I came across this manga a few months ago and have been loving it a lot. The storyline is pretty interesting, there's some rather unique and cool characters, and the artwork in it is awesome. I love how detailed and photo-realistic it is at times. It reminds me a bit of Gantz in that respect.

BTW, I've been wondering this awhile and I've googled it, but since this series seems to be something of a sleeper there isn't much feedback on it.

I'm not sure how much anyone reads american comics, at times I'll read certain Marvel comics if I hear a storyline that sounds interesting. The one exception being I'm a really big fan of Peter David so I tend to always get his work. He writes a comic called X-Factor. I see A LOT of similarities between Haruka and Layla Miller.

Both are young teen girls with light colored hair. Both are prescient and able to see glimpses of the future. Both join up with a kind of vigilante group that responds to things the law won't (or can't do). Both then tell the leader of their groups that they will marry him in the future.

I almost wonder at times if one or the other authors got ideas from it, although I think both started in 2005 (Well X-factor resumed after stopping for awhile, but the Layla addition didn't happen until it restarted in 2005).

You know you might have something there....I have to look at one of my comics. I am sure Western Super Heroes and Culture has some influence. Then again I wonder how much influence was really eastern to begin with

Colored by Ehko who is the da fuckin man when it comes to colorings and sigs!!!

*sigh*...well it is only 32 chapters. (Please don't complain about the spoilers.there is method to my madness)

I think Mamoru has been genetically altered and isn't fully human


Anyhoo. Due to my obsession had this page colored by Ehko



Colored PANEL
Spoiler for Here is the page. It looks a bit different from the render.:


Here is the render.








One of these days somebody will actually care that I posted these images here<--what I am telling myself

Am glad to be a fan of Takashige's storytelling.

Interesting protagonists, especially for a covert international anti-crime network. I like those kinda good guys.

What's awesome is Hijikita versus Fang's flying machines.

Has anyone else been praying we get an anime adaptation for this eventually? Its so much better than i thought it would be and its perfect for an anime run good action interesting characters i mean a blind samurai and a pre cog teen and shit load of fighting to go along with it.

Not to mention a militant hot chick who can fire a P-90 in style while wearing heels DAMN

Of course im hoping for an anime, but its obvious that it wont be the same, since there are too many violent scenes and blood messes. So even if an anime came, it would be have heavy censors.

But first we'll need a proper studio who can get all this right. Not to mention budget too.

However good the prospect of an animated version sounds, it definitely needs to do the manga justice. Personally I'm looking at A-1 Pictures' presentation of Valkyria this season.

Or Madhouse with their Rideback team.

well, this ended up catching my interest, and while I've only read the first few chapters... I'm hooked!

After the torturous stuff of Ashita no yoichi, and the fact that most other sword mangas are set back in other historical periods (and yet I continue to read all of it), it's a good remedy to have a badass swordsman in modern times

Naw it can be done look at how bloody some animes are most recently Shikabane Hime there is a ton of blood all over that series. Hell even Black Lagoon had kids getting offed. If it aired late at night they could get away with almost anything.

I wouldnt mind Madhouse getting their hands on it. I however would scream bloody murder if Gonzo got it.

If this turned into an anime, first thing I'd like secured is the fact that it is seinen...or it would end up like Kurokami (not that I hate it but from what I gather the manga was far more serious). About the mutilations,blood and gore: can't they just air it after midnight and skip the censoring? There's no fun in maiming if you can't see the blood spray all over the place!

THIS!

Yea...poor, butchered kurokami ;___;
And that is why I don't really want to see an anime for this unless some badass company picks it up. The only proper "gore" (blood spraying) series right now is Birdy, but A-1 are rather unstable with their quality.

And there is something insanely gar about Mamoru sticking his katana into a grenade
