dandadan vol 1 YUKINOBU TATSU
Momo and the class nerd, who she’s nicknamed as Okarun, fight about what is actually real - monsters or aliens. Okarun sends Momo to a building rumored to have high alien activity, while Momo sends Okarun to a cave rumored to be haunted by demonic ghosts. Both find out the other is right. Momo is assaulted by aliens and they attempt to probe her, while Okarun finds a creepy ghost grandma who is obsessed with eating his penis. The two fight out of their terrible situations but now are being followed by the grandma ghost. Momo brings Okarun to her grandmother’s house where she can protect them with her substantial supernatural power. The three devise a strategy to try to get the ghost grandma off their tails.
This is a pretty wild story with a lot of inappropriate moments that would probably automatically exclude it from my school library. The first major inappropriate joke is within the first twenty pages, but the mangaka doubles down with a ghost obsessed with eating penises who is the main antagonist of this first volume. I can see how this story would be considered humorous, especially as we’re seeing more stories coming out that make sexual punch lines integral to the storyline, like Chainsaw Man. This story is also ridiculous for ridiculous' sake at some moments, like Undead Unluck, so it will appeal to readers of that over-the-top humorous style.
