Series: A Life Turned Upside Down: My Dad’s an Alcoholic

酔うと化け物になる父がつらい | You to Bakemono ni naru Chichi ga tsurai
Story & Art by:
Mariko Kikuchi


A moving autobiographical manga about her father’s alcoholism that inspired a critically acclaimed live-action film.

Mariko Kikuchi tells the painful story of her father’s alcoholism, and her own journey through guilt and self-blame to understand her father’s illness. She rejects the common belief that family members can and should be forgiven for anything they do, no matter how much harm they cause. This powerful, self-contained autobiographical manga began as a web series that went viral, and went on to inspire a 2019 film in Japan. Now this groundbreaking work about the ripple effects of addiction will be released in English for the very first time.
