    Genre: Seinen, Supernatural, Horror

    Ch1
    = Chapter 106


    My first impressions:
    Spoiler:
    The main character seems to be a bit despicable, though at the same time relateable to real life standards.
    The art looks like a cross between Parasyte and Ito Junji at times, sufficed to say it's quite good.


    The first chapter was a very nice introduction into the world, the MC, and the general ability of the MC. It has a lot of potential based off the first chapter, could definitely end up being a really high ranked Seinen down the line.

    Jagasaki won't be an amazing hero that everyone will love like typical shounen MCs can already tell. His fake persona is irritating and creepy, but it makes for a good read anyways. So definitely looking forward to seeing what more the bastard can do!


    Anyone else read it, or going to read it. Thoughts on it so far?

    It reminds me of that Japanese movie about a girl with a machine gun instead of her hand. Same sort of crazy.

    Lol chapter 2 referenced Parasyte, I guess he was inspired a bit :hurr

    The chapter was quite good, he had such a nice GF but his shitty personality fucked it up. :catprone
    So far the premise is pretty nice, the more fucked up things get the better for this type of manga.

    This is good for anti-depression.

    EDIT: the way he kills the owl haha a character that is introduced and explain the situation that the main character is in...normally they don't get killed right in the chapter haha

    Ch 3 is out

    Some of the art in the beginning, christ man, :lmao
    I get the feeling his favorite part was fucking her brains out.

    Pretty good info dump chapter, hilarious he has to snort the monster balls like cocaine. :lmao

    Hopefully the quality keeps up, this could be a keeper.

    Guess I was wrong about the owl, still, had he not killed it and had it with him when he got home, chances are that owl would have eaten the frog that turned his waifu. Pretty weird series I must say, eating owl shit keeps him from turning into a monster, what.

    That owl coming back to life reminds me of Kyubey from madoka

    He's got nothing on Yusuke's pretty boy charm tho, lol.
    Yup. He finger banged her brains out, literally. Since it's a seinen and not a shonen they went with some more graphic visuals :distracted

    Found this gem from mangastream. This kind of story has been done before but it is still entertaining.

    I would say it's a blend of Parasyte and Majin Tantei Nogami Neuro. The manga itself mentioned parasyte, impressive :lmao

    The MC is so realistic and relatable that I like it :caticon He isn't that bad of a guy, sure he has all these shitty thoughts but he still did his job as a cop, when other people just choose to ignore the problem in front of them. That's admirable :catsalute

    I didn't expect him to shoot the exposition owl tho :catflip
    I was squeeling on how cute the owl is (it's sooooooo cuuuute) and the MC shoot it, i almost drop the manga!:catstab

    At least the owl looks fine after that. I don't care if the owl has an hidden agenda, I just want to see it being cute every chapter :catadorbs.

    Chapter 4; Dat ass on that cop doe.
    Every time this Jagasaki nigga puts his smile on he looks like a hardcore creep, smh.
    Can't believe the crazy ass put her head in the fridge, lol. That reminds me of that one movie... whatever it's called.

    Chapter 5; The ending was really predictable but still damn, the designs are pretty sick when everything is so normal and then it hits you up with the funky shit.

    Looking forward to next chapter to see her reasoning for getting hit by the frogs. Will it be a case of extreme happiness turned evil or what.

    Chapter 6 felt so short, but kinda cool. Going through the somewhat generic powerup phase but new abilities are nice.
    Pistol form, Cannon form(?) and sniper form seems like, so far. Wonder what else he'll get in the future.

    Always feels so short lol, but yeah the designs are cool. The new guy seems interesting, will he be an ally or a villain, depends on if only the owls support the "good". I guess we shall see pretty soon who he is.
