I was browsing the manga section on my nook color, amd I discovered that the had put Jormungand on here! I had seen the whole anime series, so I was very excited! This series is about an arms dealer named koko and her team that she keeps with her. Jonah, a child soldier is one of the more focused on characters. I really enjoy this series, and I rexommend you get it. The art may seem a little messy, but I thought it was great! So if you're looking for something that's a little different then mainstream battle manga, I recommend Jormungand! :D
