Description
Staffed by murderous maids and situated on a war-ravaged island, the Voynich Hotel is far from your run-of-the-mill vacation destination--but it’s not such a bad place to lie low for ex-yakuza Kazuki Taizou, who’s on the run from his so-called family. As he settles into his weird new life, this darkly comedic manga winds through plots both nefarious and romantic, delving ever deeper into the island’s witchy--and sometimes demonic--strangeness.

Perfectly mad

First off, if, like me, you were drawn to this manga because of it being classed as "horror", prepare to be a little let down. It's not even faintly spooky. The good news is that this is a razor-sharp piece of utterly insane dark comedy. Its overall structure takes the approach of throwing a dozen different plot threads at the wall and seeing how they crisscross, and it works well. There's hardly an unentertaining character in the lot, and the pace is kept brisk and fun. It's packed with often dark, occasionally gory, and frequently inappropriate comedy on an ever-expanding (and contracting) roster of wonderfully bizarre characters. It's not the sort of thing I'm normally into, but I just can't say boo to something with this sense of uninhibited, risk-taking, ribald fun.

This manga offers a unique blend of trippy comedy and horror. The characters are an interesting bunch, you learn something new (and totally strange) about them in each chapter.

Great blend of humor, drama and fantasy elements

The story is a mix of supernatural and the mundane, with dark humor being the predominant element, and frequent episodes of drama that, thankfully, are also played for laughs (most of the time) keeping the comedy aspect of the series consistent. Many interesting and unique characters are featured, each with their own backstory and motivation, and even though there are a few obvious archetypes, they are still compelling and sympathetic to the last, even the more antagonistic ones.

Although I feel like the series could have been longer, it ends without any unresolved plot threads and wraps up every character's story nicely, leaving a few hooks that would allow for a continuation. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys dark, sometimes morbid humor, although it features its fair share of more light-hearted moments.

IMHO Douman Seiman is one of the most talented Mangakas around - especially when he turns his hand to comedy. He has a quite unique off-the-wall sense of humor. This title only reinforces that opinion for me.

Verdict: wonderful

This is my favorite thing Dowman Sayman has done. Wrote about it in a long review. This manga COMPLETELY does its own thing and seemingly lacks a plot. It's like looking into a surreal realm of magic, ghosts, and drugs. Funny, cute, funny, depressing, funny, perverted; it's good.

Just Amazing

Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
This story seems so weird and random, told in short chapters that often seem unrelated. Yet by the end literally every story thread comes together in a beautiful, logical conclusion! (Except one minor thread that's just for laughs it seems)
The characters are endearing and adorable. The villains are despicable but still full of character too, not cut-outs. The situation is... highly unusual but that's the charm that holds your attention. So many mysteries to solve!
From an eye that falls out to the aspirations of isolated kids on a small island, the story, art and characters make it unforgettable. EZ 10/10

It was good read. Really liked it. But I didn't laugh in the whole 3 volumes and I can't give a higher rating to a comedy if It didn't make me laugh.
This is completely subjective, overall I think it's worth reading.

A Good Read

Definitely something to check out. The short chapter length can be a bit disconcerting on some chapters, but don't let that deter you!
It has a good mix of genres that do well.

The chapter sizes are way too small. The panel layout isn't in a 4-koma format either so some chapters will end awkwardly or with a non-obvious cliffhanger. If you read multiple chapters in a row, its a pretty good read.

Edit: Wow wow wow. Now that a whole volume has been translated this is fantastic! Even though the chapters still end on open ended cliffhangers and the cast has gotten fairly large, the story is fantastically morbid. Its one of those "you'll get it when you read it" and thats why the only thing I can say is: go read this now!
