Description
Jin, a mysterious kid with a halo carved in his hand, and extraordinary fighting skills, lives with his grandfather in a beggar's community. In other place, the old scientist Amagi is searching for professor Kanzaki, to ask him for the whereabouts of the "player" -a kind of genetic altered humans- Zet, which they created some years ago. Soon, Jin and his grandfather are attacked by a mysterious man who turns into a monster. The connection between professor Amagi and professor Kanzaki, seems to connect also young Jin to the mystery of the "players", and Zet.

Zetman is an odd thing. As with the author's other manga, the story seems to be jumping a lot of back and forth, with no clear direction. It starts off in the future, then goes back a number of years, following one character, skips ahead a few years, and after a while, changes to another character and follow him for a number of volumes, and by the end of volume 5, it still hasn't caught up to the time period it started in in volume one, nor have we seen what would appear to be the main character for two and a half volumes.
Furthermore, there is a lot of unnecessary violence. Don't get me wrong, I quite enjoy violence in manga, but the way it's portrayed in Zetman is just perverted. It's basically guro, with a lot of attractive girls, usually high school girls, getting shot in the head, getting their heads smashed open, or being cut in half, while others get drugged and raped. It's primarily an annoyance, since it seems to detract from the manga, and since it serves no other purpose than to satisfy the author's perverted sexual fetish.
As always, the art is very nice, but I wish the author would take a couple of writing classes, or get someone else to write for him. It's just never been his strong side.

I never thought the mangaka of I''s (which is my favorite romance manga) could make such a good shounen. It's definitely between my favorites, but it would be better if someone scanlated the chapters faster...

Finally, Masakazu Katsura came out with a series that have a cool leading hero. Only read until Vol 2, Chap 17. So far, very YUMMY.
