Description
From Dark Horse:

These stories are told with the same bold, kinetic art style and brilliantly paced storytelling that Samura's Blade of the Immortal epic is famous for. The main offering, "Ohikkoshi," follows the turbulent paths of several twenty-something art students as they fall in love, fall in lust, play in rock bands, ride motorbikes, eat, sleep (together), and try to avoid making life decisions while drunk. This romantic comedy is a "Japanese art school confidential" packed with absurd humor, obscure death metal references, and some expertly placed, dramatic revelations. "Luncheon of Tears Diary" is a vibrant, genre-busting tale that also peppers its humor with sharp, dramatic moments. Natsumi Funabashi, a virgin, is an aspiring manga creator on a quest for love and a fulfilling career. Along the way, she has to cope with overzealous men, gang warfare, a mahjong addiction, and a lascivious manga editor. This collection is rounded off by Samura's hilarious "Kyoto Super Barhopping Journal: Bloodbath at Midorogaike," a rare, autobiographical travel piece.

I had yet to read a manga that left such an impression on me. This is good. Realistic in a funny and darkish way. Kind of remind of me of Yesterday o Utatte. The art is super good. The humor is special and original.

I enjoyed this very much. The first story was pretty good, I really liked how bitter but funny it was (there was a whole lot of unrequited love going on, so it's bittersweet in a good way) and I just LOVED the second story, "Luncheon of Tears Diary". That was dramatic, funny, entertaining, you name it. And the hero is a girl! Yay! Anyway, recommended.

All his work is worth reading. This unlike some of his one shots, or blade of the immortal, is a comedy, and is funny, especially considering some of his other works (Bradherley's Coach in particular). Very much worth the read. And as always, artwork is phenomenal, second to none.

I liked how the mangaka poked fun of cliched stuff that happens in manga. I enjoyed the main story and second story. The third story was kinda meh, probably because it was so short.

Puts the likes of Solanin and other student drama series to shame.

TO SHAME.
