Description
At the age of sixteen Ryo Narushima was a genius and looked to have no trouble of getting into Tokyo University and joining the elite of society. However, that summer something cracked inside Ryo's head. With a small knife he brutally murdered both of his parents only leaving his sister alive and cowering in a corner. It is at this grotesque incident that our story begins.

Extra Note: At volume 20, the series changed publishers, which created a restart of the chapter numbers.

Starting from chapter 61 in volume 26, the first chapter from when the series returned from a long hiatus, the series has been completely written & drawn by Tanaka Akio. While Hashimoto Izou did write the series in the beginning, he had been doing less and less work starting from volume 4. Tanaka & Hashimoto reached a settlement and Shamo continued.

The story has less to it than meets the eye. The main character is supposably brilliant but he acts retarded at most times. And the pace of the story is incredibly slow. The pages are filled with lizards and all kind of things that have no revalence to the actually story. The fighting isn't interesting and in recent chapter with those chi blasts and all its not even realistic anymore.

Dark, brooding, evil and amazing.

None of the bullshit attacks you see in Naruto or Bleach here. This is about a real human's... or rather a real devil in human form. Born out of our society.

This is the shit, I'm telling you. Though I usually prefer the fantasy style action mangas... This is more real than anything I've ever read, even though it kinda scares me as well.

Either way, I recommend it !

It was kinda good for awhile I really wanted to see the anti-hero thing do good but the whole kill your parents stuff gets dragged on with this manga and it go's nowhere, the fightings good but it gets kinda dull, this manga hand potential but it's gone now.

Pretty good action on this manga but it has quite a lot of disturbing images and situations so its not for those weak of heart. I'm a big fan of action genre so i'm a bit biased rating this.

Anyway... mann... can't wait for more chapters! That new kung-fu chick will definitely gonna get f*cked too! lol

At first it seems like a new cool manga,but after awhile this manga does nothing but drag. it seems to go nowhere and has no other goal but to continue on a road of nothingness. I love blood, I love gore, but most of all I love story. This has really no story at all. (+_-)/

how could anyone miss this type of manga. Such violence plus great sport and add up a really badass hero, this manga is really a great read. If your into kick ass action and love to see blood spill out and wanna see cool martial arts, this ones for you. great story, great art, great action. Satisfaction guaranteed!!

I've been reading this amazing manga for some time and when i saw that another volume has been realeased, i realised that no one has rated it yet. So what the hell? I mean, mediocre mangas have tons of reviews..
Anyways.. this manga is for the ppl that likes too root for the really bad guy. Like, i really looove Berserk and i think that Gutts is pretty bad. But THiS guy is evil! And he's sure got reason for being a scumbag. You see him evolve from being a weak punchingbag, to a real kickass bastard, and maybe he will evolve even further, coming clean in the end(But i doubt it^^).
Art is great, and has a serious feeling too it.. no stupid jokes or panties, but the main attraction in this kind of manga is the awesome story and the characters.
I don't see if anything i wrote really made any sense, but if i've written this much crap about this manga.. It must be worth trying, right? You will NOT be disappointed!
For those who like serious and voilent mangas! (Berserk, Battle Royale, Freesia)

Cheese out!
