By Serdar Yegulalp on /02/09 | 0 Comments. A book like this leaves me divided. Popular Hits of the Showa Era is black comedy of the kind that would have made Terry Southern proud, and is written in a wild, paintball-splatter style where most every sentence has something funny about it.Popular Hits of the Showa Era is a dark comedy and satire; some of the more subtle humor might be lost on readers unfamiliar with Japan, but the ridiculous and outrageous plot certainly makes up for that.

The humor will certainly be difficult for some readers to take--Popular Hits of the Showa Era is not a nice book.
