horror mystery psychological seinen


The main character is a detective, Kazuhiko Amamiya, suffering from multiple personality disorder. Starting out as a violent detective series with a twist (the twist being the variant personalities that take over Detective Amamiya at various intervals), the series evolves into an exceptionally complex and involved sci-fi conspiracy story.

This is not for the squeamish, the easily frightened, or those looking for a light manga to read. It is dark and often brutal. The complexity of the plot had me wondering if I should be taking notes, and I actually did end up writing down some details, like the protagonist's personalities, to keep track. That said - if you like both psychological horror and violence, this fits the bill well.

Something needs to be said about the nature of the crimes. These are not straightforward homicides. They are grotesque and morbidly fascinating. Oftentimes the victims are tortured in the most creative ways before being killed. read more

MPD-Psycho is one of the most sickest,darkest,mind-shocking,breath-taking,eye-popping-from-your-head thing I've read in a while.And I'm speaking softly now..

What do we have in MPD?
We have a detective,who is also a killer,or maybe vice of versa,a killer who is a detective.It's hard to tell.One of the great pluses of this manga is it's complexity,where the reader must understand the way of the twisted killer mind,sometime's this bring's you in the darkes't corner's of your conscious.Creepy.

The artwork..the artwork is great,one of the few mangas that actually has Japanese citizens looking Japanese!(seriously,this one is rare)
The art is defined by its use of simple, clean lines that bring's the needed read more

User Recommendations

Mind games, Machiavellian methods, and mass murders. If you found either of these titles interesting, you might want to also try out the other one since both involve unorthodox detectives hunting down serial killers. However, MPD Psycho is definitely not for the faint of heart with its sexual imagery, explicitly gory death scenes, and mentally unstable characters.
They're both about serial murder cases and someone who solves them. Also both are gory and show mutilated corpses. However, MPD Psycho has a more complicated story.
