Description
From Tokyopop:
In the year 2068, the Brain Computer, created by humans to be the core of a machine-driven Earth, itself creates Leave, an android that far surpasses the abilities of humans. With mankind now an unnecessary aspect of the Earth ecosystem, Leave, along with her 'father' Fenrir (the human scientist who raised her), destroys humanity and in its stead creates the four 'Mothers' who in turn create an android race modeled on Leave known as the Selenoid.
They divide the world into four parts, each ruled by a Mother, and then further sub-divide the android population into hierarchical levels with the strong at the top and the weak at the bottom. A virtually perfect society ...
And it would have remained perfect if some of the surviving humans hadn't formed a revolutionary group together with some of the lower caste Selenoid with the explicit purpose of overthrowing Leave and delivering the Earth back into the hands of the humans.

Overall, It was decent. 7/10,5 being average

One problem i faced was the author explanations & information. He did not give it when it was needed.
Second was some scenes just felt out of place.(Close to what I'm trying to say)

Another thing is there should be Romance tag in the Genre section or at least a Romantic Subplot. I saw some love

Some scenes FELT pornographic even though they weren't doing anything at all.

Good Read for those who like "Hero and Heroine saving the world together" type stories.
I liked it.

The background story/scenario is quite good, enough to compare against several long running series, but there were so many bad scene jumps and lack of coherent progression in the characters emotions and personality (acutely for Lemiu and Ash) that I can't help but feel frustrated.

I kept reading till the end simply because, at the my most irritating moments, there were always some glimpses of hope that the author has finally gotten his act together, to my utter disappointment.

The ending was a stab in the back, hoping for something decent but getting a brainf*ck straight out of Leviathan (the most horrible manga I have dared to read from start to end - excluding the PTSD inflicting ones nuked after a few pages - filled with guro and other what not).

Nonetheless, the art was superior (not excellent though), very detailed and quite appreciable. The author would have fared several magnitude better if someone capable enough took charge of the story instead.

Seriously, the credit page of Manga Sketchbook is so hilarious I recommend you download all those vols, read all the credit pages, then delete it. They are worth it.

REALLY!

It tries to do too much, and fails at almost all of it

The main fault of this series is it tries to take itself far too seriously. Its definately an interesting world and concept that it takes place in, but it fails miserably in the execution.

It tries to do too much, and it results in several scenes really feeling out of place and outside of the tone of the manga. It also seems to lack direction, moves too quickly for itself, and comes together rather incohesively. To top it off, several portions of it (especially during the first 2 volumes), successfully become almost pornographic without any real sex happening, and only breasts shown. Even the men take off their shirts for no apparent reason.

Its real saving grace (besides the above average drawing) is the fact that, although rather randomly and out of place, it does develop the history of the world its set in. The chapters in the past, and the sort of culture it builds are some of the best portions of it.

I was really hoping in the end it would all come together. But in the end, after a mess of a build up, it falls into one of the worst cliches it could have, and ends up only disappointing.
