I have mixed feelings towards this manga... it had an awesome premise and seemed like it was going places, but after awhile it just took an abrupt nose dive. I mean that ending was just... no. Don't get me wrong, I would still recommend it to someone, just don't expect it to be an in depth story line. I'm only giving it such a high rating because I'm a sucker for Boichi's art.

Great art...BUT

The art is good, but everything else is mediocre at best. The scenes within this manga make you gasp because of how detailed and well drawn they are. On the other hand, the characters are tired tropes with limited characteristics. They don't seem to react as normal people would. As a result, you feel detached from the story. Speaking of the story...It makes fuck all sense. The ending totally blows. Additionally, the religious themes that are forced on you throughout the story are so over powering that it might make you throw up. With that said, the story is rather unique and intriguing to read even if it doesn't really make sense.

...but I don't think most manga fans will.

Boichi is the best manga artist I've ever experienced. The amount of work he's lavished on every panel, and the beauty and handsomeness of the characters he's drawn, are breathtaking! But I dislike action manga, and I don't like religion, so I just can't work up the patience to read this. So disappointing!

On the other hand, this manga is a natural for action fans, and ditto for all people who like highly imaginative manga with smart, impressive, world-spanning stories. I recommend that all manga readers give it a try. I'm giving it the rating I think most of you will.

Oh how I wish he'd do another warm, sweet little story like "I Want to Feed Yumin"!

I as well read the first 10 chapters in one go and I must say I'm really looking forward to more of this, seldom are there stories with religion that do it right and this feels right...
Ofc with the beautiful artwork of Boichi
