Overview

Takagi Fujimaru may seem like a regular high school student, but behind the cheery facade lies a genius hacker by the name of Falcon. When his father is framed for a murder, Falcon uses his brilliant hacking skills to try and protect his sister and clear his father's name. However, he finds that his father, an agent in an elite government agency, was involved with something far more complex than a simple murder. A terrorist group is plotting against the city of Tokyo and it is up to Falcon, with the help of his friends to unravel the twisted plans set in place to kill millions of people.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—Takagi Fujimaru is a high school student with a secret double life as the Falcon, an infamous hacker who is known for exposing injustice. After Falcon outs a teacher who has been sexually harassing students, the man is replaced by a young, charming, and attractive woman who may not be all she purports to be. She takes a special interest in Fujimaru—does she know more than she's letting on? Meanwhile, Japan's secret intelligence department has retrieved a file from a deceased operative that has information about a virus that a terrorist organization plans to release on the public. The Falcon is enlisted to help, but doing so will put him, his family, and his friends in danger. This first volume starts strong and fast, and does a fine job of introducing the characters and their personalities without slowing down the plot. There is drama, emotion, and humor—though the humor falls a little too heavily on the risqué side in a way that doesn't fit in with the story. There are plenty of underwear and breast jokes to keep the attention of male readers, but they run the risk of putting off girls, which is a shame because the story lends itself to a wide audience. Nevertheless, Bloody Monday shows lots of promise, and with only four volumes out since February, it gives librarians an opportunity to invest in a new series that's sure to be popular.—Jason M.
