This week for Manga Monday I’ve got another Quick Review. It’s Yami no Aegis by Nanatsuki Kyouichi!
Plot Synopsis: Karito Tate is a bodyguard who takes on various jobs to protect VIPs using martial arts, various firearms, or high-tech gadgets…
Plot: The plot is pretty great, though considering that this is by the same guy who wrote Jesus I’m not surprised at all.
Characters: Karito is a good lead character, he’s smart and he’s a bad ass. Anna on the other hand is our female lead and she’s pretty mysterious. We don’t get to meet any other characters really in this first chapter, but still it’s a great introduction to Karito.
Art: I don’t enjoy the art style of this quite as much as I enjoyed Jesus’s art style, but it’s not terrible either. It just isn’t my favorite.
Overall: Again like Jesus, if you haven’t the series, you really ought to give it a chance. You’ll be doing yourself a disservice if you don’t.
For those who like: Action, Drama, Martial Arts, Great Plot, Badass Lead, Good Art.
This week for Manga Monday I’ve got another Quick Review. It’s Jesus by Nanatsuki Kyoichi!
Plot Synopsis: Jesus is about a high profile assassin who plans to fake his own death, laying low from all the mafia hitmen and the FBI that are after him. He plans to live the rest of his life with the money he could get from smuggling the drugs he stole from the mafia gangs – one of the reason he is chased. But he has a problem with that plan…
Plot: The plot is pretty great, frankly I’m shocked that I didn’t cover the series already. The story is fast paced and full of action and drama.
Characters: We really only get to meet Jesus in this first chapter, but he makes a great first impression. As for that name, it’s a fairly amusing reason. If you like Kickass leads who don’t take crap from anyone, you’ll love this series.
Art: It’s pretty great considering it’s from a two decade old series.
Overall: If you haven’t read the series yet, you are doing yourself a disservice.
For those who like: Action, Drama, School Life, Martial Arts, Great Plots, Badass Male Leads, Great Artwork.
