Masturbation Master Kurosawa. Sounds like a really bad title for some bad porn or weird gag manga.

What I thought too at first from the title. But inside, its a really engaging drama about the struggles of the weak, making mistakes, overcoming your guilt and moving towards redemption.

A doujin title, so we probably won't find it for sale or see it get localized or anything. But well sources are available to those who search for them. Being four volumes long only, along with a short story that occurs two years after it won't take too much of your time.

===

Kurosawa is an introverted boy in middle school, generally staying away from people and communicating just enough to get around in life. Nothing outstanding.

Except for his strange hobby. Everyday after school, he'll sneak into the mostly unused girl's toilet on the third floor and masturbate. But one day he runs into a girl on his way out. Managing to dodge the issue saying he was replacing cleaning tools, he takes note of that girl, recognizing her as being similar to him. Introverted, unable to get around. And he discovers that she is getting bullied.

It all started with the idea of exacting a form of twisted justice that eventually turns into blackmail and revenge...

===

Despite what it sounds like, it is largely safe for work. For most part. Some parts get raunchy, but nothing is actually shown. The premise sounds ridiculous but the characters are excellently crafted and the story moves on without wasting a frame. When the characters fall, oh they do fall hard.

While initially there are quite a lot of Death Note jokes, whole facial expressions taken from it which may lead you to think it is a weird parody, it definitely isn't. In a sense its sorta similar to Welcome to the NHK. Dealing with themes like social isolationism. The struggles of the 'weak', the 'minority' and 'helpless'. Dealing with hopelessness the only way you can. A fight I can relate to all too well, although I haven't had things turned as bad as in these works, I do find myself thinking sometimes that the possibility existed along the way.

4 volumes and 10,000 words self published work. Accomplishes a hell lot more than most professional mangas out there. Would totally keep a copy on my shelf if there were English copies to get.

You seem to be very interested in Hikikomori and Denpa topics lately. How come?

Have I?

Sure I'm watching Anohana and Denpa...

Well its more like I enjoy a more serious and darker character driven drama and you don't really find them where people with psychological issues aren't involved. Its either the characters have pretty mental issues or its light hearted fluff.
