The first time I read Neuro was almost two years ago, and I was already blown away by the manga. Recently, I'm very thankful to Anonymous for translating chapters so fast everyday because it doesn't create any gaps between story lines, and the point of each story flows freshly in my mind. But other than that, it's because I really love the series smile .

IMO, I think the art is very unique and stylish. Even though sometimes it may look weird, it adds to the overall effect of the story.

As for the story itself, I find each chapter to be meaningful. After each little arc, I find myself thinking a lot about what the author points out about human life. Also, Yako doesn't seem to be as useless as most people see her. She's like a mediator between the readers and the criminal characters; she's the one who asks why they commit the crime. At first it was not as noticeable but, with each new arc, she's providing more and more insight for readers. Then again, that's just my opinion. Maybe I am reading too much into the manga, but I still deeply enjoy it.

I highly recommend this series, if you can overlook the art and enjoy a little thinking, or if you just want to see Neuro torture Yako lol.

I just gotta say the character creation: name, skills, abilities, design of this manga is by far one of the strongest i have read so far... It's amazing how the mangaka elaborates preety deep characters and awesome word games.

This is my favorite series. Personally, I think this is one of the most unique and ingenious manga series ever. The characters are amazing and it's just pure fun to read. I think that it's really a lot better than the anime as it gives more detail to the plot and the identities of the characters. If the art turns you off at first, just get used to it and it won't even matter. I actually quite like the art. (It gets better later on, anyway.) Despite what it may look like at first glance (a murder-mystery type series) I almost want to say that this is a comedy, because many parts of it is just so hilarious.

Truly, one of the coolest manga around. Sure, the mysteries could be better but hell, with Neuro as the detective or "assistant" it adds a very interesting appeal.The artworks at the beginning of the series aren't that pretty but later on it'll get better.
If you guys wanna see how cool (and psychotic) Neuro is, I suggest reading Chapter 138: The Sadist. Neuro is someone you wouldn't want to mess with. ^^

I love everything about this manga. The plot is amazing and whats even more amzing is the character development. The only thing that you would have to get a bit used to is the art, but other than that this is one of the best i've read. I love shoujo manga (I know that this isn't shoujo but anyways) so I was sort of hoping that the main characters got together XD, but I can live without it.

This is possibly my favourite manga. One thing i love about it is it fits into almost no genre entirely. Its funny, psychotic, action, psychological and in a way mystery, and blends all this together fantastically. I say in a way mystery because the emphasis is usually less on figuring out the crime and more on the motivation of the criminal. Exploring what drives people to commit crimes and seeing their various motivations is fantastic, especially the variation from those who kill for stupid reasons and those who kill for great ones, to the point you truly sympathise with them. Its a real change from most detective stuff.

The Manga is filled with interesting characters, all of them beautifully filled out. The main villain for the majority of the manga is especially well done, a boy with amnesia who treats humans like his playthings as he trys to discover who he is, and his assistant whose roles are in complete contrast to Neuro and Yako's relationship.

I have actually bought the manga, but unfortunatly it was done far smaller than most so when you read it online its usually three or four times its real size so the resolution gets screwed. Despite this i adore Matsui's artwork. Whilst the majority is the standard affair, he then splits into this great style of surrealism every so often, which more than makes up for the fact he has to cut back a little on the rest early on in the manga to spend enough time on the important pages.

In conclusion, if you like a wide spectrum of unique and interesting well developed characters, a different kind of artwork and a manga that can be funny and tragic with pages difference, read this. If you dont want that, your a nut.

Just read this for the 2nd time, and still love it (possibly love it even more). As a shoujo reader I was wishing for romance, but I suppose romance with Neuro in it would just be plain weird -_- In anycase, I really loved the characters, the sillyness, and the art that I thought was strange at first but eventually grew on me. Definitely a must read smile Only complaint-- there should be a sequel!

I really enjoyed this series - and I wasn't expecting to!

I wasn't crazy about the art at first, but it really grew on me. It has this sort of surrealist vibe that fits the 'demonic' side of the series. The mysteries were here and there, often hard to follow but in the end, interesting. The plot was lighthearted but ended up being quite sweet.

In the end though, I will remember this series for its humor - its really funny and enjoyable!

Just like the title says, my appetite for this series has not been satiated, in other words, I want more.
The manga was just so much fun~.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
And the way the characters developed, was pretty good as well. The characters developed from an arrogant sadistic demon to someone who tries to understand human feelings; and a girl who didn't want to be involved in any of this, to someone who won't cry and won't run away.
[If you can't tell who those two characters are, then you are not a fan. Seriously. .____.]
I felt bad for Godai, though. While him being made fun of, was, well funny. I think Neuro went a little overboard a couple of times.
And while abrupt, the ending was pretty funny too. I'm just a little upset that I never found out the reason behind Akane's "puzzle".
