To the users of mangaupdates,
please help me find any manga of any genre (yes, including even Mecha)
with a character/inanimate object/ ANYTHING SIGNIFICANT that is named Yorick.
I've got an obsession with the name, and would like to try read about it biggrin

Yours Truly,

The Yorick-Seeker

p.s.
(He's a guy from Hamlet, so shakespeare-ish mangas may be where he is located)

Does it have to be a manga?
Y - The Last Man is a graphic novel (American comic) with a main character named Yorick (because his dad was an English teacher obsessed with Shakespeare). True to his name he is a fellow of infinite jest. As a bonus the main character has a sister named Hero.

Lol. Would you also be fine when one letter is different? If so, then you can try Gangsta., because one of the main characters is called Worick. ^^

The dead Jester, hmm? I was going to suggest Gangsta. too, as there is a character named Worick, which is so close. bigrazz
Unfortunately, I think that and The Last Man are all you're going to get. Most mangas have Japanese names none

Unless you wanted an actual manga-retelling of Hamlet, where all you get is a skull: http://www.mangashakespeare.com/titles/hamlet.html ,

Well, there's a manga about Shakespeare (7-nin no Shakespeare), perhaps there is some Yorick (I haven't read it yet, so I don't know). I've recently read a book with a character named Caliban, and another with a dog named Oberon, but no Yorick so far.
