In a place between somewhere and nowhere, a man who calls himself "God" awaits people on the verge of death. He meets the good, the bad, and everyone in between, and allows them to reflect on their lives. Some require comfort, while others repent or regret their actions. God provides a fair judgment to all before they can pass on to the other side.

Life waits for no one. Still, people take living for granted while they are still in this world. But all men must die when their time comes. Philosophical and thought-provoking, About Death looks into concepts of life and death through the various experiences of dying people and their individual encounters with God.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Each chapter was released with accompanying soundtracks composed by Squar. The music was later compiled in soundtrack CDs which released with the published edition of the series.

The stories in Regarding Death are often tragic, beautiful, and generally a little heart-wrenching. They are well written and fit well together, and although the ending was a little sudden, it was very well done and very satisfying.

The art was visually appealing and interesting, but also simplistic enough to maintain a slightly surreal feeling. It was an excellent style and lent much to the story. Hipster God is perhaps the best God, haha.

Characters were not consistently shown in depth, but they did not need to be. Each individual was explored enough for readers to relate or emote or just understand the person accordingly. Their ...

This is one of the only story that I often returns too. Maybe because it's easy to read again with its few chapters. Perhaps because each chapter is independent of the others, which allows you to read any story you like.

God is the main character but prefers to listen to the characters explain their own story, even though we suspect that he knows them better than anyone else. He wants to make others aware of something, or just know how people interpret their own story, in their own way, and not in an omniscient way as he knows them.

Even if the art is not ...
