Suicide Island is a "philosophical and spiritual auto biography"... Please bear with me

The "I don't belong" or "I don't fit anywhere" theme is a cliche by this point, but suicide island executes on it in a way Ive never seen before.

The main character, after realizing he doesn't belong in his social circle and society as a whole, tries to kill himself, and fails (nothing new at this point) but then he is sent to an isolated island with fellow "suiciders"

Every other story would use this as a new chance to find a place to belong, and this is precisely what the main characters tries to read more

Warning: This review contains some major spoilers, PLEASE DON'T READ IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED

While a work can be considered perfect for some people, that doesn't mean it can avoid critiques from others. That's why I will dedicate this review to critique this manga.

Suicide island, is a no man island where the Japanese government decided to forsake their own suicidal people because the gov budget can't support them no more. While it has a simple beginning, the way how it decides to describe the people who were stranded in the island is in a way how majority of suicidal people (or even depressed) read more

Coming from a fan of Mori Koji's Holyland (favorite of mine) I expected Jisatsutou to be a great manga, but unfortunately the symptoms that slightly hampered my enjoyment of Holyland (still a favorite) killed Jisatsutou completely. You might as well say it plagued the manga completely turning it into a dying zombie waiting to be killed.

Story 3/10

The story starts with our mc attempting suicide but ultimately failing to do so; He then wakes up in an island with a group around him most of them consisting of people who failed to commit suicide as well. The bad pacing of the story begins at read more

Heavy incorporation of author's own sensibilities into an already sensitive topic makes this a questionably preachy journey. As far as believability is concerned it suffers from fluctuations; at some points the raw realism resonates stupendously only to be dulled by the timeworn twists any experienced reader will be able to predict. Ironically, a major positive element is the lack of any sort of unorthodox turn around, sort of teases ones expectations but always remains down to earth in that respect - as opposed to its philosophical innuendos.

Infamously drawn "clones" offer distinction on personality basis at least, but more or less are victims of your read more
