Hey everyone, I hope you'll forgive my absence from Suda51 Wiki. I'm still completely interested in the website, but a month ago I moved out of the house and to the other side of the province, so I'm still in a transitional period, trying to set up here.

Compared to previous efforts by Grasshopper Manufacture, No More Heroes probably has the most linear and explainable plot yet. Everything else has been riddled with supernatural undertones, metaphors, and deliberate contradiction, making even the most die-hard Grasshopper enthusiasts unable to absolutely piece together the whole tale.
