It all started with a "net cafe." The hero Toki Koichi is a soon-to-be father leading a complacent life. One day, he happens to stop by an internet cafe, and there he bumps into Kaho, his first love from his junior high school days. Having just fought with his wife, Koichi's heart is filled with his old feelings. All of a sudden, a strange wave flows through the computers and cell phones in the net cafe, and the entire place blacks out, just before rain begins to pour outside. Unable to leave safely, both Koichi and Kaho stay overnight at the net cafe. The next morning, when they step outside, they find the world is completely different. Koichi is determined to find out why the entire cafe has transported him to a different world, and to return to his family in the original world. As he fights against various fears and tries to solve the mystery, people start to disappear one after another. Can they all survive through such a crisis and what is the secret of his first love with Kaho?

Weird Stuff is Entertaining...   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

And Oshima is the king of thinking up weird stuff. Since manga is above all an entertainment medium, he's just what it needs. In this he reminds me of Stephen King.

Imagine trying to think up the eight millionth manga, or in the case of Stephen King, the millionth horror novel, when the pressure is on you to MAKE A LIVING from getting your creativity going! Most mangaka just take the easy way out and tell a slightly different version of one of the thousands of standard manga stories. Ditto popular novel writers. Only King and Oshima, these days, have the courage to unpack the sad, ugly, and weird things in their brain and make stories out of them.

That's the way you get remembered even after you're dead, like, say, H. P. Lovecraft. I love this guy!

Too dumb to recommend as a seinen

The only good thing is the graphic. The girls are pretty. That's it. The plot is bad, nonesensical but unlike "Lost", this one doesn't really serve any purpose, just a place to gather a bunch of characters to act out like brainless kids.

Yeah, as always, it's this author's style to have weak, indecisive MC. But as if it was not frustrating enough, the rest of the characters are also unbelievably bad: they are either stereotype bully, weak-willed salary zombies, or idiotic teenagers; a bunch of manchildren. I wonder if it reflects the mind of the author or the people of Japan, but they seriously have some issues as their mentality all got stuck in high school and never grew up. The same's with romance, i dunno if the author's married or not but obviously he doesn't really know how love works and maybe he's also got stuck with his first love or sweetheart.

It's too dumb to be considered as a seinen manga. I read the first few chapters in English then just scan through thr raw to finish it. It doesn't matter anyway; the plot doesn't make any sense and they all just stand there dumb with frustrating looks and blah. Give it a quick scan of you want to see some sex and gore, though most hentai'd have better plots; otherwise, stay the hell away from this garbage.

I read the raw and the ending is kinda weird one

it seems the main girl, Kaho was the illusions created by the MC and something like that

and by supernatural thing, all of them are actually "spirit" who have desire and get out from the main body.

In the end , all of the character we see all "spirit".

MC then go into dream world and meet all the spirit there(the net cafe)

In the end, all the people there commit suicede because they know they are fake

the MC then got dragged with the Main girl

the main girl ask him, is he want to come with her in this spirit world

he refused and he then wake up from his bed, his pregnant wife was beside him

skip skip skip

his wife give birth to his son

MC and his wife(who hold his baby) goes walk together till MC saw a net cafe similiar to the spirit world. He then go there and ask something but nothing he got. He then go outside the net cafe and meet with the main girl. She has long hair now, MC then pick up the phone , talking to her wife.

and then the end

we saw the "real" people who was spirit in the net cafe, doing their daily activities

Poor Oshimi Shuzo   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

The story is pretty average survival with a bunch of unique ideas. The first couple of volumes are quite slow and boring. The best part starts in later volumes and the ending is the real fun.

Be warned, there is much explicit sex, blood and death in this manga.

What needs a special mention is the afterword. Oshimi Shuzo wrote this story based on his first love from junior-high school days. That love was traumatic for him. That's fine. Everyone has one trauma in childhood. However, Shino-chan wa Jibun no Namae ga Ienai is also based on another traumatic experience from the author's past!

I'm afraid of reading the other stories from Oshimi Shuzo. It seems like he had really bad childhood. Maybe that's the reason why his stories are kinda twisted? biggrin
