Suda51, founder of developer Grasshopper Manufacture is one of my favourite figures in gaming. His punk sense of style and strange mixture of philosophy and dick jokes gives him a unique flavour even among Japan’s most quirky of creators. Unfortunately, not everyone of his projects has turned out the best. In the late 2000s Suda was working with a lot of western companies that definitely wanted to market his wacky Asian game maker status and not much else. One such work, ‘Shadows of the Damned’ was a fun third person shooter but lacked Suda51 more charming writing that went behind all the funny visuals. According read more

Kurayami Dance or Dance in the Darkness, is a short manga, with only 20 chapters. It reads like a novel,ie. it is unlike your everyday manga, where there is a highschool, heroes, villains,etc.

Story:
There story is surrealistic, we don't know what is true and what is a figment of imagination. Still, it is interesting. Had the manga stretched for more than 20 chapters, I might've been bored.

Art:
The art is clean, easy on the eyes.

Characters:
There is a protagonist, and a handful others, we don't spend much time with a character to relate. But this style suits this manga.

Enjoyment:
On its own, I found the ride to read more

Kurayami Dance is one of the most unique mangas I've ever read. It feels like someone's personality in both text and drawing are imbued into every page of this 2-volume story. It's one of my favorites not just because of the witty dialogue or the stunning art (which is what hooked me in the beginning), but also the concepts that, although seemingly distant from each other, are all closely aligned.

Premise: Wataru Kaido is an undertaker by day, motorcyclist at night, and in chapter 1 he seeks to go past 300 miles per hour on the mountain roads because he's "in a rush to live." read more
