Most thoughts have an easily discernible meaning and purpose to them, but sometimes you'll have a strange thought with an unknowable origin that will probably be forgotten just as easily as it was created.

Invitation from a crab is a collection and exploration of these thoughts. The stories in this book are nonsensical and confusing, but ultimately interesting.

I find it hard to review something like this in a conventional way. Most manga I can come up with a score based on feeling and be confident in it but this isn't your normal manga. I can't score it conventionally because the product isn't made conventionally. The most read more

Panpanya's Kani ni Sasowarete, An Invitation by a Crab in English, is a short manga or essentially a book comprising of 18 chapters in total. It follows a high school aged protagonist of indeterminate gender. Each chapter in the book(?) is seemingly random in the sense that none of them are exactly related: do not seem to follow a linear storyline. The manga basically disregards any and all conventions so it's a tough task assigning a genre to it. Since it disregards conventions other manga (or anime) pertains to, the basis of comparison is taken away; therefore it's pretty hard to score it (which I read more

A quick little 4 page manga about the main character of the mangaka's other works. Considering how short it is, I can't even talk about what it's about without giving anyway anything, but it did take me longer to find than to read. If you liked this mangaka's other works, I'm sure you'll get some enjoyment out of this short read.

If you haven't read anything by Panpanya before, the primary focuses of the work are atmosphere and art. From what I've read, each story really likes to draw the reader in through very odd, other-worldly situations and the art that accompanies them.
