This is a pretty interesting tale by Jiro Matsumoto, containing all of his trademark style and ambition yet lacking a little in the art, story and humour department compared to his other works. Yet the story is what makes the manga most interesting, even though it is a composite of conventional narrative beats, it’s still a strange animal of its own and remains unique compared to other manga.

Contrary to appearances this is not a sci-fi tale, but it is interestingly set during a vague war that Matusomoto continually returns to in nearly all of his manga, even throwing in a cameo appearance of two read more

Mikai Hoshi (meaning Uncivilized Planet) is not a sci fi manga, although it does take place in a futuristic world. It seems to take place in the ghetto of this world; the characters have less technology and modern conveniences than you or I, and the sci fi aspect of the plot mostly serves to give the characters false hope. It is an essentially human story, devoid of gimmicks, raw, and powerful.

Mikai Hoshi, like most Matsumoto Jiro manga, is much more than it appears to be at first glance and is far greater than it would appear to be on a surface level. It actually read more

It's the work of the same author, Matsumoto Jiro, and though it has a completely different plot, the mood and picturing technique is same fascinating. And of course the scenes of erotica. Some of them are really hard to digest. The same time, that is what creates charm of this series and makes it unfogettable.
on a far away planet strange things happened. then a one more strange thing happened. and another one in a next instant. and after a while everything seems to be engulfed in madness and fear.
Space Ship is quite a twisted story which is hard to bear any similarity with other mangas, though you can find it, if you try hard enough. and this similarity can be found among those ridiculous stories which draws in his mind a main hero of Uncivilized Planet. filled with action, death, sex, insanity in quick pace those creations storm through your mind leaving only questions and a desire to reread it in order to find some logic.
