Ikagawa Tokage is a boy with a superpower. He has the the ability to change the color of his eyes whenever he closes and reopens the eyes. Kinda useless, right? Regardless, Ikagawa Tokage strives to strengthen his power in an effort to become the strongest and not have his power be nothing more than an arrow to the knee. With that desire in mind, he trains daily in an abandoned building in modern day Tokyo. But on one such day, he comes to what looks to be a scene of a crime and feels the culprit might still be nearby. Will he make it out of the abandoned building with a broken knee? Is there more to his power than meets the eye?

Need the light novel   
Rating: N/A

currently has over 1k people who voted yes on wanting it translated on the baka-tsuki forums so i guess it's at least hopeful someone will pick it up.... got to say that ending did exactly what the author intended and left me absolutely craving more, unfortunately being unable to read japanese i can't access the actual story at this time x.x

as a standalone the story is still interesting and quite a ride, but if you cant read japanese be prepared to be absolutely devastated that the rest of the story isnt in english yet. honestly i'd suggest putting this on hold until the Light Novel translation gets started into, but as soon as that takes off this thing is a definite must read if you can handle the violence and mind f's

Downfall of this manga: Monthly publication

There's no way a story like this (adapted from a light novel) where no chapters are self contained (like To-love-ru darkness) can survive in a magazine where people read once per month. Every chapter spends 5 pages on recap with every chapter being ~20 pages is just not feasible. The fact that the "prologue" required 15 chapters is enough for me if I were an executive to know this isn't going to work.

Cancel it, move on.

the ending is a bitch! i hope they decide to manganized the whole novel, since the story is pretty darn interesting. the best thing about this manga is the characters. i love the rich bitch, i mean, i'm friggin' bored of the childhood sweetheart that will do anything for her beloved, now here is a full-blown yandere who will do anything to 'own' what she wants. and the mc is awesome. he's weak but he relizes it and don't whine too much, he have delusion of grandeur but it because he strived to be better than he is. this is just a looooong prologue, so i'm just crossing my fingers some mangaka decide to take this up again....

the author puts in alot of twists in this work, but to be honest they just put me off greatly.

The MC is also incredibly pathetic and badass at the same time. I have mix emotions when reading this series, and not sure how I should rate this until at least the next volume

It has potential

It is new(to me anyways) to find a manga about a guy with a pretty useless power and still make it interesting enough to make me want to read on. he only con i have with it is that it is sort of confusing to follow. After they explain the real order in which everything happens though it makes sense. Also the first few chapters threw me off thinking that this was going to be something completely different and more characters you originally meet were going to survive. Overall it has some great potential.

Pretty interesting so far

Three chapters in, and it has been pretty interesting. The artwork is pretty similar to Buriki's style, so visually it's a wonderful treat. The premise is ladled with mystery so far(3 chaps) and there's a lot that happens that compels you to continue reading. Heck, the first few pages, there is a flashback scene, and even though it isn't anything special, I found it so absolutely adorable, I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. Little did I realize that there was something more sinister afoot. Definitely will keep reading this to see what the mystery of this story is all about =03.

pretty interesting,at first glance when found this manga i immediately know this will be interesting and i'm glad that's true
the main character special ability is pretty unique as unlike most rest unique power in other series this ability apparently look just useless only to change your eyes
i heard this manga light novel made by the same author whom done Denpa Onna,so maybe there possibility this interesting manga will get anime adaptation

The fact is that the story doesn't go anywhere because it really is just a prologue. This means that the whole story is basically just watching a most vile bitch get away with being just that. If you come to it as a horror movie, it'll be like SAW.

The main character himself is fine, he's really aware of himself and the situation he gets put in. His power truely is useless and he does try to be a good person which results in catastrophic damage on his body.

Basically cold hearted evil wins in this manga. This basically just works as an ad for the light novels, which aren't even listed on Updates. The brutality, and helplessness are this manga's good points. Messing with the sequence of events order doesn't add anything(and just requires an explanation). And the fact it's not resolved is frustrating.

The powers are pretty low end, the kid's might be the most useless but the other ones are basically make someone's head turn. Weak psychokinesis(more like just pulling) that can only be used four times, and being able to jump off the air are the high level ones. It's somewhat interesting but I don't see how they would gain as much as they seem to, since even basic weapons would be enough.

Started Good but MEH

The manga started good but soon it went downhill. At the start i gave it a 10 but now its a 6, each chapter things became more and more confused without a proper explanation until you dont get wtf is happening anymore and then it ended?. In conclusion, i give it a 10 in art, 7 in idea/plot, but a 2 in development, it pales in comparasion to the novel.
Even if its the Looooooooong prologue, it was way to much, they could have done a much better work adapting the novel to the manga. Im dissapointed
