Decent shonen/seinen, but ends too quickly?

Both the writer and artist are very creative; you can tell that they've put in quite a bit of effort into designing the looks of the characters, be it costumes, weapons, or fighting styles etc (the artist is evidently heavily inspired by King of Fighters--main character looks like K'.) The feeling I get from this manga is a bit like a modern-day Rurouni Kenshin. It's classed as a Seinen for the violence presumably, but story-wise it's more like a Shonen.

The build-up to the conclusion feels less than climatic however (I'm into the second-last volume), and I doubt if the author can tie everything up neatly in the last volume. As such, I'm expecting a weak ending...

The artwork drew me in!

Yes, like my subject says, the artwork really caught my attention. I like reading most Seinen and shounen because it provides really good-looking guys in action for me. wink And this one...MAN, two good-looking dudes equalled a few for me! I really like how the bodies are drawn for both men and women in this one and, though I'm not a big fan of TOO much blood, I think the action was totally heating!

Lots of fighting that at first glance looks almost real real. Realistic world and all characters obey some form of physics laws. I really like the art and the style. Blood, gore and violence - when needed, drama - when needed. Almost nothing out of place.

Cool enough...

This manga is cool enough. I especially like that the lead guy is half Puerto Rican...Hah now that's different considering that most mixes in manga are Euorpeon/Asian in origin. The art is nice, not the best I've seen, but nice. I like the characters enough even if the story line hasn't just pulled me in as of yet. Over all, if you're looking for something to tide you over till your fav manga's are updated then I'd recommend this.

Lots of blood, gore, wicked weapons, action filled fighting and good looking guys...now this is entertainment! The Art is great, the fighting is morbid and the plot is coming along nicely, even the characters are likeable. I'm really looking forward to the next chapter

Has too many cliché stuff in it and it may get really annoying, the art is totally cool, but the history isnt too special, and the way the main character acts is really annoying... yet, I cant say I'd recommend it for anyone, too bad the proyect is with no signs of life...
