Zetman

Has anyone read any of this manga? Can they give a summary of what its about and if its any good/worth reading? It looks like a superhero manga but the style looks Western. Any info would be great. Thanks.

It's a great series, you should read it. Everybody should read it.
The art is very japanese and the story is very japanese, only the main theme is western style. It's ongoing, serialized in Young Jump and 3 volumes thus far.

So can you give a outline of the story? It looks like a Eastern Wolverine to me?

I read a random chapter(chap 46-48) and it seemed good, but it looks like it didn't have the same main char. Just wanna know is it worth going through all the previous chapters and future chapters or should i stay away?

Basically it has two protagonists.

A dark hero who is a mutant created to wipe out mutants, and an ordinary guy who dreams to be hero of justice and is thrust to that world, with gadgets and whiz nerd buddies helping.

Linking the two are their families. The older generation making a mistake that this generation has to clean up. And the girl who is the dark hero's childhood friend and the hero of justice's little sister.

Thanks for the info . Sounds interesting enough, and I need something mature since I caught up to Akumetsu.

Hate to sound perverted, but I love that in my manga. That concept makes manga more interesting to me. Consensual in mature manga is so boring unless its in the form of a person being used.

there is nothing perverted about it.
it just fits with the theme of the story.

like Redwolf said, the older generation made a huge mistake in the past and younger generation is left to clean it up for them.

there is also a chance for a love triangle in the later part, although going with the theme of the story it probably won't end well.

I just finished reading up to chapter 104, and I am going to say I really like it. The characters are understandable and the twist are awesome.

They are foils of each other to say.

Spoiler for Read the story first, before opening this:

LOL! Yeah I'm waiting for both to finish...I checked out Wolf Guy - Wolfen Crest.

Pretty sick. Instead of Vamps you got Werewolves. And the art is pretty sick.

Yeah this manga is really good. I hope the scanlators accelerate its releases. Its a weekly manga but it isn't scanlated on that pace. Only 111 chapters are out in English and in Japan 160. Huge difference

Such a good manga and it is getting released in japan almost weekly but not in that pace in English which disappoints me and i think all the Zetman fans

I am a fan of this manga and there are various reasons for it like the faces are so realistic and expressions are so natural that you can easily understand what the character is thinking and you feel what he is feeling.Great story, Incredible story telling, presentation and superb characters.



I can not understand why it is not so popular. May be it is just a bad luck and hats off to the mangaka who has continuously made nice mangas and for me Zetman is his best work. If you like seinen then you should check it once, it may become your favorite

Well ever since Kouga got his armor I see a comparison to Kamen Rider Agito. Two of the heroes are evolved humans and the third just a human in armor.

Though you wonder what events will lead up to the very first chapter.
