    Another incredible manga thatno body is reading. Marvellous in every aspect. Some might recall that si ts done by the same mangaka "Hideo Yamamotoas" who did the infamous " Koroshiya Ichi" the bloodiest and most disturbing manga ever to hit bookshelves. (which i so strongly recoomend checking out, but bewarned, you will feel sick, EXTREMLY sick after reading it)

    Basically, "Homunculus" is a story dealing with Trepanation, a procedure of drilling a hole in the skull. It is said to increase the blood circulation and improve pressure inside the skull. It is also said to bring out a person's sixth sense, the ability to use ESP, see ghosts, move objects with one's mind. This is speculative fiction based on the concept of trepanation.

    This manga is engimatic to say the least, The story entagles you so quickly, to be frank when i first read it was done by Yamamotoas, i expected another gangtser manga, but i was gladly wrong. This is a manga that reall dwells inside the human mind, A great piece of literature actually.

    Yuo can grab this masterpiece at

    Synopsis and Download Here

    On another note, get EVERYTHING scanlated by [Blocked Domain], they simply provide the best manga's around, one of (if not the) best groups out there.

    HERE ARE THE FIRST 5 VOLUMES

    Vol 1

    Vol 2

    Vol 3

    Vol 4

    Vol 5

    whoa... i saw homunculus and thought fma XD, PS: as far as i know homunculus has nothin to do with drilling holes o.o, a homunculus is a middle ages myth. it says that alchemists made 12 inch tall little humans called homunculus, but ok

    this is a great manga, finished vol 4 a few days ago. it would be nice if it came out faster i wanna see what happens with the robot arm, he might turn into a gundam or something

    also isnt this a joint between manga screener and band of the hawks, cause i got it from the hawks website

    well thats how manga is, they can never release it fast enough, even if they did a chapter a day it still would not be fast enough for the manga fans

    But what a weird concept, the idea behind the manga is just so original

    Haha, I was sure someone would ask that cquestion seeing that the manga ka is the creator of Ichi the murderer. Dont worry, this mangs doesnt have (yet) any violence as its predecessor Ichi did. I really cant pinpoint what genre it is speciffically. Its more of a of mental/pyshcological manga than you would expect. Very interesting concept( an unusual one for that matter). I suggest just reading it. Its really worth while. And seeing your a fellow fan of 20th CB, you will most definiatly enjoy this.

    Well I just read the first volume. Very interesting to say the least...
    Spoiler:
    Especially when he started seeing those things. Seems like he sees what a person is thinking? Who they are or what made them who they are? But he was able to do those things with his left side before so I guess that ... 'odd' dude's procedure enhanced it I guess.

    Spoiler:
    Indeed, his abilities were always present from the beginning, yet have been simply improved and sharpened by the operation ( I cant wait till we delve in his past. The dude who made the operation (cant recal his name) seems to have known about him for quite sometime.


    I'e only read till volume three, but it gets more intruiging with every passing moment.

    If you would like to read a similair manga (pyschological thriller that is) I recommend MPD Psycho its quite violent and contains sexual content (though not as close to how disturbing Ichi Is)

    indeed, having a series as great as this animated will be such a great treat. I would love to watch it on the silver screen.

    OK so I read all 5 volumes and I loved every 5 of them..

    Allthough volume 5 is getting a little more sickening than the others..

    Spoiler:
    I just want to know what's up with his left arm.. Did he unconsinously take it from the mecha boss or what? also is he becomming somekind of robot ?
    Cause he did all kinds of these complicated math. things



    anyway the Art.work is amazing, truelly is.. also I like how he plays with perspective and how much detail is shown in the manga..

    i think that the robot arm is a part of him being a homonculus himself.. a homonculus that copies whatever he encounters..

    So after 10 years " If he survives? " he might be this guy with seriously emotional problems..

    cover the left eye and add a mirror and he'll lose it :)

    naw it isn't that kind of manga..

    Come to think about it when is the next volume planned ? Summer '05 ?
    Maybe he'll go and look for our Daddy's Boy and see what's wrong with his mind..


    I have high expectations for this manga, hopefully the artist can live up to them ;)
