Let's be honest with ourselves, this manga (manhwa?) sucks. Sure, the art is pretty damn good, but everything else it has going for it... well, let's just see. The story is lame. Of course he just happens to be a kind-hearted demon. Of course, he's the son of the demon king. Of course, he is retardedly attractive when he's not being-- well, retarded. Of course he's overpowered and invincible with a little bit of black matter. Of course when he saves a person's soul, they wake up alive back in the human world. Of course, EVERYONE who ends up in hell is innocent. Sounds awfully convenient doesn't it? This is the definition of a lame plot device. Then we have the comedy; which just seems to take more away from the story, of what little there actually is. Frankly, the way he introduced the underlying main plot with the appearance of an "old friend" from nowhere kind of made the decision for me; and I stopped reading. The flashback was stupid.

tis true. Skip the one-shot. Start with the first issue and go on. The beginning will feel very cliche but as soon as you reach issue 15 onwards and after the intro of a certain protagonist the series really holds its own and even puts a twist on a certain genre convention regarding its powers (the twist is genius). The male protagonist might seem like a typical shonen hero but his sympathy for humans and all is really touching and it actually gets to you and makes you feel for him. All in all, this is one series which is on top of my reading list.

I'm disappointed is the way the manga develops. What I mean by that is that after a few nice chapters (14) they go from a original idea (the lawyer of hell) to something like bleach. I don't really like that, however it still is good enough to encourage other people to also read it. Why because the hero is someone who isn't ridiculously strong but ridiculously weak. Having weaknesses makes the protagonist likeable, He's one of the most likeable characters I've seen.

They're taking a break? Cliched shounen? Unless we are reading two different series, there's nothing that shouts Shin Angyo Onshi! bigger than
Spoiler (highlight to view)
a few light-hearted, episodic first arcs; a loyal midget as a sidekick; a protagonist with a dramatic past who has been exiled from his own country and coming back just to find that everyone is his enemy.

Judging from SAS, this should quickly evolve into an epic series with major plot twists and flashbacks, but probably not as sad and dark. Hopefully I'm wrong about the last bit though. MOAR plz!

Seem like after Shin Angyo Onshi, they choose to give us a break by bringing us a cliche shounen and even try out some echi xD. Maybe it will piss off their fan who enjoyed their marvelous seinen series which have much more serious story. But I really enjoy it, let's see if they can make a marvelous shounen. At least just keep using their epic art is already so great.

so far, i must say, the beginning is very shounen in which makes the story boring for more mature readers. Also, i am not really a fan of one shot like stories piled together to make a series (the beginning of the series). I mean, I can always just reread Eatman for that kind of series. Anyways, so far the story is beginning to get better, however, i must say, the beginning rather sucked.

I totally agree with son of eskimo I also enjoyed shin angyo onshi and Island and graded both of them to 10 but this one lacks something . Art is good plot also looks like it could become in to something interesting but charackters are kinda to much unrealistic to me well maybe i m searching to much personality in shonen characters ....... but still I feel that it could have been so much better and I mean not just characters fights also are made as shonen as posible ...

got to say, i loved shin angyo onshi and island, but while this isn't bad, it's not even in the same league, i wish they could have continued zombie hunter instead, i've always been sincerly pissed that that was cancelled

There are just 4 chapters,so i can't say anything right now , but the story is fine and the art is good.If the mangaka make it good like Shin Angyo Onshi (SAO), it would be great. In my opinion , this manga can't be as good as SAO. For now, let's wait for the next chapters
