Impression: This is the story of a young man named Kaizo who suffered a life-changing blow to the head that turned him from a perfectly well adjusted child genius into a cause of chaos and confusion. He becomes incapable of common sense to the point where he believes that he is now a cyborg recreated from his human body after being told so. This was made by the authors of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei and Hayate no Gotoku and the humor they engrave into this work frequently crosses the line into the vulgar and unfunny territory. I was expecting more of SZS’s excellent satirical humor but what I got was a manga that randomly threw eyecancerous jokes about dicks that I can never unsee for the rest of my life. Half of them weren’t even funny - they were just plain poison to the eyes. I am so happy that they really improved since then and that they understood that eyecancer is the last thing you want to see in manga.
