Cool enough...

This manga is cool enough. I especially like that the lead guy is half Puerto Rican...Hah now that's different considering that most mixes in manga are Euorpeon/Asian in origin. The art is nice, not the best I've seen, but nice. I like the characters enough even if the story line hasn't just pulled me in as of yet. Over all, if you're looking for something to tide you over till your fav manga's are updated then I'd recommend this.

The artwork drew me in!

Yes, like my subject says, the artwork really caught my attention. I like reading most Seinen and shounen because it provides really good-looking guys in action for me. wink And this one...MAN, two good-looking dudes equalled a few for me! I really like how the bodies are drawn for both men and women in this one and, though I'm not a big fan of TOO much blood, I think the action was totally heating!

Lots of blood, gore, wicked weapons, action filled fighting and good looking guys...now this is entertainment! The Art is great, the fighting is morbid and the plot is coming along nicely, even the characters are likeable. I'm really looking forward to the next chapter

Good seinen

Lots of fighting that at first glance looks almost real real. Realistic world and all characters obey some form of physics laws. I really like the art and the style. Blood, gore and violence - when needed, drama - when needed. Almost nothing out of place.

Great seinen with shounen style. Great art, background and philosophy.

I think it is a bit underrated.

Seinen readers are tired of shounen as the shounen route surfaces, but I think that it is not important. The author had focused on philosophy, interesting social structures/changes, visual arts and martial arts, and that's what the manga trying to show you, for me, it is a 10/10.

Sidenote: It is not relevant to the manga, but the translation from Illuminati-Manga sucks. The translator has some sort of religious background or something. It uses the word "Divine" "Zealous" "Holy" quite often, I don't understand what it means and I don't like these tones, it is unnatural. It destroys my reading experience.

GREAT FEMALE FIGHTERS

If you're tired of women being hostages all the time or only existing for the sole purpose of fanservice, read this! it's such a relief having a badass be such a crucial part of a story for once. another great thing about this is that there is a pretty even amount of female fighters that actually have a role and are strong enough to hold their own. They also get their own screen time and their fighting methods are pretty realistic. This is a very fast paced manga that generally ends each fight in a chapter or a few more, so don't expect too much complexity or strategics. Good for reading a refreshing quick story that has interesting characters and treats them like real people.

Appreciation of the male body.

The subject of this post sounds very naughty, haha. But what I mean to say is that the illustration on this manga is superb. Rough at the right parts and smooth, thick lines in others--very shounen. The abbs are greatly exaggerated though.. To the point of ridiculous sometimes. Quite a male dominant cast.

Lots of "picturesque" scenes...you know, those scene where the illustration and the composition blend perfectly, making the prefect wallpaper. So, basically, cool posing and all that. wink

I sought out this manga because I wanted good fight scene, and this manga fulfill that desire perfectly. Lots of sword fightings.
Though I am sometimes distracted by the art (the abbs) or the gore.
I'm not a squeamish person, so the gore (i.e. body parts cut in half) doesn't bother me as much as it probably should. But I must warn others reading this: be prepare for the blood and gore.

Plot: it's good so far. Typical gang scruffles. I'll update again on this when I finish reading it.

mediocre

Mediocre manga in all aspects. It starts with some potential but you soon come to realize that's all the author can do. He had a nice idea but wasn't able to develop it.

The story is boring though there's a lot of action, you still don't care about it or any of the characters. This manga is listed as seinen but it's simple as a shounen.

The art is ok. It has some strong points but it can't fill the void the story leaves.

Goodness gracious mangakas, why, why, why? The story was built up so great and then, the inevitable happens, the ending came as fast as it could and was terrible. Cliffhanger...really though? I mean, this doesn't look like its getting a sequel so just wrap it up, and I mean WRAP IT UP. I guess lately I have just been reading too many good mangas that ended up with egregious endings.
