In scenes like those above, with assailants & victims, I think people get off on (among other things) the tension of whom to identify with – I think that the flicker of identification from victim, to assailant, back to victim etc, creates a gripping and disturbing tension or suspense – especially since neither position offers any relief until the scene ends.

Narutaru is a fascinating and horrible series. I can’t get my brain around it, nor can I dismiss it.
