Descripción del producto
"Velveteen & Mandala feels wrong in the best sense of the word. It's a creepy, gross little monster of a book, the type that is going to crawl inside your brain and throw up on your frontal lobes... The strongest scenes come from the extreme cruelty that lurks behind high school life or the way that people--and I mean regular people here, like you and me--are casually insensitive to each other in deeply cutting ways... The exact manga you need if you're a fan of Johnny Ryan's Prison Pit, Charles Burns's Black Hole, or seeing some good old-fashioned gross action." --Comics Alliance"Velveteen & Mandala is as disturbed as its protagonists, and maybe that's because it manages to be both fun and sad... Just like the way Mandala obsessively shouts 'Tape recorder!' at the top of her lungs, Velveteen & Mandala will stay in your head and beg to be reread. Here's hoping Vertical, or an equally gutsy publisher, pumps out more material like Matsumoto's in the direction of an otherwise unsuspecting North American audience." --Otaku USA "It is funny, but in the black, ghastly way that something like Catch-22 or M*A*S*H (the original film, at its most embittered) was funny: you laugh, along with the storyteller, that you may not cry... The most significant development over the course of V&M is how it slowly trades the outré, non-sequitur black humor of its opening chapters for something a lot sadder and more expansive. There's a surprising amount of emotional punch in the conclusion, enough that it invites a second reading of the book..." --Genji Press "The key in appreciating this genius manga would be to just look deeper. The manga gives focus on how harsh life can be that people would be forced to sacrifice what they have. While this manga isn't recommended for teens, as it contains a lot of disturbing content, it definitely should be read." - Review Stream
Reseña del editor
The world of Velveteen & Mandara is a dystopia. Tokyo where the youth used to waste their time search for answers, is now barren. For a pair of teens who still live along the outskirts of town, Velveteen and Mandala, Tokyo is a nightmare that can only compare to the nightmare that is slowly tring to take over the metropolis.
These two teens are the last line of defence for a nation in ruins. Armed with a fully-operational tank the pair must fight off the zombie hordes while they catfight each other for food, entertainment and maybe even the affection and attention of the opposite sex. They have nothing to lose in this world except their humanity, but then again who are the zombies in this world? Are they the undead or are these two teens who must live among them even still human?

Velveteen, the protagonist, lives by the riverside and from the get-go it's unclear if she's alive or dead and if the world that we see through her eyes even exists. She and her frenemy Mandala trek through a microcosm of spirits, the undead, vicious high school girls, and air raids.
I'm not particularly drawn to stories with violence and nudity (which Velveteen and Mandala has in spades), but have a weak spot for things that are unique. Velveteen and Mandala are not the typical moe school girls that pop up again and again in manga. They are apathetic, strong willed, cruel, addicted to drugs, and literally insane. I like that the writer didn't pull punches. He created two twisted heroines who live in the underbelly of Wonderland.
Velveteen and Mandala are two high school girls in a surreal post-apocalyptic Tokyo where B-52 bombers drop zombies, imps stalk the ruins and everyone, including our heroines, is insane.
It's not a book for kids, there is nudity, sex, rape, scatology and violence. There are some disturbing images and ideas.
It's very well done but I'm not quite sure the surreality and horror added up to a point.
Very well done art. Interesting story.
NOT FOR CHILDREN
