Drifting Net Cafe
Volume 1


The newest work from popular artist Shuzo Oshimi serialized in Manga Action is written in a style that brings out the unique traits of both eroticism and pure love. The main character, 29 year old Kouichi Toki, runs into his first love again after stopping inside a net cafe. Just as the two are rejoicing over their reunion, the city outside their net cafe disappears! They are stuck together with an assortment of people that have nothing in common, a band of geeks, gangsters, spoiled kids, ganguro girls, and salarymen. A dynamic love story blooming in a world cut off from reality.

First of all let me say that this a Manga for adults. Not only because of the graphic violence and gore or the abundant sex but also because it strangely takes some maturity to look back at your first love and see how it might have impacted you now that you are an adult.

I can relate with the author when it comes to the "trauma" that the very first powerful flame of love can produce. It might go buy unnoticed most of the time but deep down we never forget it. There's always THAT ONE PERSON that is stuck in our minds for no real ...

tl;dr: A manga with an interesting start and a great ending, though with a bunch of pointless nonsense in between.

This manga starts off with the protagonist, Toki, deciding to waste time in a net café he passes by so as to delay going home to his moody pregnant wife. There he’s surprised to encounter his first love from middle school, Tono, whom he had always regretted not confessing to. At this point there’s a crazy storm and when it clears up, he’s shocked to find that the world outside the net café is completely different, with it being the sole building in the middle of ...

Compared to recent works by the author like Chi no Wadachi and Happiness, his art here is very weak, as well as the story itself. Not least because this was one of his first manga so it justifies art to be weak.

Suspense exists, but the characters are totally stupid and do not act according to the situations, which ends up totally breaking the suspension of disbelief of the reader. It may even have the purpose of showing how humanity can be bad when there are no more rules or things like that, but everything is so gratuitous and unreal that this premise is broken.

The manga ...
