High above Farmless City, citizens are stunned by the sudden appearance of two floating figures. Are they human boys, monolithic robots, or something much more strange? As the battle ensues between them, destruction and devastation falls on the hapless city. One figure is Vice, and seems to be as evil as his name implies. The other is Ultimo, intent on trying to stop Vice from wreaking more havoc. But who are Vice and Ultimo really? Where did they come from? A new mystery begins with the fate of the world possibly hanging in the balance!

i don't care that much that some people don't like the art but i think it's good. also it doesn't just have the generic evil vs good the whole point of it is to try turning the other side to your side it is deeper than evil vs good i actually feel bad for people who can't see how good the series is

lol, Dustan looks just like Stan Lee!! xD
it probably is drawn to look like him b/c he's always somewhere in the movies of hulk, spider man, and the incredible 4 etc.
anyway i really like the story
its like something new with american comic writer's plot in it but some of japanese style mixed in it (not just the art) but its quite enjoyable
pity that only limited number of chapters are out there

Two things first; I am not a fan of Takei nor Lee. I have never been into super hero comics and I think Shaman King is pretty bad, but for some reason this totally blew me away. The first few chapters are not too good, but the story quickly picks its pace and it makes this very enjoyable read. I don't know if it's just me, but I found _lots_ of homosexual undertones in this... Awesome manga nevertheless~

Combine Stan Lee and Hiroyuki Takei minds together and you get a Masterpiece! For Stan Lee's first manga it's really good. Each chapter's ending just makes you want to know what's going to happen next. Anime I think yes just give it more volumes and Boom! Karakuri Douji Ultimo becomes an anime HAHAH

I personally like the manga. From what I have read it shows a lot of promise and may very well be the next heir to the shonen anime/manga throne. Heck maybe when this gets an anime adaption it might be the one that boosts Anime back into popularity again.
For now the manga shows that it might be great but for now I'm just going to kick back and wait for the other chapters to be translated.

The art isn't that great, the story doesn't look promising and seems silly "two natural born enemies".. I also don't like the "third person telling" prospective and cinematic approach to storytelling... it did not feel like it was a manga... after knowing the author, it clicked.

With all respect to the people who voted highly, that is what get by having fanboys who blindly vote cheer for a series just because it is written by their favorite X or Y writer. I feel sorry for you guys.

kind of crappy work put up with to entertain nobrainer. this is a manga but they try to put silly narrative boxes in as many panels as possible. Characters, events, conversations sound random every way it goes. Anyway, so disappointing.

Ultimo was the last manga I ever expect to be done by the creator of Shaman King and Stan Lee himself.

However, this manga is actually great, and in many ways, original, with a good plot and some characters that fits well in this new series.

It'll be a while (at least until March of next year), but hey, if they could make one chapter this awesome, I can't wait for more.

This series looks pretty cool. I cant wait for the next chapters! The art is awesome... but Ultimo looks like a girl x/
I love how Viz already licensed it after a single chapter xD

I cant see myself reading this, and I my opinion the art it self makes up for most of what the manga is worth. I too cant enjoy a manga without it having visual appeal even if the story is an epic master piece.
