Comment :
Got hooked by this manga after reading the first 3 chapters. I don't know why, neither the plot nor the art is amazing enough, yet I keep going on and on until eventually I ran out of translated chapters to read. One thing I can concluded is this manga has potential to be good, it depends on how the author will play the cards.

Comment :
At first, I started reading this manga just for shit and giggles. The parody of shonen superhero 'monster of the week' genre sounds juicy for my funny bones. Yet in the end I stay for the coolness of this manga. The art is really good, it's drawn by Murata of Eyeshield 21 fame. The manga is famous for its awesome two-page spreads, which are usually frame-to-frame images of action scene.


    my lil bro also recommended this one for me xD

  2. I mean the "Ansatsu Kyoushitsu" one xD

  3. Gotta check out One Punch Man.
