Tropical Citron opens with a great page, charting the descent of a few bombs into a jungle below and transitioning to the bubbly insides of a glass of water in front of a TV showing a mushroom cloud explosion.

There are many great transitions like this in the story. The composition is superb. There is that trademark Matsumoto black humour flowing throughout as we go from one panel to another, the comedic flourishes juxtaposing perfectly.

The story is surreal to the point where the suited dude with the horse's head from another Matsumoto manga makes a cameo appearance here and you don’t blink. Soma, read more

A really distinctive piece in its every aspect. It's based around a certain vice, which serves as sort of a justification to transit the plot / character into this ludicrous world of distorted reality, and bizarre history.

Don't expect some really profound plot in it -- as it serves only to keep stuff in motion, albeit pertains to overall satisfaction. What really matters is the journey, filled with humorous events, and illustrious art which adds to black humor specific for Matsumoto.

An ostentatious read more or less, depends on how you assimilate it.
