We have two choice flavors today from the seldom celebrated, yet readily fascinating Yamamoto Hideo, whose penchant for crime, martial arts, sexual deviations and the human mind takes his works further and deeper into, let’s call it rarely congested territories.
Koroshiya 1 tells the story of an assassin living a life of reenactment of his traumatic past. I’m not kidding when I say this manga is recommended for “Adult Only”, aka well-adjusted person of at least teen-age. Homunculus picks up on the story of a homeless man, though a pseudo-medical procedure, is able to see the warped psyche of the people around him in mind-bending avataral forms, or “homunculus” as they call it. This one gets a “Mature Only” for having many of the same elements as Koroshiya 1, but less physical, more cerebral. Yamamoto lived the homeless life for a time to do research for this project, I hesitate to guess what he did for Koroshiya.
Hawks is wholly responsible for bringing Koroshiya 1 to us, while work on Homunculus has been a collaboration between they & MangaScreener, lasting 8 volumes. Next 4 comes from the unofficial heir to the seinen scanlation crown, Illuminati-Manga. Great job guys.
