Neitzche Gets a Comedy Manga? Nihilism Ho!

Business Jump announced it is launching a new comedy manga series entitled “Tonari no Zarathustra-san” starting May 2nd. The title translates to “My Neighbor Zarathustra”. This new comedy will explore the world of German existential philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche and author of “Thus Spoke Zarathustra”.

So… Yeah. I love that the Japanese accept anime and manga as legitimate entertainment mediums ripe for the exploration of topics beyond what America would publish in cartoons or comic books, but this one really made me do a triple take. I really don’t know what to make of this.

Fortunately, the art department here at Growing Up Otaku does:manga-joke


  1. Ahh. The return of Quality Blogging.

    BTW, if Nietzsche running around yelling "Nihilism Ho!" doesn't get a LOL, well... Then I don't care.

    Nihilism Ho!
