A samurai manga about a boy named Zan. Zan's father was a legendary swordsman who used a sword which had no blade (think Sakabatou from Ruroken). Zan's father died one day, and ever since, Zan has wanted to follow in his fathers footsteps.
The manga starts off with Zan being transfered to a new high school in his second year. When pushed, Zan somehow becomes super strong and has incredible sword technique that allows him to beat his enemies.

it was too short
This was good it jus cut to short and rushed, it had potential
cool shounen manga
It's short but the characters are likable and the action scenes are cool. The artwork is a bit odd but it's nice to try something different every now and then. Tsuranuki (the ninja guy) is pretty cool I think. The main guy is a lot like yugi (from yu-gi-oh) with his split personality thing, which the manga never even explains. It does kinda end abruptly though so I suppose it can't be helped.

it is no bad - art is very... ehm prototypic
Bad art. Generic characters. Generic plot. Not hard to figure out why this got cancelled.
Its art is its charm, it tells half the story
Derivative maybe, but it is more Tenj/Tenge than Ru/Ken. What makes this series so much fun is the artwork. The style is pure sweet innocence of youth, naive and unspoiled, and yet the subject matter is kids who go to school everyday with no assurance that they will come home each night in possession of the limbs or the life with which nature endowed them. If you think about what actually HAPPENS in this story, the level of violence is mind boggling, and yet is all drawn in such a such, friendly, amateurish way. Shades of "Battle Royale" the original movie. Japanese schools must be hellish.
I loved this series. It was one of the most original shonen manga I have read in a while. Why did it get cancelled? Why does anyone bother to put anything original in Shonen Jump? Jump rhymes with "Dump" which is what they do with anything creative. "Miero Hito" got tossed in the trash the same way.
Maybe the mangaka should talk to someone from Fantagraphics in the US.
looks like my first try at Anime fan art 8P 9 years ago
Complete trash. No wonder it's dead last in the Jump TOC ratings. I cant believe people waste resources on something like this when you see so many great series still unscanlated in the community.
[edit by mod: Put more than that next time...]
Interesting, looking forward for more. Alternative art, but still good for me. This has potential.
could be better
i like the story..but unfortunately the drawing is a big letdown...well anyway its not the first time i read manga just for the story instead, like angel densetsu.maybe in time the mangaka skill will improve.if you dont mind the artwork then i suggest you give this a shot.
