ah, don't mind the title. i'm just very happy to see this manga again.
the characters, instead being only mysterious and dark, are also unique and unusual.
seriously, how many protagonist out there which is similar to Togusa?
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
looking meek and harmless but has a very dark past and even......... hated humanity before.

that's very few, mind you. not to mention what happen to Seri and others.
about the artwork, it's nothing great but it has a very nice and neat feeling. and the angle, i like it so much. it builds the action to be very good and not boring.
and the atmosphere, even this manga is dark enough, the jokes are good enough so the readers won't get bored. at least to me, it's like that.
the last is... the history which is slipped to this manga. i was very surprised to know that every cyborg here is named to a katana.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
i just realized Kogarasumaru is a name of a katana. lol.

it gives me more knowledge about katana. i like it.

This manga has a really unique artwork. The plot is interesting and unique, whereby it does not just focus on one character. The characters are lovable and share a deep friendship. At first I was fooled by the short description, but upon trying out the first chapter, the first few pages caught my attention, and I can't help hoping for more. A great manga worth trying out!

I think this series has a lot of potential. It starts off pretty easy going--doesn't get right into the thick of the plot and lets the reader get used to the world and situation these characters are in and we get to explore their personality a bit before it gets too heavy. The plot may seem a little typical at first, but the character design and their mysterious pasts are just intriguing enough to keep me looking forward to each new chapter. I think I would buy this one, if it continues to be interesting in the next few, and if it ever reaches the US.

OK. First of all, a very vague spoiler about chapter 4:
Spoiler (highlight to view)
it ends in a cliffhanger! I'm glad Maigo Scans left in the teaser for the next book. Wait a minnit, I guess since this is an action manga you might think it's an action spoiler. Only sort of, compared to the other sequences. But I wanna know more about her and now I gotta waaaaait!


Enough of my spoiled spoilerish ramblings. For a first tank, or even a fifth, well done. The tech designs are universe-internally consistent by and large, although the "katana" designs must include some very busy nanobots. Well, I suppose to be effective nanobots would have to be.

Anyway, good character history and plot telegraphing without making it obvious beforehand but giving you just a little of that "Ohhh!" feeling in retrospect. Plus, a couple of the early fights give you a really good feel for the level of the action without being boring. The
Spoiler (highlight to view)
fight during the meeting
could have been especially boring given
Spoiler (highlight to view)
its length,
but the cut-aways and chapter ending made it one of my favorites.

There's a depth of potential hidden in the central character's background and the constraints he faces in society. I am glad to see the series made it to volume 3, and I hope the series lives up to its promise. I'll be eagerly waiting and making sure I get to keep the rating at:
