Yeah yeah, this is guro, I know, how dare the author draw something like that, you've never seen anything like this, you can't even, sure.
I know this whole dance, the encounter with a kind of manga you didn't expect to read, but does guro really deserve the lowest of marks just for being guro? Does a porn deserve to be trash talked just for being porn?
Tasatsu Shigan might have some explicit imaginery, but it isn't really so bad. You could even say that it's creative, in a way. It caters to very unusual fetish of suicide (fetish so obscure it might as well be fabricated),
but makes the scenario a bit more interesting than just plain death. Perhaps it even touches upon the theme of euthanasia and whether a person has to right to end their own life should they wish to do so. Perhaps that is just looking into it more then the author intended. Who knows. Still, being what it is, it's certainly not bad as a guro manga. There are of course better works, but there are also much, much worse ones. This one could even be labeled as in a twisted way wholesome, and honestly concerning the content, I've read regular horror manga with way worse gore.
I wouldn't say this deserves 1/10 or 2/10 just for simply having some fucked up content.
