Actually, it makes me wonder if the author has had traumatic backlash in his own past. The reaction of clinging to rules made irrelevant by events is a symptom of traumatic backlash. However, the way this kind of behavior is portrayed in this manga is extremely realistic, done in a way that we can't actually see "gaps" in the narrative. You do see other mangaka try to implement or show this kind of behavior in their manga, but usually this would be done clumsily and you can tell the the mangaka probably added that in under suggestion from an editor. In I am a Hero, instances of traumatic backlash symptoms are fluid within the narrative. This makes me think the mangaka has had first-had experience of it.

...

I'm a little doubtful that he's had a specific traumatic event. I think he just knows how to make characters realistic and doesn't fold to the media's norms of what a character should be like in a manga. That's why he's my favorite mangaka. if you haven't i recommend reading his other works; this ones actually my least favorite, probably just because how unrealistic the situation is in general.

As an American I find the MC's obsession with gun control laws to be hilarious and think their guns suck.

@Pubulius, hah! The more you know about sssr, hah! The more you know. You get to "know" certain people a bit after reading their posts for a couple years.

 

For example Catbug generally posts something related to Echii, and used to go by the name Cydric.

 

PurpleLibraryGuy generally has a bit of poise, but is (for me) hard to read. Hah!

 

Twilliger is generally an upbeat person, and honestly I can't hate him no matter what he says.

 

And me? I like to play the fool much of the time to relieve stress, because i'm serious irl.

(...)

 

Needless to say, looking back at that experience I often wonder at the complexities of the human mind. Oh, and for some reason, I still finish my veggies and make sure to turn off all the faucets. Given that grandpa passed away in '91, I sure hope I won't see another house on fire for the rest of my life.

 

Amazing. You must be right. Thank you for sharing.

 

Also, your grandpa sounds like an awesome man.

like the girls say, he over-thinks everything, think of it as a character flaw/trait, were he openly thinks that everything well go back to some sort of normal, and so dose not want to brake any laws. It also makes him feel more like a real character, where when he is stupid, it is in a more real kind of way.

 

Actually, it makes me wonder if the author has had traumatic backlash in his own past. The reaction of clinging to rules made irrelevant by events is a symptom of traumatic backlash. All the characters are showing something like this. Oda and Hiromi looking for cash in the pickup truck is one example, as is Hideo's constant law-abiding self-limiting behavior. When someone is under traumatic stress, that person tends to revert to a comfort zone that makes him/her feel protected. Laws and societal norms have always existed to provide that comfort zone to ordinary citizens, so under duress a lot of us raised in rule-of-law societies tend to revert even more strongly to those laws and norms in situations where they've been rendered irrelevant by events, or even made dangerous to follow. However, the way this kind of behavior is portrayed in this manga is extremely realistic, done in a way that we can't actually see "gaps" in the narrative. You do see other mangaka try to implement or show this kind of behavior in their manga, but usually this would be done clumsily and you can tell the the mangaka probably added that in under suggestion from an editor. In I am a Hero, instances of traumatic backlash symptoms are fluid within the narrative. This makes me think the mangaka has had first-had experience of it.

 

I'm saying this from the perspective of someone who've also had this kind of experience. See, I was raised with some household rules like eat your veggies, turn off the lights when you leave the room, put the plates on the kitchen sink, and wash your hands after handling something dirty - oh, and turn off the faucet afterwards. So of course, when at 9 years old my house was on FIRE! when I was having dinner, and I saw the fire spreading in the living room heading towards the dining room, what did I do? Well, first I froze and just stared dumbfounded at the FIRE! Then I quickly finished off FIRE! the veggies, left the dining room FIRE! towards the back FIRE! of the house - plates in hand, turned off FIRE! the lights in the dining room, put the plates on FIRE! the kitchen sink, washed FIRE! my FIRE! hands FIRE! and had to FIRE! turn back FIRE! to FIRE! turn off the FIRE! faucet FIRE! because FIRE! I FIRE! forgot FIRE! the first FIRE! time.

 

Thankfully grandpa (who lived through two world wars and a career smuggling contraband on the wild high seas of post-independence Indonesia) was there to grab his stupid grandson from the goddamned kitchen, throw him into the backyard, then use the garden hose to battle the fire. Well, grandpa certainly knew how to put out fires.

 

Needless to say, looking back at that experience I often wonder at the complexities of the human mind. Oh, and for some reason, I still finish my veggies and make sure to turn off all the faucets. Given that grandpa passed away in '91, I sure hope I won't see another house on fire for the rest of my life.

Please guys, don't talk about the raws here. Make a thread for it.

Shit I shouldn't have checked the raws.

Nope you really should not have!

 

Depression is a way of life in zombie stories!

I read all of it a while ago... and like the new 30 chapters since then, yesterday. All good and fun to read and i really like it. Even the art isn't so bad. Kind of more of a realistic style, but not too much. That's okay.

But sometimes and at certain angles... when they are grinning or whatever...even the good-looking guys and girls look awful. *shudders*

Shit I shouldn't have checked the raws.

Uh-oh, Oda is preggers.

ch179 last page... holy shit...

What are you talking about? It’s just a panorama shot of her leaving.

ch179 last page... holy shit...

 

i think we might have an idea of who is the father..

ch179 last page... holy shit...

It... it didn't have to be like this, Oda...

 

Spoiler

thank you for the chapter.

why the hell does he still mention and think about the freaking sword and firearms law at this state ?

Chapter 168 Page 5 Hiromi Have 3 Arms ??? ∑( ̄A ̄")

No, that's clearly the second branching arm of the creature.

Chapter 168 Page 5 Hiromi Have 3 Arms ??? ∑( ̄A ̄")

There are  a lot of English chapters missing...

They were here before, probably taken down because of copyright infringement bullshit.

best Manga ever !!! 

 

thx guys :)

Do you think that the comments in the manga (literally inside it)  are too sarcastic? any manga i read or anime i watch have the same commentary from the netizens of japan.

Anyone know where I can read in English from chapter 1? There are a few chapters missing here it seems.

Reading this comment field makes me really want to read this.

I gave a look at the raws on dm5 ...
