Description
From Dark Horse:
With a worldwide war raging between humans and monsters, the young delivery men of the Gaya Desert Post Office do not pledge allegiance to any country or king. They are banded together by a pledge to deliver. Fast. Precise. Secure. Banya, the craziest and craftiest of the bunch, will stop at nothing to get a job done. Known as the Explosive Delivery Man for his risk taking, bold resolve, and impeccable record, Banya agrees to complete a wounded soldier's mission to transport a parcel of great importance--not knowing what dangers lie in store for him and his friends! As their arduous journey begins, Banya promises, "There isn't a delivery I can't make. I always deliver."

a fun action and blood ride   
Rating: 9.2 / 10.0

if you just love death upon death, dismembered limbs, blood and innards, this is the manga for you. the art is phenomenal, and the way it detailed lovingly every single piece of flesh making everything drenched in blood is a boon to any gore fan. this is one of the most gorgeous manga/manhwa i had ever read.

the plot is pretty cool too. it start with look like unconnected episodes of delivering mails, but toward the end we can see the overall arch towards the ending. however, it saddens me that this manhwa is not longer. there are some backstory i would love on banya, the kids in the post office, why the priest is locked up, and who is the bad guy. it seems 95% of the story focus on inventive way to slice someone, i would love some of it to show a bit of backstory. and the characters dont really have development, but its excusable for an action focused story i guess.

overall, this is worth the read, and i recommend this to any action and gore fans out there.

the second half of the story should probably have had more time to develop, and since it had to go through the general plot, introduce the dragon, and go over banyas past everything was pretty shallow due to how much had to be crammed in. If possible it would have been awesome if the story had followed banya as he protected the girl and got used to his demonic self and demonic sword(best character imo XD). anyway even as is it's a pretty fun ride and leaves you imagining how they lived after the end. i've seen better and it could use a sequel, but even then i'd recommend reading this to anyone who likes action/adventure.

Who was Banya?!

HIGH RATING for the fact that this manga has all three complete traits off of my list: Art, Story, and Action!

This manga honestly doesn't have a consistent storyline, but it does have one main thing consistent, and that's Banya's job as a delivery man. And not only that, he has fighting skills and friends to back it up.

Somewhere along in the story,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
it was mentioned that Banya was not always like this and I'm assuming the author purposely left out Banya's past. It was mentioned that he was some sort of demon or human devil that continuously fought and murder.

Great character and monster designs made this manga stand out straight away. However, it would have been much better if the story had more time to develop. As it is, it feels rushed and fades into the background letting action take place at the forefront of our attention. Its not a bad thing as violence is accompaneid by stylish art.

all seemed good until the last vol or so. The ending seemed rushed but it was still a good read. Its got humor, art is great, lots of good bloody fights. Even after the end, I'm still left wondering whats the story to banya. I really like how the author played out the delivering storeis at the beginning and that's why i had a lot of expectation for the ending. Definitely worth to read this but just wished it had more.

Art is fantastic, very gory, comedy is nice as well. The only problem is that it all seems way too rushed, they tried to incorporate some sort of storyline into what was a perfectly decent action-manga, which they failed at.

So...yeah...It's perty, but it won't make your noodle think.

Very interesting! What kept me reading surprisingly, is the humor which at times is Lmao. Humor aside, artworks and story is capitivating. A worthy manga to check out

This is like another Version of Naruto. Except it's mixed with The Lord of the Rings or something.......

This manga has cool art with cool loking characters. The action is very well though and drawn. It's also gory.
There's no big plot so far, but I've only read the first volume. There's a lot of good humor and the villain characters that just briefly appeared are mysterious enouth to keep you reading.
Overall, this manga is very promising and I recomend it
