Feels like wasted potential.

"Kokumin Quiz" makes a strong first impression. Shinkichi's unique art style combines well with the dark humoured satire presented here, and quickly grabs your attention. Unfortunately, behind the hyperbolic, fast paced comedy of the first few chapters, lies a fairly shallow critique to dystopian political stories (and political systems in general), and about 2 volumes in, the manga loses its momentum completely. After a sloppy, disappointing character development arch for K-i K-ichi, all that waits you is an abrupt, rushed out and unsatisfying ending, that doesn't tie up any of the many loose ends the comic left. Still, it's an interesting piece, and would recommend it to anybody interested in Katou Shinkichi's art.

A thought provoking manga about turning a game show into a political system in which everyone has an equal opportunity of making their wishes come true. The art was a bit weird at first, but once I got used to it, the story sucked me in.

I liked the bizarre concept. It was refreshing to see something apart from the usual (although also fun) manga tropes. It was also nice to see some political/societal critique in a manga. (Can't say I agree, but it's nice to read something on a deeper level). Although the serious was interspersed with the silly.
Altogether, it was made by a writer and an artist who both experimented around, and the manga is enjoyable to read because of it.

Chaotic, Insane, Unique

The art has insane expressions. The premise is strange. The characters are not relateable. The plot is kind of one dimensional. The whole plot is made to outline the idea that man is inherently greedy. However, this is a good manga series. Why? Despite the one dimension-ness, it is an interesting premise with a fast and absolutely erratic pace. It is an acid trip on the pages of a manga. It is crazy, nonsensical, a little preachy, but most of all it is pretty fun. Do not expect anything from the characters or the plot. Just take it for what it is - one of the most insane manga you will ever read.

The ending sucked. Sure, but the emotion shown is amazing. Pay attention to K-i-K-i's expressive gestures and antics. Kyoko's wild eyes makes me want to topple a regime. The plot development is sloppy but it's certainly fun to read.

What would happen if the local and international politics of your country as well as the outcome of your life and others' could be influenced by a tv gameshow? Insanity, nationalism and even radicalism rule the National Quiz. A satirical take on the exam-loving Japan.

This is the funniest manga I have read in ages. It would make a great live action movie. They could even relocate it to the US.
