I got across this manga while looking for something new to read and after reading the synopsis I thought it would be worth reading, maybe because of its not too mainstream plot. At first I just saved it in my bookmarks and decided to read it sometime when I have the time. It stayed there for over a few months until I was having a bad night. I opened my pc and thought I'll give the manga a try..and I realized that it was a goldmine that I took for granted.


The story is a continuous struggle for all the characters especially Sei, the main read more

The issues portrayed in this manga are about finding a meaning and value of life by people who already attempted suicide. It's quite interesting in the way how mindset of such persons change in an environment different from everyday comfy life. On the other hand it also faces some of the more universal flaws in humans or human society independent of the environment they are put in.

There is a thought that life should have a meaning, a reason, so that a person would have solid will to live. That is the case in some of the moments you can find in this manga. But read more

More lie Suicide Story, as in the story killed itself

The art is not spectacular but the characters have distinguishing features from one another. Depth and backstories are given to most characters which are some of the more i teresting parts of the story.

The story starts out well and is reasonable intelligent despite the absurd plot, however this changes due all of the characters extreme niavete, and outright stupidity. The characters act as if theyare righteous and have high moral values, but actually choose to ignore rape, murder, slavery, cannibalism, and the like.

I initially enjoyed this manga early on read more

Jisatsutou, written by Kouji Mori (Holyland), is a masterpiece. Once again Kouji Mori captivates the struggles of the being human, through a simple yet effective narrative. Mori's biggest strength however is character growth, and like Holyland, the main character wanders through a psychological labyrinth created by our stifling modern world, trying to rediscover what he lost, and giving hope to what others are looking for. Jisatsutou also has wonderful pacing, where each chapter is filled with something meaningful, and exciting.

Please buy his works when they come out in your language. It is these kinds of magnificent authors that need more recognition in our consumer culture.
