Lychee Light Club (The Lychee Light Club) by Usamaru Furuya (Vertical 26 April 2011 / $16.95) - Product Description: The Lychee Light Club is considered Usamaru Furuya's breakthrough work. Originally designed as an experimental project Lychee's themes of youthful rebellion and deus ex machina destruction, and attractive designs eventually won over a new generation of readers and critics, leading the way for Furuya to take on his many recent high profile properties.

In an abandoned warehouse, a band of nine students have assembled to plot out a new future. Their "leader" Zera is determined to cleanse his community of the ugly and cowardly. Having taken command of a band of young men to build him a god-like machine capable of changing the world.  This machine, named "Lychee," will give them what they've been searching for...a beauty of the finest quality.

A surreal yet touching horror comedy Furuya's Lychee Light Club that mixes elements of French Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol and with modern day pop culture tropes and is set in modern day Tokyo. Shocking, sexy and innovative, the Lychee Light Club is at the pinnacle of modern day Japanese seinen manga (young adult comics). (Source: Vertical)
