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?
Ratings & Reviews
Not for the faint hearted.

If you come across this manga and find that it sounds interesting, as I did, then be warned. It is very disturbing and definitely not for kids. I hate spoiling things but it needs to be said. There is a particular scene that stands out more than the rest. It is a rather disgusting scat and rape scene involving a girl and some zombies. If that isn't something you can handle then you might want to look for a different manga.
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.
