Honestly, I never thought I'd be reading this manga, lest writing a review. Odoru! Kremlin Kyuuden is not for the faint of heart. It has big ero-guro/hentai themes, a large theme being, though used satirically, rape and sexual deviancy, so if that is something that would prevent you from reading it, then you might want to skip this one.
This manga has no set story, and it follows a hypothetical storyline/scenario per each of the twelve chapters, with rarely any carryover/consistency between them. It runs like a children's cartoon, but I think it fits with its weird tone. It's just as weird as the (current) cover
image on it's page implies.
Odoru! Kremlin Kyuuden full of satirical and sardonic commentary of the Russian communist regime, as well as childish jabs at the ideologies and major leaders/proponents of the USSR, and in addition, all sorts of atrocities under a humorous red labor party mask. It's a riot, and no doubt shocking. The art, though not very notable by many standards, is perfect for its main goal, to shock readers. It relies heavily on shock humor to get its laughs. The inherit, nervous, "what the f**k" you give to any particular panel when historical communist figureheads do something outrageous is the selling point. And, if shock humor is not your thing, this manga will probably come off more as a "gross" satire than a humorous one.
If you're the kind of terrible person that loves to laugh at things like bad fetish art on DeviantART, this might just be the manga for you. Personally, I found this manga, for the most part, pretty funny. It's a relatively short read, and if you have an afternoon to burn and aren't particulary offended by anything, and happen to be a history nerd, this may be worth your time. The many jokes on Gorbachev and Stalin in particular are almost worth the read.
I haven't finished this yet, but from the scans I've downloaded, I think I can review.
There will be people who love this manga, people who hate it, and people who think it's interesting yet are too afraid to pick it up again. It's a satire of Russian stereotypes and government, and it can be offensive. If you are used to horror, hentai, shocking things, and you aren't easily offended, I reccomend the manga just for entertainment value. This is ero-guro, but it's also very funny.
I'm a little ashamed to say that I learned about Russia from this manga, but I
did. The characters who were historical figures are hilarious, and the satire is amusing. It manages to be pretty funny through all the shocking scenes, but that's what the artist is trying to do: shock you, before you understand what's really going on.
The art style isn't really anything great, but it's decent. Althogh women are almost always given a bad role, they look quite interesting.
If you're just looking for a Russian history lesson, go elsewhere. If you're okay with guro and violence, then I reccomend this series, just for the Glastnost powers. It's a fun read, anyway.
