"Ten years ago, they took him. He doesn't know who. For ten years he has been confined in a private prison. He doesn't know why. For ten years his only contact with the outside world has been a television set and the voices of his jailers. In time, he lost himself. He changed -- transformed himself into something else-- something hard-- something lethal. Suddenly one day, his incarceration ends, again without explanation. He is sedated, stuffed inside a trunk, and dumped in a park. When he awakes, he is free to reclaim what's left of his life-- and what's left is revenge"--Publisher's website.… (més)

The cover of the book features a small blurb that compares this to Pulp Fiction or Payback. So far, it seems a bit closer to the later film, but we shall see. Our protagonist was locked away in a secret prison for 10 years, then one day, out of the blue, he is drugged, packed in a large trunk, then dumped in some park. He is free. He has no idea why he was imprisoned, but he knows he wants to find out and get his revenge. This is a gritty, pretty well paced read. I think readers in large measure will stick with it because, like our protagonist, we want to find out why he was imprisoned. We get hints of who may have done it, but still, that lingering question remains, the motive. The volume sets up the series pretty well, and it is a series I do plan on following. This is one I do recommend. ( )

Dark, violent, mysterious but with reason Old boy is a story about man exacting revenge. Fight scenes were striking and definitely PG-18 material. a good read with a good amount of visual angst. ( )

Good, but didn't grab me. I think I find our lead character charisma-deficient. ( )

Old Boy is pretty much what I'm looking for in a seinen manga. The story is straighforward: an unnamed man, having been held captive for ten years, is released onto the streets of Tokyo. Not knowing why he was a captive or who arranged his captivity, he starts to put a life together with the aim of the one thing he has left: revenge. There's not much of the 'revenge' component yet, as this first volume is mostly set-up; but this is obviously a slow build story and the revenge will surely be that much sweeter when it arrives.

While I hold out to see if Tsuchiya's story will pay off, I can definitely recommend the art by Minegishi. In layout and pacing it compares favorably to Goseki Ikegami; he is able to use an eleven-panel page to give a simultaneous sense of timelessness and time passing, or break out a two-page spread at the moment of maximum impact. The backgrounds are often detailed to the point of gorgeousness and the figures are expressive without veering into cartoonishness.

If future volumes can hold up the level of quality and move the story forward, Old Boy should make for a worthwhile ride over its eight volumes.

Rating: 3.5 (of 5). ( )
