This is a very nice series of stand alone short stories.
From the inside cover:
" In these haunting tales, dolls- human-link androids - have an uncanny way of working themselves into the lives of their masters: A woman develops an unusual coloseness to a doll that she takes beyond the grave... A man wants to make his doll into the perfect human lover... a father buys his son a doll to help him get over the death of his mother. 'Doll' examines the question of what it means to be truly human."

It's also rated "OT - 16+" for the graphic sexual content. FYI.
I really like the artwork, it's very clean, and yes, the "dolls" are dressed up quite a bit.

This has some pretty deep and heavy stories, but it makes for a good manga. Not too bad in the art department, either.
