SynopsisKirisaki Fumio's just a highschool girl in love...
...but then she finds out that the guy she's fallen for happens to love someone else.
...so she decides to go out and get a chainsaw.
And take it to school.
And then many things happen.
Saitama Chainsaw Shoujo is about a girl who got bumped by her boyfriend and then decides to commit a massacre in her school in order to kill him. And she will use a chainsaw to do so.
It’s pretty much like Columbine but with a chainsaw.
What bothered me with the story is that, Saitama didn’t have a real strong reason to commit such massacre.
Of course she’s shy and doesn’t have a lot of friends. But still I don’t think that justified such massacre and I was expecting some revelations about an obscure past or something like this.
This said, others characters attitude were really… strange.
I mean nobody’s scared when they saw a girl covered with blood and with a chainsaw. And all they do is to complain about how dirty her shoes are or fighting her like if they were zombies.
They’re really not taking things seriously and it’s really not like they’re scared of being killed.
It’s completely unrealistic but is it bad? It really gives a funny, horrifying and quite demented atmosphere which is what I expected from a manga like this.
The students really represent an obstacle for her and her determination is challenged.
Also her relation with her best friend is really well developed and challenged as well.
The art is really nice, there’s some blood and gore but not excessively.
The fights are really well done and quite entertaining.
Overall it was really a nice manga if you like this kind of horror story with people turning all psychotic.
I’m just a little bit disappointed because we didn’t have a lot of revelation about Saitama but it still good anyway.
This is a very surreal manga, right from the start, with a psychic friend telling the main character (Fumio) they were linked to the past. This part was not properly explained.
Gore, horror, tons of unexplained stuff, action scenes similar to Highschool of the Dead (beginning few chapters, remember?).
The story started off weird, with a psychic friend. Then a transfer student came and something strange happened with Fumio's bf. Then The psychic friend (Kaoruko) foretold that something was weird with the transfer student. Then Kaoruko became strange as well. Lol.
What was surprising too was the decision to cut down her bf in school. Lol. With a chainsaw. Not to mention it being quirky, it's extremely noticeable. Then the ppl at school act strange too and approach her, cut down etc etc.
The ending was perhaps the most confusing. Not only was stuff she did resolved (WOOT! She didn't really commit a crime! LOL.), it turned into some sci-fi alien abduction and the girl seems to have found her destiny. It was originally a love-bf-turned-hate-turned-violent story before the ending part in chapter 6. But strangely, the ending seemed to be partially fitting with Kaoruko's predictions about the transfer student.
Action scenes were sorta messy, with the blood everywhere. Impressive bloody scenes with a lot of impact, btu would be better if the people been killed had acted a bit more unwilling to rest in peace. Lol.
Some scenes were un-understandable.
Possibly one of the most confusing character cast in history.
Kaoruko apparently has a "higher voice" coming to her, and Fumio and her uses radio waves to search for them. Lol. I would think it is psychic ability. Not explained.
Fumio was strange, at first she seems mild, but after she lost her friend and bf she turned very "martial", very atheletic lol. Using a chainsaw requires a lot of strength and stamina, didn't think she looked like it.
The transfer student, apparently an alien or something, is totally mysterious. She has multiple abilities, all unexplained.
In short, the characters were all very strange. And what about "reincarnation" and 'protecting him from an assassin'? Totally have no idea what the scenes involving those words meant.
Simply horrible. Started off with strange melodrama. Then horrific massacre. Then ending. Which was totally "Dude, WTH?!".
God, wished I hadn't picked up this manga. I feel worse than I felt before I read this. Partially confused, partially horrified, and totally stunned/fazed.
@_@ Will there be a sequel? Wanna know what the "outside world" in the manga meant.
Any opinions about this manga or review? Pls write on my panel, need excitement >_ read more
