From the creators of Deadman Wonderland comes Edgy Gory Avengers Against FNAF Characters with Added BL. In other words, Smokin' Parade. And maybe Suicide Squad.
First of all, this is nothing like Deadman Wonderland. It is completely different aside from the art style. If you've read a summary, it's about a boy who joins an organization against these things called "Spiders."
As of now the manga has six chapters and the plot is basically: "Let's go around doing missions and killing Spiders." with some black comedy and every chance to add gore scenes and uncomfortable, crazed faces to make the reader uncomfortable. Heck, the first chapter is basically shock value 101.
Artwork is great if you're a fan of this mangaka. I don't particularly enjoy how the panels are and how everyone always makes inhuman poses when they are fighting, etc and half of the time I don't know what is actualy happening. Why they take every chance a character appears to make an outlandish, edgy face while showing off how cool and fucked up they are, who knows, but coming from Deadman Wonderland I expected this. Like I said, Suicide Squad.
The characters are outlandish and unrealistic. Very little backstory is given of them. The protagonist is stale, a goody-two-shoes and seemingly weak right now but will turn awesome some day. I don't have to read any more chapters to know this. Go Ganta 0.2
You're probably wondering why I mentioned BL, well there seems to be some strange relationship between the leader of the organization and the MC, and there's a member who is obsessed with the leader and jealous of the MC for getting so much attention from his boss(crush). Also look at those covers, need I say more?
There's also some strange steam punk going on even if its set in Modern Japan. And the scientific aspect of everything that is even supposed to be happening on what the Spiders are but that dwells into spoilers.
I don't believe Smokin' Parade will get better, as of now it just stands as a typical, gory action packed manga with no sense of direction in the plot and a lot of scenes of blood and limbs used for shock value. Also fan service, can't forget that.
If you enjoy manga with a cast of characters in an organization of morally ambiguous heroes who are wacky and fucked up and seeing the development of a boring MC who is typical of this type of genre this is the manga for you. read more
