Meteor Methuselah  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Rain Jewlitt, known as the Methuselah, is a spaced-out, immortal, 624-year-old man dressed in priest's clothes. He's got eternal youth and a large price on his head—put there by those questing after the secret of his immortality.

Machika Balfaltin is a tomboyish, energetic 14-year-old girl who, upon the death of her grandfather, sets out to kill Methuselah, the one bounty her assassin grandfather, Zol the Grim Reaper, couldn't kill. Instead, however, Machika ends up being saved by Rain again and again from other aspiring bounty hunters attacking them both.

Sound like the beginnings of an odd relationship? You won't believe where their journey takes them...

I also thought that it wouldn't be so good before i started to read it. But now I know better! This manga is one of my favourites. I love every minute of it. If it doesn't come out here, I will definitely buy it! Maybe I'll buy it just so that I have it in my bookshelf, so that I can read it over and over again. ^_^

can I cry?

Like I said, can I cry?

Well, this is.. so far.. manga that can create tear in my eyes. I couldn't stop feeling sorrow and sadness when Rain started to recall back his memories 600 - ago. It was so heart breaking and to think he can still smile all the way in his 624 Years Old. ( I recommend to listen to Close Your Eyes song while reading this manga). Seems like he smile all the way long but keep the sadness in his heart. How heartbreaking is that?

On happy side, Rain is sooo eye catching and worthy to drool. He has everything and whole perfect package for you to dream about him every night. I couldn't stop laughing when there's time he make silly big grin and stupid things. He seem's childish but on the same time someone you can relied on. How sweet is he?

For the author, I praised Ozaki Sensei. I don't know that female mangaka can create something "shounen" like but have shoujo element in it. The art was perfectly neat, the storyline get along well and also the way Ozaki Sensei expressed everything in this manga.

The reason this manga got 10/10 ( i shud give 10.5 grrr.. ) is :-
1. The art <-- coz' I care about it sooo much before start reading the manga
2. perfectly character development and expressions
3. the storyline and plot goes well and the manga genre know where to show up it's not something show up any time
4. the atmosphere. Read it. Then you know what I'm talking about.
(special reason )5. that can create tear in my eyes? Nuff said.

And, I couldn't help it. I love "PURE ROMANCE" type of manga

I really like the art in this one. Also, the fact that there's a human element to it all makes the story even better than most mangas out there. Following your heart doesn't always get you what you want here, and yet they do it anyways. I love it. The relationship between Rain and the others is played out well, I think. Distinct emotions put into actions and words unspoken go a long way in this one. Overall I give it a 10!

Never kill the bad guy   
Rating: 3.0 / 10.0

So, in reading this manga, you should know a couple things. First, the good guys are always attacked, and when they fight back, they never kill the bad guy. It doesn't matter what horrible things they've done, it doesn't matter how many people they've killed. Good guys can't kill the bad guys. Just because it would mean they would save lots of lives, doesn't mean they should actually take the life of someone bad. If you understand this, then you understand Immortal Rain.

Theres a lot of other stuff to the story. The romance between Machika and Rain. The relationships between the other characters as well. I give the story points for that. But what it really comes down to is, bad guys doing bad things, and no one stopping them.

definitely one of the best manga i've read. it's a good mix of shoujo and shounen, but the romance probably makes girls a bigger target. fast-paced, great plot and art, and wonderful character development (aka yay romance between rain and machika!). what's not to love? (besides the fact that we're all dying to read volume 9 TT___TT) seriously, go read it. now. bigrazz

They're human. They've got human qualities. And its great to see a author achieve this. He may not be human, but he is more human than any other being in the world. I love Rain. I love this manga. By far one of my favorite.

great story

a great action/adventure story with a fast-paced plot and a wonderful array of lovable characters. And it's not all humor and fighting-there were a few scenes that tugged at my heart too. The art style is very shounen-like but great at expressing the characters' feelings. The girl is kickass but I wish she would stop calling out Rain's name so much- recalls bad memories of Fushigi Yuugi- where Miaka would be shouting Tamahome's name all the time.

The art is cute, clean and beautiful. Furthermore, the story makes sense. I actually can imagine how Yuca felt, why he said, to him, life or world was all dreams to no end, what made him suffer to the point he wanted to destroy all. Ozaki Kaori is definitely a great story teller.
