Aflame Inferno is about a self absorbed high schooler, Kang Shichan, that gets caught in the middle of a battle between demons. Injured severely and near death, the demon Inferno merges with the student to save his life. Together they win the battle to discover that they are inescapably joined. The only hope of ever being separate beings is to gather 1,000 Invento Hells and find the right spell of Resurrection. Can Kang Shichan balance hunting down demons with his school work?

This's been on hiatus for so long, but now that he's started finishing some of his other works, I've started to hope that he'll manage to start this up again. Im Dal Young DOES still have a lot of projects going, tho...
Humans don't have souls!
for an Im Dal manga it not bad I think I favor this over Freezing It has a nice concept but like always Im dal young's choice of name is random and weird if you are fascinated by demons/jinns then this manga concept have some surprising speculation for you
Not Bad, Not Very Good Either
At this point we should know how works by this author go. He takes a traditionally shounen story archetype (this time: form-contracts-with supernatural-entities-and-battle-other-contract-couples a la Zatch Bell or Fate/Stay Night) and infuses it with mature content (this time: main character is arrogant and selfish with almost no redeemable qualities and a major character dies within the first volume). This one is a bit worse than this author's other works but you should know what to expect.
good cookie cutter manga
if u are in for character dev...step out if potrayal of chauvinism at its peak is ur thing ...be right on it anyways fanservice is in loads...some interesting plot twists
Nothing new, but still fun
You know what? Cheesyhoboe is right, this is a by-the-numbers action shonen involving demons. DO NOT go into Aflame Inferno believing you'll find something that'll blow all other shonen mangas/manhwas away, even all other shonen mangas/manhwas with ecchi. You won't find it.
Having said all that, there's still something about Aflame Inferno that keeps me coming back chapter after chapter. The artwork is good, particularly if you like ecchi, and even if you don't, you'll probably still like it. I don't usually like it, but rather than using the ecchi to humiliate the female characters in some way, (apart from the first chapter) this is more of a case where the main female is drawn in an idealized, provocative way, which I have no problem with.
As for the characters, I don't like the main character--4 volumes in and I can hardly tell you anything about the guy: what he wants out of life, his like/dislikes, nothing. He's more of a collection of accomplishments rather than an actual personality. But even if Kang Shichan is lame, nearly every single character is better, especially the 4 kings of hell. Each one is very different than you expect him/her to be--not quite evil, not quite good, and they all have interesting relationships with one another. So far, it seems like they will be the focus of the series, which is very, very good, except that it makes Kang Shichan sort of extraneous--he's there because he's Inferno's host and is in control of their body, but why not have just made Inferno the lead and forget about him all together?
The romance is pretty good too. Kang Shichan has 3 potential women he could end up with: Of course Chaehee or Gehenna, but also surprisingly

Inferno, who was very pretty when she was human.
Undoubtedly it'll be either Chaehee or Gehenna, but that last one could be very, very interesting if it comes to pass. All in all, I'd say give this one a shot as it's fun and you'll probably like it.
Great Manhwa...Shame about meep tho
This is truly a great piece of work. Im Dal Young comes up with another great series. It really is too bad that Meep scans, the group that was scanlating got shut down. i wonder who's going to take over...
Another Im Dai Young manga, and a good one. If you've read anything else from him you'll know what to expect here. This manga is a pretty typical high school shounen action series involving demons, who the main character finds himself fusing with, allying with, and fighting against. While it all sounds by-the-numbers (and it is), the world and setting are interesting and fairly fleshed out, the action scenes are smooth and exciting, and all of it is accompanied by the off-beat and slightly deranged tone and characters that can be spotted in any Im Dai Young manhwa... oh, and the ecchi. Don't forget the ecchi. It's an entertaining read.
Good, Unique, Interesting.... READ IT
like the subject, this is a good and interesting manwha, read it, you wont be disappointed. Seriously, the author im dal young is a freaking genius. i have read 4 of his 6 series, and each one of them is a favorite in their genre....
read this, then all of the authors others works, namely unbalance unbalance, and kuro kami. you wont be disappointed
EDIT: dont read OrangeLock's post below me, that dude is a prick and his post contains massive spoilers. you have been warned

Being the sorta paranoid oversensative person that I am, I find that most of my thought on this series goes towards worrying about how this will end for Chaehee, and if after all the gathering is done they end up using the resurection spell on her...being that she actually died too. suppose the difference being is that Shichan knows what is going on and Chaehee is basically the living dead and clueless
that said, im not really sure whats holding me back from giving this a 10, I'm pretty sure i will eventually give this a 10 but its just too soon to do so i think. it has some interesting character that i definately want to get to know better and also has there seem to be a lot of hidden and hinted at things going on that you will keep you wondering peoples true motives. the style of fighting in this series is seems to remind me of Negima, im pretty sure that it will develop nicely right along side the story. All in all its an interesting world, i hope it stays around for a good long time.

One of my Favorites
i personally love this series. infact, i've just discovered it today and i couldn't stop myself from finishing the whole series in a matter of hours. the plot is nicely done, full of action with a dash of mystery. the romance needs a bit more color if you ask me but then again, i'm sure Gehenna got that part covered pretty well ; )
i'm hoping to see this manga grow it's reputation into one of those mangas that you will never quite forget which reminds me to ask, doesn't anyone know when Volume 3 or Chapter 14 comes out? i'm not sure if the publisher/author is still active. i've checked some other sites but so far, they have nothing to reveal...
the two main characters in this story kind of reminds me of Yuki-sama and Tohru from Fruits Basket (which is another one of my all time favorite) although the main character comes off as a little bit too much of a jerk at first (and hopefully that will change over the series!)
all in all, i'd give it 10+ if i can, but since i can't, i'll just give it a 10 ^_^
