One of the top-selling manga in Japan today, with the first four volumes having sold more than 2,300,000 units since March 2013, now hits North American shores. AJIN combines super-natural themes with sci-fi action for a very modern high-paced yarn that should compete with most popular current manga and comic titles.
For his ultimate "wave" Sato has taken on Iruma Base, the hardest of hard targets, while the Prime Minister is onsite. The unexpected grit of Japanís Self-Defense Forces delights him to no end. Having fallen out with his right-hand man Tanaka, however, may come back to bite the jolly ex-marine.
