Two lovers have taken a trip out for the day when the young woman loses her ring. But, as the story attempts to break out of its four panel prison, events begin to spiral out of control...
If you ask me the work of Shintaro Kago follows an identical pattern; somewhat stylish yet profoundly revolting artwork combined with surreal plotlines and bland characters.
If you for some reason liked Abstraction, then make sure to check out Fetus Collection (or vice versa). They're both utterly tasteless stories with impossibly crude characters and explicit depictions of love and sex.
Every morning a man wakes up, gets dressed, and heads to work, returning home in the evening to go to sleep. Feeling suffocated by the mundanity and repetitiveness of life, the man takes a detour on his way to work one day. But after being swept up in a tide of piracy, cannibalism, and bizarre religious sects the man starts to wonder: was his boring old life so bad after all?
Journey to the End of the World is longer and more dynamic than Fetus Collection, but both showcase a permeating no holds barred oddness. Do they mean anything? Are they just weird for the sake of being weird? Your mileage may vary (and I hold JttEotW in much higher regard), but a fan of one will probably find something to enjoy in the other.
Fujio and Mitsuo are two would-be wrestlers who spend their days practicing moves near Dark Fuji, a man-made garbage mountain where bodies are buried alongside industrial waste. Unfortunately, years of contamination lead to zombies rising from the pile, and as Tokyo quickly becomes overrun by the horde, Fujio and Mitsuo are separated. As society falls, will the duo ever see each other again?
Tokyo Zombie and Fetus Collection are structured very similarly: both take a gory/taboo subject and run with it, until they end up with as bizarre and irreverent a story as possible. Both feature very strange competitions and oodles of shock value.
