Tomie Kawakami is a femme fatale with long black hair and a beauty mark just under her left eye. She can seduce nearly any man, and drive them to murder as well, even though the victim is often Tomie herself. While one lover seeks to keep her for himself, another grows terrified of the immortal succubus. But soon they realize that no matter how many times they kill her, the world will never be free of Tomie.  



I really surprised myself reading this entire book. 752 pages or so but I really did enjoy it.

This book is full of short stories that follow Tomie, a beautiful young girl that can not die. She is so beautiful that men love her so much they cut her into pieces. She drives them mad with her beauty and she knows it. She ignores them but she uses them to get what she wants done.

The only thing is when Tomie is chopped up, each piece of her creates a brand new Tomie. The world is over flowing with Tomie's by the time this book end. There were some stories I enjoyed more than others but with that being said, I still highly enjoyed them all.

The Art work for this Manga was very easy to read. You understood the story in each picture.

I do highly recommend this book. I will be checking out other work by this author and if I am not mistaken Tomie has been made in to a movie. So I may have to check that out as well. This was a fun side read.
