After The Biggest, Most Awful, Most Tragic Event in Human History, an organization known as Future Foundation was created in order to save the world. In addition, the Special Crime Investigations division was formed with the sole purpose of investigating bizarre and grotesque murders. Their newest recruit, Misaki Asano, is bright, cheerful, and despises gore—yet that does not stop her from striving to bring light in a world ridden with despair.
Partnered with the eccentric slob Takumi Hijirihara, Misaki's first job is to investigate the discovery of several corpses at an idol's concert. Although Hijirihara has solved the case swiftly, the culprit is soon discovered cleanly dismembered by a mysterious murderer of murderers known as "Killer Killer." Only leaving behind a cute note at the scene of the crime, Killer Killer has been eluding the Foundation for a long time, but the mastermind behind these slaughters may be closer than they realize.
There's one thing for sure that I can say without a doubt about this manga...
WHAT A WASTE OF POTENTIAL!!!ri
This manga is the spin-off for the anime Danganronpa 3 The End of Kibougamine Gakuen that pretty popular at the time.
Our MC name Hijihara Takumi (that looks very similar to Hikigaya 8man from Oregairu for some reason) is a serial murderer that kill other serial murderer because they lack the passion for their murder. It's pretty refreshing to see this plot because rather than a vigilante for justice, there is a lot of potential in this character.
There's also our other main character, which is a girl
names Asano Misaki who is a newbie in the office.
There are other characters as well... But they never got mention after just one chapter. And no, they're not the victim's families or suspects, they're suppose to be their associates.
Now, there's a lot of problem in this manga, but I'll start with the investigations.
They just skip it with the words "I know passionate murders" and just skip to the finishing story. I mean, Danganronpa is indeed bizarre but it's still a mystery game with a fun investigations and figuring out who's the murderer is. But this manga just said fuck all tigations, let's get to the part he kills someone already!"
And than there's the story... now, the plot itself is quite interesting. A vigilante seeking to grading murders after murders, and kill the person if their murders aren't meeting his standard. But seeing the misteries uncover themselves without giving the readers any evidences to solve it feels bad
The cameo is... pathetic. They show for one chapter, only to go away for the rest of the series without any significant effect to the story. They're just... there.
Some of the part where Killer Killer kills someone is just to OP for Danganronpa universe. This might doesn't mean much to some people, but seeing someone cut one whole roof with a simple knife seems too out of the world for me, especially when Danganronpa's murders are usually done rather normally (except the execution of course)
Overall, this show has an interesting premise. Just fix the investigation, fix the story, make the characters more compelling, make the investigations better, and make the cameo of the Ultimates matter. With "just" that, this manga will become something worth reading
