Neuro is the best!!!

Truly, one of the coolest manga around. Sure, the mysteries could be better but hell, with Neuro as the detective or "assistant" it adds a very interesting appeal.The artworks at the beginning of the series aren't that pretty but later on it'll get better.
If you guys wanna see how cool (and psychotic) Neuro is, I suggest reading Chapter 138: The Sadist. Neuro is someone you wouldn't want to mess with. ^^

over all i thought the plot had an interesting idea and the mysteries could be pretty cool but the art is soooo bad at times it makes it hard for me to continue reading it. like, the art is pretty good for some of the creepy scenes where neuro goes to his demon form, but for the manga style comedy pics, the art looks like an amateur drew it....

Im gonna push through though in hopes of the art improving, or that i can get hooked by the plot enough to continue reading without anymore hitches.

I'm not sure about most other people, but I found this manga to be very good. Yes, I started out with the anime as well, and I found it hilarious, though the first few episodes are kind of boring.

The manga kicked in, and once I started to read about Kaitou "X" and HAL, it was completely amazing. It's like suspense added in with out-of-this-world weirdness.

The first time I read Neuro was almost two years ago, and I was already blown away by the manga. Recently, I'm very thankful to Anonymous for translating chapters so fast everyday because it doesn't create any gaps between story lines, and the point of each story flows freshly in my mind. But other than that, it's because I really love the series smile .

IMO, I think the art is very unique and stylish. Even though sometimes it may look weird, it adds to the overall effect of the story.

As for the story itself, I find each chapter to be meaningful. After each little arc, I find myself thinking a lot about what the author points out about human life. Also, Yako doesn't seem to be as useless as most people see her. She's like a mediator between the readers and the criminal characters; she's the one who asks why they commit the crime. At first it was not as noticeable but, with each new arc, she's providing more and more insight for readers. Then again, that's just my opinion. Maybe I am reading too much into the manga, but I still deeply enjoy it.

I highly recommend this series, if you can overlook the art and enjoy a little thinking, or if you just want to see Neuro torture Yako lol.

Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro is definitely a manga worth reading. Creative, funny, original, it's one of those that you really can't put down. The serious and main situations (meaning not the short ones in the beginning) in the manga are well developed and complex, making it exciting enough for any reader to want to know what happens next. I also watched the manga, and while I do prefer the manga in the way that the events occur the anime is also quite entertaining.
Even though some of the art are considered disturbing by some readers, I think it adds well to the impact of the story, and it's a series that I definitely recommend people read smile

I just got to share my cup here.
What first got me into the manga was actually the anime, which I thought was pretty awesome from the few episodes I had seen. Then I picked up the manga, and wow..The art is amazing, and by art I mean everything. Sure some people are bugged of by the characters..but what I see in art is the whole package. The perspective usage, the crazy demon tools, all the monsters design, just brilliant in my wannabe artist eyes. Then comes the story..I'm just a sucker for DemonXcute girl combos, even more if their relationship is kinda sm biggrin All the tantei work is really just beside the point, but I enjoy it anyway. Neuro rocks, and you should definitely pick this up ^_^

it's addicting even thought it's not that great..
the art is unique, the mangaka really has a twisted mind =_=!.. but it's fun to watch all thouse strang drowings..
tossing the detective part aside (since it's not really that good, and there is no idea, plus the reasons always stuped)
the manga is nice to read.. i like neuro and his way of tolrating yako all the time, trying to kill her bigrazz (and he is cute somehow)
i guss the mangaka is getting better in the latest Volumes..

@ Ichi1, I believe the mangaka a lot of time deliberately makes the art ugly to add to the horror and suspenseful atmosphere. It gets more complicated in the latter volumes. I guess the anime has "prettier" the art a bit, makes it less horror like.

Anime is better

IMO, the anime version is way better than the manga.
Just for the fact that the art is totally ugly in the manga and they made it bearable in the anime.
The detective part is not really entertaining, the culprits are quickly find and they are immediatly eaten after showing their ugly side. There is a lack of suspense and elaborate tricks like we can find with Conan, tantei gakuen Q, etc...
The only funny thing is the way neuro treats yako.
