A Byouma is a medical weapon created by ancient sorcerers to kill the infected or those around the infected and make it look like an illness. Even centuries after the sorcerers have died, these weapons still wander the world, infecting and killing people. Narutaki Soutaro and Izumo Momo are Shadow Doctors, trained to combat these Byouma through unorthodox means. Using magically created anti-Byouma medical equipment, they perform “operations” on the medical weapons to separate them from their hosts and destroy them. Will their special weapons and brilliant teamwork be enough to get rid of all the Byouma in the world?

Was interesting don't mind a over powered main especially if even though he is he can't kill because of this or that(kinda balances out his strength). I only have two slight problems with this manga or I would have given it a 8 and that's they call them a demon disease when it's straight up possession or more of a demonic parasite. The other thing that bothers me more is three years of wtf actually happened during that time and please tell me in that time the only line he could come up with was everything reproduces......

It's not amazing, but it's a really good read. I did not feel a desire to skip any chapters, I really enjoyed the entire manga. No, there's not a lot of romance, but the two main characters do end up together...sort of. No kissing if that's what you're looking for, but after a while it doesn't even matter.

It's funny, cute, and sometimes dark.I really enjoyed it. People complain that the characters are too cutesy, but after a while you sort of forget about that. It's a good read, give it a try.

This is one strategy I acquired for reading too many manga: skip all garbage and read only the portion you enjoy.

I applied this scheme on this manga quiet effectively. I literally skipped about thirty chapters, and now I am quiet enjoying this series. You might want to try the same thing if you couldn't bear with early chapters just like I did.

This is a very interesting story although you have ditzy protagonists the characters and story are well put together the first chapter is promising after a few chapters in it will be a bit repetitive but its to build up the next plot which brings more excitement and leaves you wanting more its an overall great series if you want romance though too bad dont expect much its more for humor

I thought it was going to be a more mature story, because of the first chapter (it really started out interesting, I felt hooked), but a few chapters in it quickly became a typical shounen, bringing people together and saving lives with the power of friendship! Ugh.

At first I was really enjoying it but then it got repetative and boring so I dropped it. There really isn't any romance just some echhi and the girl has a huge crush on a guy who doesn't really even like her but she follows him to ends of the earth. Girls are so stupid. I'd never chase someone who doesn't even like me. I am a girl btw. Anyways it wasn't terribly bad. It was just kinda boring and nothing new and exciting.

A nice fresh new series with a rather cliche "boy protagonist who's not all he seems to be" trope but interesting storyline and ideas in general. Agree with others about the cute characters and pretty good drawing style. Definitely a promising new shonen series to keep track of.

hope it takes of well in Japan so we can see a decent number of volumes!

Main male character has good sword-play ability.
Main female character has ridiculous strength.
Good moral adventure story.

When I started reading it, I saw a great potential in Kaitai. Although it had all those shonen clichés and so on, I really liked the characters, the pace of the story and the art. It also remembered me of Double Arts, my favorite manga of all times.
But sadly the author couldn't achieve all the potential the series had in the beginning. It became a totally cliché shonen, with weak and inconscistent plot, rushed events and lacking novel things. Now we have a lot of boring and flat characters, with only a few being round. I was thinking in giving this series a 3 or 4, but considering all shonen limitations, I decided to give it a 8, after all, it's probably a good series to someone who is into shonen.

Lately, Shonen Sunday has some great series this year, from Arago to Kunisaki Izumo no Jijou, and the addition of Kaitai Shinsho 0 is no exception with it.

The title is sa far, not the typical, usual shonen manga that most qould expect (and hope it stays that way); art style is quite nice, but the plot is qutie original and great, and so far, the pace is going quite smoothly, neither fast nor slow. The characters are quite remarkable, and hopefully, there will be more unique characters in future chapters.

Overall, this is another great addition to Shonen Sunday's lineup and hopefully stays there for the long run.
