Kasane (累 ──かさね──) by Matsuura Daruma • drama • psychological • seinen • supernatural • tragedy •
Beautiful people are loved and revered. They have everything they desire right at their fingertips… even if that beauty is a complete illusion.
Kasane is ugly. Not glasses-and-freckles ugly but truly, horrifically ugly – and the manga-ka holds no punches in drawing her as a horrifying monster. The irony is, she is the daughter of a beautiful, renowned actress. When her mother passes away, Kasane is left with a magical (or cursed?) lipstick that lets her temporarily steal the face of someone else by kissing them. Paired with the face and identity of a beautiful person, Kasane’s incredible acting talent is finally unleashed… but to what end? (source)
