Inside Mari AKA Boku wa Mari no Naka is series written by Oshimi Shuzo, who is also the author of Flowers of Evil/Aku no Hana. It's a manga that I've taken an interest in due to its psychological and unique nature. If you've read Flowers of Evil, then you probably know what to expect with this manga.
Baka-Updates Description: The manga follows an "angel-like" beautiful high-school girl with a certain secret she has been hiding from everyone, and an idle hikikomori (one who normally avoids social contact) young man; the highlight of his day is seeing Mari at the convenience store. The story begins as Mari wakes up in her room, but something feel amiss about the room and even her own body.
At first you're going to think this is generic if you're used to the type of premise that is introduced in the first chapter, but then you'll realize that everything may not be as it seems.
You can find the latest chapter at Crunchyroll: www.crunchyroll.com/comics/manga/inside-mari/volumes but they only show the latest chapter for free. There are other sites that have the full manga available but once you reach the latest chapter, I recommend that you switch to Crunchyroll since they are the first to translate it and they are the official source in which you can read it due to being a simulpub type of release. I really recommend this manga to everyone who likes a psychological thriller and is generally into Oshimi Shuzo's type of writing.
I'd also like to note that Typical Manga Review has been covering Inside Mari since chapter 42, with the first video summing up what zeidoktor and I have thought of the series so far. ***shameless plug***
