Description
After miraculously surviving a freak helicopter accident, Hikari "Picasso" Haruma finds that he somehow has the power to help people through his art. He is helped by his friend, Chiaki Yamamoto, who was killed in the helicopter accident, but came back as an angel. According to Chiaki, when the accident happened, both she and Picasso died, but she begged God to save him because of his wonderful talent. As a result, Picasso survived the accident on condition that he saves other people.

Basically, when he sees someone in trouble, Picasso's able to draw a picture symbolizing the person's problem and then enter that picture to see that person's hidden feelings, and use that knowledge to help them in the real world.

I don't usually take artwork into account, but it's really amazing to see such precision on detail. It's really beautiful. Personally I think the stories are sort of....ridiculous, but the personification gives it some depth that cannot be ignored. Also, like many before me have mentioned, it's funny. I'm more interested in the main character than anything else.

I read a lot of manga in the last few weeks and this is probably the best.

I'm a fan of Furuya Usumaru as his mangas always look smart. In this case i wasn't aware it's one of his manga because i have a long list of manga to read and i was just picking them randomly.
By the middle of the first chapter i realized this is special and i looked for more info discovering who its mangaka was.

There are a few reasons why i didn't give it a ten. Drawing looks ordinary, i'd like it if he would stick to the stories and leave the drawing to someone else, he doesn't seem to improve from manga to manga. All his text looks crowded on the page. Yes, i'm used to it, but it could be better.
Story that matters is too short. I wouldn't say the individual cases were all fillers, but i'm not a fan of episodic cases. This being said, i was crying like a little girl in the last chapter. Is was a fine ending.

Definitely an above average manga.

I used to get a lot of nightmares based on not scary, but disturbing and shifting imagery, and some of the imagery in the "picture symbolizing the person's problem" (see summary) could trigger that sort of thing.

But the intensity of images in the situation before make the resolution afterward so much more appealing and satisfying. And I like how
Spoiler (highlight to view)
the main character gains respect as he progresses, even if it's only a little respect mixed in with a lot of "What the hell are you doing?" His world is slowly opening up in spite of himself.


Right now, I have volume one checked out from the library (and I urge everyone who can't buy much manga to ask your library to carry the titles you love). I didn't read it last night, but I looked forward to my second reading of it this morning.

Another great work from this mangaka. The drawings are top-notch and the plot is so interesting! Never seen anything like this. Main character is likeable and funny in that slightly dorky way of his.

Edit: read all of it now thanks to Viz Media. I'm so sad to see it finish at 3 volumes, but for a series that ended short the ending was wrapped up beautifully. It all fit. Plus it's just awesome that the protagonist is an artist and the manga really focuses on art itself. The last chapter was... touching. Made me cry. >< I love how both surreal and REAL the manga was.

This was a huge surprise as when first read about it thought it would be just ok at best but when actually read it, it turned out to be excellent now can not wait for next chapter to read. Hope becomes available to by in the U.K.

10/10.

So cruel and such a shame for them to stop updating this amazing series.

P,S. Only bad thing is groups wont update this the CENSORED people.

P<S Only bad thing is no updates as group wont do any more the CENSERD lol.
