By Hitoshi Iwaaki

HILARIOUS, and pretty disgusting. It starts with some fluffy, dandelion looking spores drifting into a town one night. Once they hit the ground, they open up and the little parasytes scamper into the night in search of a host. They slither into your ear and take over your brain, giving them complete control. Except for one poor little parasyte. Our main character, Shinichi, is sleeping with headphones on. With a couple of comical, failed finally ends up getting into his hand. Shinichi is more resourceful than the parasyte anticipated, which leaves it fully matured in his arm. The interaction between the parasyte and Shinichi is really silly (I laughed out loud on several occasions), and the gore of the other parasytes is superb. Only two volumes so far, can't wait to read more.
