Description
Many years ago, an ancient civilization once ruled Earth. They were known for advanced artifacts and machines, but were destroyed in the end due to the misuse of their creations. Creating indestructible message plates written in Hebrew, these people left messages for later generations, informing them that if they could not find a good use for their creations, they should be destroyed.

Various entities such as paramilitaries, national armies and armed private forces began to secretly search for these "mysterious" artifacts in order to be used for their own good and against their enemies after the end of the Cold War. Only the ARCAM Corporation can stop these forces from destroying themselves with these "advanced" machines. With the help of its military arm, the ARCAM Private Army and their elite secret agents known as Spriggans (or Strikers), ARCAM plans to turn the tides of battle against those who would threaten the safety of humanity by using the dangerous artifacts.

Cool manga!

I've collected the 8 special edition mangas of it and it was impressive. Story of a teenaged Spriggan who takes on various paramilitaries and world powers such as the US, Britain and Russia in order to protect out-of-place artifacts, which is why this was heavily censored when VIZ translated it to English. I read the First Mission and Gold Rush one shot stories, never published in Shonen Sunday, but they have stories of Yu's first mission with ARCAM and his mission after college.

I've heard that Chuang Yi is doing an English translation. Let's all cross our fingers and hope they finish everything. If not, let's hope a scanlation group will take interest in doing so.

PS - I've recently found a good source for the Spriggan RAWs though.
