Synopsis

At the invitation of an old school friend, introverted high-school student Mikado Ryuugamine, yearning for a life less ordinary, makes his way to Tokyo. His destination: Ikebukuro, a hotbed of madmen living most unusual lives. On his first day there, Mikado encounters a cast of characters so colorful, the rich hues of his rural hometown pale in comparison! And as if the naive stalker chick, the high school senior obsessed with the rather creepy object of his affections, the hikikomori genius doctor, the hedonistic information dealer, the strongest man in all of Ikebukuro weren't enough…Mikado also chances upon a sight that leaves him rubbing his eyes and scratching his head—the Black Biker, who is black as night from bodysuit to license plate, soundlessly weaving through the streets like a figure out of an urban legend. Who is this "Headless Rider" on the jet-black metal steed!? And why does it seem like Mikado's already gotten himself neck-deep in the insanity that is the norm in his new home!?

Here's the deal. The anime was before the manga so of course all the fans that watched the anime first where let down and very confused.

I read the manga first so to me it was very good because it draws you to the DRRR!! universe and it explains you some of the not very cleared things in the anime.

I think if you want to read the manga first go ahead, if you already watched the anime don't bother. you'll only get very confused or you'll get bored.

And if you haven't read the manga yet, since vol. 3 and 4 aren't translated yet, don't bother, watch read more

The only reason I can give this manga such a high rating is because I watched the entire anime before reading it. It's really the only way you can enjoy it.

Reliving the DRRR!! plotline is fun, and that's why I loved what I read of the manga. It's complex, it's confusing, and it's full of fun. The characters are all so unique, and they all have their own personal growth as the story progresses. It's wonderful; it really is.

BUT, the only way you can feel this way towards the manga is if you've SEEN THE ANIME. Without it, you'll be lost, and terribly, terribly puzzled. read more

haaa.... since there were only negative reviews, I'll try to show you all the positive part of this manga.

I admit, it really IS a little confusing.
The first chapters suddenly throw you into the story, while the whole plot, involving (almost) every charcter, is partially shown to you.
The art too, isn't what i would call outstanding, it looks better in the Anime...

If you read all the currently available chapters and you stlii haven't understood it yet, i recommend to watch the anime.
That's what i have done (from the beginning) and i must say that the story has a lot of twists and is a little read more

The story is extremely confusing, its like going off in a desert without a compass or a map; its just stupid.

As I was reading, I didn't know up from down. It's all there, all of it, the characters are there, the theme is okay but I (the reader) didn't understand any of it!

How the story is told is awful, its been over a volume...

And I still don't know crap!

So the story is dribble, the characters are a huge question mark and the themes are quite repulsive in their incestuous, etc. ways.

The only thing I can safely say is that the art was okay but read more
