i read this manga quickly, it reminded me of battle royale because each character had his own problems and lead them to make mistakes and get judged by the vengeance act. Its not really fair to compare the two mangas though because the Kano is insane and is just trying to understand the world he's living in. this manga was really memorable though, if you're mature enough to read it. It's also kinda like homonculus, the main character is just confused and trying to adjust but he has a lot of problems and the ending is ambigous but sad.

I like the plot because it was different, along with the insane protagonist, but it eventually got confusing for me. There are many unnecessary pages in this manga like the debate over the killing law and the war. The discussion of the war is a waste of pages because the author kept on mentioning it and nothing came out of it. The discussions were really boring for me and I eventually started to skim them.

I didn't like the ending because it is ambiguous. I agree that this manga is for certain audiences, so you have to read it to find out your taste. Overall, it was good and I like the twist in this manga.

Probably one of the best manga's that I've read. A little creepy with all the mind games but really plays on what is conceivable as reality.
Several plot twists in the story, and while the ending being slightly confusing, once I understood everything, I feel that the entire story was well executed.

its something that you must read in its entirely and understand it to truly appreciate

Hard to give the opinion on this manga because not only it had the original concept story (vengeance using proxy agent), but it also had a unique main character, and realistic story overall, but at the same time, it is not targeted to the mainstream audience in the way that the story being told was too "deep" to some of people that can be labelled as boring or non make any sense at all.

I do find this manga is very intriguing to read. A lot of psycho babble in this manga that actually does make sense if you think about it, and it's true when you apply that sort of thing in the real world.

This manga really doesn't hold any punches, it tells the story as it doesn't shield a particular character from plot armor. Every character you see in this manga have some sort of flaw, and there's no such thing as a black and white / good vs evil setting , only grey area.

If you are not in the right mindset, and doesn't like to think things a lot, then probably you don't like this manga. But if you are like me... you have to read it.

Probably one of the best seinen manga I have ever read. Trully embodied what its like to be in "seinen" genre.

Continual adversities, problems, indelible hindrances, negative emotions and the war within as these elements manifest in one form or the other to impede whatever you're willing to do. Some people face that war for the first time while striving hard to live as per their ideals while some succumb in it and die and the successful ones accept themselves and form a harmony.

It's a character driven manga with much emphasis in their portrayal in a scenario fraught with problems to portray those three aspect of life I have written above in a manner (with quaint artwork) that I have never seen in any other manga. They are good but this one is original in its own way

Well, the story and the character from the author works is all weird and somehow funny. But his works is good, and always makes me think about something after read it. And this Freesia, lol, Kano is crazy..

Holy fucking shit .This is ,this is ...... epicccccccccccccc. One of the manga has the epic ending . I was kinda scare that the manga will end in confusion ,unsatisfied shit like other seinen manga i have read , guess what is not . The 2 last chaper are breathtaking so fucking awesome , The story over all is very interested and amusing , the character develope petty well as for me i like kano character develope most (Because his is a epic main char) . It aslo very dark and pretty deep , some chapter i have to read over and over to graps it meaning ( i think ?) .The nudity and gore may be make you feel a little uncomfortable at first but more you read it ,you will ignored it pretty fast and it also make the story more dark feeling in it . The art honestly was not my type of art , althought i may fit the story well give us more mind fucked feeling. Freesia over all was a very good manga and the ending was the thing i enjoy the most , make it even more epic ( Kano so fucking badass )

Jiro Matsumoto is a smart author with a whole lot of intriguing ideas, but I just couldn't really get into this one. This may just be my brain not being able to wrap my mind around Matsumoto's superior intellect, but it seemed as if the manga just sort of floated on with nothing much to say. There's an interesting philosophical inquiry or psychological idea here or there, but nothing to really latch onto. I think one of the reasons for this is due to the lack of a "normal" character that the reader can identify with. Kano is out-of-this-world crazy, Mizoguchi is an objectively terrible person, we're never really able to see the events through Higuchi's eyes, and Yamada, the closest thing the manga has to an average human being, is bland and uninteresting. However, I'm sure dedicated readers (who don't mind the rough artwork) can find much depth here, especially if they're a fan of Matsumoto's other work. Unfortunately, Matsumoto didn't draw me into his characters and world enough to really make me care about what he's trying to say.

Just finished re-reading it a second time.
I can honestly say that I did not notice nudity or gore... or more like, it was there I guess, but ... after Berserk pretty much any amount of nudity and gore seems average.

I liked Kano. Paradoxically, he seemed to be the most sane character in the manga (especially out of the main cast). He kept searching for himself and for the reason people do things.

It was also funny how people reacted to Kano.

I have respect for the coffee-house waitress.

To me this was kind of funny and very good. Maybe I have a strange sense of humor but parts of this were funnier than most comedies I've read. Like for example when Kano and Kieta were watching tv, she flipped it to a channel with static and he said that that channel was fine, and he stared at it for a long time. I think Kano is just a wonderful and very interesting character in general and he's hard to figure out. I think thats what makes him so interesting. About him being apathetic. Yes, he is very apathetic but its not too unrealistic their are people out there like that, and plus he is

insane to begin with.
This manga reminded me of Eden (ENDO Hiroki) in some ways. The way the story was told. But the difference between them, and one reason I think its so good is
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
he tried to tell basically a hopeless society using more psychological roots.
Idk if thats really a spoiler but anyway. The art style was very nice. It was dark and sketchy and definitely set the mood. The characters were wonderful, all of them. They were not the best characters in the world but i thought they were unique and pretty well developed. I was confused about one thing and the ending was confusing but it was supposed to be. Overall wonderful ending and awesome manga, Jiro has my respect.
