About Inuyashiki Manga Volume 1

Inuyashiki Volume 1 features story and art by Hiroya Oku.

Ichiro Inuyashiki is down on his luck. While only 58 years old, his geriatric looks often has him written off as a pathetic old man by the world around him and he's constantly ignored and disrespected by his family, despite all that he's done to support them. On top of everything else, his doctor has revealed that he has cancer and it appears that he has little time left in this world. But just when it seems things couldn't get any worse, a blinding light in the night sky strikes the earth where Ichiro stands.

He later wakes up to find himself unscathed, but he soon starts to notice that there's something... different about himself. However, it turns out that these strange, new changes are just what Ichiro needs to take a new lease on life and now it seems like there's nothing to stop him from being a hero worthy of the respect that he never had before... unless, that is, there was someone else out there with these same "changes"...

Worth reading


I originally read a preview of this manga in a Kodansha compilation for Free Comic Book Day. It was very short and didn't seem too interesting. After seeing the title float around though, I decided to go ahead and buy this and I'm glad I did. Our protagonist is Ichiro Inuyashiki, a kindhearted man who is treated poorly by the family that he loves and discovers that he has cancer. After an apparet extra-terrestrial accident he discovers that he is more than what he once was but now wants to use his new abilities to help others. In a way, it's similar to a superhero story but with a truly human character that you can fully sympathize with due to his misfortune. I highly recommend this and cannot wait to read volume 2!

Grandpa Got Run Over by the Aliens

by -

I am with some bias, having loved the mangaka's previous works (Gantz). But this story is able to stand on its own (with a few jabs at the mangaka's world and past works along the way). An elderly man, unappreciated by his family, learns he has cancer. During a moment of vulnerability, he and a young man are run over by advanced aliens (and quickly restored by said aliens as an "oopsie, our bad"). However, the aliens don't have the appropriate tech to restore the humans completely ... and the humans notice, now equipped with overpowered war technology. Thus begins the old man's journey to intervene and save people, and the young man ... well, that's spoilers! I do recommend this series, especially to those who appreciate realism, surrealism, absurdity, and moral ambiguity.

Note: Kodansha Comics always does a really good job with its softcovers in terms of quality. This book will last a good long while!
