Lives of Eccentrics (or Henjin Henkutsu Retsuden) delves on the common theme of eccentricity and weirdness of humanity in Hirohiko Araki's works, this time through a series of small biographies about different famous eccentrics like the severely neurotic genius inventor Nikola Tesla and several other bizarre individuals that have left their mark in our history.
The art varies greatly through the course of the manga seeing how the gap between the release of the chapters has been so long. The series starts with the style Araki used in his early career while drawing Phantom Blood and is therefore a great example of the author's artistic evolution.
All in all it's as enjoyable as Araki's art always is with it's grand amount of detail.
Despite it's shortness it's an enjoyable read for any fan of Hirohiko Araki's works, giving further insight to Araki's views about cherishing the eccentricity of humanity even if it sometimes is painful to be different.
