Talking about manga in general, you’ve probably noticed the following tendency: now many comics are getting longer, going on for several years and have a silly ending. By contrast, Psyren is a finished piece and the author doesn’t ruin the ending. That’s already one of the pros.
I’m happy to present a series of articles that will provide you with interesting facts and relevant opinions on the most popular (and not very popular) titles. I’m going to review famous manga works as well as newly-appeared pieces and also obscure works that could claim to be popular.
Here we go!
To start with, I have to warn you that Gantz is the darkest version of seinen. It’s not intended for children, nursing mothers, over-sensitive and emotional people, and people with unhealthy state of mind. As long as Gantz refers to guro manga, all the stuff is depicted with enjoyment and relish. Obviously, the author does love his work.
The Seven Deadly Sins is a fantasy manga series written and illustrated by Nakaba Suzuki. For the first time it was published in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine in October 2012. Now it comprises 23 volumes and yet promises “to be continued”. I should say that Suzuki handles the theme of knighthood in a masterly manner. Thus, if you used to binge on stories surrounding King Arthur, Camelot, and brave knights saving princesses, this manga will afford you great pleasure.
