A collection of seemingly unrelated short stories by novelist Yusuke Yamada.

Synopsis for the 1st story "Jet Coaster"
There is a mysterious group of people who inflict cruel and fatal games on people for their own amusement. Tatsuya and Misa are out on a date in an amusement park when they wander into one of these horrific competitions on the tallest roller coaster on earth. The seats fall out of their 12-person roller coaster car, and they are told that the game will end when all but one person has fallen to their death. Will the passengers be able to find a way to escape the competition? Will there be any retribution against the orchestrators of this sick crime?

The first thing I noticed when I started on this series was the quality of the artwork- the artful usage of strong contrasting worked perfectly to bring out the main focal points of each page- something I haven't seen in the mangas I've read. The art-style is very bold and minimalist- a nice combination that makes reading pleasant on the eyes.

Character-wise, I cannot say much since at point of writing, only 2 chapters have been released.

Because snuff film-esque plots are always eccentric and depraved, it also means that such a niche area would prove the worthiness of the authors to show whether they can read more

This review was written the day before a final exam day, so please do forgive some errors.

After I got back from the library, I decided to read some new manga. I was looking through some random manga until I saw 8.1 Yamada Yuusuke Gekijou. This manga looked promising, and it got me hooked.

Story looks all right. Its similar to psychological manga except there is no use for the brain (so far). A couple gets into some twisted game with many other people, and chaos begins.The people subjected to this game are placed in ridiculous situations that practically ensures their deaths. Although it is too early read more
