After a long absence, the young shaman Samizo Kohei returns from the dead with a prophecy of the apocalypse. Or part of him returns, at least - most of his body has been replaced with the transplanted body parts of his former friends, all retaining their distinctive personalities. He returns to his home in Shinjuku, where he works as a psychic surgeon in an unlicensed clinic. Here he serves as the unofficial guardian of the Shinjuku underground, solving paranormal murder mysteries, with the assistance of an assortment of other bizarre mystics and semi-human allies. Meanwhile, the others wonder exactly what Kohei has become, and whether he has returned to prevent the apocalypse, or to initiate it.

Listen, this is probably my favorite manga of all time. You can't just read a chapter and expect it to make sense so that your lazy butt brain can chill while Eiji Otsuka works his ass off to make such an intricate, DEEP, and detailed story. This story questions our humanity, it questions our social structure, it questions our mentality. If you enjoy reading manga for shits and giggles, this is not for you. If you'd like to go on a wild ride on the feels train, hop on, it's time to get your noggins working.

Overall 8/10
I rated it realistically since I know most people read more
