the art, is absolutely not trying to be "artsy" that is the style of the 80's and this mangaka just draws like that, and when what you draw naturally can fool others then that's a plus.

as for the plot they where little short noir stories, nothing more. i liked the 1st one, and the 2nd one was as pointless as it gets, i mean the hell was that if you are going to kill him anyways?

i'm sorry....but this is outdated and pretentious...stories don't have any depth or intelligence whatsoever

art is really outdated...it pretends to be something it isn't...it wants to be artsy but it fails miserably and comes out only as pretentious in the end

definitely not a must read
