I haven't had any luck in reading it yet since I can't find it in stores anywhere

Sounds right up my alley, though

Like the review says, very solid manga. I'll admit that I don't really get why bloggers seems to be falling in love with it and its companion Kurosaki left and right, but then again horror stories usually don't do much for me. A big part of the appeal is how the stories are told rather than the fairly generic plots, and the guy's style is really fascinating.

Short story horror manga? Check. Positive comments from both Carlo and Kagemusha? Check. Me being the manga dunce that I am, it's hard for me to find new titles to add to my tiny collection, but this sounds great. And it's horror!! My favorite. It'll go well with the Hino, Ito and Umezu.

I've been reading "the companion" Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service lately (just finished volume three yesterday) and I've been totally loving it - so I'm very tempted to pick this up next. Weird thing is, I don't even like horror - but I love the strange characters in Kurosagi and the very black humour they have.

Is this one funny at all or is it meant to be taken seriously?
