About The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service Manga Omnibus Volume 1
The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service Omnibus 1 collects volumes 1-3 and features story by Eiji Otsuka and art by Housui Yamazaki.
Five students at a Buddhist college in Japan realize the job market is tough these days... among the living, that is! But their unique spiritual and scientific talents might help them get work from the dead, for they can contact the spirits of corpses and speak with them. And if a body is found hanging from a tree or lying in an alley, it's probably got a story to tell!
The five form The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service, specializing in carrying out the last wishes of their dead clients, so their souls can move on. But the Kurosagi gang are magnets for weirdness - not just corpses - and every case gets them involved in disturbing personal obsessions, bizarre modern Tokyo fads, and strange rituals of old Japan... and often all at once!

Take a Chance on it
A manga that I decided to take a chance on, this delivered. I wasn't a fan of Junji Ito's Uzumaki, but like most other anime/manga with the horror tag. Generally feeling more like a detective story with supernatural elements to make things interesting, it's in the vein of Mononoke, Mushishi, and the more plot-based elements of the Monogatari franchise. Infused with dark humor, it's definitely a fun read.
I don't like this kind of fat & short omnibus at all, but the type of paper it's bound with and the spine illustration make it work better for this series than the others I've seen in this style.
