Who does a person turn to if they need someone assassinated? They can contact the mysterious Tadashi Usobuki, a red-eyed assassin clothed in black. Spoken of as an urban legend, he requires no payment and leaves no evidence because he never actually kills anyone himself. His preferred method is to hypnotize his victims into committing suicide through the power of suggestion, or to manipulate events so that his desired outcome will be achieved.

But what does Usobuki get in compensation for his services? His "payment" is getting to relish in the folly of humankind, and oftentimes those who request his help end up far more sorrowful than they were before.

Funouhan is a really interesting manga. I did at times feel as though the manga was a bit shallow because of its repetitive plot but overall it's an amazing manga. If you love psychological mangas then you will love this 100%.

The artwork is amazing. I first initially started the manga because of its unique art cover and fell more in love when I saw the beautiful drawing.

The characters change frequently except for Usobuki (main) and a detective that is crazy about Uso. Usobuki's character is very mysterious. There is nothing said about his background and childhood and the detective also has a very interesting persona.

Overall, read more

Just one word to describe such a work.


The best ongoing manga now and in a long time, and rightfully so.

Firstly, I would like to present myself as someone who has fairly high standards, or at least I claim to be so.
If you were to check out my profile, you will find how cruel I am a critic. Berserk, which seems to be the highest rated manga on animelist, would be nowhere near my list of very good manga, although I gave it an high score. Yet this manga, for now, sits among the top for all the manga I have read. Amazing, truly amazingly read more

It's basically a better Hell Girl (Jigoku Shoujo). If you liked Hell Girl you can just stop reading this review right now and go read Funouhan, because you will definitely like it.

As it's episodic, characters don't need to be fleshed out too much. Aside from Usobuki, there is one other detective character that persists between chapters, but he's hardly fleshed out at all. There isn't much actual character depth in this series. it's basically all about Usobuki and his very mysterious character.

All the females are drawn the same way. The art is amazing and very atmospheric, but the women have some serious sameface. I'm just read more
