100% Perfect Girl Manwha — how low will it go?
So here’s what urks me about “100% Perfect Girl” and Wann in general: what the heck is with the extremely possessive feelings that all of the main male characters feel towards Jay and why it is that these men only know how to express themselves in an aggressive and violent manner towards Jay. For a story that is supposed to be a love story, there is no love in it. Most of the scenes that involve sexual activity are pretty close to what is considered “rape” in the US. Rape is never and act of love, so in reading this manwha it’s very hard for me to like any of the male characters. They all come off as thuggish and cowardly — very anti-male. And then there’s poor Jay who can only be kind, get kidnapped, be nearly raped and wait for her prince to come rescue her followed by the prince, himself, attempting to force his way on her. So I wonder what Wann will do with our “hero” , “Jarte,” who has once again rescued Jay, who is naked and crying on a bed after waking up with that arm’s dealing guy trying to have his way with her. Will Wann let the healing begin with a hug and “let’s take you to sanitarium?” Or better yet, an I’m sorry, now I will send you back home and support you for the rest of you life as penance for ruining your life? Or will Jarte try to take advantage of Jay while she’s naked and mentally fragile.
I quit buying this manwha in book form during the Capelletti incident because it didn’t square with my values and I don’t want to encourage the US publisher of this series to continue publishing and distributing this misanthropic sh*t. I will admit to hypocrisy, though, since I still pay a quarter per chapter to read it online. I don’t read this series for fun, though. I read it because I’m curious as to how low this tawdry tale will go.
