Impressions so far: Freesia is utter shit and Mikai no Hoshi is manipulative garbage.

So far I've only read 2 of his works, I was intrigued by Netsutai no Citron but am definitely a fan after Mikai no Hoshi. Can't wait to read the rest of his manga wish they would get English print releases scans suck.

Freesia and Netsutai no Citron were really good.

Thank you Sarah Horrocks for writing the best review of his art style

This is the writing of a person who gets it.

Gosh, after reading Freesia, and the first two volumes of Alice in Hell... I really love how his works have this cinematic feel to them.
From the camera angles he uses in each panel, to the vibrant sound effects permeating each page, bringing sound and life to the presentation... it really makes him one of my favorite mangaka, currently.

I wish one of his works would be adapted to an anime at some point... I bet Masaaki Yuasa could do a fantastic adaptation, in terms of look & feel. A collaboration between the two of them on a project would be even better. It's something I fantasize about occasionally.

Severely underrated. Obviously his way of story-telling and obscured art style is not for everyone, actually it is for a very limited audience. Look past those and you are in for some crazy moments while reading his works. Don't drink the Desert Witch's urine!

If you don't like his style it doesn't mean he's bad, actually he distinguish oneself because of his original style like Blame! by Tsutomu Nihei. If you like stamped shit then just leave this page.

I wish his art style wasn't so dirty at times. It comes off as sketchy and amateurish.
So much sex in his manga.

Mikai no Hoshi is incredible
