The mountain gods have sent down a punishment to the people of Japan. An owl by the name of Minerva. All who fall under this owl's gaze die, their eyes spurting out blood. One man stood up to the owl, a famous hunter by the name of Uhei, however just as he was about to loose the finishing bullet, he was interrupted by the American army taking the owl into their care for study.

Thirteen years later, an American warship crashes into a Tokyo harbor, and all the men on board are dead, their eyes bleeding. The owl has been freed, and it now rampages throughout Tokyo, killing at random and in mass amounts. The American government has decided that only Uhei, the man who nearly killed the beast before, can help them. So they send the Delta Force and CIA out to see just how the bird can be brought down...

I can't believe this outstanding, unusual, well crafted manga has only a 3-point review here! I'm not going to give it a 10 in retaliation, because yes, it's not for everyone.

But as people have said elsewhere, it draws you in. And when you're done, sooner or later, it draws you back. It's creepy, but meaningful, but humorous in the face of mystical catastrophe. Many of the characters could easily be revisited in another manga.

If you don't usually like stories marked Action or Thriller, give it a try. You might need to hold your breath a couple places if you're like me. But it isn't terror for terror's sake. It's well layered and beautiful in spite of itself.

I also like how international friendship is somehow created from the after-effects of international folly. It's...hopeful.

A creative premise is about the whole offering

While the inherent premise (the release of a cursed owl on modern civilization who almost instantly kills any living creature that enters its field of vision) is quite novel in the field of disaster-oriented manga, this offers very little else. The characters are by and large one-dimensional archetypes, stock right down to their appearances. And quite naturally, such a formidable foe would be very hard for our protagonists to go up against - so the rules get applied quite selectively where they're concerned, which really hamstrings the strange antagonist's credibility. I applaud the audacious weirdness of the concept, but the simple, straight-line plot (with one vestige of a predictable subplot), flat characters, and near total void of theme make this a pretty dry read.
