This story literally blew me away. It made me laugh, made me cry, and truly got me attached to the characters. Each person is well developed, and has depth that makes you wish you could see more and more of them.

Even the artwork is satisfactory, especially as you keep on reading. Sure, it's not like standard manga character art, but that's what makes it better.

And while it was out there, in a surreal/sci-fi way, it was still a very interesting, gripping story. Give it a try!

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".

I have just finished the manga and I'm so sad it's finished ;_;. This manga just blew me away. It's funny and sad, but theres a (thank god!) light-hearted feel to this. I really came to like the character Aya, and in a way all characters are lovable, even the criminals, because they can be really funny. And if this is thought to be a shallow manga in any way, it is not. It put all the common points of common storylines and put them on a platter for the readers to see. I highly recommend this for everyone.
I loved Neuro's character! Sadistic characters like him are the best.

The characters are lovable, the plot is great, and the character development is awesome!

The art may irk you at the beginning, but it does get better to an extent. Personally, I didn't really care and thought it was really cool, in my opinion. It's different for the usual styles that I come across most of the time ^_^

Great read and I wish that I could give it a 1000/10 rating XD

I've been reading this series since only chapter one was out and it was by far one of the BEST mangas out there and you should read it because you will NEVER find another manga like this. It takes mystery to a whole new level and the main characters are unique in their own ways. Even if some people might not like the artwork, I personally don't mind it and even think that its a really good art style and not to mention even if you don't like the artwork you would be blown away by the storyline itself.

It's a must read and you definitely won't regret 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.

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.

Slight decline, but still decent

My rating lowered because the entire Sicks arc has devolved the series into a Battle Manga at the moment. Also, there is usually very little evidence shown before Neuro's unveilings, though the manga-ka was getting better at that. Neuro and Yako's relationship is hilarious, as well as Neuro's psychotically huge ego. Better than most manga in Jump at the moment though.
