Akumetsu

I wonder why this extremely attractive title has NO coverage on this forum ?

Anyway, Akumetsu.



Nagasawa Shiina was just your average 3rd year high schooler when her parents’ company went bankrupt. In order to pay the bills, her family sells her into prostitution. At her first job, a mysterious masked man crashes the party…and its someone she knows… Akumetsu is the story of Hazama Shou, who defends his own view of justice in a vigilante manner while wearing a mask and calling himself Akumetsu, or “evil destroyer.” (Taken from AT-T page.)

Basically what we have here is an anti-hero with the kind of aspirations Yagami Light would approve, that chose the way to "cure" Japan from the cancer of corrupt politicians and fat useless bankers. Except if Light-kun used his clean little notebook - Akumetsu uses more impressive methods, such as an axe in the head, shooting off fingers one-by-one, and pushing people off the roofs. All the while having dozens of witnesses.

One would ask why he wasnt captured yet ? Simple trick, really. After every "justice act" he blows up his own head. Thats it, case closed. Except he comes back again and again.

The ending sucks though. It's fun, but repetitive so there isn't much to discuss about next to how he pulls it off. =o

I dont think 99,9% of us will see the ending in our lifetimes, so its okay.

True, it IS, in a sense, repetitive. Nothing really changes as to how or why he kills. But saying its repetitive is like saying Batman going after the Joker is repetitive; same concepts, different implementation.

I finally got up to chapter 30 today, and it was cool how he would kill, then get rid of his "evidence". I suppose, for me, I had expected to be some legitimate reason for
Spoiler for chap 25:

They need to make an anime out of this show.

Or maybe even a live drama series...

The manga (halfway) reminds me too much of Metal Gear. XP

Metal Gear? Seriously...

Are their mechs in it? Crazy Ninja cyborgs with swords? An old man who can't roll on the ground and gets me a game over because he breaks his back?

True that. Although I do wish they brought in Snake to take care of this problem...

Now that would be an epic fight.

Weed, there is nothing wrong with it.. Seriously what's so bad about it? Smoking weed and eating out your fridge and laughing at the simple things? Or getting in fights and causing injury and accidents. Beer is the destruction of this nation, Herb is the healer! Don't listen, make your own choices!
