Folktales in manga.

I think the Monkey King captures the "true" meaning of the Journey to the West really well.

Ever looked back on the tales in your culture? As a kid they seemed strange but entertaining, right?

Well it only takes one reading now to spot, 3 different kinds of rape, 17 forms of backstabbing and betrayal, and 23424 forms of mutilation and gore.

Any folk-tales in your culture, that would make fine blood drenched-mangas of horror?
