MPD-Psycho has earned praise for its complex, shocking story arcs and artist Sho-u Tajima's stark, arresting art style-that draws comparison with artist Charles Burns' work. Adult fans of the Death Note and Paranoia Agent anime series, the Takashi Miike MPD-Psycho television adaptation, and nihilistic parables like the Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service, Monster, and Death Note manga will be surprised by the inventive murders, mysterious sci-fi touches, and surprisingly humorous moments in this smart series. Step onto this crazy ride, as even more strange deviants are introduced and writer Eiji Otsuka continues to astound with his inventive plot twists and atrocities. Named one of Publishers Weekly's best reads of 2007!
* A New York Times bestseller! "Attention to detail makes the horror of this psychological detective series creepier." -Publishers Weekly
“Dead Man’s Galaxy Days” skips back in time to events that take place before MPD-Psycho Volume 1. Yosuke Kobayashi seems like a smart, driven Tokyo police officer, but he’ll soon be transformed into a tragic “multiple personality detective.” The ongoing mystery of the Gakuso gang and their murderous “barcode clones” unravels further, and MPD-Psycho’s strange supporting cast is seen in a totally new light as a serial killer—the Tokyo Mirror Man—terrorizes the city with his chainsaw!
Within an abandoned old building, the popular mobile-phone game Rabbit Doubt-in which players must try to discover the wolf in rabbit's clothing or pay the bloody price-has become a grotesque reality for a group of online friends. As the bones pile up, the survivors begin to question one another, and the seeds of suspicion take root. Who to trust? Who to doubt? With the wolf on the prowl, culling the herd, will any of the unfortunate souls caught up in this twisted game of murder be there to beat witness when the mastermind is finally unmasked?
