Strangely superficial, contrived, sensationalized story about the rather complex topics of alienation, depression, and extremism And yet stuff happens, you know, and somehow I want to know what happens next Go figure 2.5 stars if I could.
It has been a Usamaru Furuya month for me, since I read Lychee Light Club early this month And I liked it a lot but this is really my cup of sake No Longer Human is a classic and great Osamu Dazai novel, and Furuya does a good job in updating the story slightly A story of a wealthy young teenager who had everything but quickly loses it due to feelings of severe alienation Yes, it could be a Who rock opera concept, but in the hands of Dazai its a poetic downsizing of a character slowly losing his [...]
A disturbing trilogy that follows a young man who cannot feel empathy He struggles with connecting to people and forming lasting bonds The main character uses women throughout the story in order to survive Ultimately, things always fall apart because of his inability to feel empathy, accompanied by his own ego Everything revolves around him, instead of the others in his life who are effected by the bad choices he makes He just gives up and moves on when things get hard or uncomfortable It s a fr [...]
MUST READ, manga which is modernly adapted which depicts the story of osamu dazai such a tragic story of a life lived of questioning himself, what does it truly mean to be human Human nature itself is ugly, disgusting, cruel these are one of the aspects this manga adaptation explores A very gripping story that is only 3 volumes, i recommend this very depressing story to others.
I m really not much of a manga reader, but the plot sounded interesting It was ok I guess, but the character despondency and general sociopathology left me not really giving a shit I don t have it in me to appreciate this particular personality type in a character or a person therefore the low rating All around not my kind of book Maybe someone that can relate may enjoy this.
Actual rating 4,5Probably THE darkest, scariest and most depressive manga I ve ever read Superb artwork that hits you like a brass knuckle, especially the ones where he is portrayed with marionette strings Very thought provoking.It definitely stands out from other manga series, even among the dark ones I m curious to read the novel by Osamu Dazu and see if this adaption does it justice.
This is technically the first volume of a manga adaptation of Osamu Dazai s No Longer Human However, in reality it s like a work inspired by Osamu Dazai s No Longer Human It has a lot of the same characters and a lot of the same events, but also enough important changes that the impact of certain familiar scenes and characters is completely different I m not sure how I feel about that.The volume begins with Usamaru Furuya as a character in his own manga He s trying, and failing, to think up an [...]
This is a pretty solid volume about a depressed teen who feels alienated from the world and believes that he needs to play a role in order to fit in hello, younger me I totally related to the main character s feelings of not understanding other people and his whole existential crisis The story is fast paced with some intense moments, and the art does what it needs to do I do feel that everything goes by pretty quickly, I would have liked to delve further into the protagonist s head, as dark a pl [...]
I know that writing likeable characters isn t always a requirement for making good art, but No Longer Human Volume 1 rubbed me the wrong way I felt as detached reading it as Yozo Oba feels about humanity and living, which made it difficult to keep turning pages The art is well done, the story just isn t to my taste Since this is Usamaru Furuya s manga adaption of No Longer Human by Osamu Dozai, it made me wonder how this modernized version 2009 is different from or the same as the 1948 novel.
This is the kind of darkness that I thrive on.
Ri ambientazione in chiave moderna del romanzo omonimo di Dazai Osamu, questo manga in tre volumi a mio parere perde molto del fascino dell originale, per prendere una strada completamente diversa pur rimanendone molto legato.L atmosfera cupa degli ultimi dandy del periodo Showa e le descrizioni pacate e poetiche per quanto autocommiserevoli di ci che c di pi scabroso, per forza o per a spariscono, lasciando spazio a immagini spesso molto o troppo fastidiose, in un macabro e spietato resoconto d [...]
Rispetto al romanzo incentrato sugli inadeguati tentativi di Yozo nel trovare una posizione all interno del tessuto sociale si calca la mano sulla psicopatia del protagonista, sorta di alieno fra gli uomini Il risultato non affatto disprezzabile riesce anzi a calare agilmente all interno del vortice di paura e disistima nei confronti dell umanit , senza sfociare nella misantropia, focalizzando l attenzione sull opprimente assenza di empatia che Yozo incanala in un malessere del tutto personale C [...]
Interesting So character relatability really isn t a requirement for a good novel I was surprised at how engaged I was by this book despite the fact that I couldn t really relate to the protagonist who basically wanders around disengaged from the world while gradually giving up on trying to perform as a functioning person I heard of No Longer Human from Book Girl and the Suicidal Mime and I think it did a much better job of taking the basic concept and crafting an engaging relatable character fr [...]
Before reading the manga, I have actually watch the anime beforehand and I had a brief idea what s the whole story is about.However, I find that reading the manga is much intense compared to the anime.I think this is because of the play of imagination in my head.I tried exploring different possibilities regarding the plot, setting, and characters.I kept asking myself questions like What would have happen if he she didn t do this What if the events happen in other countries and not Japan It is r [...]
It was okay It was a present from a family member who thought it was the original book Instead this is based on that text I read with an open mind but it s quite a basic manga compared to some other stuff I have read Though I can imagine a younger me enjoying this Hinges on a lot of obvious stereotypes which often ruins the other good aspects about it for me The art was okay too.
Tratto dall omonimo romanzo.Primo volume.Angoscia, disperazione, vergogna, schematicit , ripetizioni, sesso, ideologie politiche, annichilimento, suicidio, disagio.Non vedo l ora di avere fra le mani il secondo numero.Prima volta che gli amici japponesi mi incantano e mi fanno addirittura smaniare
This is the first of three volumes and so far so good It s pretty angst ridden, but the central character is messed up interesting enough to hold your interest the way this volume ends makes you want to continue as well Art and presentation is typical of a Vertical Manga release, which means it s superb.
A fantastic example of the darkness and misery depression can cause I m not sure how the rest of the series is going to go but the first volume was superb I am very interested to read the original novel as well as the remaining series of comics.Update 2 years later and still really enjoyed this This time around I ll actually read the whole series.
Not sure how I feel about this one yet I don t think I enjoyed it because I felt so disconnected from the characters It is well written and the art is crisp and clean, and I was never distracted from the story I just don t think that I m the audience for this series.Full review soon at mangamaniaccafe
This is based on a book and now I d like to read the book actually This manga adaptation is great too Quite sad story, but I like these sort of melancholy stories Reminds me a bit about Dorian Gray.
Wow This book is so overwhelmingly sad Gorgeous art work and rich characters, but so sad Definitely for mature audiences, it s a fascinating exploration of a downward spiral and the pain that starts someone on that journey.
Furuya Usamaru is one of my favorite mangaka, and his reimagining of No Longer Human is pretty excellent I love the artistic decisions that went into this, especially the schoolchildren s faces haunting.
Powerfully depressing, but strangely engaging.
Well written illustrated , justt to my tastes.
Updated manga version of Osamu Dazai s essential novel Brilliantly artistic in some places, but emotionally immature throughout.
