Rain Jewlitt, known as the Methuselah, is a spaced-out, immortal, 624-year-old man dressed in priest's clothes. He's got eternal youth and a large price on his head... put there by those questing after the secret of his immortality. Machika Balfaltin is a tomboyish, energetic 14-year-old girl who, upon the death of her grandfather, sets out to kill Methuselah, the one bounty her assassin grandfather, Zol the Grim Reaper, couldn't kill. Instead, however, Machika ends up being saved by Rain again and again from other aspiring bounty hunters attacking them both. Sound like the beginnings of an odd relationship? You won't believe where their journey takes them...

A MUST READ
definitely one of the best manga i've read. it's a good mix of shoujo and shounen, but the romance probably makes girls a bigger target. fast-paced, great plot and art, and wonderful character development (aka yay romance between rain and machika!). what's not to love? (besides the fact that we're all dying to read volume 9 TT___TT) seriously, go read it. now.
They're human. They've got human qualities. And its great to see a author achieve this. He may not be human, but he is more human than any other being in the world. I love Rain. I love this manga. By far one of my favorite.
a great action/adventure story with a fast-paced plot and a wonderful array of lovable characters. And it's not all humor and fighting-there were a few scenes that tugged at my heart too. The art style is very shounen-like but great at expressing the characters' feelings. The girl is kickass but I wish she would stop calling out Rain's name so much- recalls bad memories of Fushigi Yuugi- where Miaka would be shouting Tamahome's name all the time.

For some reason I did not think that this manga was not going to be too good, but i was completely wrong. IT IS EXCELLENT! One of the best I have read. I love the story and the romance!! I can't for the future releases!
i really digged this manga
this manga is really good is one of my favorites now its a shame that the group is inactive
The art is cute, clean and beautiful. Furthermore, the story makes sense. I actually can imagine how Yuca felt, why he said, to him, life or world was all dreams to no end, what made him suffer to the point he wanted to destroy all. Ozaki Kaori is definitely a great story teller.

This manga is by far one of my favorites. I can (and have) read it over and over without getting bored or tired of it. The characters are great, the plot is great---- it's all great. It has action, comedy, tragedy, romance, the whole package. I really like how it isn't a typical shoujo. There are no bubbles and flowers floating around randomly in the background. Even better, the heroine actually has a backbone! And the hero is someone you can really feel for. This is one of the few mangas that has actually made me cry. (a lot)
I recommend it!
the best manga ever! and now i have volume 8! when is vol. 9 going out? pls pls tell me..
beautiful art, great story, interesting characters and not an overly sappy romance... what more is there to say?
Rain the beauty^^ XD
I realy like this manga. I don't realy get the plot though... Is he looking for that angel reancarnation? But the events are interesting after a while. The art is very good, clean and pretty(Rain is such an eye candy^^ can't stop looking at him... I get stuck on pages because I want to look at him more) *cough* besides this the other chars are also good. And realy love the romance that is between them, very cute and not to much^^ better than many other shoujo manga.
