Synopsis

Your body is their business! Five young students at a Buddhist university, three guys and two girls, find little call for their job skills in today's Tokyo... among the living, that is! But all that stuff in college they were told would never pay off—you know, channeling, dowsing, ESP—gives them a direct line to the dead, the dead who are still trapped in their corpses and can't move on to the next reincarnation.

The five form the Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service: whether suicide, murder, accident, or illness, they'll carry your body wherever it needs to go to free your soul!

Black comedy is an incredibly hard genre to pull off. Lay it on too thick and it becomes a dirge, lay it on too thin and a farce results. Luckily, Otsuka gets it right more often than not in this strange series. Despite the supernatural theme of the stories, it essentially boils down to a detective series, as the team combines their powers, to solve the mystery behind the lost souls and help them reach final peace.

Although some of the set-ups are dazzlingly original (the actuary who can calculate not only how many will die, but also the who and when; the funeral home offering read more

This manga combines excellent characters and interesting one-shot stories with sharp social commentary and dark humor. The artwork is clean and professional, which I certainly appreciate.

Really I don't understand why it isn't more well-known. This is one of those manga that you see on the shelf at the comic book store labeled "Manga for those who don't like manga."

The individual horror stories are pretty cool as well. If you like dark and creepy, this is an excellent choice. However, if violence and some kind of weird nudity bother you, you might have trouble with it.
