There's currently only 1 english release with 2 more coming up at Jan this year.
I read the Chinese version. Then was simply amazed by its plot and the fun. Action scenes are pretty cool since it involves supernatural powers. So we can say this is a Japanese version of the current tv show Heroes with hotter girls and better story and alien stories XD. The first volume of the manga started in 2003 which is quite early. Its release paces are pretty slow, only 12 Volume up till now. Anyone else here read it? Its awesome is it not :D

Only read the available English volume and i gotta say it was pretty good. Since it was only one volume I can't really say if it was real ghood or bad for me. Guess I will have to wait the 2nd volume to come out before I say more.

Just read the first four volumes, volume 1 set the scene nicely while 2 and 3 kinda just were eh.. but 4 got things back on track with Nami.

Read up to volume 6 so far and I enjoy it a lot. I really love how Taisuke uses his brain to fight against stronger opponents instead of getting some massive power-up to win.

The action, for those who are a bit tired with the apparent lack of battles and whatnot, picks up around
so don't feel too down about it. There's a buildup I appreciate, a slow progress that is a nice change from the eternal duel after duel after duel pattern that is depressingly too common to many shounen manga.

On a side note, I really dig all the quotes, mottos and expressions the author uses as chapter titles. I haven't seen such a fluent, meaningful use of English since Black Lagoon.

Spoiler for Chapter 23:

I have enjoyed reading this manga, but seeing as the onemanga translations are only to chp.23, I have a long way to go apparently.

Spoiler for chp.23:

Spoiler for Chapter 26 & 27:

I just read the first two volumes. I thought it was going to be a bit like Invasion of the Body Snatchers at first, but now it kinda reminds me of Witch Hunter Robin with all the murder's, powers, different species of human n'all that jazz. I'm really enjoying it though.

I feel bad for bumping this but.
What the hell. Did. Did that just happen?
Chap 35 Spoilers

i'm really suprised this manga isnt getting much attention, this is really good.

evil|plushie 2009-04-12 11:25

It gets much better later on.

Alive 2009-04-12 21:20

Ya this manga does get odd at times but overall it is really good

Mizuno 2009-04-12 21:30

Is this still going to be made into anime? Since Gonzo is in so much uncertainty and also, the official website is gone.

Yaluen 2009-04-12 22:54

I thought chapter 35 and the events leading up to it was just one massive mind screw

Spoiler for ch 35:

I'm still confused as to whether this is going to be made into an anime or not. It's been announced for a while now, yet that's about all I've heard

I dont think it was Megumi who gave birth to the devil child.

An anime for this series would be awesome.

evil|plushie 2009-04-13 02:54

Megumi *spoilers for vol 12 onwards*

Von Himmel 2009-04-13 12:19

Just who is that child ? I assumed that it was the heart of Akuro, but then after re-reading it, I don't think that it's possible :(
Though, I don't know if there are more Akuro in this world :(

Wargumm1i 2009-04-13 12:28

That person who is called Mama or the mother of all the children in the group that Taisuke was incare of, I find that person called Mama a horrible person, I mean she didint even recognize her own daughter when she meet her again after along time.

I mean this person Mama is a person who really loves freedom and sex addict who loves giving birth but not raising them. Thats why i think she is hot, but overall hate her.

evil|plushie 2009-04-13 19:59

Well, in vol. 15, you find out that Mama really cares for her children I guess.
