Truly disappointing that it was axed.

The series is about a girl who goes around healing people with a disease that makes them transparent till they disappear. However what they are basically doing is converting their disease and giving it to themselves. The reason they can do that is that they have a naturally strong immunity to it. However doing it after a considerable amount of time does take its toll eventually. This disease can also spread to anybody that touches you skin to skin. So touching via clothes has no effect. So when a random boy (MMC) touches the FMC and is not only not affected but also halts the virus she had to take him back to headquarters. Of course one problem. He has to be constantly touching her otherwise the disease will immediately spread, killing her.

Im actually legitimately impressed by this manga originally. The manga starts great. Creating this setup and putting our main characters in a hilarious situation. It bring some legitimate funny moments to the point i was actually taken aback by this manga. The main cast as well was fantastic, the villains also brought a sense of danger and excitement to the stage. The series was cliche but not in a bad way. The author knew what he was making and executed them, to my surprise, really well. It wasn't like a masterpiece or anything but it was really enjoyable to read.

One of the characters especially was badass. The first big villain that shows up as well as the first mentor that shows up. Both of these characters carry such an enormous presence it was amazing.

Sadly though this manga was axed and with no closure whatsoever. The series basically ends with the adventure starts NOW. but it doesn;t.

TLDR: Quite sad. Good start wanted to see more but axe stopped any chance of that happening. Sadly i have to rate manga based on entire series and despite the axe, since this is such a short read i think it'll be a comfortable time killer if nothing else. 6/10

Lost potential

A decent story (so far at least), an interesting setting, some decent and some good characters, nice art and good flow of the fights.
This Manga had all of that yet got cancelled, we get 20+ volumes of crappy generic shonnen crap instead from our precious Japanese publishers, such pity.
I'd love to see more of this manga, thou I know I wont, the mangaka turned to love-comes and was pretty successful with nisekoi so I don't see him coming back this way.

Disappointed

The concept had so much potential and it was cut like that. The story was going in a good way into a proper development, didn't feel stale at any time and when the characters started to improve themselves (in many ways)... AXE. It makes me sad to add another story with great potential to the "will never come to a proper end list".

Definitely the ones who brought down such potential should have their fingers cut and eyes gouged out. Worse crap is out there and they stay popular but, at the end I cant bring myself to blame the publishers, if their clients want crap, they have to provide crap and the best example is... that the author that made this manga is the author of Nisekoi.

It's absolutely criminal that Jump cut this one short. The editorial board should've been flogged through the streets for their gross stupidity.
But Jump has always been stupid in that regard, it comes from paying far too much attention to postcard polling. Jump has awesome new manga scouting skills, but atrocious management of the same.

While not exactly fulfilling the ending seemed to answer the big questions, and it was a really good story to read while it laster... this and another story I read about aa dude being forced to dress as a chick and go to a demon school make me think publishers/editors have horrible taste... I've seen absolute crap series drag out for 30 volumes, meanwhile gems like this are cancelled..... it was a great loss but no reason to downgrade the rating, 10/10.

So Much Potential

Rating: 9.4 / 10.0
was shown within the first chapters, but the idiots at Shueisha (or the readers in Japan) were too stupid to recognize how great this could've become. Read it even with the axed ending, read it even though it's only 23 chapters long. Komi-sensei is an amazing mangaka that has so much talent yet unnoticed. It was a sad day when Double arts was cut from SJ.

this story had soooo much potential and it was a shame that they dropped it so early.
even though it was dropped, the author was able to connect the dots fairly well and i found the ending enjoyable but a bit lacking still
the plotline is very shounen but there is some subtle romantic twinges that made me smile
the characters were well developed and the artwork fit my tastes very well

anyway, i recommend it highly! please enjoy

It had potential...

This never really had a chance to go anywhere... It has the typical mystery group, and unexplainable phenomena. It's unfortunate the manga had to end so abruptly, but I'm glad the mangaka left it open-ended instead of trying to force a quick ending.
I'd recommend this, unless you can't take never knowing what happened.

a shame it got ended

knowing the reasons the last chapter (or the last 2) has to be ignored, the story ends where it got truncated
the chapters we actually have are only an introduction to the main story, at least even with it getting truncated, it got truncated a little after the end of the main introduction

the story was really entertaining, any chapter was no useless, and even if it lasted only 21 chapters (i ignore the last screwed ones) it feels like it was a lot more long
the comedy was also great :3 the way the 2-protagonists react to each others and with other characters was so funny :3

even if this will not restart (which sadly is likely) it will remain for me a great manga, a great story biggrin

note: the only odd thing i noticed, is that the main villan and supporter (zere and fallan) look like ripped of org13 of kingdom hearth(only the design, nothing like the personality)... this may be one of the reasons jap folks didn't appreciated this much? :/

Sadly unfulfilling  
by Aetheus

Rating: 7.0 / 10.0
Coulda been a great manga. As it stands, the most I can give it is a 7. While I respect that the mangaka tried to give his series closure, perhaps it would have been best not to have even tried to give it an ending at all. Sure, the "ending" seemed open ended, which helps if the mangaka is ever given a chance to continue it, but it was also unfulfilling and mind-screw inducing. That "non existent disease" tag above takes a double meaning (no pun intended) in my head and makes me all the more paranoid about the ending.
