If you are aware of fashion in Japan you must have seen Liliko's face. For the last few years she has been at the top of the modeling world, with her face and body promoting the biggest brands. But as everyone who is in this world admits, staying on top is a constant and never ending battle. There are always new faces introduced to the public. Younger models and new looks are brought into the fold every season. And keeping that position means learning to adapt and learning to cope with change.
To maintain her position Liliko has decided to under the knife. This is not her first go with this service. It is yet another round of plastic surgery, all done to keep herself looking young and vibrant. However in this case just a little nip and tuck was not enough. Liliko is bent on undergoing a full body makeover. From head-to-toe, every inch of her will undergo cosmetic surgery, and thus begins her madness.
In 2004 Helter Skelter was honored in Japan with the two top awards for Japanese comics:
Winner of the 2004 Japan Media Arts Award
Winner of the 2004 Osamu Tezuka Cultural Award
Content Warning: Although there's no direct violence shown, sexual abuse and violence are apparent. Includes body horror (like botched plastic surgeries).
It's a surreal disturbing tale on far one young starlet will go to grasp the perfect beautiful "body", and establish her worth as a product of pop culture. No matter what the cost and the devastating self destructive consequences that fall on her and the people around her.
