Interesting plot shounen

From just the cover and the description I didn't expect this manga to be as good as it's, while it's a shounen manga the plot is actually more elaborated that typical shounen. Even if the art might look poor, it doesn't lose its value, at least in my opinion. It was really a good find, I'm glad I got to read it.

This is a shounen?

It's too sinister a title for a teenager to read. I'm sure I'd be disturbed if I read that when I was 14. Interesting and engaging. Even though it's flawed, it's a fresh story that doesn't rely on cliche. Thank God there are mangaka that don't instill romance in the story somewhere along the line. Very happy I got to read this.

This is a change from Fukumoto's usual gambling focused affairs and also a change from normal action manga. The art is poor but it's the same art you always get from Fukumoto so it's what you expect. The plot was well paced and had the psychological aspect you should expect from the author while having exciting action aspects cut into it.

Overall it was enjoyable despite its flaws.

Among the author's manga I have read this one was the weakest. That is not to say it was bad - it was ok, it had some intelligent trickery and mind-games (no gambles this time). Maybe it was because I could not accept main lead - a self-made man, both smart and willing to act, yet so laughable naive with his ideals and pity for the weak. I can recommend it to other Fukumoto fans but not to anyone else, there are better ones out there.

A rather good story with interesting characters and a fresh pacing. However the drawings are quite poor and somewhat reduce enjoyment. It may not be a great manga, but its a decent read and at times enjoyable enough.
