Description
Makoto is a quiet, unobtrusive boy with passable looks and average grades. The last thing he expects is to be noticed by Yuuki - a model student who is as popular as he is notorious for his brilliance, his looks...and his uncanny knack for always having his way with everyone.

Thus begins the fateful partnership between a nondescript high-school student with budding supernatural powers and an intelligent, charming young terrorist-in-the-making.

A modern day Akira

I love Mori Kouji mangas a lot and this one is no exception. From a somewhat slow beginning(his other work share that problem) a gripping tale of terrorism and social revolt emerges that does bot focus on the typical goody goody two shoes but 2 conflicted individuals with relatable goals an whishes for the future who stand at the brink of darkness and one man who goes to far in his quest for global justice and dooms them all.
The Anti-American agenda the series pushes is also a nice change of pace and actually makes sense due to the main characters lives as terrorists and does not come off as a hate crime.
Most manga with a political agenda can´t say that about themselves. I just which the lead wasn´t a high schooler but teens have the most hate against the world so who knows. The female characters could use more edge too. Sure they are lively and charming and not sexdolls like a lot of their seinen sibling but they lack the complexity of their male counterparts and come off as the perfect girlfriend from a 80s movie. I frankly expect better. Suicide Island is different it that regard and i can´t recommend it high enough as a whole. Holyland though shared the same problem to a degree. Besides that the manga is near flawless and the art is very moody and even experimental in certain parts. Fans of Urasawa, Akira,Akumetsu, Death Note and Bande Dessinees in general will eat this up. I sure hope his winning streak will continue into the future. By the way. His Suicide Island is even better ! I would also like to point out that Kouji is a story consultant and friend to Kentaro Mira so fellow Berserk friends are warmly envited.

Blame the government.

Blaming government is too damn mainstream. Lets blame the people instead. biggrin I have mixed feelings about it. The idea is nice, the 'superpower' ain't that bad either and there's even creative explanation for it (That damn quantum trend... maybe saying creative is a bit too much... maybe it's not... like I said before, mixed feelings bigrazz), there are cool characters upon introduction, but as the story went on they had their 'cheesy' moments. The art... Well I have red 'Hollyland' before (a work by the same author), so I am kind of used to the art (yes, I am saying you might have to get used to it... biggrin ). But to call it bad is to confess in being a hypocrite, because art is art. Either you understand it or you don't, there's no such a thing as bad or good (preferences is not something you should use when passing judgement when it comes to manga or anything else if we are at it, but then again who am I to tell you what you should or should not, right?).
Anyway, it's a decent read but it didn't excite me that much. So it can have my biased 7.

Politics or teen angst?   
Rating: 1.0 / 10.0

I want to like this series, I really do but I can't.

The story starts off fairly promising. Teenage kid gets superpower and decides to try and change the world; similar to Death Note. And for the first few chapters, it seems like the story will be well thought out and in-depth regarding the nature of revolution and social change.

Except it doesn't go anywhere and gradually becomes shallow and immature.

After a while the idea of using violence to cause a revolution simply feeds into itself without reason. Dislike a politician? Kill him! A building constructed with taxpayer dollars without popular opinion? Destroy it! People who think that the current system is good enough? Ignore them!

The story drags things out by teaming the main character up with extremists who are even MORE violent and radical than he is. The superpowered main character isn't the only superpowered character. When the main character begins to question his motivation, hes encouraged to continue his actions... on the basis of a cult mentality of "oneness".

its too cool but this is only the first volume. i need to know what happens next! i love all the other works by this mangaka. all his leads are quite, shy, withdrawn, depressed character - they are real and different from all those genki guys. i have great hope for this manga to develop into an epic reflective story

Well ive read until chapter 8 (theres no more lol), the idea that the author its trying to say that we need to get our traditions again or something like that nvm, its good, the art its no so special maybe want to give a feeling to "real life characters" hope its gets better with time. But the story ts interesting.

So far not good

It's probably too early to rate this fairly, but so far it's has been pretty rubbish.
I keep getting told that this guy is a genius, but his ideology and plans as presented in the walls of text are pathetic. Teenage nihilism that basically amounts to 'lol let's destroy shit and hope something good happens'.

It's not that I mind that sort of character in principle, but I get the feeling that the mangaka thinks he's correct. The latest chapter (8) feels like the author projecting his feelings about the Japanese government. At the moment I'm expecting this to develop along the lines where they're portrayed as antiheroes with the right idea doing what needs to be done with a few nods to 'terrorism/killing people is bad', but no deep examination of their ideas.

If it does go the other way, that'll be good. If the pace picks up and stuff actually happens rather than the characters just having endless discussions, that would also help a lot.

This is something that has a lot of potential in concept - I love reading about supernatural terrorists. It's just a shame that the terrorists are so vapid and the author seems to be on board with them, plus poor pacing and ugly art.

This is the manga I've been waiting to read, hoping to read, praying to read for a lifetime! My perfect fantasy, my perfect reality-template fleshed out in the spoken word and hand-drawn image.
