The rope crawls all over flesh of a woman to immobilize the body artificially.

Yukimura focuses on tying her up which seems to last for good.

The nawashi (rope master) wields his rope with his sadistic energy fueled by his possessive but uneasy feeling for her.

For the master, rope is something more than a binding tool and kinbaku is not just a way to arouse sexual lust or gratify sadistic desire. It is the means for him to educe sultiness deeply hidden in heart of a woman.

The body is distorted by his rope and shines beautifully.

No one can do it but Haruki Yukimura.
