well, kinda wondering if anyone else here has read this manga series. Definitely one of the craziest, most immoral, most genius, funniest, and greatest manga ever.

Too bad it ended all too early because of pressures from the manga magazine company and various other sources...

Kaizo has more than its share of crazy and brilliant humor. However... I'm amazed it got as far as it did, with the methods that the author used to create new material. I lost interest after a while, but I can only assume that it got uchikiri-d because he was running out of steam. It would be a good manga to compile a "best of" collection for, assuming one had the drive to actually translate it.

Well, the manga ended not because of the author running out of idea or anything, but because he was told to end it by the magazine. Well, I guess the ending chapters could be said as his retort to those who force him to end it.

Just read the first 6 chapters of vol 1 and I must say that this is one of the most screwed up manga I've ever seen

Is it published in chinese, btw?

I was inferring that his series got canned because he was running out of ideas and thus its popularity/sales was waning. Magazines don't just tell veteran authors they have to stop out of the blue, unless there are extreme circumstances (see Shimaboo).

I understand this was made by the same guy who made Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei and I'd like to know what this series is about.

ellifeedn, it's about a high school kid named Kaizo with a bizarre yet very serious personality, and a few of his classmates who are also fairly unique people. The narrative style is a lot like Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, but it's a more silly than socially relevant.

With this set up, Kaizo (believes he is a cyborg) and his classmates, Umi (will go revealing her dark side with every chapter), Suzu, and Chitan(an inferior being?), will treat in every chapter a different topic of life with the hilarious and interesting way of thinking of the author Kumeta. The attacks of different geniuses/weirdos will create a lot of funny situations.
