The subject of Bitten from Within series , is the problem of modern man.The beast biting the neck appears when an individual interacts with others (society).
Having relations with other people is an important part of living a fulfilling life; however, with social media easily accessible through a smartphone, an individual remains exposed to society even when alone and thus is constantly reminded of the presence of the Other and becomes acutely aware of how others perceive them. This is critical as
individuals are influenced by society and in turn, society is shaped by individuals.
Bitten from Within translated directly into Japanese also means bitten by oneself.Though the beast appears frightening, it is a severed head unable to kill the person whom it is biting. Whether to remove the beast or leave it be is up to the individual.
