* ShoutOut:
** For starters, Numata makes many shout outs to classic shounen titles as a result of reading too much manga.
** Yata also has a few shout outs to ''Franchise/StarWars'', including a Darth Vader cellphone charm.
--->'''Yata''': ''wielding a lightsaber'' [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack You'll find I'm full of surprises!]]
** The one with the otaku-bot features the [[Manga/{{Berserk}} Dragonslayer]], or at least a fragile plastic replica.
** Later on, that same bot is labeled "03", noted in the Disjecta Membra for that volume as a reference to Unit 03 from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''.
** At one point Numata references, of all things, ComicBook/ChickTracts (specifically the "Here come de judge" line.)

Thus is created the concept of the {{Psychopomp}} For Hire, and so begins a dark, gory, squicky, yet frequently funny exploration of death and dying in Japan, and quite a few horror tropes as well. It's interesting for its episodic style - apart from the characters' back-stories and the arc regarding the origin of Karatsu's powers, each chapter is self-contained. The realistic art style and top-notch translation makes it something definitely worth reading, for those with a strong stomach.
