Toukou Tochuu no Deaigashira no Guuzen Kiss wa Ariuru? Jikken, or as we can say the “Can an Accidental Collision on the Way to the School Result in a Kiss” experiment.
this manga is named after one of the short stories inside it. Shintaro Kago once again bringing us another one of his bizzare and weird story with a beautiful art that complement each other.
the story is not focused on one thing, hence the collection. it consist of many different thing that is unique, weird, and beautiful in its on way. there are only art, stories with no text, stories with a confusing art, stories with
a confusing stories, art with confusing stories, and all sort of weird and abnormal masterpiece.
Shintaro Kago also put a good satirical stories and art which we can appreciated greatly and really makes us think, splashed with dark jokes here and there. his taste are imppecable, truly a great manga with a twisted mind.
there are some of my favorite short stories in this manga;
“Question asked by the Small” the story on how a toy is suitable for children or not
the journey of Detective in Gutter town and Headline village. this is one the most unique 4th wall breaking that i’ve ever seen, it leaves you in confusion as it only makes it harder to read the manga. nonetheless, it’s unique.
“Selective Memory” with also a very unique story on how different memories can make up something that we never do before.
“The Stretcher Rally” a story about a race to the hospital.
and all sorts of stories and art that will make you weirded out, confused, and makes you questioning everything.
his realistic artstyle is one the most appealing art that i’ve ever seen from a realistic artist, no doubt about it. combined with his gruesome and twisted stories, it creates a true semi-horror comedic stories.
getting occupied by the stories and art, i can’t really focused myself on the character, it only serves as a tool for delivering the twisted stories that is happening inside.
i greatly enjoyed it, every single page is a bless for me, it always gives you something to be think about, something to be analyze, or disgusted, confused, laughed, all sort of emotions. becaus it consist of short stories and unique art, it gives always give you a different vibe each time, so it keeps me entertained.
a good read to waste your time on a boring and dull day, give this short collection a shot and let it consume you.
