Lenni Reviews: “Drip Drip” by Paru Itagaki

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

Mako Hiragi is a clean freak. So much so that even the sight of something she considers “dirty” causes her to have massive nosebleeds; including other people’s bodies. This makes it nearly impossible for her to have any relationships, much less intimacy. Desperate for human contact, Mako tries even the most insane things to finally have her happy ending.

This is fucking bananas and skip this one if you’re squeamish about blood. I always give weird stuff a try and it can be hit or miss because weird can’t carry an entire story on its own. What makes this good is Mako. She’s a fun character and her story arc is not about just the gushing blood, it’s about idealizing relationships and issues with intimacy. It’s not perfect but worth giving a shot. And it’s interesting to see Itagaki draw human characters, even if sometimes they do look a bit like her animal characters. 3.9 out of 5.
