Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service
« on: February 05, 2009, 01:54:08 AM »
I was wondering if anyone was picking that manga which dark horse is releasing? It's written by Eiji Otsuka (mpd-psycho) and art by Housui Yamazaki (mail - also on dark horse). Anyway I thought about asking because I've just read volume 7 and 8 yesterday and in volume 7 there is a clear reference to Berserk where in one of the episodes (they call it delivery) we see this robot with a corpse inside it that goes crazy and finds in a comic book store a sword on a display (the dragon slayer to be precise) and start using it to try and kill everyone in the mall and on the other page there is a random guy who says to his friend:" hey check it out, man. kinda like Guts you know?" Anyway I just wanted to share this little slice of life I had haha. Since I thought it was cool of the authors to make a reference of our favorite manga.

oh and yeah the story of that manga involve 5 students who studied in a Buddhist college and turn out to deliver corpse they find, which their souls are still trapped inside them and can't move on to the next reincarnation, anywhere they want. (for those interested)

If you have read or seen Great teacher Onizuka, It also mentions many manga and anime titles. Good to see berserk making its stamp on other mangakas.

Nice man, thanks. It's a cool homage. I've moved the thread to a more fitting place. :serpico:
