Description
The main protagonist, the shy Jun Naruse, is a rather average guy who works for a electronic company and loves to draw. He falls in love with Megumi whom he met at a shop selling drawing materials and an intimate relationship develops. A few days later the office gets attacked and when the criminal tries to shoot a little girl he saves her by jumping in front of her.

A month passes until he wakes up again and is told that half his brain got destroyed and he only survived because someone donated half a brain. Everything seems to be fine, he quickly recovers and is happy, however he begins to change... is the donated brain the reason for that? Or is it just a side effect of the medicine?

great artwork and development

the artwork is just outstanding. the jeckyll and hyde looks completely different but the same- just by changing hairstyle and expression we get different feelings from both 'characters'. the plot is top-notch, at first we are lulled by the gentle life of an ordinary meek guy, but when the actions start, it picks up and becoming more and more heartbeat-inducing. a great manga.

    This is a pretty decent manga. The artwork is fantastic, story is amazing. The reason why I gave it such a low rating was because, for the most part, it dragged in a quite a few areas. I continued to read it because the parts that it doesn't drag, it was pretty good.

    One consistent part about this manga that I loved was the fact that Naruse was such a nice and gentle man. And to give him
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
a brain of someone of the exact opposite personality had him assuming that this could be the side effects of the operation, that this angry personality is the eruption of his own anger he's been hiding all his life.


    Decent manga. Decent read. I honestly thought it could've been better. smile

It was suspenseful enough to keep me going and wasn't really boring because the chapters were a good length. The whole thing could have been in his head, but he felt a lot and had so much happen to him after a major life-altering accident. There was so much drama and action that I was at tears at the end! I thought it was really good, but that's just me. Read it for yourself!

This manga had an outstanding start. A nice amount of romance coupled with the changes that occur to the main characters personality.At first it balanced itself but lately things just aren't fitting correctly. Not trying to spoil anything here btw. I'm about to start voulme 4 but everything's a wreck and the plot's dissolving. In short, the story lost the balance it was able to perfectly articulate at the beginning. However, maybe that's what the author was going for. I'll have to see in the final volume.

well i guess we can already answer whose brain it is in ch 26 biggrin

the plot is interesting and quite dark
personality change is the main point of this manga
and to open all of the truth, he must chase all the info, even it's bother him

well this kind of sci-fi manga is not bad to read once a while

Wouldn't it be surprising if it's all in his head

This isn't exactly a new premise but I've only seen it done ridiculously over the top either as a comedy or as B movie horror.

This is definitely a good take on it. The characters are likeable. Certain things are pretty obvious but that adds to the dread of these deer like people that are about to be hit by a freaking BUS.

The manga is takes its time to stew in each situation as its revealed. It's something only manga and books can do(maybe radio plays too but who listens to those anymore). At the same time, It is slow moving and its not fully translated.

Of course, just because some things are obvious doesn't mean I know where the story will go, or how dark it will be. So I'm also looking forward to what will happen.

I wanna see where this goes. The drawings are quite nice and the storyline is pretty cool.
