Gokiburi Buster is a short, wacky, over the top and incredibly well drawn action/comedy one shot, written by the creator of One Punch Man and drawn by the same artist who makes the redraw of One Punch Man.
The Gokiburi Busters is an elite unit, trained to exterminate cockroaches. It's a dangerous task to face the little devils, so they usually just destroy the entire building it's in. But this case is the worst kind of case. A kid is still inside the building with the cockroach.
Before entering the apartment, our main character, Kaoru Ashida, thinks back to his childhood, where his father died protecting him from a cockroach. He does that in order to remind himself what terror he's going to face. Together with Suzuki, (Ninja dude) Satou (Bazooka dude) and Takahashi, (Big hammer dude) the elite unit of Cockroach Busters infiltrate the building. Their mission? To get the child out alive, no matter the cost!
That's as far i can explain the story, without any spoilers.
The art is great! Incredibly well drawn explosions! Characters that look epic and badass. Murata once again proved, that he is a genius when it comes to drawing.
The only character that gets, well... literally ANY backstory is Kaoru Ashida. The others in the Gukiburi Buster squad also have their quirks and you can tell what their personality is like, just from their interactions with each other.
I fucking loved it! It's simple, stupid and over the top. It does not take itself seriously and i laughed out loud a few time when reading it.
Read it! It's funny, well drawn, and highly entertaining. The plot is okay and the other "plot" is good ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) read more
