I really like this book. It is a great all around story, the art is amazing, the story is very engaging, the character is being developed beautifully, and the quality of the book itself is excellent. I'm about half way through it right now, and the overall story is just excellent. There are a few chapters here and there that aren't full of much content, almost filler chapters, but still the overall story is moving along at a good pace.
The author is extremely talented. He's done a great job of keeping you unsure about how to feel about the main character exactly, which really adds an element of realness to it. You can see various plots developing, and other loose strings which I hope to see tied up later in the series. Just a lot of open doors which I assume we will walk through as the story progresses, and I'm very much looking forward to that.
So far, half way through this book, I HIGHLY recommend it.

The best art I have ever seen and the color pages are honestly worth the price of the book by themselves. Great story, amazing characters, and bloody action make this manga worth getting.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
