The Dementia 21 Manga Is Listed With a Print Release From Fantagraphics Books

Amazon is listing a print release of Shintaro Kago’s Dementia 21 manga from Fantagraphics Books. The volume is listed with an August 28, 2018 release date, and is supposed to be 300 pages.

The series is described as:

This is a disturbingly funny manga about a plucky home aide tasked with caring for a series of bizarre patients, from one of Japan’s most twisted cartoonists.

Yukie Sakai is a sprightly young home health aide eager to help her elderly clients. But what seems like a straightforward job quickly turns into a series of increasingly surreal and bizarre adventures that put Yukie’s wits to the test. Cartoonist Kago, who is well known for combining a more traditional manga style with hyper realistic illustration technique, an experimental visual storytelling approach, and outrageously sexual and scatological subject matter, has single-handedly created his own genre: “fashionable paranoia.”

BookLOUD serialized Dementia 21 in English and Japanese in its bilingual ComicLoud digital magazine until the magazine ceased publication in 2013. BookLOUD also released four volumes digitally in both English and Japanese, and a total of seven volumes in Japanese.

As of this writing, there has been no confirmation from Fantagraphics Books as to whether or not this listing is accurate.
