Yukie Sakai is a sprightly young home health aide eager to help her elderly clients. But what seems like a straightforward job quickly turns into a series of increasingly surreal and bizarre adventures that put Yukie's wits to the test! Cartoonist Kago, who is well known for combining a more traditional manga style with hyper realistic illustration technique, an experimental visual storytelling approach, and outrageously sexual and scatological subject matter, has single-handedly created his own genre: 'fashionable paranoia.'

Showing influences from Salvador Dali to Katsuhiro Otomo, the combination of Kago's precise, expressive, and kinetic line work with his wacky storytelling is at turns engrossing and repulsive. Mature fans of unconventional manga will appreciate the surreal spiral of body horror, tragicomedy, and dark humor.

Kago deftly combines realism and absurdity for a manga title that's equal parts joyful, evocative, and jarring.

Dementia 21 is a great way to introduce the world to Kago's brilliant work. If you're looking for amazing manga, look no further.

Dementia 21 revels in bodily irreverence and pushes corporeality to the limits of the imagination. It is a fine introduction to the strange world of Kago.
