This initially looked promising

Some people I talked to even named it a classic. So, naturally, I had high expectations. I mean, Ishinomori, I love you, but this was by far your worst work.

The only parts of the artwork that were nice to look at the the many, many, never-ending full-pages on scenery, often just trees or a skyline. I gave it a three because some parts of the plot itself were interesting, but most of it just made me think 'why am I bothering?'

I would only recommend this manga to people who either want to read the earliest of Ishinomori's works, or if they really like looking at five pages of different angles of trees.

But this is a pulpy, good, horror and action story.

It´s like a B horror movie with a tragic ending. This mutant child has been chased for years by a detective agency. Along with his mutant pet. He decides to take revenge on those that have pursued him.

And all of their friends, families, businesses, hell, he says he wouldn´t mind killing all of a japan. Now there´s an anti hero, though I never found myself rooting for him. Maybe I exaggerated a bit.

But he doesn´t know why he´s being sought. This story reminds me of early batman strips, and the supposed myth of batman at the beginning of his career. You might also be reminded of death note a little. As well as frankenstein´s monster.
