In the future, an energy source called "Life" has become incredibly important. Certain people are able to synchronize with devices called "Sai" which gives them the ability to extract "Life" and have super powers. These people are known as "Sai Takers." Within the "Sai Takers" there is an even smaller group, "Original Takers." "Original Takers" have a contract with a magical device, and they can manipulate "Life" without the use of a "Sai." These powerful people are also immortal, and they only die if they run out of "Life." The world admires "Sai Takers," but "Original Takers" are careful to keep their identities secret.

Nanase Kyouya is an ordinary teenage boy, who moved in with the girls Igarashi Kyouka and Yuma after the death of his parents. Yuma is a "Sai Taker," but Kyouka is an "Original Taker." One day, he goes with them to see a new model under testing of a magical device, based after Kyouka's. After a deadly terrorist attack, Kyouka desperately contracts Kyouya to the new device model to save his life. The device has some side effects, however, one of which is that it transforms Kyouya into a girl! Now Kyouya is secretly an "Original Taker", and he must go to the elite "Sai Taker" school, as a girl, with Yuma. Will he be able to keep enough "Life" to stay alive? Will he be able to navigate his life as a girl? What other side effects of this device lie in wait for him?

Seriously Im Dal Young, WHAT!? You're starting a new series despite the fact that you have so many other series that are dead in the water due to your lack of chapter output? Finish off your older manhwa for heaven's sake. Mark my words potential readers, this series is going to last about 3 volumes if not less before stalling/entering hiatus like many of his other works. I've given up on reading anything this man writes because they ALL end in CRITICAL MASS DISAPPOINTMENT. If you cherish your time as well as your love of graphic novels, don't read this. It'll only take a chunk of your soul without any good return.

As much as I love Im Dal Young's work, Unbalance X2 being one of my favorite manga/manhwa, I have to question whether this was a good idea. He currently has Re:Birth, Onihime VS, Legend of Maian, Freezing, Phantom King, Aflame Inferno, Koimoku, and Kurokami (forgive me if I missed one but... there's a lot) all going at the same time. I really do like his work but he definitely needs to finish some of his ongoing series. Freezing is the only one that gets an even remotely steady stream of updates. As far as I'm concerned Phantom King and Onihime VS got so little attention at the start and still have so little support that there pretty much dead in the water, but Legend of Maian, Aflame Inferno, and Kurokami can still be wrapped up and considered good manga. The biggest problem is Re:Birth, the prequel to this newly released manga. The concept of releasing Sai:Taker while Re:Birth is still ongoing is intriguing and allows for a better understanding of the manga's "universe" but that doesn't work when you can't update either of them because you're playing catch up with your 6 year-old manga you failed to keep updated. As much of a rant as i just went on, the first couple chapters of this manga have been good and I do like the tie in with Re:Birth.

And I can't be the only one who wants a follow-up to Unbalance X2 biggrin

The manga is interesting and I will always enjoy this guys artwork so I'll keep reading for that alone. I just wish this guy would finish something before starting a new one. He's lucky I don't read many manga that's for sure, it also helps that I have a pantyhose tights fetish and will continue to read for that alone, but the story is good and is funny I'll give it that.

Pretty good series

This series has been pretty great so far, with a great art style and humorous moments here and there. And, yes, the author does start many projects at the same time, but they're still usually pretty good.

Normally, it'd be too early to judge the series to give it a ten, but I'll make an exception this time to keep OolonColluphid happy.

PS. Are there even any truly original series anymore? One can claim that shoujo high school manga/anime rip off one another, or that zombie/horror movies rip off other zombie/horror movies, due to having similar elements, even though they have different tones and storylines. Bleach itself started off as a "ripoff" of Yu Yu Hakusho, before evolving into what it is today. And Unbalance x2 rips off Onegai Teacher? Seriously, one has shounen sci-fi elements (and "standstills), while the other is a seinen (which, incidentally, is aimed at a male audience over 18) with bare comedic elements. Haters gonna hate, but trying to draw similarities between various manga/anime without even reading the subject material (which explains why the parallels drawn seem longshots) is just sad.

i really like this as the sequel to lunatic taker and i agree that he definitely has a lot on his plate as far as the insane amount of manwha's he has but i disagree with people calling him a "talentless hack" since you take the time to actually "read" his work you shouldn't be dissing his work just cause "you" don't like it or "you" have a problem with him doing so much at once it's very offensive and you're just pushing your own thoughts on ppl when u say "don't read this..... soul without any good return"

...but the main reason I'm neither reading nor rating this is because of the Description. It gives background on how things work, but isn't a good blurb for the plot. TIA to anyone who can fix this!

Cliche after cliche. If you're after mindless fanservice, I guess this might have something to offer you, but if you're looking for something beyond a bunch of cute girls buried in a pile of generic stereotypes, I'd suggest looking elsewhere.
