Humans may be considered at the top of the food chain, but when people are in the presence of cockroaches, they cower in fear. Who can they turn to when faced with these insects? The Gokiburi Busters, who have yet to fail to eliminate a threat!
At one time or another, we've all seen them. They lurk within our houses, waiting for an opportune moment to strike when we least expect it. They're nearly invulnerable to nuclear attack, and are capable of flight and moving at high speeds. Just want kind of "thing" is this? Well, you'll have to read Gokiburi Buster to find out.
Gokiburi Buster is a oneshot written by ONE (One-Punch Man) and drawn by Yusuke Murata (Eyeshield 21, One-Punch Man redraw). At the risk of spoiling this very short single chapter, I'll refrain from posting any plot details
as a big part of the enjoyment is just reading it for yourself. I would recommend just about anyone give this a shot, especially if you enjoy the work of ONE and Murata. Both authors have done a wonderful job making this a very enjoyable, albeit short, read that has some kickass art to go along with it. For how enjoyable it is at such a short length, it gets a hearty recommendation from me.
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 ͡°)
THIS IS THE BEST ONE CHAPTER MANGA I HAVE EVER READ!!! I MEAN..... HOW THE **** DO YOU MAKE KILLING A COCKROACH MORE EXCITING THAN THIS MANGA?!?!
Please be aware that guns, grenades, and flamethrowers are used in this manga. Also, be advised that multiple casualties will occur in this "possibly suicidal" mission.
Story: 10 (for a one chapter manga to deliver such quality content? 10)
Art: 10 (the artist for ONE PUNCH MAN! He has yet to fail us in this short manga)
Character: 10 (it is short, but the characters are well drawn and shown)
Enjoyment: 10 (if this is not a 10, then this will
be 11. My stomach hurts after this because it is amazingly funny)
OVERALL: EASILY A 10!!!
If you are afraid of cockroaches, do not call any help from the Gokiburi Busters. But if you insist on calling, make sure that you paid insurance for your house.
