This manga has a really unique artwork. The plot is interesting and unique, whereby it does not just focus on one character. The characters are lovable and share a deep friendship. At first I was fooled by the short description, but upon trying out the first chapter, the first few pages caught my attention, and I can't help hoping for more. A great manga worth trying out!

I think this series has a lot of potential. It starts off pretty easy going--doesn't get right into the thick of the plot and lets the reader get used to the world and situation these characters are in and we get to explore their personality a bit before it gets too heavy. The plot may seem a little typical at first, but the character design and their mysterious pasts are just intriguing enough to keep me looking forward to each new chapter. I think I would buy this one, if it continues to be interesting in the next few, and if it ever reaches the US.

OK. First of all, a very vague spoiler about chapter 4:
Spoiler (highlight to view)
it ends in a cliffhanger! I'm glad Maigo Scans left in the teaser for the next book. Wait a minnit, I guess since this is an action manga you might think it's an action spoiler. Only sort of, compared to the other sequences. But I wanna know more about her and now I gotta waaaaait!

Enough of my spoiled spoilerish ramblings. For a first tank, or even a fifth, well done. The tech designs are universe-internally consistent by and large, although the "katana" designs must include some very busy nanobots. Well, I suppose to be effective nanobots would have to be.

Anyway, good character history and plot telegraphing without making it obvious beforehand but giving you just a little of that "Ohhh!" feeling in retrospect. Plus, a couple of the early fights give you a really good feel for the level of the action without being boring. The

fight during the meeting
could have been especially boring given

its length,
but the cut-aways and chapter ending made it one of my favorites.

There's a depth of potential hidden in the central character's background and the constraints he faces in society. I am glad to see the series made it to volume 3, and I hope the series lives up to its promise. I'll be eagerly waiting and making sure I get to keep the rating at:
