Aiko should be dead, but when she awakes in a secret hospital, she has no recollection of what happened that night. Until a monster showed up and her memories flood back. Her arm changed into a powerful weapon similar to the monster, a chimera arm.

Maybe some aspects of it are unoriginal, but the story itself is worthy a shot if you're into the all "becoming a monster to fight the monsters, but keeping your sanity"-kinda thing...
I also like the characters, with the cynical researchers and board of directors and the complete opposite; a policeman having learned from previous incidents and come to be more symphatizing with the main character...and the artwork is pretty good yeah.

okay, so the overused 'evil corporation' was clearly evident here, but i didnt pay that much attention to it.
of course, i felt that this was really realistic. I mean, she's a teenager, she's going to whine and cry because
Spoiler (highlight to view)
everybody she's ever loved is dead, and she witnessed their deaths.

thats gotta be hard.
actually, i think it was that good because it was short. 5 volumes, and they did not cram it full of new plots or characters, but it was short and sweet, the art and the little bit of romance is a plus too.
the only thing that irks me is-what happened to the rest of the chimeras? the book doesnt say.
the only complaint i have is that it needed some more characterization. you have the crazy overlord of the crazy operation, but he just suddenly comes out as being batshit insane and hes a really minor character.oh, and also the author introduced some things really abrubtly. i was like, whoa! that came out of nowhere and its so unconnected to the plot!
but oh well. i suggest you read this. its gritty and dark, and just the right length.

If I knew from the start how it ends, I'd never read it. I cried like stupid. Seriously, how can you give such an end for her, who suffered this much? Ugh, I need to stop reading mangas, srsly.
Overall it was a good manga - great art, plot maybe not that original, but easy to read. Okay, she whinned a lot, but hey, NGE's Shinji anyone? He's, like, the biggest emo in the whole fandom and still NGE is freaking famous.

need more development

as it is, it is actually pretty good, but i would love more character development on the main male part, i just thought his feelings for aiko is a bit too abrupt. i understand his backstory, but i just wish for something more. and there are alot of characters here, but with limited chapters, not much can be known about them, some of them i just know the name but not personality.

the art is very good, i love how the chimera is drawn. but its not too sickly, so people easily scared can read this.

the ending is too ambiguous to me. i guess people need to get what they want.

I have to say that this manga wasn't bad. Sure, it was predictable and the ending did not do the main character the most justice, but to call the MC whiny-- now that is just plain stupid. She doesn't even whine; she's just unstable. There is a difference. And she has the right to be unstable because of all the things that happened to her. Honestly, if all of that happened to you, and you weren't the least bit unstable-- then man, something is definitely wrong with you.

i thought it was really great, it's merciless and the fact I vividly remember a lot of it almost 2 years later speak a bit for it.
sadly it was also fairly predictable, it reminds me a lot about parasyte the art style is detailed and really fits this rather gory manga.
it was very good but i'm sure it could have been better i just can't say how since its not really one big problem as much as everything could have been a little better, the main problem would probably be that it got stuck in the start block for to long and then flew away at a rocket-like pace.

Yes, the protagonist is whiny and lethargic but i understand her i mean its kind of hard to adapt to the new environment just like that, i mean she've lived a normal life and then suddenly a whole new environment crashes down on her with the same respect a trailer have to a frog on the freeway.

this may not have been the best manga that i've ever read but so what. the art was really good and the plot wasn't too bad either (even if it did have some cliches and was pretty predictable).
i'm glad it was short because otherwise it would've been WAY too repetitive and it would just get stupid.
and what is up with some people saying that they were sick of her whiningconfused She barely whined considering what she'd just been through. I mean seriously!
i thought the ending was really good. it may not have been fair, but it was more... ummm...realistic? (i guess).
definitely worth the read.
