Product Description

Review

'Cynical, provocative and gutsy, Pink is a tour de force of storytelling... Okazaki's lively illustrations zip off the page and into your brain.' --Neo Magazine

About the Author

Kyoko Okazaki, born December 13, 1963, is considered by many as one of the mothers of josei (women's) comics. Renowned for her mimimalist designs and tendancy to cover controversial themes, Okazaki cut her teeth in the world adult comics in 1980's.
While studying at Atomi University, Okazaki made her debut in Cartoon Burikko, an experiemental adult comic anthology primarily aimed at men. Okazaki would then turn her focus to women's issues. Focusing on the issues of contemporary young women, Okazaki never shied away from street culture, high fashion and drug use in her naratives. She would then take on her first a long-running series called Tokyo Girls Bravo; a rare comic to be published a fashion magazine. Okazaki has been in retirement since the end of the last century as she recovers from a life-threatening traffic accident.
Okazaki has received both the Japan Media Arts Award and the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Award for her work on Helter Skelter which was adapted into a motion picture in 2012 (now screening in the US in 2013).

I enjoyed the look and feel of this manga but I think there must be some translation errors as there were sentences which made absolutely no sense. There were also several of Japanese pop culture references which I didn't understand. The plot overall was interesting and unusual but I wasn't able to enjoy it fully, mainly due to the translation

I really liked this comic - I can see why it's regarded as such a classic in the josei manga world.

The story is about a girl who prostitutes herself so she can feed her pet crocodile, and about a 'manstress' novelist who is seeing her stepmother. There is also a clear reference to Snow White and the evil Queen.

A quick read, and it had a better flow than Helter Skelter, but wasn't as complex and didn't leave me questioning some of the themes. The ending is also a little disappointing, if only because it doesn't fully conclude the story. I would like a sequel!

The artwork is lovely though! I love Kyoko Okazaki's style!

Overall, an enjoyable read - would recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It! 28 April 2015
By Stephany Glass - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I Love This Book! I bought this book at Barnes and Noble while was with my boyfriend and family, I have to say I have been wanting this book for a very long time. It has sexual content and is rated 18+. The story line is very realistic, other than her having a pet Crocodile, It has to do with everyday situations. I Love It and recommend this book to anyone who is a big reader!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! Don't Hesitate to Buy It! 20 Mar. 2015
By LC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've never understood manga and thought I would never get hooked on them. This was the first manga I read. I spotted it in a comic book store with my boyfriend and it looked good so I decided to buy it online. It's a great book! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and it's geared towards older readers which is what made this easy to read for me. It's not childish and changed my views of manga completely. It's kind of a serious story with a message, which I like. It's not serious all the time and it's quirky which makes the story fun. Kyoko Okazaki's books are great and usually have a feminist message. I'm now reading Helter Skelter which is great so far. I hope that the publisher translates more of Okazaki's books because I'm hooked!
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful storytelling 22 Jun. 2016
By D. Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A beautiful tale of a motherless daughter trying to find her place and purpose in a cold and indifferent world. The ending was very sad and left me in tears. One of Okazaki'so best works, tells a story that touches on so many layers of life...love, hopefulness, heartbreak and tragedy. Wonderful art and story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really good read for realists, NOT fantasy lovers. 10 Feb. 2014
By Renee France - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wow, this book was SO realistic and entertaining. there's a few things that you just don't think would happen but does. c: If a painful plot twist is what you hate, this is NOT the book for you.
