Random Manga Theatre 39: She Can’t Bear It

Hit the “Random” button and see what comes up! In this feature, we take a look at whatever manga the Random Number God decides to throw at us and find out if it’s worth your time.

This time: Kanojo wa Sore wo Gaman Dekinai, by Iwashita Shigeyuki

Why do I always get the totally weird stuff? I mean, I guess it makes this feature somewhat more entertaining, but it’s a hell of a slog to read through some of this stuff. All too often I end up without much to say because the absurdity of the manga itself does most of the talking, and this week is no exception to that.

Our “hero” in this manga is a dude named Kusabana, who wears a dog suit at all times. Yeah. I can’t soften that blow any, because that is straight up his thing. He wears a big dog suit everywhere. And it’s not like it’s his creepy fetish or anything (although there are creepy fetishes in this manga too), he just was bullied for being overweight and now he wants to hide from the world. Except he’s still going out into the world, just in a big dog suit. I guess hikikomori don’t have to make sense?

Anyway, he’s a massive creep and is sniffing the class rep’s gym shorts (LIKE A MASSIVE CREEP WOULD) when he’s caught by the sexy new student teacher, Ayane. And of course, this being a creepy, messed-up sort of manga, she doesn’t immediately report him to the authorities and instead cuts Kusabana a deal: she won’t tell anyone, but he has to let her “sniffle” his body. And yes, they used the word “sniffle”. Not “sniff”, not “smell”, but “sniffle” of all things.

Anyway, you can probably guess where it goes from there. Stuff gets creepy and sexual in a way that made me pretty uncomfortable when I was reading this. I guess it has a “happy” ending, though?  I don’t even know at this point. Be very afraid. Please ignore the man in the dog suit and the creepy perverted teacher.


Verdict: Beware of Dog
Don’t read this. The art isn’t very good, the story is deranged, and about the only thing this series is good for is satisfying your own morbid curiosity. Even if this sounds like it’s right up your alley, surely you can do better.
