Good, but a few complaints   
Rating: 6.4 / 10.0

Before anyone goes crazy- 6.4 is actually a decent rating coming from me (when all of the manga on my lists are combined and averaged it comes out to around 4.8, last time I checked).

Anyway, there are a few good things about Akumetsu. It's clearly written to be thought provoking, and I actually quite like the way it addresses several intellectual concepts. The art is decidedly average, but it suits the environment well enough, especially the intensity. The real issues I have come with the excess of gore/violence (most of which is simply gratuitous and totally unnecessary), and some of the storytelling which I find to be often ill-paced and generally lazy. I suppose I'm just not the target audience when it comes to the violence, so I can overlook that, but the storytelling still gets me. In an attempt to seem more mysterious, suspense is vastly overused as a device which causes the plot twists to gradually become both predictable and mundane. Additionally, the way the author introduces more characters, and scenarios in general, is pretty formulaic. I can't help but occasionally feel that I'm reading the same thing over and over.

All that said though, this is a decent series, and worth the time to read for the concept alone.

this manga is great characters are deep u never know what might happen next and what makes this manga special its not the art ( even though art is great ) its the way mangaka tells the story i have readed many mangas till now and i can tell its diffrent from everything i have seen ( its kinda similar to death note in some ways but death note was created after the akumetsu ) the reason why i gave 9.5 because i have readen just 8 volumes and maybe ending will disapoint me but i doubt that

i recomend this to all who wants to read something out of ordinary ( i mean mangas like naruto bleach xblade and similar crap)

If you can forgive the bits of ranting politics and just give in to the flow of the story and the energy of the drawings you will greatly enjoy this manga. It is a tad wordy and you may not agree with the
Spoiler (highlight to view)
one man one kill suicide assassinations for political officials
though after the manga explains actions I can't help but want it to happen. If you want great action, art and a decent story line pick it up.

a great manga, especially for intelectual readears because it raises many question about how people cold fix socities that have gone downhill. and he doesnt go killing randomly, since he let those three bankers alive so they could speed up the change of that society.

awesome manga but.... the speed of it being released is rather slow (well i know i should be grateful with what i get but..... u know.... us human are all greedy) since all the volumes are out.... yet its releasin in like a weekly basis.... :/... the manga have tons of action. thus, i am unable to get to the conclusion from just 1 chapter(just like gantz)..... which sucks....

People, this manga's really crazy (in a good way). And yeh, its really rare to find this kind of mangas, especially this one's about politics.. I was kind of confuse in some part, but overall, I think this manga's amazing.

There's 18 volumes already, and only 3 volumes got scanlated/translated. Come on, translators! Drop the craps and start on the sick ones!
