A Lollypop or A Bullet4


Satougashi no Dangan wa Uchinukenai: A Lollypop or A Bullet is one of my favorite manga. If you’ve read my previous posts you would know that I’m a huge fan of Psychological manga and this is one of the best short Psychological manga I’ve came across. The manga is quite tragic and pretty sad. The main characters view of the world is what makes this manga so interesting. The art of the manga is amazing. I would love to see a live action adaption of this manga. I believe that everyone should read Satougashi no Dangan wa Uchinukenai: A Lollypop or A Bullet even if they don’t like psychological manga. Its still a must.

Overall Rating: 8/10
