Boku wa Mari no Naka is an intense psycholocical manga. The manga is written by Oshimi Shuzo who wrote Aku no Hana. I like this type of psycholog. Its about self acceptance and self finding. I believe that Oshimi sensei is one of the best mangaka in this genre. I enjoyed the manga every chapter had a mysterious element to it. The way the story built it was pretty great too. I believe that the manga is worth reading.

Overall Rating: 7/10
