Something New... Something Good...

I've never found anything like this series. Aside from it being a dark comedy, with gore on one hand and light-hearted humor on the other, I'm surprised toward the fact that the protagonist is female, plus a lesbian and overpowered as well. Her sidekick is an innocent girl who's able to drive a sports-car, plus every now and then she gets to defy physics + make an occasionally silly face given the situation. Quite the interesting duo I have to say...

As a psychopathic killer employed by the government, it's nice to see the manga trying to be self-aware at times: Whenever Kuroko goes around doing her job (killing other psychopaths with a smile on her face), the government has to argue during the aftermath about whether she's too much of a loose-canon (for the constant destruction), or the asset they need for when things get really difficult.

To sum things up: The series so far has about 11 chapters out, and even before it's had that many, it still offers a lot of different elements to just have fun with it.
I'm fully aware that this series isn't quite for everyone, but compared to a lot of other series that don't have much to really offer, it seems kind of harsh to condemn it as something utterly stupid...

Showpony manga, nothing more.

It tries way too hard; it seems to think combining dark, sadistic themes with comedy equates to quality, when that couldn't be further from the truth.

The writing is completely devoid of wit & intelligence and all it really is, is a bunch of characters acting insane & it expects the audience to laugh.

Dark, and yet, interesting yuri manga.

This was an interesting turn to what the average Yuri manga is. There's comedy, like in other series, but the main character is not your typical protagonist that goes around saving the innocnet. She's a psychopath, serial killer that seems to care little for anyone or anything, except herself and cute girls. There's little, if any, signs of romance, but instead, the female protagonist only care about sleeping around with hot girls, and she's good at it. This isn't something for the weak of heart, there's blood, corpses, pretty much gore, not everywhere, but when there is, you can easily see it.

If you want a Yuri manga that is very unique on its own right, then this is the one for you.

Characters sell the story. The main character, Kuroko, will attract readers who want an unconventional female lead. An eccentric pervert and psychotic serial killer, she brings comedic relief while reveling in the gore and explicit sex. Murcielago feels like a dark comedy. A light-hearted ambiance where you see people being mutilated and murdered...and yet, you'll smile throughout. Recommended to those who want something fun included in their edge.
