So far, I've only read through halfway of vol 7 because I had to get SOME sleep before work started, but this manga is AWESOME. I can't remember how many times I picked it up and then dropped it in the beginning... but I have the whole series, so thought I'd give it one more chance as I didn't want to search for more manga to read.

OMG... this is SOOOOOOO good. It's really entertaining that sometimes you cannot stop laughing. It had me in tears a bit sometimes. Besides that, I like how it attacks politics and sheds light on some major issues with the economy. The issues described are not solely for Japan, as the apply to the US. Though it's fictional, I can't help but cheer Sou on for what he's doing. There's so many corrupt people out there... it's DISGUSTING.

Anyway, the plot is awesome, Shou is one of the most entertaining leads ever, and it's just... awesome. The drawing style is beautiful too. Most definitely would recommend this one. One thing I could do without is the gruesome murder scenes... but considering that it's not horror and it shows very little without the gore, I'll let it slide.

Why Compare this to DeathNote?   
Rating: N/A

This is easily my all time favorite manga, having read it twice so far, I feel a third time is also possible in the futur.
On a side not, many people are saying "it should not be compared, as that is an insult to DeathNote" This is laughable incorrect, the stories themselves are about two kids given differnt kinds of power to save their country, and go about it their own ways. Comparing this with DeathNot is the same as comparing any two shounen that both have a main character with some sort of power.

There is no reason to compare these, to do so would only show insecurities towards your liking of the favoured manga.
In my own oppinion, this was 100x better then Deathnote, which I was unable to finish reading because of the bordem it gave me. Shou's overall attitude towards everything made him a better character in my eyes, and the art was imppecable

This...my friend ......is truly a work of art..........Kudos to the author, for such amount thrill, complexity, amusement, depth, simplicity, and value.

Very very well done, questions one's conscience, yet implores to fury. Tragic it maybe, I am surprised this isnt categorized as seinen. While there might be plot holes here and there...as expected of all shounen.....the author truly does a good job onto providing compensation for our minds. EXTREMELY original, and one of the few super-hero stories that have such realism and consideration for plot and logic weaknesses, even with all the scifi.

Seriously...just read it

It's so absurd, it's funny and ridiculous. I almost died laughing when reading some of the parts. A pity the plot gets old very fast and after a while, it was quite draggy with all that non-stop violence. Still, it was fun to watch all the Shous running around like that.

And yes, I decided to read this till the end, this time round. But the ending kinda blew though.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
What? He was made to sacrifice so much, only for him to die in the end without accomplishing much? That was utterly unsatisfying! Plus, there were so many plot angles that were explored and only a few that were resolved. Oh well...

One of the best ones I've read in awhile, sure it was a little confusing at the begining, and it also got a little repetitive later on, but it kept me reading through the night.(seriously, stayed up till 4:00!)
One other thing I didn't like about this manga is that it ended a little to early, I finished it in three days, I usually only read manga that take at least 3 weeks for me to finish, but oh well.
The ending was beautifuly done, although I was a little pissed at the same time.(I'm still trying to get over it.)
Shou is one muthafusucking Bad-Ass, everyone should be more like him.........Excluding the one-man-one kill policy, or not, whatever you feel is right, haha.
So what I'm trying to get across your minds is just read it, It'll change your life forever.

Warning: Don't read "Akumetsu" if you have a bad internet connection(like mine), 'cause you may punch random objects out of frustration when the next page doesn't load fast enough.

Is this supposed to be romance or not? I mean, that whole thing with Shiina.....it was like, "If he was someone else, this would totally be romance instead." Uh.....

Anyway, it's fairly good, I suppose. The characters are cool. I mean the ones that don't die within ten chapters of being introduced, of course. And that's the biggest problem: the main plot point is "killing people." That's most of what goes on, and after awhile it gets really old. I finished it because I wanted to see how it ended, but I was glad when it was all over.

When it ended, I can only say I sighed with disappointment. such a masterpiece ending. I can only say i wanted it to continue on forever. But, since it ended, at least they gave this manga a finish that certainly kept up to its level.
although at the start it had a, somewhat, repetitive storyline within the first volume or two to set the pace, i'm glad i stayed with it. around chapter 100 was when i think it truly changed, and for the better. the plot became thicker, the characters more explained, and true intentions emerging. best of all, this all happened whilst in a unique view of politics.
all of this was all neatly complimented by the art, making it unforgettable.

dont get me wrong, this is a good manga, but not great. it has great art (which kept me reading). it has glimpse of greatness and excellency but does not amount to its potency. all the high ratings and great comments created a very high expectation out of this manga, but it was unfortunately never met to me. good manga, not great.

PS. comparing this to death note is an insult to death note itself.

All I can say was wow on how the manga ended. Really had my eyes sticked to the computer screen for 20 chapters.

Anyway, Akumetsu is one of those few original gems you can find in the world of manga. The story is very impressive and intelligent, it's no pyschological manga but it really makes you think. The character Shou a.k.a Akumetsu is just really awesome which makes up the flare that this story gives off. In other words, a must read for anyone who is a fan of a well put together story.

The ending volumes were kick ass, i won't forget this manga anytime soon.
