Preliminary
OYASUMI PUN PUN, has nothing to do with this manga but if you've read it you might notice some similarities between these. Both have lots of surrealism and extremely depressing circumstances, and both seem like an outlook into literal insanity. Both follow a single main character and his story, and both end like shit lol but more on that later

It's psycho-horror thats what it is, especially in the later chapters. Never before have you watched someone go crazy in such a natural way. This is the epitome of a unique manga, which may seem stupid to say after i start with a series of parallels read more

This is manga is about Munsu, who is the last Angyo Onshi, peacekeepers from the fallen kingdom of Jushun who wander the land defeating corrupt lords and generally being of benefit to the people. However Munsu is an asshole, and stands out greatly from a wide spectrum of other protaganists even in the anti-hero classification. Angyo Onshi do not have any special powers or special skills, in fact Munsu's superhuman abilities are nonexistant compared to not only antagonists but even less relevant side characters. He is however, very smart, and also has an amulet called the Mahai, something that is his badge as an Angyo read more

Kokou no Hito is about Mori, a young, very angsty and lifeless man who initially transfers to a new high school. In 1-2 chapters Mori is goaded by a classmate into climbing up the school building and seemingly in a trance, he does so, almost killing himself in the process as he climbed up a small pipe 4 stories up. After being scolded heavily and slapped in the face by Onishii-sensei, he is encouraged to take up climbing and take part in a local contest, of which he initially refuses but ends up going through a series of events. Mori realizes rather unconciously, as he read more

Sun Ken Rock is about a Japanese man named Ken. Ken's love interest Yumin moves to Korea to become a police officer, and Ken follows her to impress her with success. In a ridiculously short time he becomes the leader of one of the largest criminal organizations in the world, with a shitload of some of the most insane plot twists and over the top martial art fights I have ever seen in a manga in between. Make no mistake that this is predominantly an action manga, but by no means does that mean the characters were left out of the loop. Ken is like read more

Blame! (Manga) add (All reviews)
To put it simply, there is a reason Blame is such a renowned cult hit. It's art style is both captivating and horrifying, it's story extremely minimal, it's atmosphere thick as syrup, and with it Blame has always been seen as a modern classic of cyberpunk and experimental manga. If you are in for something strange and off the beaten path then you will surely enjoy this bizarre and complex piece of cheese.

Blame is about a lone wanderer named Killy, who in keeping up with cyberpunk standards, is not 100% human. Killy begins a quest to find net terminal genes, a genetic code that may read more

Certainly a weird one this is. It's a short take on the first parts and prologue of Journey to the West that ends up being ridiculously violent and dark. Goku ends up being more of a cannibalistic monkey Conan the Barbarian then the Zen Buddhist heaven revolutionist he is in the original. Regardless, its a pretty cool one just because of how strange the choreography of the action scenes and of course the art, the art being completely in color and in a very sketchy style and blotted style. It works well with the demonic character designs and hellish enviroments that Goku is pictured in, read more

Feng Shen Ji goes hand-in-hand with a certain concept in reading and enjoying manga (or alot of things for that matter) that I like to call Closed Accomplishment. A manga with closed accomplishment is one that is not trying to be stunning in every category of writing etc, rather it attempts to be the very best at what it is at its core. Feng Shen Ji is just Feng Shen Ji, and because of that can be enjoyed in a sort of vaccuum, with there being no need to judge it in numerous factors to enjoy it fully, this being due to its unique artwork read more

It's very hard to classify this manga. It's a comedy, an action, a slice of life, a drama, and a psychological all rolled into one, with respective attributes shown throughout the manga, some alot while others not as much. Upon reading the first 3 chapters, I doubt anyone would have thought that there are several tragedies throughout this manga, how it could it pull it off with all the silliness. It's a jack of all trades of genres, with all of their best accompanying aspects and little of their tropes and bad parts, it is a manga about a suicide pact between a girl who read more

Dorohedoro is an amazing fantasy manga by Hayashida Q, notable for being a studio assistant to Nihei before making the Maken X manga adaptation. The story starts off in a dimension called the Hole, which more or less is a very run down and dangerous world that looks like what San Francisco would if the nukes dropped. Kaiman and Nikaido, the two central protagonists, are attacking two people identified as magic users, those who can spray black smoke from their hands to cause an effect of some sort, although the particular usage of the magic smoke is unique to each user. After subduing one, Kaiman read more
