Jun Kumaori is a Japanese artist whose artwork has a distinct mangalike appearance and features expressionless schoolgirls. The stoic figures in these Jun Kumaori pieces add a more bizarre twist to the already-quirky images.

One of Jun Kumaori’s images is of a girl diving down into the water with a blank, unflinching face, as if she explores the depths of the sea fully clothed on a daily basis. Another picture includes a schoolgirl floating in the air surrounded by her belongings, unfazed by the storm that seems to be bearing down on her.

These Jun Kumaori pieces are intriguing, as they draw out the question and curiosity as to why the schoolgirls seem so uninvolved in their environments.
