Ichirou Inuyashiki is a compassionate man who always tries to help others, but his family doesn't appreciate him, and at 58 years old, Ichirou is distraught to learn that he's dying of cancer. In the same city lives Hiro Shishigami, a high-schooler whose personality is quite the opposite. He is cherished by his family, but Hiro is dissatisfied with life and reserves his limited compassion for the very few people he cares about. One night, an alien light hits the earth and both people are killed. They are restored by the extraterrestrials and given awesome new abilities, but how they each use their new powers are vastly different...

Great start but it slowly declined, in the end its not bad, just mediocre Contains some spoilers, nothing too major though Meet inuyashiki, a salaryman, whose family practically hates him even though he tries his best to please them and to make matters worse, he's got cancer which makes him look a lot older than he actually is. So what happens when he goes for a walk in the park and some aliens crash land to earth, destroy his body, recreates his body into a cyborg? Why of course he decides to save people!! It should come to no suprise that Oku is behind this, the only the author of gantz can pull off something as wacky as this. There's also another guy who is also a cyborg, Hiro. Both of them search for a way to feel human again, Inuyashiki saves people and Hiro kills people. This is quite intresting in the early chapters as it really shows the audience this clash between good and evil. Another really great thing is that Oku tends to make parodies of modern culture and this is cleverly written into the series.  Hiro undergoes quite a dramatic change with regards to his mother and shion (who likes him) and her grandmother. This is quite intresting as he does go through a character change but all this goes to shit when the poilce attack them and supposedly killed shion and granny.But they were still alive and Hiro knew this.......thenn why the hell did he go on a rampage and start killing hundreds of civillians? The event that triggered this rage was the death of shion and granny, so why go attacking and killing innocent people? Basically this made me question the whole point of the second half of the manga, there was no point to it, Hiro and Shion could have just simply left Japan. And why does Shion love Hiro? These half assed romances are nothing new to Oku, just look at gantz. In gantz characters became defined by their romantic intrests and this has carried on into his new manga. She loves him for no reason at all and this was the reason for his change? No, just no. Chapters 74 and 76......Donald Trump shows up. I nearly fell off my seat laughing and he declared the purge LOL The artwork in this manga is underwhelming, its only saving grace is that some of the character models look really good. Here's my problem and one of the biggest reasons why this manga was so hard for me to finish. The backgrounds are just desaturated photographs, I kid you not, it looks so jarring, so out of place. Oku didnt even bother to trace over the backgrounds like other manga artists, he could have just asked his assistants to do that, it wont take longer than an hour to trace it over. But no, he just has to stick as much of these photographs in as possible, characters look so out of place. Another big complaint is odd some of the panel layout is, like some pages are just filled with a collage of desaturated photographs. Another reason to show how lazy this is, when Hiro causes a panic and starts killing off people, normally you'd expect people to be panicking and running right? Nope, because in all of the photographs taken, people are just casually walking about, Oku didnt even bother to edit the people from the photographs out. Overall its an ok manga, I wonder how the anime will turn out, because its source material is meidocre. Would i recommend this manga? Yeah why not, its ok, its not terrible by any means.
