An interesting look into gender and identity dynamics.


I don't even know why I picked this up but I can't say I was disappointed. Inside Mari was a captivating story about identity, framed and contextualized through a matrix of social identity vs true identity. There is a small twist half-way through that I will admit was a bit jarring. Maybe I wasn't paying attention because I didn't really see a build to it. That said, I am confident you will enjoy your time with this story.

An ambitious mystery worth reading!


Inside Mari is often overlooked in Shuzo Oshimi's strong catalog of work. However, Inside Mari is a mysterious story that covers thoughts on teen mental health, emotional abuse, and growth and deconstruction of one's identity.

Contrary to Oshimi's other works, Inside Mari is a slow-burn mystery that builds up to an interesting twist. How will Isao Komori get out of Mari's body? Read and find out!

Low-key body-swap mystery with a twist


This is an engaging body-swap mystery/character drama that is both slow-burn and intense. Not unlike Oshimi's other works, it takes a setup that sounds like a comedy when you describe it, but treats it as realistic drama.

Unfortunately, both of the things I liked most about it can't be explained in detail without spoiling it, so I'll just say: It's realistic and intense but not as dark overall as I was worried it would turn out to be, and the twist does something quite different with the body-swap genre.
