Unconventional author/artist Hiroyuki Takei began his career by winning the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize (named after the famous artist of the same name). After working as an assistant to famed artist Nobuhiro Watsuki, Takei debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1997 with Butsu Zone, an action series based on Buddhist mythology. His multicultural adventure manga Shaman King, which debuted in 1998, became a hit and was adapted into an anime TV series. His new series Ultimo (Karakuri Dôji Ultimo) is currently being serialized in the U.S. in SHONEN JUMP. Takei lists Osamu Tezuka, American comics and robot anime among his many influences.

I absolutely love this series, particularly this book. My favorite characters are Ren Tao (on the cover) and Hao-can't-say-his-last-name-because-it-will-ruin-it. GO REN! This series is not like those little baby series. Sure it's short, but not like one of those baby series where everything's baby talk and sugar coated and has no plot at all. If you like Naruto, D-Gray Man, or Death Note, you'll probably like this series, too.
