Elevator pitch: From the duo behind such works as Death Note and Bakuman, comes a story 'about a human and an angel'. Serialisation begins in November.

Pretty promising.

 

Reminds me a lot of the Reversi manga, they did in Bakuman - in style and themes.

so after having shinigamis now it's angels turn?

that angel is so pushy "come on." ^.^
there it goes the grim turn, as if this was going to be only an happy story about angels doing good things :3

that selection with a special companion sounds similar to fate and other stories before, wonder how it'll get executed

After reading chapter 1, it reminds me a mixture of Zatch Bell! and Future Diary.

Angels and killings. I wonder how the God is going to be elected. Will it be a death match? And it doesn't seem to be about doing any good deeds etc.  :psyduck:

Also Mirai's angel may seem inoccent and cute, but something tells me she is doing it for herself rather than to make Mirai happy

she indirectly did lead to the aunt getting killed, if she did that on purpose she's quite the sneaky kind

That art, though.

 

I'm interested to see more of the hierarchy of angels in this story.

 

It seems the angels sent out are all plain angels and some arch-angels. Higher angels don't have human forms and can kill mortals just by being in their presence. 

 

I'm interested to see the rest, but it won't be continued until the January issue? I'm going to be suffering if this manga doesn't pick up and drop into weekly release.

 

I already have to deal with D. Gray-Man's quarterly releases. I'll forget I even read these before the next chapter makes it out.


 

One other thing: the statement that there are no demons is true. The word demon is the (iirc) ancient greek word for angel. 

 

Christianity "demonized" the mythical spirits of the pagan religions it pushed out. So, demons are really just the angels from a different religion.

To be honest, the first chapter left an unpleasant taste.

Maybe it's because Nacha already gave a manipulative vibe midway through the chapter. That she's egging Mirai to do whatever he wants, whatever constitutes "happiness".

Or maybe it's because the story is trying to be deep/spiritual/philosophical, but compared to Hiroyuki Takei's musings in Shaman King, it instead feels pretentious

 

And am I too quick to jump the gun, or is the winning objective to "take all the happiness for oneself"?

 

 

So far I've seen this compared with Death Note, Shaman King, Konjiki no Gash Bell and Future Diary. I agree with those.

I'll like to add Narutaru to the mix. Disasters in the form of benevolence.

 

... actually, this is like the complete opposite of Binbougami Ga!

In that series, the main character Ichiko has so much Fortune Energy that she gets massively selfish, so the Misfortune God Momiji came to take back that Fortune Energy, all the while spending the story trolling and straightening her out.

But here, that angel is the one giving the main character the opportunity to go wild and seek his own happiness, ominously so...

Its more or less obvious shes kinda manipulating him. While shes probably not malicious about it due to possessing some kind of angel morality its gonna be interesting to see how far she'll go to give him happiness. Also what exactly are her feelings towards Mirai which will prolly devlop as the series goes on. Beautiful art to.

@gamria

"Or maybe it's because the story is trying to be deep/spiritual/philosophical, but compared to Hiroyuki Takei's musings in Shaman King, it instead feels pretentious"

felt that too, but it was the first chapter, they had to do something obvious to show what the serie is about

expecially if there is going to be a long delay for the next chapter, this could be seen as a complete prologue, where the previous bit was just a part of the prologue

 

"And am I too quick to jump the gun, or is the winning objective to "take all the happiness for oneself"?"

that wasn't worded very clearly in the chapter, but that could be just the prize for winning

 

"... actually, this is like the complete opposite of Binbougami Ga!

But here, that angel is the one giving the main character the opportunity to go wild and seek his own happiness, ominously so..."

interesting comparison, any misfortune god watching while mirai will mess around should itching to go fix that imbalance of fortune energy xD

i'm suspecting nache is related in some way to the family of mirai, and her mother, so maybe she's looking out for him and also trying to avenge them at the same time

that or she's just very cynical about justice, sure the aunt and uncle were criminal scum, but she felt pretty cold when the aunt died and when she sort of pushed mirai in that situation

I'm not sure what to think of this yet. I enjoyed it but not to a great extent. It's only the first chapter though and I have 100% trust that this duo mangaka will create something amazing.

Ryuk sure got prettier. :isee:

 

It is difficult not to be reminded of other stories with similar premises like Gash Bell and Mirai Nikki but I just hope it steers more into Zatch Bell than Mirai Nikki.

 

Also, the MS translation was much better actually.

 

The mother and Nasse resemble each other which I'm sure will probably be a plot point later on. No reason to show the mother's face otherwise. 

 

Was very solid and Nasse seems to hold no morality in what she does. I can see Mirai being her moral compass and hope those two get proper development on their relationship throughout the manga. I just hope the story won't get too convoluted.

someone, somewhere else, did mention how yagami in death note did joke about having wings in exchange for half of his life, instead of shinigami eyes, would have been an interesting deal
making them wonder if mirai was some sort of reincarnation of light
Spoiler death note ch6

it's just something silly, but it's funny to look back and see the recurring elements from their previous works :3

Well... This seems very Mirai Nikki-esque, albeit a bit more adult - even the main character seems like a reference.

Not sure how I feel about humans becoming the new god. Had no idea what to expect the first few pages. Thought it was turning into a harem manga. If it's written by that Death Note person, then I'll give it a shot.

I really disliked the beginning and went on only because of who the authors were. 

 

In the end, it was not a bad read. The angel Nasse is way too cute, to the point of being annoying, but at least we was made without any morality and does what she does for her own ends. That's not bad at all. At least she's not just a guarding angel. What's more, there will be no love story between her and Mirai. Thankfully. 

 

Mirai's past was way too "tragic" honestly. So much that it becomes really hard to relate to him in any way (while, on the other hand, it was so easy to relate to Light in the beginning of Death Note). 

 

The ending of the chapter was too sweet with that desire for happiness, but it's the first chapter, so I guess it's fine. 

 

What saved the chapter for me was the "god choosing" thing. It reminded me a lot of Shaman King, and I wonder how that will turn out. We'll have 13 humans elected, but not so many angels seem really enthusiastic. Which is a wonder. 

 

Also, the art was gorgeous. Apart from Nasse who looks annoyingly cute, everything looked amazing. 

 

For a first chapter, I honestly didn't like it much, but I'll give it a go, mainly because it's Obha/Obata...
