It follows the life of a homeless boy living with his "grandpa". The story starts to kick off when they encounter a man trying to commit suicide mumbling something along the lines of "before it is too late". Of course from then on the action begins and the dark plot begins to unfold with each volume.

hmm keep reading this manga, unlike what the other guys said, 10 or 20 chapters later the main character returns. Though you would think this is a superhero manga looking at the (lame btw) name, its more seinen like, definitely not recommended for children. Ah, as others said, the romance is quite nice too, i definite recommend you to read this.
Very good series, extremely deep in its execution. The author did an awesome job in this manga, because you never feel as though anything is out of place. Sometimes, I felt as though the story was too slow or boring even, but the one thing that was constant was that I felt that everything that was happening in the story was necessary to the whole experience. Everything flows so well in Zetman: the action, the drama, the evolutions, the character interactions, etc. Great piece of work, definitely recommended for those action/heroic plotline lovers out there.
Cool as Hell
it may have things that people dont like, but hell its awesome to me Its true that is easy to get lost in the story but for what i have read till now (wich is all) the story develops itself slowly (reeeally slowly) but (at least for moi) is worth it
As many have mentioned the story is quite start-from the ending-go-in-future-go-back-present etc... But still, after reading vol 7 im positively suprised and looks like this manga will be in my top 10 all time favs if it keeps up this =) You shouldnt give up on this just because of the side story, it will most likely blend nicely. Art is also top quality and character design is very cool ;]
It's a little slow at times, but I like it.
To forget quickly...
Some kind of low rated Gantz -the art is the same than for I''s which is quite strange on first sight : most of the girls of I''s have thus their counter part in this .... thing . -The storyline is in the same time poor (it only paves the way for slow paced fights and useless depict of guts ) and without the slightest coherence . -Characters are very simplistic like shonen ones ...except we're supposed to be in a seinen.... - the general background is gruesome : there is as much sex and violence as in MPD Psycho , Berserk and Gantz gathered without the faintest ground .
Definetely to forget... read rather one of those quoted above .
Not that good
I liked VGA and I''s much better, thosetwo were like the only shoujo i ever read.
This is like an attempt for a "1 character shonen with serious storyline." Those fail. good 1 character shonens with serious storylines do not exist.
If this was maybe a seinen, and concentrated more on storyline and themes witha mature main character, then it'd be good. Or if a larger variety of unique characters were offered with humor mixed in, then it'd be good. But this guy tried something in between, which is...unheard of.
I hope Masakazu should really try and go for a slice-of-life thing. Instead of concentrating on storyline, he should concentrate on character relationships, which he was pretty good at.
seinen manga with the pace of a shounen.
Well it showed a LOT of promise at the start; but never lived up to it in the 6 volumes I've read of it. Im not gonna state the obvious and say that the art is awesome; oh damn I just did.
Oh well, check it out if you like superhero-type stories with a mature style. Just dont expect too much in terms of coherent storytelling.

have to agree with 1&2, so ignoring that specific part i will give 9/10, otherwise 6/10 tho i like the drawing
ups and downs
I agree with what Anonymous said (who gave this 6/10). This series starts out REALLY good, but then when they switched main chracters, it just goes downhill from there. You'd be wondering what the hell's going on, and such. It starts going downhill from chapter 31 (volume 3), although you won't notice it right away. Chapter 30 also starts out the same (frame by frame, for 13 pages) as chapter 64. It starts to get better again around chapter 64 (volume 6), where it connects to the first story and main character again.
