I´ve only read one chapter, yet i love it.
I loved Death Note to, but i think this manga will be somewhat better. Perhaps because i dont like action so much. But lets pray that this one will be a big manga, and continue for a while biggrin, this is the best manga ive read for a while, and it would be rather dissapointing if this were to end soon sad
Anyway, 10/10 biggrinbiggrin

Good to that the author got the eyes right ^^ they have souls in they now unlike the ones in death note.
Anyway this could be a hit or miss for me, I mean adding logics and complexity into the manga's concept is not a good idea, the main character is too serious imo and the comedy feel as if it was forced into the manga , very awkward.BUT! as far as the romances go this could be interesting ^^

Even though I've only read 1 chapter, I can already tell this is going to be more comedic and light hearted than Death Note. I also love how they make references to Death Note and other popular shounen manga. I can't wait for the next chapter~ biggrin

I'm not going to rate it yet but since only one chapter has been release so far but that one chapter has me hooked so far and I'm really looking forward to future releases. I'm kinda of hoping this story will develop towards an happy ending cuz if it's another ending like Death Note,,,,,,,,I'm going to be really piss. Also keep in mind to not compare this to Death Note since this manga is entirely a different story and genre ( I might be wrong on the genre part since only one chapter has been released )

It says "by the creators of Death Note" on the first page, so I expect something like it. Anyways, it looks great, and I look forward to future releases.

lol At first, I thought it would be something like Death Note, because both main characters are bored of normal life (though the main character on this one is not genius). But the author decided to make a turn into something you would never expect. The first chapter was so funny and awesome. I look forward for more!
