Death Panda is the cutest panda since Sexual Harassment Panda. With the contrast between his fur, laden with heart shaped white splotches, and his vicious teeth and claws, he is fucking adorable. Be forewarned, this story doesn't have any incredible characters; most of them don’t do too much before dying. It is not very thrilling. It is not all that grotesque or messed up, not compared to previous Uziga Waita manga. It sure ain't scary. So what are its strengths? It is pretty funny, for one. It’s really funny, actually. It's about a demonically cute panda that rapes and kills at a whim; as you
can imagine, people's reactions to him are pretty priceless. This shock value humor almost renders Death Panda as a kind of one-trick pony, but it manages to spice things up with exceedingly creative brutality, injected with a scathing wit and an unpredictable nature, and then it concludes before its ephemeral appeal wears off its welcome. Despite Death Panda's inherently transient nature, augmented by its high entertainment value, in its duration it ironically and moralistically explores things like familial relations, homosexuality, animal captivity, the meaning of evil, idolatry, reincarnation, and the metaphysical definition of the distinction between human and beast. No, this is not a philosophical or “deep” manga, it merely satirizes these things. It also satirizes the power rangers.
For a good example of the type of comedy you are like to find in Death Panda: in one Uziga Waita manga, Death Face, a girl calls an obese mentally deficient man ugly. He then rips her vaginal opening with his hands, turns her inside out, and embraces her remains as they ooze blood, guts, and cokroaches. He then lachrymosely warbles out the age-old cliché of "we are all the same on the inside." This strange and repulsive sense of humor is omnipresent in all Uziga Waita works, and that is what you should expect in this one as well. The reason his manga tend to be underrated is that people expect erotism or serious and dark plot from his work, when those things were clearly never his strengths. He is a humorist at heart, strangely enough; it's just a very dark sense of humor. I find his style to be clever and fresh, but not all will. Still, the story was very unpredictable and it was perfectly paced, so I must at least give it a 7/10. The art is well-done, with admittedly more detail done on the characters' entrails than their faces, but it's also a 7/10 because it definitely accomplishes what it was designed to do and the detail is there when it is needed. Characters have over-the-top and entertaining development, although they are just vehicles for the plot, and I have to give them a 7/10 or a 7.5/10. Enjoyment is easily Death Panda's biggest strength, as it is incredibly engaging despite not exactly being profound or groundbreaking; I have to give it at least 9/10 for enjoyment. Overall, it's a semi-weak 8. It certainly lacks universal appeal, but the niche it was designed for, the readers who have no issue stomaching it, could consider it a potential classic.
By coincidence I heard about this manga, so I wanted to check it out.
The basic synopsis is a giant demonic panda comes from out of nowhere and begins to kill, dismember and rape most of his victims, sometimes simultaneously, ok don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of Elfen Lied, Berserk, Gunnm, and Claymore, all of which are pretty violent and sometimes gory, accepted, but the aforementioned mangas, as well as their companion animes have great stories to explain the violence, in other words the violence and gore are important to telling the story, however with death panda, the over the top violence and
gore doesn't seem to make any sense and i would suspect is there for mere shock value, there is no back story as to why the panda does what he does, and no character development, more like random characters getting killed raped or disemboweled in the most graphic manner, but with no meaningful explanation, like I said before I am a fan of the horror genre, but there has to be a good story as the foundation for all the mayhem, about the only thing I can praise is the art work which is excellent, the guy is obviously talented, and it would be nice ti see him do another manga where there is a great story to go along with all the carnage.
This manga is first of all a lighthearted, and slightly grotesque, love comedy. Many will not appreciate it, as there is horrible killing and rape mixed together throughout the whole manga. But if one is able to see past this, one will notice funny parodies, sweet love, and that happy ending which is defining for a story to be a real comedy (at least after ancient standards).
The story is more than decent for a hentai manga, though at times a little hard to follow, while the characters other than the panda are pretty generic types that are often found as side characters in harem mangas.
Still, the art is good, and the light comedy combined with a very contrasting morbidity makes for great enjoyment for people like me who actually like the ero-guro genre.
The author has even managed to get a really sweet and sad love scene into the manga, which is probably the reason why I personally like it enough to read it over and over again. Nothing can beat true love, even if it's in a seemingly horrid form.
I would recommend this to anyone who has an interest in the macabre and/or rape, to those who want to read something with good shock value, and to people who generally like the idea of a badass panda who goes around spreading death in town.

>Such an out of topic when did I even remember that cringy humor
Well back to this sick grotesque manga...
Apparently, what's even more disturbing seeing bunch of crappy panel that contains toilet vile of turmoil. Since it's gruesome and only focuses on a rampaging panda whose killing lowlife creatures and reborn once more as a living in the path of shitty nature. Well duh? that's it.. It makes even more worst, but way better gory than Elfen Lied that had done RIGHT...
Having a Bad and most sick happy
ending so far.. This is the kind of foreplay or even your libido can't even stand.
Not even recommending this... but they're are few sick.. lowlifes can enjoy this disgusting piece of art.
