Rengoku no Karma is not a manga for everybody. It deals with the heavy topic of suicide and depression, and acts as a warning against committing suicide.

It's a very sad story, and given the premise of infinitely looping to save people, you'll see quite a few people end up in bad ends, all thanks to the main character committing suicide.
This story is great. The High Schooler arc is almost perfect, aside from one small detail I'll save for later.

Now, you may have just noticed I called it an arc. Well, that is because there is a followup to it, covering what I presume to read more

What an interesting manga.

I’ve read a lot of manga that deals with revenge and bullying. Needless to say, suicide is a frequently discussed topic within those manga. However, it’s rare to see a manga that delves into the effects of a suicide on a victim’s surroundings.

Rengoku no Karma does exactly that. It actually shows a suicide, but then it goes on to show the unexpected consequences of that suicide in relation to those around the victim.

The manga deals with the subject decently enough, though at times it doesn’t explain things thoroughly. For example, why does the manga specifically say six people are affected? I had read more

Suicide is a topic that, while included in narrative quite often, is not often the focus. Those few times when it is, more often than not, the story follows the character in the events leading up to their suicide rather than what happens to the character after. And honestly, most of the time when the focus IS on what happens after the suicide, it is not well done. This is one of those cases.

To be fair, this manga is actually quite interesting. The events that the protagonist goes through in his own little Purgatory are surprising and at times exciting and it does a read more

This is without a doubt, one of the worst mangas I've ever read.

The art is good, as in the artist is skilled, but the're so much over the top abuse, over the top villanous characters, deus ex machinas, and diabolus ex machinas, so it is intolerably bad.

Mind you I'm quite picky when it comes to manga, so that shows, but this is simply appalingly bad.

Breakdown: 1/10 story, 5/10 art, 1/10 character, 1/10 enjoyment 1/10 overall.

The story is about horrific over the top bulling that goes above and beyound any reason and makes you wonder whether the hell any adults are in thsi situation. The read more
