tale.

If you want to know more about it, Shiji is THE classic when it comes to Chinese history. Pretty much defined Chinese historiography (how history should be written) all the way up to the modern era. The manga adaptation is basically Yokoyama drawing a lot of fun little stories taken from the book. Stuff about famous assassins, corrupt kings, loyal ministers, genious generals, and the like. Fun to consume in small amounts if you're a history fan.

I can tell that the same classical art piece that inspired Miura here directly inspired this work here
>>
>>151637185
Oh, it was Bosch. Ok.
>>
>>151637139
I think it's basically an allegory of how the most fertile and deep thinkers have an almost obsessive-drive to see beyond the surface (skin-deep level) and think about the foundational structures ("nudity") that underlie the universe and existence itself. This "nudity" rejects any sort of aesthetics on the skin-deep level and is thus seen as grotesque. I'm not sure if the "Mother of Grief" is the mangaka saying that this rejection/isolation necessarily leads to grief, or it's just a simple-minded insult made by those who value the superficial.

I might be missing something though, which is why I posted it in hopes of getting alternate interpretations.

>>
>>
>>151637119
It seems like his interpretation of Bosch's painting.

There seems to be the general theme that the fleshy body is inherently sinful. To be free of sin is to be modest and free of superficial desires. By pursuing deeper thought, weirdos to the general populace, the great thinkers have tried to unravel the universe and the dichotomy of good and evil. They inch closer to God than those in paradise, but I guess the true rectifier, equalizer, atonement, whatever you call it, is death. I'm not entirely sure what to make of the death and rebirth.
>>
>>151637589
Hmm, I don't think girl died though in the course of the story. She simply becomes another Mother of Grief that co-exists with her own mother, so I don't think the story is emphasizing the death/rebirth cycle. I agree with the rest of what you wrote though.

Death is a relative term. Liken the stripping of flesh to the stringencies of an ascetic and enlightenment.

Perhaps the grieving is in the unenviable curse of pursuing knowledge. Only in death do we have respite, but our dissemination of knowledge forces our children to bear our pains.

Goddamit, why did Baka & Gogh have to be about NTR?

Is there a name for a generally bony structure attached to an orb? It's always remarkably familiar.

>>151638033
It wasn't really about NTR.

It turned out that the parents were the strange ones. They probably felt guilty about their whole situation and projected it on their son
>>

Just let it go, man. The words NTR and cuck are so overused that they've lost any real meaning. Baka & Gogh was always about friendship from the beginning until the end, not romance. I love it because of that.
