An unreadable disgrace for comic fans

The Gonzo anime (4/10) is boring but borderline watchable but i still couldn´t bother to finish. This "side story" though is complete and utter crap in both art and storytelling and the colored US version manages to be a tiny bit worse than the manga as the it looks ugly as sin so avoid this manga and Akita Shoten in general. What is up with the lack of an ending too. Was the creative team to bored to go on and i deducted one point do to that final blunder. Read Ron Marz´s highly acclaimed Witchblade run instead or The Darkness by Garth Ennis. Batman: Death Mask (7,5/10) further proves that manga adaptations of comics don´t have to suck so read it instead.

It could be better,but it feels more like a generic forced mixture of Japanese cliche rather than an attempt of making a good alternative story.As @Aikanaro said,you cannot bring yourself to care about the main characters,probably because they are underdeveloped.The ending was also sad but it brings hope that things will return to how they were.
A comment about the art:When Takeru transforms you feel like the manga worth your time.But when she is in her normal human form both her and the main protagonist don't feel too well colored at times.

I read 2 chapters then got bored and skipped to the end to ruin the story for me so ill never think of this manga again. Im not saying its a bad manga but ive read to many manga just like this one and there just isnt anything special about it.
Oh the end is kinda sad

Lost in blandness. There are some things that I really liked but those things weren't what the story was about and were pretty much entirely incidental. Couldn't bring myself to care about the main characters. Even though the themes in it and the subject matter are things than I'm generally strongly inclined towards it just seemed lacking something.

It's nothing really special (seen the concept before) but it wasn't bad at all. But one thing i didn't like is how it felt more like an American comic than a manga and the characters felt a little generic and cliched.

Nice art, seen before plotline, bloody violence and in full color.
