Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service – Volume 1 by Eiji Otsuka

Kurosagi 1

The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service is a Manga series about a group of students from a Buddhist University who have realised that there is little call for their job skills.

Within the first volume four deliveries are described, there is graphic violence throughout and its art work is simple, yet detailed.

I really enjoyed this book, the story is really interesting and incorporates some Japanese Tradition as well.In the book Dendera Field is mentioned which is a place when the Japanese used to cast off their old people when it was time to die. I checked up on this and it is real, what is also real is the fact that now, rather than being a place to cast off the old, it is simply a tourist attraction. I like books where if you Google a place that’s been mentioned, it’s real! Here is a picture of Dendera Field in Tono, Japan;

If you like japanese style manga books then this has to be a must read. It’s easy to read and entertaining throughout, apart from a few pages which I read before bed, I pretty much completed this book in an hour.

If you’d like to buy the book you can get it here;
