I know most people hate the cliche hero story but Shooto is a genuinely nice guy with his own faults so he's both likable and the reader can relate to him. The art isn't the greatest in the world but it's decent in its own sort of charm. The characters are all pretty cool and Ratman is such a badass looking kamen rider inspired anti hero that you just can't hate him, kinda reminds me of a cross between Venom, Batman, and Kamen Rider.
Wow, I read chapter 1 just now, and it seems QUITE GOOD! I don't really like the "superhero/supervillian" kind of mangas, unless the story is actually DEEP. This one isn't deep to me, but I really wanted to read it since this manga made the hero the villian! That's what hooked me in!

Just read the first volume of, starts off with your typical shonen want to be awesome fare. But the inclusion of superheroes/corporate spokesman makes this seem more like an American comic book rather than a Japanese manga. Enjoyed the twist of how he gets his powers. I'm willing to give this one a chance seems like it has a good future.
so far I like it pretty much, this is not your average shounen, the characters are definitely not single dimension, the main character started as weak person, but he has strong belief and very good personality, even so what I like that he always questioned every action he made, not really simple minded like in majority of shounen char, and even the seems to be a bad guy has another side.
the art is pretty clean and well drawn, definitely a good read
its called 'superhero' manga but really it is no different than any other mecha/fighting/superpower manga, just with a different term. its a shounen with weak lead that somehow gain incredible power and have pure heart, nuff said. as generic as it is,it is very enjoyable, the comedy get me in stiches at times, especially the jackys actions. i love straightforward shounen like this, with clean art, cute characters, nice fight and a dose of comedy
What do u value when u read manga?
Its all come down to what do u want in a manga. This manga is typically a happy manga with light drama that really wont bring u to tear. However, it have some decent comedies with the jackies in the early chapters. Not only that, decent art too. If u want a fun and relaxing thing to read, this is for you. If you r looking for some grand advanture, this isnt the right one.
ok give a good guy a super suit..... then tell him he (by contract) is a villian.... i just got to laugh at the sad turnout for our little illfated "hero"... then you throw in the escapades of the mime-like jackies and its perfect.... i mean those dudes just know how to be in the worst place at the worst time.... then when you think they are completely useless they do something right, and to be honest in my opinion i mostly kept reading to see what the heck they will pull off next.... the jackies are just awesome

Random Comedy JACKIES!!
Whahaha, its been a while since i had such a good read, to bad that there are only 17 chapters released... i want MOARRR (more), and the jackies are really good, i wonder how they are under their masks
Definitely a must read. The irony in the beginning is just hilarious! There are also 2 potential love interests and the art is quite good. I can't wait for the next chapter releases that manga got me really hooked. 10/10
Author is starting to run out of idea
Ratman was a good series until about 30 or so chapters in which the author writing skill deteriorate to a point of him writing a random plot out of no where and can easily be pick apart for all of its plot hole that all end with Ratman being consider more and more like a hero which is good in some way but it get old after 30 or so chapters, to a point where there aren't really much plot creativity left for the author.
