Tokage no Ou

Tokage no Ou
トカゲの王
Spoiler:

-Based on the light novel of the same name written by Hitoma Iruma(Lying Mii-kun & Broken Maa-chan, Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko) and illustrated by Buriki(Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko), published under Dengeki Bunko label.
-Artist: Shiki Kamizuki
-Serialized in: Dengeki Maoh


Summary by Deus-Ex Scans and Vexed-Scans:
Ikagawa Tokage is a boy with a superpower. He has the the ability to change the color of his eyes whenever he closes and reopens the eyes. Kinda useless, right? Regardless, Ikagawa Tokage strives to strengthen his power in an effort to become the strongest and not have his power be nothing more than a parlor trick. With that desire in mind, he trains daily in an abandoned building in modern day Tokyo. But on one such day, he comes to what looks to be a scene of a crime and feels the culprit might still be nearby. Will he make it out of the abandoned building alive? Is there more to his power than meets the eye?


Interesting read so far. I want to see more of him using his power to trick and deceive his opponent in order to get out of tough situations.

The prologue is so ridiculously long that I decided to just ditch the series to spite it.

A verryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy long prologue

Though I like it. Heterochromia is one of my favorite subject I find it fascinating.

A long prologue indeed. But the fact that I have NO idea what the hell is going on + a Buriki-like art style makes it all the more interesting. And you have to admit, that Tokage/Sugamo flashback at the very beginning was so adorable, it's something to look forward to X03.

You know, a very long prologue spanning multiple pages are kind of terrible.

They don't do it like Tora Kiss, with the first chapter having over 100 pages.

I won't mind if the first chapter covers the whole so-called veryyyyyyyyyy long prologue, but it doesn't.

While it's true that there are lot of things need to be explained first in prologue, this won't do.

Sugamo is quite the character... in more ways than one.

I have a feeling there really is nothing more to Tokage's power than just changing his eye color, and he just ends up using it for some clever psychological deception.

Also, I had no idea the writer of Mii-kun was also writer of Denpa Onna.

Yeah, she is a great kuudere type right now. The flashback made her out to be as cute & adorable as I thought she would =03. I don't know how she got into that swimsuit though. Perhaps she changed her gear in anticipation for meeting Tokage?

I hope that is the case with his eye power. I find that chars w/no powers(i.e. wits) against superpowered enemies usually make for an interesting story in a series that depicts action. Esp a guy like Tokage. His personality would probably start sucking fast if he got some super-haxed power, even if it'd take him a long time to use it properly.

Tokage has a remarkably realistic personality. Which is to say he's a cowardly douche who used a wounded man as a human shield.

Hopefully he manages to get better, or I'm gonna lose interest fast.

Agree. And the dude complains he hates normal life, not knowing how blessed he is living normally...

And if his family sucks, why not make his own, cut tie with his parents who seem to be so retarded...

I find the so called prologue to be too long for its own good now.

Yeah, the prologue was fun in a "jokey" sort of way at first, but now it's just getting annoying.

I feel like the word has lost it's meaning in this manga.

What a twist chapter. Wish it was weekly so we can get quicker updates, as this the cliffhangers are really killer especially with nothing really explained so far.

I feel like I understand Sugamo even less than I did when she first appeared.

I don't really understand anything of what is going on in this story right now. Not even the MC knows what the hell is going on,

Chapter 9 got released.

I, for one, support this interesting new development in our MC.

Oh this manga just keeps getting more insane by the chapter. Can't wait to see post timeskip protagonist.
