In this article I will discuss the manga entitled, “Dandadan.” A manga with a title that may sound strange, and honestly has a strange story, but it is satisfying for me to be able to read, because it provides various things that feel new and difficult for me to guess, resulting in a very satisfying reading experience hehe. Maybe, without further ado, let’s just start the discussion…
Dandadan tells the story of Ken Takakura, an occult fanatic who doesn’t believe in ghosts, and Momo Ayase, a girl who doesn’t believe in aliens. They want to prove to each other that what they believe is real, and unfortunately that leads them to face a lot of things that don’t make sense. Ghosts, Monsters, Aliens, Teen Romance, Battles, to loss of masculinity are all here!!
Dandadan is an interesting and unique manga series for me to read, where this series presents two themes that I find interesting, then combined into a new and unique story concept, so that it can present a variety of story topics that are satisfying to read. When you see this series, to be honest you will feel strange with the title which looks less convincing, but after reading it you will definitely like this series very much.
At the beginning of reading this series, you will be faced with two themes, namely about ghosts and aliens, where these two things are popular, but unfortunately contradict each other because they have very different understandings. However, this series is able to present it into a fun story concept, where both can run on the same plot.
Actually this can happen because this series modifies it by providing several things that make it more reasonable to read, such as providing love stories, drama, and comedy. These two themes are usually used in supernatural series which may be quite serious, so they cannot be combined in the same concept of the story, but if there is already a love story, drama, and comedy, it makes the story lighter, and the concept of the story becomes easier to modify and accept. reader.
From the concept of the story, it also produces an interesting story topic, where this series presents aliens and unique spirits, and the issues raised in it are discussed very well. This series presents one topic in several chapters, so that the discussion is more complex and feels detailed, and ends very perfectly, because what is presented has an interesting message and background story to read, which makes me happy with the various things that are present, but can also feel satisfying at the end.
