Miu Nakamura!

I just finished the Tomie manga series yesterday and IT WAS SO COOL, so I'm glad I found this awesome blog. I hope you have a good day! ~tomie for queen~

thank you! i’m so happy people are still discovering tomie even though it’s been nearly 30 years since the manga was released, and it wasn’t all that popular back when it came out. i think the new generation is really bringing tomie back to life, pun intended :)

I've been thinking about this for awhile, would Tomie be considered a succubus?

Nope I don’t think so, that’s Jennifer’s Body. There are some elements Tomie shares with a succubus but other than that not really. She isn’t really a type of “demon” that already exists in fiction or religions, she’s a lot more ambiguous than that.

has tomie ever cried? I feel very bad for her sometimes, although she does evil things, I wish she could feel true love or companionship with people, but I guess that's not what she's here for.

i don’t remember her crying in the mangas. she’s been going through these things for a really long time (since the meiji era!) so i’m assuming she’s become numb to all the murders and betrayals she keeps experiencing. she does cry in one of the films though, tomie: beginning, and gives a really sad speech about her life (lives) but then it turns out she was just making fun of another girl so there’s that.

i do feel bad for her too, she’s a really tragic character when you think about it. it’s as sad as it is scary.


Hi there! I wanted to stop by and share you a specific picture that I had came across when I was searching images of Tomie on Bing. I came across this image long ago and thought that she resembled Tomie so closely well. I wanted to ask you, base on your knowledge of Tomie and your profession of this Blog, have you came across this image before and if so do you know the sources so I can look more into it?

Yes I have come across this image a couple of times. It’s from a Chinese girl’s cosplay of Tomie, which was posted here originally, there’s several other outtakes of this particular cosplay on there too. It’s a really good one.
