SynopsisThis manga is a story based on a thriller story written by Keigo Higashino. The main protagonist, the shy Jun Naruse, is a rather average guy who works for a electronic company and loves to draw. He falls in love with Megumi, whom he met at a shop selling drawing materials, and an intimate relationship develops. A few days later, the office gets attacked, and when the criminal tries to shoot a little girl, Jun saves her by jumping in front of her.
A month passes until he wakes up again and is told that half his brain was destroyed, and he only survived because someone donated half a brain. Everything seems to be fine. He quickly recovers and is happy, however, he begins to change... Is the donated brain the reason for this change? Or, is it just a side effect of the medicine?

When part of your body belongs to another entity, where does the line between you and this other existence get drawn? - That is the question Heads and Parasyte ask.
In Heads, its lead gets shot in the head and is saved from his coma by becoming the first ever adult brain transplant patient. In Parasyte, the arm of its lead gets replaced by an alien. In both the once calmer, more timid personalities of the leads gradually change until they no longer can be recognized as who they once were.
Heads in particular is recommended to those looking for psychological thrills with a difference. It deals exclusively with the small but significant differences that separate individuals, and how everything can change so easily.
Both are psychological manga where an outside force invades the main character.
both are very dramatic, and have a "drilled in the head of somebody"-setting, and the chara-development is interesting
but there are 2 big differnce:
1. heads is a love-story
2. in homunculus, the guy get a "sixth sense" after the operation, in heads he gets a "second personality"
both have deals with brain surgery and changed personality
Both are very dark and have blood/gore and shows the mental change of a person due to outside forces.
Both are very dark and show the mental change of one person. They almost have the same amount of chapters.
Although the two are not highly similar, the general premise of Heads is akin to particular situations in Franken Fran.
