Ichi the Killer

Jul 24, 2011

Brutal, disturbing, and funny. Ichi the Killer is a manga that will make you wonder if you should be disgusted or fascinated. The story is brilliant, told from a two-point perspective, and plays out like a detective story. A very, very violent detective story. Now, gore and violence doesn't usually bother me, but this series made me cringe big time. It's not how violent they get, but it's the way they it's committed and shown. Like a papercut, it's worse than a regular wound. The art is decent enough, but the characters are very interesting and unique. Only negative thing I can say is that the ending leaves a lot to be desired. All around, it's a great read, especially if you are the Marquis de Sade.

10/10 story
9/10 art
10/10 characters
10/10 overall
