Dorohedoro

Dorohedoro is a seinen manga by Q Hayashida. Dorohedoro is one of my favorite manga ever. It is full of gore though, so it is not for the faint of heart. It's got beautiful detailed art that captures the gritty, decrepit world of Hole. Despite the horrible things that happen in Dorohedoro, the comedy is delightful and there is often an air of lightheartedness. There's also an anime that is 12 episodes. It only covers a fraction of Dorohedoro, and there will be no season two, because the studio behind it is now working on Chainsaw Man.

Our Dreams at Dusk

Our Dreams at Dusk is a manga about LGBT people renovating buildings. This is a bit of simplification, but I like to say it like that because I imagine renovating buildings with my other gay friends and talking about our lives. Their various identities and emotional wellbeings are explored, and the artwork is beautiful.

Goodnight Punpun

Goodnight Punpun is one of the most miserable pieces of fiction I've read. A harrowing tale of childhood neglect, manipulation, and just the general darkness of the human psyche. The artwork is gorgeous in a strange unsettling way. I think about this manga frequently and the people who have come and gone from my life.
