Nagasawa Shiina is just an average 3rd year high school student until her parents' company goes bankrupt. In order to pay the bills, she sells herself into prostitution. At her first job, a mysterious masked man crashes the party... and it's someone she knows.

Akumetsu is the story of Shou, a vigilante that's out trying to straighten the corrupt Japanese Government through terrorism with his "One man, One kill" code of action.


Why You Should Read This:

This is one of the most hilarious and over-the-top mangas i have read up to this point, yet at its core, it is fundamentally serious, just like the main character himself basically, and it tackles a topic that could not be more contemporary: the corruption within the system.

Superficially, Akumetsu can be read as an entertaining vigilante manga surrounding the protagonist Shou who uses a mysterious power to kill everyone who he deems evil in the most gruesome ways he can think of. This alone makes reading the manga worthwhile since, putting the moral issues aside, Akumetsu himself and the way he passes those judgments on the corrupt is most of the time so creative and extreme that you can not help but feel entertained, though admittedly, if you only read it in that capacity, it might get too wordy sometimes.

Beyond that though, it reveals the most fundamental problems within the Japanese system, sometimes too one-sidedly of course, while presenting a moral dilemma: What would you do if you had the chance to punish all those elites that do not give a shit about the population and the common citizen?

I read around five chapters. It's really entertaining even if I'm not a fan of the art style.


I'll put it on THE LIST. Right after Spirit Circle.
