I had borrowed this book at the same time from the library as the first one, and just like the first one I had skipped through scenes as I was more interested int he death part. But then I did read it and I enjoyed it ore than the first one, the deaths were more interesting and this felt more captivating. Although, I'm not sure if I'll like the whole series as I get bored with police detective mangas as I don't care about investigations and all of that drama.

Les âmes sensibles s'abstenir. Si vous l'empruntez dans une bibliothèque ou dans une médiathèque avec du personnel compétent ou au moins sachant lire, vous vous ferez catalogué/e/s. Pour bien faire passer la pilule qu'est l'emprunt, faites un beau sourire et insistez sans être trop lourd. La bibliothécaire a presque voulu garder l'exemplaire et m'a regarder avec un de ces airs qui "encore un/e taré/e".

The story is starting to develop, with some more glimpses into the main character's past. It's kind of difficult to keep track of all his personalities, and I feel like I need to create myself a cheat sheet to reference while reading.
It's been too long since I've read volume 1 but there's not too much to forget regarding this series. It's comprised of unsettling murders. The premise is simple. While trying to solve a grusome murder, a cop discovers that he has multiple personalities. This begins a horrific game uncovering a conspiracy of more unsettling and graphic murders, suicides, and other macabre events.

This manga has a dual nature. It can be both very uninteresting and engaging to read at times. To me, it's too much s
This was definitely a story.

I can almost tell the characters apart.

The mystery deepens and the gore splatters everywhere in this second volume. I remember reading this during winter break in 2008 alongside volumes 3 and 4 and remember being floored by all of them. This is not some kind of Manga for teens or wannabe otaku(AKA Weeaboos) this is a mature manga that treats the readers as adults and takes them on a ride that lets them wrap their brains around the mystery while covering them with a sense of dread that barely dissipates when the last page is turned.
Muy buena mezcla de detectivesco-terror-suspenso
And now, the story picks up.

The thread and main mystery are truly introduced and expanded on in this volume. We are introduced to an interesting villain, the barcode connection becomes more prominent, and things just make more sense. Here we are introduced to a couple of other personalities hiding within our main character, but they don't feel forced or excessive. This is what I was looking for when I read volume 1 a while back. So glad I continued with the series!

Much better than Vol 1 - though I didn't particularly care for the amount of 'female death' in this collection. It's as if the male cases are glossed over with a mention or morgue photo, but the female deaths are detailed and extend well past two pages. We get it, the Japanese mook you're serialized in loves dead bloody chicks, get on with it! LOL. It does save itself by giving more hints about Amamiya's past, and we meet another personality. Yum.
I hate to say it but this series is mediocre (at least untill now). I think the artwork is lame and the story reminds me of Gacha Gacha. Really, it's also about a person with multiple personalities but Gacha Gacha is more fun plus funservice minus gore. And what's probably the biggest drawback of MPD Psycho that I absolutely don't care about the characters. They all can just die. I don't care.

More killings...

cewek2 SMP banyak yang bunuh diri dan ternyata mereka semua memiliki kesamaan yang hanya disadari oleh Amamiya

While still episodic, but with more back ground being woven in. Not as sensational as the first volume, but certainly more satisfying.
Brian Engelhardt
Inspiration for the outstanding Japanese mini-series MPD Psycho. Sick, twisted and exactly what I was looking for.
Awesome...blood, gore, hot psycho dude..what can be better? MORE HOT PSYCHO DUDES!
