The main character is a detective, Kazuhiko Amamiya, suffering from multiple personality disorder. Starting out as a violent detective series with a twist (the twist being the variant personalities that take over Detective Amamiya at various intervals), the series evolves into an exceptionally complex and involved sci-fi conspiracy story.

MPD-Psycho is one of the most sickest,darkest,mind-shocking,breath-taking,eye-popping-from-your-head thing I've read in a while.And I'm speaking softly now..

What do we have in MPD?
We have a detective,who is also a killer,or maybe vice of versa,a killer who is a detective.It's hard to tell.One of the great pluses of this manga is it's complexity,where the reader must understand the way of the twisted killer mind,sometime's this bring's you in the darkes't corner's of your conscious.Creepy.

This manga is boring. It's nothing more than a poor attempt to shock the reader. I cringe sometimes when I remember some of the things I have read, such as Ichi the Killer but this manga is nothing more than showcase of various self mutilation or play with corpses. The artwork is uninspired.

Having read Death Note before this manga, despite it being released years before Death Note, they share similarities. It's as if Light suffers from multiple personality disorder and is also a psychopathic detective.

There is so much potential to come across as a shocking piece of work that pushes people out of their comfort ...
