drama mystery seinen


Suzuki is a troubled boy. He's lived with uncaring foster parents for most of his life, alienated from the other kids at his school, owner of a cynical, unhappy mentality. Komatsuzaki is a violent, unpredictable bully whose head trauma causes him to act in mysterious, inexplicable ways. Arakawa is a no-nonsense, normal girl who pines after Komatsuzaki but can never have him. A teacher with just one working eye. A mother who committed suicide. A daughter in an endless coma. Attempted rapes, murders, extortion, sexual deviance, and a freakish explosion in the butterfly population. All of these elements are whirled together in a story spanning 10 years, a tale of blackness, pain and apocalypse. And maybe just a bit of hope and redemption. It's a spiritual cross between the misanthropic suburban malevolence of Kyoko Okazaki's Rivers Edge and the eerie mysticality of Donnie Darko.

"The butterflies are coming to take me away.
They are taking me away to eternity."

Weird, violent, deviant, thought-provoking, beautiful.

Asano Inio has amazed me a couple of times before with is work for various reasons. He has created highly character driven and very realstic stories such as Solanin and Oyasumi Punpun, but Nijigahara Holograph is truly something else from everything I have encountered before. It's something that's difficult to understand as a whole. Personally, I think it's gotta be read twice at least to actually appreciate the manga. This manga simply fascinated me, after I re-read it. I discovered so many things that I didn't notice the read more

Same author and a very similar feeling to it.
Both are by the same author, and have the lives of a troubled young boy play a large part in the story. Both stoies have a very violent theme aswell. They both have a similar feel to them.
