Synopsis

Yuki Tachibana, a withdrawn first grader, is convinced that the fourth floor of his school is home to supernatural creatures that few kids (and no adults) can see and he's worried about a recent influx of new, less friendly creatures and about his ability to perceive the true shape of things waning as he gets older. Most of the other kids mock Yuki, who they think is crazy due to his strange pronouncements and peculiar actions, and, aside from the creatures he sees, his only social interactions are with the school's kindly and open-minded caretaker, a new transfer student named Makoto Suzuki who's allocated the desk next to his and an enigmatic boy named IQ who always wears a box over his head.

If you want an easy-to-understand, fast-paced plot; look elsewhere. Gogo Monster follows elementary schooler Tachibana as he is ostracized from his class due to acting out over creatures that only he can see. The readers are shown his delusions and there are many panels which focus on the ambiance, which adds to the surrealist tone.

There are only a few characters, but they're pretty well fleshed-out, and you can understand the way they think very well by the end.

The artstyle is a little rough, but surprisingly detailed. It really matches up well with the main character's doodles of what he sees.

There's only a few chapters, read more
