Overview

In the not too distant future, mankind fights over relics from an ancient civilization called O-Parts, each of which contain incredible powers. Some people with special abilities are able to use the O-Parts to their full potential, and are known as O.P.T.s (or O-Parts Tacticians). Naturally, O-Parts can be used for both good and evil purposes.

Jio is a young boy with a tragic past who only trusts one thing in the world: money. Little does he suspect that he is actually a very powerful O.P.T.s, and inside him sleeps a demon of incredible ferocity. He meets up with a girl named Ruby who, like her famous father before her, wants to become a treasure hunter. Though Jio doesn't believe in friendship, he agrees to be Ruby's bodyguard, and together they go on a dangerous quest to discover as many O-Parts as they can.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Kishimoto is the younger twin brother of Naruto creator Masashi, so this humorous, surprisingly moving shonen treat is sure to be compared to that manga blockbuster. Luckily, it's enjoyable on its own terms. With his half-white and half-black hair and his one dark and one light eye, hero Jio is the perfect embodiment of conflicted youth: despised by everyone he's ever come into contact with, he's both defiant and fragile and more sinisterly powerful than he knows. As Jio quests for treasure-the O-Parts of the title-what sets this book apart is the strong emotional resonance, even while surrounded by a tone light enough to go down easy. Kishimoto's artwork is, like his writing, good-natured, concise and expressive (if also somewhat reminiscent of his brother's). Action scenes are a marvel of clarity, and Kishimoto wrings some psychological nuance from well-placed flashbacks. Best of all, this first volume is in and of itself a fully satisfying read. Instead of relying on cliff-hangers to get you to buy another book, Kishimoto depends on another, more difficult-to-achieve effect-generating real concern for Jio and his friends, regardless of what comes next. (Dec.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    True Title

    Great story line and I highly suggest. I am still shocked that the actual title is 666 Satan and only called O Parts Hunter in America.

    Title

    This manga is really good and easy to love if you like the manga Naruto. The real name is 666 Satan but America has to go and change the name...well I wouldn't blame them seeing as the title would be a 'no-go' with parentals. But I suggest it because it is good and just gets better as it goes along. = D
