Description
Collection of short stories by Maruo.

It's almost impossible to summarize them, most of them aren't really plot driven but they deal with abnormal states of the mind and are permeated by a general surrealism.

As in many of this works, he shows references to the art and culture of 1920s and 1930s Japan and Germany which had inspired his own artistic style.

I read manga for its entertainment-value. I've never been a fan of any kind of poetry, it's a waste of time, and "art" have and always will be aimed at a certain type of people. "The ones who 'get it'". So if you're one of those that do, read this. But if you're not, don't, unless you like gore/boobs on paper.

Like most of Maruo-sensei's work, Paranoia Star is strange enough and intense enough to make the average person delusional. Beautiful art combined with brain-breaking mind-trips make this a sheer delight. Each story is centered around a different concept. For example, in one story, a young man starts seeing visions, and has to grapple with the very fabric of reality...
