Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service

Welcome to the macabre, supernatural world of the Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service – a team of five Buddhist students who make it their mission to use their skills to free the souls of the deceased. These skills vary from the practical (embalming and hacking) to the spiritual (dowsing, channelling, etc).The cases they encounter are in turns repulsive or sad, and sometimes disturbing, and each case is self-contained – in chapters for volume one, although volume two is dedicated to an entire story arc. The themes are incredibly gloomy, including incest and murder, meaning that this is far from a light read.

The manga series is incredibly bleak and grim – and also fairly gory with some nudity – so will probably appeal best to those of a dark disposition and a strong stomach. There are glint of dark humour along the way too, which stems from the group of oddballs who are forced into working together to find employment in this most ghoulish of fields.

Grim, gritty and dark, this is a series only for those who love gory horror and mystery.
SCORE: 4/5
