Meet Mon, a violent killer faithful only to his own eruptive desires, and his timid companion Toshi, a demolition-devil with a fanatical thirst for destruction. Their killing-spree across Japan is destined to intersect the path of the enormous "Higumadon", a mysterious beast on a Godzilla-like rampage from Hokkaido to Tokyo.

"Good comes from God, evil comes from ourselves. "
This is a sentence that can easily be quoted when talking about Hideki Arai's The World Is Mine.
This work is absolutely nothing ordinary, and will necessarily provoke in the reader a before and after, in my opinion. It is a deeply political story, where two men will seek to test the wrath of God in a Japan fractured by its leaders.
With this work, we go through all the feelings.
Indeed, the work is of unprecedented violence.
Whether it is in his crazy staging or in his drawings (beware! His style is quite atypical!) with read more

I am gonna start by saying that i will definitely suggest you to read this manga, its a great read that doesnt have boring parts. Now lets get more specific. When i found this manga i was searching for a manga that hand violence and interesting characters, something similar to Ichi, TWIM was exactly what i was searching for.

For the vast majority of this series, which, adding up to 163 total chapters, takes no small amount of time to finish, the scenes and the characters shine through the page and allow you to simply sit back and enjoy it like you would with any high-tension Hollywood blockbuster. Indeed, much of this manga feels like the stereotypical action movie with all of the traditional values turned upside-down. The main character is often mute, extremely unpredictable, and given to fits of violence. The sidekick is a nervous kid with an aptitude for explosives and a wavering sense of morality. The hook is that meanwhile, a read more

"We are saturated with unneeded information to the point that it's painful. I refuse to let this interfere with my life. The religion of progress disgusts me."

The World Is Mine is a manga that I at first hated, but after a few grueling hours I more than came around to. A story that has gotten more relevant and more uncomfortable two decades later. To call it transgressive is putting it lightly, our main characters are indiscriminate murderers. Even to those most unphased by fictional violence (by far it's not the most gory or otherwise visceral manga) the context and realism of the actions depicted in read more
