September 11, 197x, In the whole Kantou region a magnitude 8-9 violent earthquake occurred. Scholars called it the great destruction of the Showa Era, but the people called it the earthquake from hell! Volcanoes erupted, buildings crumbled, Tokyo became decimated in a single day. The government, after failing to recover the city, abandons Tokyo and moves the capital. The survivors form a society with no laws. In this harsh lawless world emerges Jack, a 10 foot giant who annihilates anyone and anything in his path. The manga details his journey.

He's an idiot who didn't even read the manga, and spreading the word of an equally retarded Youtube Reviewer.

This is a classic manga for a reason, and it's nowhere near as bad or nasty as the 3-Part OVA.

This Slum King is well documented already and Bennett The Sage did not even review the equally abhorred ova which is banned in australia/germany when he reviewed in for real so you know what to expect.
Just look at (my) categories and know that cannibalistic futanari rape (yes that is a sentence) is a thing and not the worst part of the manga. Dick slicing and then devouring, child murder/rape and.. are in it too with no further meaning to back them up so this is basically gore porn only. The first few volumes were published as shonen so that is just lovely, the art is meh at best, the continuity and tone make no sense, the cameo´s are a disgrace and i hate these characters already so let´s stop. One day a group will unleash the entire thing on the world but i had my fill a decade ago. Till then you will have to imagine the fire or RUN FOR YOUR LIFE / SANITY!.
Why is this manga still ongoing from time to time? Sure it has no ending but it did enough harm already.
Berserk reigns supreme on the other end of the spectrum and only his Dante Shinkyoku (8,5/10) which i reviewed and to a lesser degree Mugen Utamaro (7/10) should be read but both are also adaptations.
Amon - Devilman Mokushiroku (6/10) is the only part of the Devilman(4/10) mythos i can give to other people without fearing a lawsuit btw. Fun fact: Sho Aikawa wrote the ova´s for V.J. and the one´s for Urotsukidoji too BUT he also wrote most of the first FMA anime so that puts it´s misguided gecko ending in perspective doesn´t it?
