Little Miss Period

Manga published in book form, in magazine

KOYAMA Ken [Japan]


Little Miss Period is a characterization of a women’s menstruation that visits once a month. Through merciless means like a punch in the gut or taking blood with a syringe, she inflicts menstrual pain on women. These stories, while comical, are a sincere take on the range of emotions that women face during their periods. Well-loved by women who identify with these stories, and by men who are given a gateway to understand what women go through.
