One of the best ones I've read in awhile, sure it was a little confusing at the begining, and it also got a little repetitive later on, but it kept me reading through the night.(seriously, stayed up till 4:00!)
One other thing I didn't like about this manga is that it ended a little to early, I finished it in three days, I usually only read manga that take at least 3 weeks for me to finish, but oh well.
The ending was beautifuly done, although I was a little pissed at the same time.(I'm still trying to get over it.)
Shou is one muthafusucking Bad-Ass, everyone should be more like him.........Excluding the one-man-one kill policy, or not, whatever you feel is right, haha.
So what I'm trying to get across your minds is just read it, It'll change your life forever.

Warning: Don't read "Akumetsu" if you have a bad internet connection(like mine), 'cause you may punch random objects out of frustration when the next page doesn't load fast enough.

a great manga, especially for intelectual readears because it raises many question about how people cold fix socities that have gone downhill. and he doesnt go killing randomly, since he let those three bankers alive so they could speed up the change of that society.

This manga is fun and full of violence!!!. There is a pretty neat little plot, some subplots for the lesser characters and an 2 over-arcing stories among the main one(shou's friend and the actual creation of the akumetsu).
+Great Art
+Nice story
+++++Violence is always a plus+++++++
-A few repetitive kills
-Could have had a better ending but it was still ok by most standards.
-----------------------------------------------------------

Now people have said(here) parts of the manga are unrealistic, the philosophy is ridiculous, etc. Its not. Its basically one guy taking justice into his own hands and being as shocking and violent as he can be.(which is pretty entertaining with this style of art). People try to analyze this series with implications to reality. Listen, we can sit here all day and discuss how this may or may not be the correct thing to do, but the ENTIRE point of the manga is that Akumetsu doesn't care. He's there to kill the corrupt(all of them) and be done. That was noticeable part of the manga, that people's ethics got in the way and that Akumetsu would bypass that with his own "justice".(this was pretty much the entire point of the policeman's plot).
-Please, don't pass this awesome manga up because someone misunderstood it, that would be a shame.

I love this manga. It is being released a bit slow that's my only complaint. I just hope there's a good reason for why he has his power (the mask? I have no clue)? I hope it doesn't come up with some lame reason. But it's so cool, I like the underdogs fighting.

This is a gem, one of those very few manga which has a capacity to pull you in and incorporate your own experiences into the story. To be honest, I was astounded that this was considered shounen. The complexity of the plot, the depth of the characters, the stark realism when describing governmental dealings, it makes the manga seem to be far too mature to be grouped with other shounen. If you want a manga rife with secret techniques, martial arts tournaments, or the other cliches which has recently defined popular manga, this is not the one for you. If, on the other hand, you want something more akin to a novel, something that can make you stop and apply the concepts to your world, then I strongly suggest you start reading this. I can guarantee you, you won't stop.

This...my friend ......is truly a work of art..........Kudos to the author, for such amount thrill, complexity, amusement, depth, simplicity, and value.

Very very well done, questions one's conscience, yet implores to fury. Tragic it maybe, I am surprised this isnt categorized as seinen. While there might be plot holes here and there...as expected of all shounen.....the author truly does a good job onto providing compensation for our minds. EXTREMELY original, and one of the few super-hero stories that have such realism and consideration for plot and logic weaknesses, even with all the scifi.

Seriously...just read it

Death Note....Seriously?

This is a great manga in its own right. It contains nice artworks and a good story plot. You cannot compare the two because they are simply different. Besides Akumetsu was made even before Death note was made so they are two entirely different pieces of Art. Don't get me wrong but if you compare mangas is just an insult both to the manga's and their mangakas which are working hard in their own respective right.

Why Compare this to DeathNote?   
Rating: N/A

This is easily my all time favorite manga, having read it twice so far, I feel a third time is also possible in the futur.
On a side not, many people are saying "it should not be compared, as that is an insult to DeathNote" This is laughable incorrect, the stories themselves are about two kids given differnt kinds of power to save their country, and go about it their own ways. Comparing this with DeathNot is the same as comparing any two shounen that both have a main character with some sort of power.

There is no reason to compare these, to do so would only show insecurities towards your liking of the favoured manga.
In my own oppinion, this was 100x better then Deathnote, which I was unable to finish reading because of the bordem it gave me. Shou's overall attitude towards everything made him a better character in my eyes, and the art was imppecable

A Truly Classic Series

i began reading akumetsu after i had finished death note and i can say this for sure that except for the fact that the main character kills people nothing is similar and people who shun this manga by comparing it with death note can go f*** themselves. it is even better than death note at some places.

akumetsu is a completely different manga with new plot and methods. this series had me seriously interested in it and kept me wondering what would happen next. yeah, the idea of cloning may be old but the way it is used is completely new. eventhough this is a serious manga it has its own fair share of jokes and comical situations.

no one seems to notice it but the author knows some serious s**t about the government policies and the various related establishments.

what i really liked in this series was the flashback revealing everything about the origins of "perfect one" and what he did.

i give this series a a perfect score and recommend it to anyone who is hates corruption and wrong things done by the government.
