Shintaro Kago's Dementia 21 Manga Listed With Print Release From Fantagraphics
posted on by Bayleigh Baker
The Amazon listing describes the manga:
This is a disturbingly funny manga about plucky home aide tasked with caring for a series of bizarre patients, from one of Japan's most twisted cartoonists.
Yukie Sakai is a sprightly young home health aide eager to help her elderly clients. But what seems like a straightforward job quickly turns into a series of increasingly surreal and bizarre adventures that put Yukie's wits to the test! Cartoonist Kago, who is well known for combining a more traditional manga style with hyper realistic illustration technique, an experimental visual storytelling approach, and outrageously sexual and scatological subject matter, has single-handedly created his own genre: “fashionable paranoia."
BookLOUD serialized the manga in English and Japanese in its bilingual ComicLoud digital magazine until the magazine ceased publication in 2013. BookLOUD also released four volumes digitally in both English and Japanese, and a total of seven volumes in Japanese.
Fantagraphics didn't return ANN's request for confirmation of the Amazon listing by press time.
Update: Added info on release of Super Dimensional Love Gun manga. Thanks, littlegreenwolf.
