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!

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.

Preliminary (25/? eps)
Started reading this several years ago and only stopped when I lost access to new issues. In the first five or six volumes ("25" chapters is my best guess), most of the material was intriguing and original, with little repetition.

If you like darkness, delving into the human psyche, and disquieting imagery, some of which might sear itself into your brain for years, consider giving this series a gander.

Reading these stories and feeling the pain depicted made me want to behave in a morally upright way. Some of the conditions portrayed can be truly upsetting because, figuratively at least, more of them are possible--even ...
