It was weird. Definitely.

The easiest part is to give credits and thanks to Sayo and Stass.
The tricky part comes next: how the heck to present this book?!?

Island is a… special story, halfway between weird and creepy, toying with the male hero’s feelings things aren’t real, depicting his memory issues, throwing industrial hints of double personalities or possession, all of that in an enclosed place where nobody is the person one is pretending to be…

Hey, I spend so much time ranting the mangas have no scenario, I’m not going to complain when, for once, 186 pictures don’t suffice to get the whole grip, right?
Don’t worry, the volume 2 will be translated too!

Graphically, this is some “clean” Tuna Empire (save a dozen weird pages in the end), with happy consensual oral, vaginal and anal sex, plenty hardcore.
All in all, I’m glad I read this manga, I hope it may trigger your interest :o

Update: Island Volume 2 is here. Beware of vaginal tentacular transparent winged squid younger sisters.

Tuna Empire is the creepiest ero-mangaka I know, I can be surprised by his weird stories, not by the fact that he write weird stories.
But he's drawing is organic, with fluid lines. He really can make manga.
Thanks!

That girl with the Eye patch is identical to Ryomou Shimei from Ikkitosen.

Not to mention the Reiquarium reference in the underworld segment.

I still think Spirit of Capitalism is still his best and least weird work.

BTW Oliver, I remember you posting only the cover of a short full color one shot work that you said you might share (don't know if you did) under the collected works section of some artist a long while back. I can't remember the name only that the cover was nothing more than a full color japanese rural roadside or something like that, and the title's in english (travels, portrait, or something >.<)

I remember having it but can't find it on my hard drive because I forgot the artist/title lol… Wonder if you can refresh my memory if you (or anyone) recognize what I'm speaking of. I do know the artist did a bunch of full color works.

ARRRGHH!!! (irritation at knowing of the post but not knowing how to find it)
I (think I) know the post your talking about.
I'm presently sifting through the "just Talking" posts in hopes of eventually coming across it. It was quite a while ago, I believe.

EDIT: After going page by page, I *might* have found it. Would it be this? (it was the first thing that came to mind from your description) http://www.hentairules.net/2010/07/30/non-hentai-

Actually the cover looks quite similar to the one I was actually asking about, but was definitely a full color one shot hentai. Thanks for trying though, hopefully I might run across it again one day… (reminds me of Juan Gotoh in art style BTW)

What? You can't mean ヨコハマ买い出し纪行 by 芦奈野仁,right? It's just …too famous. HOW CAN YOU FORGOT IT!

So if you guys like the halcyon ambience style , just try the <ARIA> by 天野こずえ(Amano Kozue), the stories about the gondolier in Neo Venice on Mars (don't look at me like if you never heard this kind of backgroud setting before – –

Maybe you can't find the English version .Then I think Oliver can solve all the problems for you, right?~(BTW this manga is not exist here till now

After all, I devote the Chinese version here http://www.verycd.com/topics/67994/ and you can use the eDonkey to download it. Wish you guys enjoy it or GOOD LUCK. XD

I'm glad Island is being translated. I'm not a big fan of Tuna Empire stories, nut this one is so wierd it caught my attention. You really dont know what happens : reality, dreams of the male protagonists ? And are the Lovecraftesque creatures real or only projections of the boy and the women's fantasies ?

I was like "What the fuck?" all the way through this volume, but I would be lying if I said it didn't interest me. In face, I can't wait for the next volume.

You should have said "Story: Mindfuck."

Would have saved you some time in typing and in thinking what words to use LOL

copy pasta wtf

anyone knows whats the connection between this and the 2003 ero animation Ho Ta Ru Ko / Crimson Climax http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&a
it has some of the characters (patchwork gilr etc) and the same overall mindfucking setting (cursed island, weird dreams, some crazy cult, masks, rape monsters in some deep cavern)
is this some form of continuation or was it just heavily influenced by the 2003 animation ?

Most probably only heavily influenced.

Wish it wasn't quite so confusing. Weirdness is best when you have some definite reality to contrast it to. Good art and sex, especially later on (I really don't like loli).

Read all the WTF comments. Assumed they were from unjaded teenagers. Read manga. Discovered I was wrong. Very strange, but oddly fascinating.
