If you're looking for something coherent to read, do yourselves a favour and don't read this.

If you're after something weird and non-sensical then you've come to the right place.

Not necessarily a good manga plot-wise or art-wise but an interesting curio nevertheless. The mangaka mixes various different bits of cultural influences (Kaiju, monster movies, african, polynesian? and quite some more) to create something like a weird acid trip.

It's basically a day in the life of box man. A guy on a scooter (his own or a stolen one if the circumstances call for it),accompanied by something that looks like a cat, who carries a box and his weird encounters. There's nothing deep or intellectually stimulating here as far as I can see. Just a weird non-sensical manga that's unlike other stuff I've read.

There's an unhealthy amount of cables drawn in this manga. My impression is that the mangaka is taking the piss out of what urban Japan itself looks like with the equally ridiculous amounts of cables hanging everywhere.
