Introduce Japanese manga. From childhood, I’ve read a lot, this two masterpiece works. The interesting story is commonplace. Be evaluated only in painting, I like pretty as a work of art. 🙂 But, a few months ago, I was short of money selling. 😦
Parasyte (Kiseijū “Parasitic Beasts”)
is a manga series written and illustrated by Hitoshi Iwaaki,
and published in Kodansha’s Afternoon magazine from 1990 to 1995.
Parasyte centers on an teenaged boy named Shinichi Izumi, who lives with his mother and father in a quiet neighborhood in Tokyo. One night, worm-like aliens called Parasites invade Earth, taking over the brains of human hosts through their ears or noses. One Parasite attempts to crawl into Shinichi’s ear while he sleeps, but is stopped by his headphones; it accidentally burrows into one of his hands instead.
In the Japanese version, it takes over his right hand and is named Migi, after the Japanese word for ‘right’; Tokyopop’s version, in which the images are flipped horizontally, has the Parasite take over Shinichi’s left hand and named Lefty.
Because Migi infected Shinichi’s hand instead of his brain, both beings retain their separate intellect. This gives them an edge in battling the other Parasites, who frequently attack the pair. Initially other Parasites see them as an aberration that needs to be destroyed, but eventually come to see their pairing as a threat. Shinichi also feels compelled to fight other Parasites, who kill and eat humans for food.
Lone Wolf and Cub ( Kozure Ōkami)
is a manga created by writer Kazuo Koike and artist Goseki Kojima. First published in 1970, the story was adapted into six films starring Tomisaburo Wakayama, four plays, a television series starring Yorozuya Kinnosuke, and is widely recognized as an important and influential work.
Lone Wolf and Cub chronicles the story of Ogami Ittō, the Shogun’s executioner who uses a dōtanuki battle sword. Disgraced by false accusations from the Yagyū clan, he is forced to take the path of the assassin. Along with his three-year-old son, Daigorō, they seek revenge on the Yagyū clan and are known as “Lone Wolf and Cub”.
