I often found myself wondering what I was reading and why.
The art is pretty good, but not my choice style. Yet the more realistic touches work for the setting. I may or may not continue this series, but it is far from a priority. Yet if you like gritty slice-of-life mangas with a touch of horror and psychology, then you might like this. Did I love it"? Did I hate it?
See a Problem?
So I'm going to try to break it down. What I liked: The moments when people begin to turn is great. I actually love that they still hold a little of who they are.
Sometimes speaking or repeating words of something they did last before turning. Also the way they move is freaky and scary. Crawling like the grudge I actually waited a day before I reviewed this because I wanted to think about it. Crawling like the grudge ass creatures. I also enjoyed some of the humor. It's so over the top and crazy you can't help but laugh.

There are so many things I love about this book. I enjoy how incredible and beautiful th To call I Am A Hero another zombie story would be a huge disservice to anyone looking for a good horror manga. I enjoy how incredible and beautiful the artwork is, I can imagine the artist putting hours and days into the scenery on every panel.
I love that the characters in this book are average humans, it makes the main lead more understandable and likable. You won't find super powered teenage girls or crazy plots about robots and warlocks in this story.
This is a book about a regular man who lost his way in a normal society where we are measured only by the cash in our pockets. The messages hit close to home and it is hard for the average middle class individual to not sympathize with the male lead.
The dead eventually do pop up in this book but it is not until much later into the story. The majority of the tension is knowing that these creatures will be introduced eventually, but the author brilliantly shows incredible restraint by making the reader wait for that to happen.
Instead we spend some time witnessing our protagonist oblivious to the clues and signs that something bad is bound to happen. When the outbreak happens it is horrifyingly wonderful, I haven't been this wowed since the 28 Days Later films.
This book does have lots of gore, so I would not recommend I Am A Hero for the squeamish or those who don't enjoy horror films. One thing that really impressed me is that all of the usual cliche Japanese goofball humor is missing from the book. We don't get the stereotypes that plague the majority of anime and manga fiction in this book. It was almost like the author saw the same boring patterns and opted to do something entirely new.
Regardless it is a breath of fresh air and I love it. I Am A Hero has me as a fan for life. Even though the series is going to continue for awhile longer, I am very much look forward to the journey and future adaptations of this work. I am thankful for discovering this book after searching for the perfect zombie story for a long time.
I am glad to finally find the masterpiece I secretly wished for.

I understand why Dark Horse would want to publicize it that way, given the popularity of The Walking Dead and other zombie-type horror narratives, but this isn't really the same thing.
At least that's the case in the first half of the omnibus. Where Hanazawa goes in the last half is more like the zombie manga that some have been touting. I have hopes for this title, and I hope it doesn't let me down. Mar 18, Jamie rated it it was ok Shelves: While this manga is not bad, it is just not one I particularly enjoyed. The pace is quite slow. Maybe because I was expecting more of the zombie aspect. Honestly, it is more a psychological story.
Hideo is a freaked out 35 year old that is afraid of just about anything.
He often is found with some boy near him that is either a ghost or a character of his, etc. I never could quite figure out. He has a bit of an odd relationship with this girl yet feels threatened by another mangaka she reads.
Yo While this manga is not bad, it is just not one I particularly enjoyed. You get a couple hints of trouble in the first couple hundred pages, but for any real zombie action, you have to wait until halfway through the book.

And even then it is not much. Hideo doesn't know reality from nightmares half the time.
He is paranoid yet takes zombies in stride. And these zombies are weird, almost still themselves is some ways. And flexible! Seeing a stand on their forearms, feet in the arm, flexed back over their heads, shove in another's mouth. And lots of awkward sexual references and moments.

Crawling like the grudge ass creatures. I also enjoyed some of the humor.
It's so over the top and crazy you can't help but laugh. I also got to say it was a relief to see some real life manga troubles.
Shit is hard work, and any artist can relate. So that was nice. What I didn't like: The pacing is all over the place. I'm all for character building but my God the first half is really slow, over the top, weird, and sometimes boring to read.
The main character is also a total loser, and that always drives me crazy in cliche world of anime. The manga can also be confusing to read and sometimes gotta re-read panels to get it all.
I just didn't care for many of the characters here. So it's a interesting enough read. I probably will pick up volume 2 down the line but for now I'll just place it to the side. It's good enough to recommend to read but I wouldn't say it's a must download or anything. Nov 25, Candice rated it did not like it Shelves: I don't know what people see in this manga. I get that it's nice to have an average joe as the main character, but Hideo is not average.
He is pretty much the biggest loser the manga-ka could have invented. I did not find him sympathetic or likeable, and his oddities were annoying rather than endearing. He's the sort of character that I usually pray will die off quickly so that I don't have to keep reading about him. The humor, if you can call it that, is not actually funny and often perverted. The plot takes forever to get off the ground, and when it does it feels like most standard zombie fare.
I didn't feel like it was particularly unique. I also hated the art. People refer to it as realistic, but I disagree. While manga does tend to have overly-pretty characters, this book takes it to the opposite extreme: Not only is nobody attractive, there's not a single average-looking character.
I take that back; the editors and the extras look reasonably human.
I genuinely did not find a single redeeming quality in this manga, and I'll probably never understand why it gets so much praise. Jul 03, Guillermo Galvan rated it it was ok. Huge pools of boredom between killer zombie action. The main character couldn't hold my attention.
The love interest didn't go anywhere, so why force it in?
This reminded me of a watered down Japanese version of Shawn of the Dead. The zombie scenes themselves, though, are gory enough for real zombie fans to appreciate.
But as I said, the long waits centered on a lame main character were just too much for me.

The main character is basically just an annoying paranoid neckbeard who hallucinates a lot and likes to go on boring rants about manga I don't care?The manga phenomenon in America.

He rallies disenfranchised youths via a message board to "create a new world". But, all in all, I would recommend this manga to anyone who enjoys a great horror story, zombies, or just likes manga in general with a good story.
