Great episodic chapters with amazing plot

(Before you ask, this is meant as a NON-SPOILER post for those who are not sure if they want to read or not & to see my opinion and recommendations)

The man of 1000 guns... Interesting, eh? Yep... extremely interesting. In fact, this is one of the few mangas that managed to do EVERYTHING perfect.

Junichirou Sengawa, also known as The man of 1000 guns is an accountant by day and revenger by night. The plot was established and concluded perfectly. In the first 20 chapters, we get this episodic feel while getting a few hints of Sengawa's past. Sadly, this is also in my opinion, the weakest point of the manga. I mean, sure, the episodic chapters let us understand the scenarios that he faces everyday. In fact, I felt so attached to each story that my night went on like this with a friend:

[1/14/2015 10:17:11 PM] IAreZach (---): UGH
[1/14/2015 10:17:15 PM] IAreZach (---): like...
[1/14/2015 10:17:16 PM] IAreZach (---): ugh..
[1/14/2015 10:17:21 PM] IAreZach (---): >.> i cri everytiem

But that's beside the point. Reflecting back on it, I really wanted a full-story arc to appear. I spent all my time reading for one, and I guess I was rewarded with one. It still doesn't mean that it shouldn't have come earlier. We should have gotten some hints about the story somewhere in the start, not halfway through the story. Nevertheless, it's my opinion on why I can't give it a 10. Moving on, the last 30 chapters did everything perfect. The fights he went through daily were finally tying up into a story, everything was set in place, and then BAM! We get a great conclusion. Man, I felt so happy too, since for once a story did a more than satisfying job in the end.

So to conclude things,
+Episodic episodes give us a good view on the main character's job.
+You feel attached to each person and their scenarios, even if it was only for 1 chapter
+Great conclusion to a great plot near the end

-Episodic chapters can also be a downfall to some, as sometimes you wish for the plot establish itself sooner

For recommendations, go look at Tiji-kun. They both share similar stories with a person acting in a facade, with a little less violence than this one.

I liked that each chapter had a different bad guy to dispose of. So it sorta went downhill for me when the big bad came into the picture.

The art changed at some point and I felt that it wasn't as good as before.

I would have also liked to see more chapters. To see life return to normal after all the damage.

If you're looking for plot and character development, this is not the manga for you. If you're looking for kick-assery and explosions, you've come to the right place. It's more or less an action movie in manga form, and it's very well executed. The art is very interesting, and it's oddly compelling despite being fairly shallow. It definitely helps that the scans and translating is very high quality. (An aside: the main guy could totally get it.)

excellently OP of an MC!

well, you know the same old same old kid with low strength and then train and then beat up stronger guys? there are non of that and we are presented with an OP character from the get go, just leaving us to savour kill after countless kills. dont expect any compelling character development or plot progression, this manga is for us who want to live in a world where everything can be solved with guns and violence and trust the person wielding the gun is in our side.

read this, and you will be entertained.

This is a story where the character doesn't develope because he's reached the place where he is satisfied. Wonderful story, it's like the author skipped the whole-tough journey, lots of learning, changing oneself and learning the truths of the world and reacting to that-part and got to the part where he just. Lived.

Good but flat

Chapters are mostly rinse and repeat. Main character witnesses some crime, takes up the job, and kills the bad guys. There's little explanation as to why he kills and whether or not he feels any remorse for killing people. After 5 volumes, they could kill off any of the main characters, and there wouldn't be much emotional impact because of the lack of character development.

The being said, the main character is a kickass, charismatic vigilante that you wouldn't mind spending time to read about.

Dark, that's the feeling this manga gives.

It's your typical Assassin-punish-bad-guys manga. A lot of blood and some gore going around, so it's DEFINITELY not recommended for young kids. With that warning out of the way, let's talk more about the storyplot.

In the beginning each chapter is a wrap up for each story and ends in a similar pattern. Later on, it starts to connect to a real story, but very slowly. You can think of Detective Conan in a way.

Art fits the storyline. A mature storyline with a mature artwork, that's the feeling I got from it.

Character development? Ehh...I think it's getting there, but VERY slowly. I feel the author is taking his time to get there. The story is more emphasizes on action and the Sengawa looking cool with his finishing move, like he's the shining light at the end of the tunnel.

I'll give the author more time, seeing how slowly it's building up. Overall, I'll give it a 9, because I feel a lot of potential that is slowly building up.

It took me a long time to warm up to this one but I am beginning to enjoy it. Though it should be coming up on the ending very soon. There was a lot of random chapters in the beginning, but now its all seeming to tie together well. I look forward to seeing the conclusion

Good setting, lacks character development   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

The overall setting and feel to the story are pretty interesting, but like people have said before me, it could use a little more depth. The main character could use a little more personality or uniqueness, maybe just a little room for character development. I feel like the cases could go on a bit longer and be more developed, they're kind of rushed.


I still think it's a worthwhile read, and it's starting to look like the overall plot might be revealed soon.


EDIT: so I finally finished the series (after how many years?). My final comments can be summed up in two qualitative adjectives modified and improperly quantified by two indefinite adjectives:

much blah
many trite
