    It was a nice way of blending reality with Mamoru's dream, and who knows, maybe even a clever way of foreshadowing?
    It reminded me a lot of when Bakune's spirit haunted one of the old geezers in volume 3 of Bakune Young.

    Re: Paperakyu by MATSUNAGA Toyokazu

    Maybe not like that, but surely something similar will occur in the whole scheme of things, though I think it would have been too obvious to just solve that problem now, even though Mamoru would have trouble finding someone else to take the "head" or something like that. Still next chapter I suspect we will take off with a scene where Paperakyu is in the music room.

    Matsunaga sure knows how to bend reality and fantasy in the best possible way and still stay a lot closer to reality, so far Paperakyu is closer to reality, surreal but it still is there.

    What I like about Matsunaga is that he is very prone to letting chaos take its course. No matter how this will play out, it won't happen in a conventional way.

    Re: Paperakyu by MATSUNAGA Toyokazu

    I've just read 6 chapters at once, what to say? it's so great!
    To me the art is really good, but the hero has so odd appearance, which may have disheartened many readers at the first glance. And sadly, they mostly turn down and low rank such good manga ><

    Glad you like it! As you say a lot of people get turned off by manga looking like this, but I'm very drawn to these oddball series. Their loss, huh?

    I just hope he does an unexpected ending, though a lot of twists every chapter will sure do the trick for his to pave a path for something no one expects.

    Glad to have a new reader as well, Matsunaga is a genius, more people should read his work.

    It is Crazy! We got our first infected person with the illness! Why Matsunaga are you doing these masterpieces of work each month only?

    Also I suspect that if next chapter the doctors are picking up the kid they will perhaps give in more explanation on the illness, it can be transmitted through urine? I believe they might explain how it all works. Or maybe the pressure from the pop quiz also added to it?

    Re: Paperakyu by MATSUNAGA Toyokazu

    I'm wondering if we'll get to see that Paperakyu holding facility the teacher mentioned a few chapters ago...

    Re: Paperakyu by MATSUNAGA Toyokazu

    Oh indeed, I suppose this was Matsunaga's way of delivering justice on the kid that mocked Paperakyu and stuff, he will face the same troubles and even worst he will see people with a similar illness now, wow how the table turned on the "poor" kid. No sympathy from me .. :/

    Re: Paperakyu by MATSUNAGA Toyokazu

    Woah, I just stumbled upon this and read all 7 chapters available. I love Ryuguden though I'm yet to read Bakune Young. This manga's soo bittersweet. It's kind of depressing me, and to consider that this isn't even serialized! The cliff-hanger got me that I'm dying to read the next chapter.

    And of course, huge thanks to barba (you know you're awesome) for doing this!

    Re: Paperakyu by MATSUNAGA Toyokazu

    Matsunaga gives a different meaning to the word tragicomedy eh? Glad you picked it up raDar, I think you will love all of his work, one of the mangaka I think is very good and consistent with all of his work. Every chapter is a cliffhanger, though some exciting one where the action just stops leaves me wishing for one more page to pop up!

    Hm? So it's not Mamoru but the head bully Kenta. I love the way Matsunaga illustrated the infection scene, I could actually imagine the excruciating pain. I actually liked the whole idea of how a human infected with Paperakyu become like that.

    Re: Paperakyu by MATSUNAGA Toyokazu

    Indeed, his scenes are so surreal, filled with dark humor, like the hands cutting the hair, snip, snip. Nor a cliffhanger chapter it seems, the first one since the start right? Well, I think the fact that Paperakyu will try to win Mamoru over as his best friend, though we kind of expected that. I wonder how the whole school thing will play out with a direct confrontation with all the students and Paperakyu or? And I think we will see those experiments on Kaorou.
