Description


It's weird enough work, just trying everyday to turn corpses into cash when they're connected to mysterious UFO crashes, modern-day mummies, and stiffs turned to soap. But the secrets of the Kurosagi's crew past continue to haunt them as well, as they meet the exorcist Reiji Akira from Mail, who photograps the familiar spirit haunting Karatsu, and a flashback story takes us to early 20th-century Japan to meet the ancestors (?) of our cast, as they hunt the ripper stalking the streets of Meiji-era Tokyo! And now there's sinister competition in the future for them in the body trade, as they encounter a rival firm, the Shirosagi Corpse Cleaning Service...

This is the second volume in the value-priced Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service Omnibus series from Dark Horse Manga!
