YMMV / Fourteen

  • BLAM: The alien invasion.
  • Creator Breakdown: Rumor has it that Umezu went off the deep end writing this manga.
  • Faux Symbolism: The group of alien spacecraft is shaped like a crucifix. You can even make out a shape that appears to be Jesus on it.
  • Narm: If this manga's not your thing, (and, let's face it, even if it is,) it'll come across as very silly.
  • Narm Charm: Sure, this manga might be silly, but the way every strange character and plot development is played completely seriously gives it an air of unreality that's actually a bit creepy and unnerving. No matter how narmy you find it, you will be frightened at least once.
  • Science Marches On: Chicken George is terrified to discover that humans evolved from Tyrannosaurus rex, because it's the most violent of the dinosaurs. Other than everything else wrong with that statement, it has since been found that chickens are the closest living relative to the T. rex. Isn't it ironic?
  • So Bad, It's Good: This is generally how it's regarded in the western world. On the other hand, the Japanese tend to like it unironically.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: This is probably the stuff bad trips are made of, dialed Up to Eleven.
