This is my first review on this site so I thought that I could start of with something small like this particular manga called "Killing Morph".
The story revolves around a girl that gets haunted by a dude that kills people very violently and later even gains some strange superpowers for no real reason. Throughout the story tough she slowly grows more and more confident to overcome her fear and the rolls of hunter and prey get switched. Overall pretty basic stuff with an absolutely horrible ending that just kind of happens. I appreciate sublety and scenes that get conveyed through emotions rather than text
but this just felt kind of unfitting. Especially since the manga often shows lots of gore which brings us to the next category.
Easily the best part of this manga is the art. Gore is expressed in much detail and the characters aswell as the general scenery look really good. There just isn't much to say about this part. Simply really solid and consistent stuff which sadly can't be said about the next category.
There are about 3, arguably 4 characters in this whole manga. Everyone else simply exists to get killed of. Not that I expected more but still kind of disappointing. You have the main-character that actually gets a bit of development unlike everyone else. Then there is also the killer that kills people because... He enjoys it I suppose. Very deep. Then theres another girl that obviously isn't as nice as she first seems. And then there is Ishigami from Kaguya-Sama who is depressed and remains depressed.
While the things above may seems a bit harsh and negative, they still didn't stop from enjoying this manga at least to some degree.
Don't expect anything worthwhile except for the art. Everything else is just downright bad but I think that if you simply enjoy cardboard-characters getting brutaly killed like I do, you will have a somewhat enjoyable experience. Not to mention that Killing Morph is very short and can be read through in about 90 minutes so atleast looking into it shouldn't be too much of a hassle.
