Written by the author now most famous for Alive and Skyhigh, thanks to successful film adaptations, this manga easily surpasses both, such is the fate of masterpieces forever burdened with the 'underrated' label.

Tsutomu Takahashi's crime thriller Jiraishin is a decisive step away from most manga tropes and conventions. It feels more like a manga adaptation of a gritty US TV series in the vein of NYPD Blue, or to go even further back, like a Japanese take on TV series The Equalizer.

What we have here are an array of very disturbing cases involving a variety of depraved yet fascinating characters who usually leave dead bodies read more

Well, I really didn't like this manga.
If you ask me why, I would say cause I finished reading and I felt something like disgusted and sad with the world. Well, maybe that's what the autor wanted.
Kyoya gives me the impression that he's not human. I don't like him.
But, just to say something different, the art is really good.

I prefer manga with good psicological stories and something that I can learn in the end (ok that's cliche but its my taste). So, if you're searching something twisted and creepy, take your time and read Jiraishin, you'll like it.

To be honest, I have no idea what to write about this manga. I'm not sure whether I should like it or not, because every time I thought: "That's bull****"., there was this certain something that made methink: "Well ok, but that was good, so give it another try."
It is really hard to grasp what you feel about it, because this manga was completely different from all manga most people, including me, are used to. I try to avoid spoiler as good as possible, but I hope you can understand that it's not so easy (even more because that's my first review!).

Investigations on murder cases often hit a wall due to legal limitations; whenever these cannot be dealt with, Kyoya Ida, a ruthless, homicidal and emotionless top detective, is assigned with the case. Jiraishin is a mystery manga which main focus lies in displaying different murders, ranging from brutal manslaughter to intricate, mysterious cases.

There is no definite storyline to follow in Jiraishin: each volume is dedicated to a specific case, in which the author carefully introduces the characters involved, as well as the setting without providing an access of clues to keep the reader interested. The cases take place in the 90's which enhances the gloomy read more
