Another great manga from the creator of Trigun, soon to be another great anime!

From Dark Horse, publisher of the English version, Blood Blockade Battlefront:

Volume 7, February 2015: A bacteria-sized crime fighter is on the trail of a microscopic terrorist hiding inside Libra agent Leo Watchís pal Real and modifying him. Now any threat puts more and more muscle and bulk on the poor guy, turning him into a titanic monstrosity in short order. Leo has to get his mach monkey, Sonic, to bring the mini cop's weapon inside Real so they can reverse his expansion before one step of his turns Jerusalemís Lot into a parking lot!

Later, Zapp Renfro and Zed O'Brian yell at their own memories of their blood-technique master when a minor errand and major coincidences turn into a fight for their lives in a set-up that would make Rube Goldberg proud.

More info (& links to the anime previews!) at the Dark Horse blog entry, Manga Monday: Blood Blockade Battlefront Vol. 7.

Volume 1: Three years ago, a gateway between Earth and the Beyond opened over the city of New York. In one terrible night, New York was destroyed and rebuilt, trapping New Yorkers and extra-dimensional creatures alike in an unassailable island, a world all its own hidden in the mist of its physics-defying waterfalls.

New York has been rechristened Jerusalemís Lot, a paranormal melting pot where magic and madness dwell alongside the mundane, where every form of human vermin gathers to exploit otherworldly assets for earthly profit. Now someone is threatening to breach the controlled flow of unharmful, average humans and items in and (much more rarely) out of the city and thereby release Jerusalemís Lotís deluge of horrors on The Outside. The mysterious super-agents of Libra fight the impossible to prevent the unthinkable.

Each volume has a subtitle:

Vol. 1 魔界街結社 (Mafuugai Kessha) Makai Town Association
Vol. 2 世界と世界のゲーム (Sekai to Sekai no Game) The World and the World's Game
Vol. 3 震撃の血槌 (Shingeki no Chitsuchi) Blood Hammer of the Earthquake Attack
Vol. 4 拳客のエデン (Kenkaku no Eden) Guest Fist of Eden
Vol. 5 Zの一番長い日 (Z no Ichiban Nagai Hi) Zís Longest Day

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE August 2014 UPDATE: There's going to be an anime! Oh, how I hope they do it justice!

Original comment:

The location! The enemies! The protagonists & ensemble! The subway that announces your chance for returning alive if you take it (only 12% on one subway in the second volume)! The fight with an

other-world (literal, not -ly) mob boss with deity-level powers that takes place in a way you'd NEVER guess but turns out to be even MORE grueling and tortuous than a regular fight!!! Heh. Tortuous. The hallway was tortuous, too.

And the fog. The deeper you go, the less you can see and the less likely you'll make it back alive OR dead, 'cause humans have nummy, nummy corpses!

Protecting the balance of this world is the impossible task that our grumpy group of heroes/fighters/previously innocent previously bystanders have taken on. My favorite quote is from one of the grumpier yet gentlemanly heroes, said while blood drips like sweat from beneath his burned and burning eyes, in the middle of the aforementioned fight with the

mob-boss giant-brained magic-alien: "Even if I am struck by a THOUSAND setbacks, that is NO REASON for me to BEND MY WAYS!"

I've wanted an 11 button for the ratings section once or twice before, but for this one... I dunno... 15? Hundred? Thousand? Yeah, that's about right: 15 hundred thousand and steadily improving.

Due to money stuff I get most of my English-language manga from the library, but this one was so good I bought volume 2 a month before it shipped. I might even get later volumes in Japanese so I can stumble through them sooner.

Get these books. Make your library get them, too.

(Oh, VawX, about your review, the 3rd is not the last chapter. I've read up through chapter 6 plus omakes. Also, someone changed the summary after you commented, so it is now correct. Thanks for pointing it out!)

UPDATE: As of October 2013, I now have paid cash money out of my cashless pocket for unused paper volumes up to volume 4 in English and 5 & 6 in Japanese. I discover new things as I reread them.

But DAYUM, volume 4 has 2 chapters that compete with my previous fave that I mention above from volume 2! Bare-knuckle madness! And then, that car? And that brain? Good job, Dark Horse, BTW.

it seems the summary is all about the oneshot..
well i already read the first 3 chapters,
and the story is different from the oneshot (even the main character is different)
and then i found that this series actually already completed...
the last chapter is the 3rd...

A pretty good shonen manga. It's a little fast-paced, well at least in the beginning, but the action-scenes and drawings are awesome. If you're into mangas from the supernatural genre, you should definitely check this one out!
