The story concerns a fat and ugly girl who turns into a beautiful and successful star, thanks to the beauty solution offered by a mysterious woman. Of course things eventually go wrong and a serial killer with body modification fetish is also involved in the plot. Very nice body horror entry in the anime genre and it echoes early David Cronenberg as well as Hisayasu Sato (NAKED BLOOD). Keep in mind that it contains violence, gore and nudity, so it's definitely not for kids. The animation is mostly 3D, which might annoy some viewers, but overall it's a really interesting anime thriller, because it's dark and violent visuals go hand-in-hand with some apt messages about physical beauty, greed and consumerism.
