Its really a psychological novel from what I remember. Its by the same author as Monster, so its something intense along those lines. Its extremely dark at some points. Yes some violence, but relatively mild (by my standards, and I am not fazed by Gantz). Either way, its more adult material, and hope younger people wouldn't read it^^. Its an extremely good read.

You made this interesting by saying this peti ^
gonna read it i guess

Go for it. It 6,300 pages long. Took me a few days, but you might have your work cut out for you. Its not romance or anything like that, so it might not pique your interest.

I actually find the drawings to be nice in some way realistic
The story was awesome,you really can read it really fast it gets you hooked.
Only remark I have it reaches the plateau in 1 point and than after that it drags on a bit.
Spoiler
When the new friend appears after that it just seemed weak to me

Yea don't forget to read 21th century boys,its not a sequel its just the ending of the manga dunno why they split it up
