    Journey To the End of the World by Nishioka Kyoudai



    Journey To the End of the World
    By: Nishioka Brosis
    Genre: Alternative Manga, Psychological
    Serialized In: AX
    Mangaupdates

    A man sets out on a journey to get away from his repetitive and boring life. He finds unbelievable things, terrible things.

    More good timey manga from the Nishioka siblings. Anyone offended by strange art, disturbing situations, cannibalism, and existentialism should not read this manga.

    Once I started reading this manga. It got depressing to read, it has themes that I like to explore but I would not read this in one go. Maybe some time again when I get a feeling to read it, I would not suggest it to those who easily get upset of absurd stuff. It is interesting, but at chapter 2 I believe the monotony thing starts kicking in, but chapter one was amazing.

    The repetitive, futility of life is definitely a major theme. It's like reading Camus or Sartre, not a happy read buy any means, nor something I would recommend to anyone who would be bothered by disturbing imagery. Great stuff for anyone looking for alternative manga, or anything post-modern.

    I have been reading too much modernist and post-modernist literature recently Kafka, Beckett, Baudelaire, I would not handle this manga, the stuff is too deep but the art is really cool, sometimes I want to look at the art and not read it, but I would miss out on the lyrical way that the narrator speaks in this manga, that as a whole makes this manga. Best thing is the art and the symbolism with it but it does get disturbing.

    The Nishioka's art is very cool. Everything looks like demented wood prints. The narration is very poetic, I agree that it makes the manga.

    Sadly it brings forth the sadness of the whole thing as well, still I believe it is a work of art and I do not want to not read the manga because of a few depressing stuff, but with breaks, the art and poetic narration is too much to miss out on.
