MPD-Psycho, the most-requested manga series in recently memory, has
found a
fitting home at Dark Horse Manga, where it will be presented uncut and
uncensored in all of its controversial and unflinchingly grotesque
glory! If
Takashi Miike's MPD-Psycho television series still has you confused and
reeling, the original manga series that inspired the show is sure to
take
you on a longer, darker journey into madness. Enjoy the MPD-Psycho
series
for all of its absurd twists, sci-fi touches, and inventive torture
scenes,
but you'll also be mesmerized by the plethora of odd conspiracies and
case
files found in Otsuka and Tajima's uncontrollable, urban horrorshow.

In MPD-Psycho Volume One, police detective Kobayashi Yousuke's life is
changed forever after a serial killer notices something "special" about
him.
That same killer mutilates Kobayashi's wife and kick-starts a "multiple
personality battle" within Kobayashi that pushes him into a complex
tempest
of interconnected deviants and evil forces. Earning praise for its
consistently shocking plotlines and Tajima's clean, arresting art
style,
MPD-Psycho is the manga event of the decade!

o MPD-Psycho was rated the eighth most wanted Japanese series in U.S.
fan
polls!

o Originally licensed by another U.S. publisher, MPD-Psycho was deemed
too
shocking for them to release. But Dark Horse is always prepared to give
manga readers what they want!

o MPD-Psycho has sold more than four million copies in Japan!

o Each volume comes shrink-wrapped and carries an 18+ content advisory.
