Tokyo Babylon

leave a comment »

I just finished reading Tokyo Babylon volume 6. As far as I can tell, someone was stabbed in the eye and will go blind soon, but they’re a vet and can get a blind dog anyway. The victim’s friend feels unhappy that he didn’t get stabbed, which makes no sense. The attacker only stabbed him because she was in an unstable mental state so it’s okay and she doesn’t go to jail. Also, the attacker’s son got an organ transplant and one or two characters in the book can speak to birds becuase they made a bet with a man under a cherry tree.

It takes some skill to twist such a demented and bizarre story in just one small manga. I’m taking it right out of context becuase I didn’t read any of the other books in the series but at least it’s all artistic and stuff.
