If you could find out a little something about the future, what would you do? Get rich off of the stock market? Use the media to become famous as a prophet? Or…
I really liked this manga. Very intruiging short read. Reminds me of the anime Death Parade and the manga Pet Shop of Horrors. I wish it was longer I feel like it is such an intresting concept exploring how people react to different unlikely situations. The horror is human nature often making the wrong often evil choices for their own gain. Greed is often the motive. My favorite story was the 3rd one and I wish all of the stories were like that one.
This got me interested because of the style and the bloody supernatural elements. It came out as an absolute mess. The stories have really interesting elements and implications, but all the good premises are ruined by the main character. He claims he doesn't get involved in the situations he's observing, but he's costantly involved, enjoying the ride. Not being emotionally invested doesn't make him a detached observer. He feels like an annoyance more than anything, exactly because he gets everytime in the way instead of just doing what he claims to do. He says he enjoys collecting stories, so why is he always a part of them? Because he's some kind of a psycho, playing not only with bad people, but just anyone he (or the apathetic girl "working" with him) can put under pressure. Observing people doing bad and good choices and collect those stories to have a big picture of humanity, is one thing. Pushing people into making those choices just to have a story to collect (while also claiming your not involvement) is psychotic. Don't waste your time here.
