I was lying on my Sofa scrolling through my laptop, when my single and unmistakable one true love peeked over and looked at what I was reading.

“What’s this?” she asked.

“It’s a manga called Nickelodeon,” I said, “And it has nothing at all to do with the channel. It’s a series of flash-fiction style stories, each with a weird premise, a ton of pop culture references and otaku jokes, and usually ending with a poignant conclusion.”

“I hate manga” she told me. I don’t know why she told me that, but it may have been to hurt me.

My unrequited love was a doppleganger of my real sister, read more

MOOD: A veritable thought-particle collider of a series.

It’s hard to describe what makes Nickelodeon great. People have compared it to the works of novelist Haruki Murakami, to anime the like of Lain, Penguindrum, or Kyousougiga, ad infinitum; none of this really fits the manga.

It could be chalked up to its way of approaching fantastical and absurd concepts with a mundanity one would see in a realistic manga and a warmth one would see in a slice of life work. Yes, it’s weird, but it doesn’t point itself out; instead, it lets you discover its weirdness on your own.

Perhaps it’s the brevity of its chapters - read more

Wow... Now that is what I call some real wtf material.
Highschool girls making out with tigers, a badmington/monster hunter club, having a ladder on the 2nd floor of a building equals the answer to the universe, genetically modified komainu stew, limbs flying left and right (and sometimes on your own accord), Duskin Hoffman, facehuggers from Aliens, happy tree friends?!
Illogical, incomprehensible, plain gibberish. This manga makes absolutely no sense whatsoever... And that's why I loved it!

Nickelodeon is basically a collection of short one-shots (7 pages each) from Dowman Sayman, a specialist in the domain of mindfuck. Dowman's Nickelodeon will have you laughing at the stuff that read more

Preliminary
Dowman Sayman and his pet project Nickelodeon (named after the short-lived early 20th century nickle theatre project) display a world very much different than ours - limbs are lost at leisure, animals may roam and commute through zoos as they please, and youkai have peacefully immigrated to our world. At it's core this is a story of innocent love overtoned with the supernatural. Each story is presented in an artstyle reminiscent of The Nightmare Before Christmas mixed with Mike Mignola .

This manga dabbles in a little bit of everything from self aware Pokemon parodies to tales of strange animals in the middle of their read more
