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.

It's basically Elfen Lied + Kiseijuu only not very good. I'm a sucker for this sort of story but by the end I just didn't care. The characters are so incredibly dull - I don't care about her whining - she doesn't do a single thing to make me want to care about what she's going through. Cliche after cliche is regurgitated without anything to liven it up.

It's not that bad, really - it's just so mind-numbingly average that I feel it was terrible.

As the series progressed; not only did the writing get worse, as did the artwork. Sure mutant hands (Parasyte) and high school girls as super weapons (Saikano) are nothing new, but at least plot was bearable for the first volume. Then it fell apart. Needless back-stories, bad characterization, overused evil corporation schemes, plot holes, all help build "Variente's" grave. No requiem needed for this disappointment.

What are the chances of a girl in this series having the exact same name and number assigned, as another girl from another similar series? Nana, number 7? Elfen Lied anybody?
This whole "exterminating a race of monsters being kept top secret from the public" thing is probably one of the most unoriginal ideas ever in violent manga. I can name 4 other series off the top of my head that use this idea.
Oh, and let's not forget the hand from Parasyte...

Nice artwork and it's sort of interesting though.

This manga has clean artwork, an interesting plot, and just good story telling. Try it.
