This manga is a joke , a black joke . You see what i did there ?
Nothing really makes that much sense in this manga about mafia and organizations but the art style is gruesome and stylish and the characters are funny and they can pretty much be summarized in one word , like Kodama for example the perfect word for him is stupid . If you are looking for something stupid and funny to read this is a good choice .

Like, seriously, this is not only bad, it's one of the worst mangas in any genre I've read. I love gritty mangas and I don't mind graphical violence — as long as there actually is plot behind it. This one does not have anything like that, it's page after page with completely brainless unreflective violence and lame characters designed to appeal to 10-15 year old kids who believe they are reading a manga meant for much older people. I really tried to find anything meaningful, thought provoking, or even some kind of irony, humour or sarcasm. Nothing! In a way that makes it a much read more

This is my first review so forgive me for my bad English as it is not my first language.

Now then to start off black joke is .... well a joke ok look to summarize it's a story about mafia, gangs, and well f*ck all. Anyways I have split this review into multiple categories then I will give the overall score.

Art:- score:10
The art is awesome it does it's job of being exactly what it needs to be and that's over the top.

Story:- score:2
So why a 2 and not a 0 that's because while it lacks any existence of a solid story(any story?) it does have some read more

Despite the only other reviews being negative and calling it mediocre, i quite enjoyed it. The art is solid but nothing to write home about, and the story is nonexistent. But this mangas greatest strength is a actually legitimately mature tone. Most manga with this level of violence take themselves too seriously and go into edgy territory. It is actually quite hard to explain the tone, but its genuinely funny, a bit of a black joke if you will.

The characters act genuinely human and are quite likable and unique. Even stereotypes like the big dumb brute on the cover actually has a fuckton of read more
