The world is a desert where trees and flowers are extremely rare.
A nice guy wanderer who uses a lethal weapon but in a non-lethal and pacifistic way, who has lived noticeably longer than a normal human would, who has a mysterious past which is alluded to and slowly unfolded as the series progresses, and who travels around a desert wasteland where the remnants of sci-fi ships are sometimes used as the framework for buildings and towns. Is this set-up reminding anyone else of Trigun, or is it just me? Anyway, the story has good plot beats to it, with each chapter feeling like it has a purpose and including some interesting developments. That said, some of the developments felt like they may have occurred too quickly. And, somewhat related, I think the author had moments where fe crammed too much exposition back-to-back in dialogue and flashbacks, without much breathing room for the reader to absorb things. The concept of the fights (and the flower sword) was more interesting than the fights themselves (which were fine, but somewhat underwhelming). I don't think I actually like any of the characters in this manga. Though it's not that I hate them either or anything. I think they're just kinda dull and maybe a tad bit annoying. There's a good amount of detail put into the backgrounds and in the gear and automatic warriors, which makes the artwork quite pleasant to look at.
