From Viz:
It is the middle of the 21st century and Tokyo is expanding more and more, filling Tokyo Bay with landfill to make room for the bursting population. But suddenly Tokyo suffers one of its greatest earthquakes, and the landfill liquefies, creating untold damage in the newly-made urban area. The members of Self-Defense Force Rescue Squad Four are sent to help. But what they dig up is a plot of murder and destruction--one that wipes out nearly the entire squad and leaves its two surviving members, the fierce Rei and her cool, handsome partner Uozumi, in a fight for their lives.

There is only one place where they can find the work that keeps them alive, and the support so they can start uncovering the mystery that killed their squad: that's in the south-Shinjuku bar called Chicago. As the earthquake levels Japan's largest city and capital and leaves countless dead, rescue workers, Rei and Uozumi, search for survivors amidst the rubble of Bay District D only to find a mysterious string of dead bodies--bodies with bullet holes. Without warning, the pair is under fire from the air as a hail of gunfire rains down. Are these the killers, and if so, what is their purpose? Barely escaping with their lives, Rei and Uozumi discover that their squad is listed only as "collateral damage" and their records wiped clean.

It's ok, but should have been longer.

I was excited to try this series out being a fan of Yumi Tamura's Basara and 7 seeds. Unfortunately this doesn't live up to those two, it was still an interesting read with a really strong female lead character. Sadly it seems that it's short run left it feeling rushed and forced around the end. We got to know more about Rei but her male co-leads are left open and become rather flat shoujo male characters. I felt like it should have definitely been expanded beyond two volumes, although if it did we would probably not have been given 7 seeds.

Shame we don't know much about the Shadow or whatever happened to the group after the bombing of Chicago

I hate open-ended endings
so this one was just okay for me, but it definitely had a lot of potential beyond 2 volumes.

... thrilling manga by Tamura Yumi. I love the characters and the plot - they're full of potential. As always, it's mysterious, instantly gripping and well-drawn. I love the flashbacks and time-skips, and how the whole story unfolds bit by bit, always leaving more questions than answers, and how slowly the fragments start to form a shape, which is usually a surprising twist from what you had expected. My only pet peeve is that the main characters look similiar to some of the other characters in other mangaka's stories.
So, it's been 12 years since it was first published. Maybe just the right time to start the continuation? There can be so much more to this story, it's like crying to get picked up.

You get the main - a girl which fights with the evils of society because of her traumatic childhood. Throughout the story we get to know her love interest and the past she's dealing with, but no clue about the supporting leads.
The story was filled with unassociated threads and didn't make any sense even after the ending.

i like this manga a lot. the plot is very interesting not to mention the characters as well. i really like Rei, she's tough not to mention beautiful and i personally like Shin as well. their relationship is very interesting. i'm giving this a 9 only because i'm not satisfied with the ending. there are holes in the story that needs to be filled out. i hope that there would be a sequel for this. overall, i recommend this manga.

This is probably my favorite work by Yumi Tamura. I like it even better than Basara. The artwork is great and the plot is very interesting. I highly recommend this. If only the releases would come out faster....

Oh man. Another awesome manga created by the ever so great mangaka Yumi Tamura. Very intricate artwork. Great Storyline. And you'll have to fall in love with the characters. I just can't wait till the next volume comes out.
