I am so incredibly confused on this plot.

This manga is the only one where I feel as if you should write down the events of each chapter after reading them.
Spoiler

And this doesn't have a romance tag because?

Should I just quote my previous comment again? 

Yume, NO!

Damn you, Maria!

I'm beginning to love this Utsutsu's "child"

Time to feel more and more sorry for Yume...

Is there a single person in that family without a messed up life, whose only way forward seems to be down? The mother is probably the one closest to a stable existence.

Spoiler

Time to feel more and more sorry for Yume...

I continue to be astounded by how much fucked up shit the author manages to put into every chapter.

I'm starting to believe that I don't even need to write another comment for this manga, and instead just repost this one since it succinctly describes my experience of Pupa.

Maria best girl. It takes a special kind of insanity to impregnate yourself with a cosmic horror and turn into something that wouldn't be out of place in Prototype.

This is disgusting.

Can I have more?

Getting Saya no Uta vibes again what with wanting to cover everything in flesh and all...

The artist's inspiration, perhaps?

I think I'll just pretend that Utsutsu and his sister have become mentally Ill due to sustained abuse, and are therefor suffering from hallucinations. They are currently at a psychiatric hospital receiving whatever care they can get, while the father is being charged for multiple counts of assault and child abuse.  Somehow such a story feels nicer than the one presented by the manga, which just shows how fucked up "Pupa" is.

 

Edit: Changed some spelling, since the comment was originally written on a phone.

Meh, with each new chapter I feel more like the author is making things up on the go.


Well... They are the author after all.

"Please, eat my meat!"

 

Best pick-up line, ever.

AAnnnnnndd the chapter order is broken.

Utsutsu is truly the brother of the year.

...

TLDR: What I was and am trying to say under all this mumbo jumbo is that the line "but for all intents and purposes, she's his mother." is much too inclusive, the clone thing doesn't change much.

The context in sirflimflam's first statement was genetics.  Hence, it was implied that "for all intents and purposes, she's his mother." refers to genetics.  The clone issue is very important as determines the level of genetic similarity with her brother and the likelihood of negative effects resulting from inbreeding.

 

Having a child with your mother is worse genetically then having a child with your sister.  Moreover, if the brother had a child with his sister it would be genetically the same as having a child with his mother  based on the information we have.  Context is everything, keep an open mind, that is all.

No, biologically, she is genetically identical to his mother. Memory or feelings have nothing to do with your DNA. She's absolutely his sister (probably at best half sister, since she shares none of her 'father's genetic makeup), since she grew in and was birthed from their mother, but she's a genetic clone of his mother down to the smallest detail. Sure it's not like she's literally his mother in every sense of the word, but that's not what I was saying at the time. 

I fail to see what the 'no' is pointing to, most of your comment is basically what I was saying. I agree that she is genetically identical to his mother, I was just pointing out that she still isn't his mother, just a genetic clone birthed by his mother and therefore as you said his half-sister. While memory and feelings don't have anything to do with DNA they have a lot to do with identity and that's what I was talking about there.

 

Basically was saying that even though she's genetically his mother that doesn't influence her familial relationship with him at all, at least in this situation. She's still similar yet different to him genetically as is the case with all siblings. The weird relationship is probably the mother but that's also mainly because of the situation of giving birth to a clone.

 

Though as I said that would make the ship the other guy was talking about weird if it came to children, but other than that its eh, not really important.

 

TLDR: What I was and am trying to say under all this mumbo jumbo is that the line "but for all intents and purposes, she's his mother." is much too inclusive, the clone thing doesn't change much.

No they're still siblings. She has his mother's genetic code for her body but she is still a copy and still 'produced' by the mother and has none of the mother's memories or feelings, and therefore still her child. Even if it was an unwilling pregnancy.

For biological intents and purposes even, she is still his sister, just a sister who inherited her mother's traits monstrously perfectly, on the outside. The inside of course is still the monster she is.

It's technically even worse now if you consider genetics. Instead of being just his sister, Yume was basically a genetic clone of his mother. The monster copied his mother's genetic code in its entirely to produce the human form Yume. So they grow up as siblings, but for all intents and purposes, she's his mother.

Incest? where? They just show family love to each other, that is normal

Well it wouldn't say normal. This familial love goes REALLY deep but that IS what it is as you said. Familial love.

and i thought deadtube and wolfsmund were edgy.

The other people maybe but I wouldn't consider the brother and sister 'edgy'. A sad love story or messed up attatchment but not 'edgy'.
