The one Photographer that would risk it all. Tatsumi Saiga a Photographer who wanted to free a girl Kagura Tonnouzu who had no experience of freedom due to her mother Shinsen Tennouzu's hatred of her. She was jealous of her beauty and grace. Saiga onece risked his life for photography in a war battlefield capturing pictures of the depth of war. Chouji Suitengu, The main antagonist. Apparently he is only using Kagura and her mother to extend his influence and profits, but there is a hidden vengeance plan in his agenda. He is a Euphoria with the ability to manipulate his own blood and use it at will to attack and defend. He carries around a music box that belonged to his younger sister, Yui. His real name is Ueno Takeshi. An Eurhoria was a virus that traveled through blood. So Saiga one day decided to check out a case that his boss assigned him about this secret club. He took his camera disguising him self as a member and was caught by the owner Chouji and was given a power by a 'goddess' to kill when taken a picture.

The characters seem to have a dark past or at least interesting but have their own unique way of thinking. There can be times when there evil over takes them and the kindness just stops and goes. But overall any character can be liked by anyone.

Drawing Style
The art is very good and the animation matches the drawings. I would say that you would enjoy reading and watching Speed Grapher.

The depth and the concept and the plots and the way they think can surprise you make you cry and laugh the whole way through. The background of story seems normal but the actual story is quite unique. Speed Grapher is also an indictment of the capitalism and materialism of Japanese society
