I noticed that at the time I am writing this, no one else has reviewed the artistic genius that is Dai Dark--and so I have come to answer the call. This is also the first review I've written on MAL despite the fact I've used it for like 2 years.
Anyways, to summarize the manga in a few words: beautiful, dark, and morbidly funny. The concept of Dai Dark is so weird and out-of-nowhere, but the worldbuilding is fantastic and it makes you want to learn more. This really is a refreshing, original manga with its own unique balance between horror and comedy. Are you a
fan of gore? A fan of space? A fan of pun-loving skeletons? Then this is the manga for you.
Intriguing, believable (in a Sci-Fi Fantasy sense), and carefully put together. The story is still ongoing, so I can't say a whole lot about wherever it's headed. But so far I'm loving it.
Very reminiscent of Junji Ito works, but of course with its own style. The art suits the tone of the story perfectly, depicting a kind of gritty realism. As an amateur artist myself I know how hard it is to draw some of (a lot of) the things in this manga, so I really really respect the art.
The characters are honestly my favourite thing about Dai Dark so far. Their witty banter gives a new life to the story, and it was my curiosity about who they were that made me keep reading.
