Description
From Wikipedia:

An innocent young man, Ikuroo, has a parasite known as Baoh implanted in his brain by an evil organization, Doress. The parasite makes him nearly immortal and gives him the ability to transform into a really powerful beastie when he's in trouble.

Doress intends to use him in some sort of ploy for world domination. But while they're moving him around, a young psychic girl, Sumire (who's also being held by the organization), sets him free, and the two escape together. Of course, Dr. Kasuminome is the mad scientist behind the whole thing, and he isn't about to let his test subject get away... and he has everything from superpowered lackeys to a small army at his disposal.

That was...pretty awful, to say the least. I almost can't believe this is by one of my favourite supernatural action shounen mangaka, even if it were one of his first projects.

The plot is dumb, the fights are cliché, ludicrous, and not even remotely exciting, the good guys are dull as ditchwater, the bad guys are mind-numbing caricatures of evil, the romance came out of left field and was more baffling than anything... The list continues. And since this is Araki Hirohiko we're talking about, you can't even distract yourself with the art, be it in action scenes or otherwise.

Not recommended: neither to fans of Jojo no Kimyou na Bouken, nor to anyone else.

no comments and such a low rating? maybe i just have a soft spot for this manga and anime and seriously hope that one day it might get looked at for a movie script treatment. the artwork in the manga isnt the best,but with how closely if not exactly the anime follows it makes for a great visual translation into animation.
