About Velveteen & Mandala Manga

Velveteen & Mandala features story and art by Jiro Matsumoto.

The world is a dystopia. Tokyo, where the youth used to waste their time search for answers, is now barren. For Velveteen and Mandala, a pair of teens who still live along the outskirts of town, Tokyo is a nightmare that can only compare to the nightmare that is slowly trying to take over the metropolis.

These two teens are the last line of defence for a nation in ruins. Armed with a fully operational tank, the pair must fight off the zombie hordes while they catfight each other for food, entertainment, and maybe even the affection and attention of the opposite sex. They have nothing to lose in this world except their humanity, but then again, who are the zombies in this world? Are they the undead, or are these two teens who must live among them even still human?

Pulpy and fun.

I'd love to see more of Jiro Matsumoto's works released in English, but for the time being this is all we have. This is a short, fun read with very slapdash art and action, and a lot of blood and gore. I'd recommend it for any fans of violent action and alternative manga.

A Nihilistic View

by -

When I first saw this series on another site the premise intrigued me. I try not to read reviews to keep the spoilers at bay. This book is not too long, but it is 18+ for a reason. It is dark bleakness and in all honest is the most honest representation of a zombie apocalypse I have ever seen. The characters somewhat nihilistic, yet clinging to hope even through the devastation of the world around them and their respective psyches. Excellent story, but unless Toulouse dark tones and just feeling horrible read it and immerse yourself.
