A disturbed newborn finds himself tasked with carrying out his mother's will—to exact her revenge upon the world. Growing up with sociopathic tendencies facilitates his twisted behaviors as he methodically schemes gruesome acts throughout his childhood. This leads him down a spiral of murder and immoral acts in this dark tale of a misunderstood child going from nothing to reaching a god-like state.

an enjoyable aesthetic experience, but it's immediately clear that this is very much a matter of style over substance. you could call it a bitesize parable, i guess. although only in the framework of its own (a)moral code, it does have a moral to the story, a lesson to be learned.

points for an idiosyncratic style that is easy on the eye, but it was also much too easy on the brain, a cruise-control sort of read. perhaps this is inevitable, given that it's a one-volume work.

A more realistic re-telling of the manga 'Monster'.

People who haven't finished reading the manga Monster may not get this and in many ways the art and the story spoils the final plot developments of that manga, but it cannot be denied: this manga at least is shorter and is much more realistic in the sense that there's no hero to the horror and the timeline of the story is much closer to how long real life serial killers' careers last.

This doesn't mean this is realistic though. From the first panel onwards, it is clear this is meant to be more poetic than realistic. Those who read more

huh, ig it's boycrime time

i wanted to like this, but the story was very lackluster. like oh no, he's a fucked up kiddo doin boycrime. which sucks because the start was very strong and intriguing, "I was born out of my mother's asshole" is a killer line. Idk, I was hoping for something that lived up to the unique art style but instead it goes where you think it will go.

Read it if you are looking for something visually interesting, it takes like 15 minutes to zoom through this. There are plenty of other manga that go this dark are more thought-provoking

The review will be the first part in English and the second in Spanish: D

Strange and disturbing, Kami no Kodomo is a manga that exploits Christian symbolism, while criticizing certain aspects of today's society. But, and still, these two elements in the protagonist's mouth are distorted, until you only have the image of a boy who has a deep sociopathy and who, in addition, is capable of transmitting his fascination with crime to others ( Collective insanity or some other form of global delusion?). What we are left with is a deeply unpleasant story, although, unfortunately, a highly credible one. Plus, the disturbing drawing style read more
