just cause it's creative doesn't always make it "good", ya know?

Smells like fishfood.

FISH WITH LEGS!!! Genius!!!

Good story, plot and character depictions. The only thing to rant about is the ending, that's more or less a cliffhanger. But seeing the main character was always so persistant, you can assume they will eventually find the cure and save the world and so on.

A few hours of good reading when you're not eating fishfood. Warning: May cause hydrophobia.

Well, it was decent, I suppose. It wasn't all that horrorifying, and I read it simply to see if it got better. It was extremely original, though. It was kinda funny at some parts. Although, was I the only one who thought it didn't have much of a resolution?

EDIT: HA HA! I knew the art and main characters seemed familiar! He wrote/drew Uzumaki! It seems I like his work more then I thought.

man, this was so bad. i don't know how i struggled through it, maybe it was the fact that its only two volumes. i guess the story idea was ok, but after the first couple of chapters i was getting bored of it and wanted it to end. i guess the last mini story was ok, probably because it was so short, but honestly, save your time for something better.

This story has a classic feel to it. In the beginning the legged fish seems like a minor problem. (though strange) As the story progresses it gets more and more complicated. (and even weirder) I would like to see a sequel to this series. though, I'm sure that will never happen. The main character in this was cool. (such a nice person. Maybe even too perfect?) Also the second one shot at the end of the second volume was good. How does Junji Ito come up with these ideas?
