So Mangastream just put this up.
Edgy and cathartic at the same time.
Whats the opinion, /a/? Full on Edgemaster? Or worthwhile read?
Now we have the younger Kishimoto to compare to the older.
A tad odd, if anything.
The whole eye for an eye thing, i wonder how he's going to spin a story out of it.
Besides going for the "an opposing organisation" will fight against them 'cause killing people is wrong. Or the reporter friend grows a weird set of morals and start working against it.
Either the main dude breaks the rules when he's confronted by the person who hurt him and gets scrapped and put on the hit list.
Kishi's the guy who edgemaster supreme sasuke uchiha remember.
This is Kishi's younger twin brother doing this. But considering...
>Now we have the younger Kishimoto to compare to the older.
You realize he's written other series before, right?
As Japan's population grows older and smaller, and murder rates sky rocket, the Japanese government began to implement stricter laws against the worst criminals. With even the death penalty lacking the deterring force to stop the most violent criminals, Japan brought back to life a law from the 19th century: the "Revenge" law. This law will now allow victims and their related parties to employ a government special forces agency to capture the murderer and reenact the exact same methods with which the victim died onto the murderer.
Yamagishi Yuji is the 7th member of the Special Forces "Sukedachi-nin." Each of the members of this special forces have been chosen to enforce the Revenge law because they too have been a victim of past crimes. [DrCoke]
Didn't know Jump targets for edgy teenagers these days.
Holy shit, this was edgemaster to the point that young Kishi must be bleeding buckets while drawing the sketch.
Assistants must be dying like flies.
From the description we know that the hero is not some twisted shit because he works under law.its only chapter 1 and you can't judge anything from chapter 1 and more so because the genre is shounen
I honestly can see several places where they could take it.
1. Weekly Bad Guy. Law and Order style. Crime. Trial. Execution.
2. Crime Boss big bad.
3. Political pressure to abolish the system and anti-Revengers trying to stop the revenge killing.
Otherwise, I dunno. Slow reveal of each person and their tortured past and why they do what they do. Parade of victims and irredeemable killers. The one 'falsely convicted guy' arc. Got to be one of those.
The best part:-
>In the event that the condemned is able to achieve a Kaeri-Uchi, the vengeance execution will be terminated. As the victor of the duel, they will earn the right to a pardon for three years of amnesty after which they will be euthanized and receive a peaceful painless death.
Can it get more stupider.
I remember already reading this, but it was way, way better
They are twins, but their respective success is on a different scale. It's fascinating, actually. Let's help Seichi out by making him the more popular brother.
Meh. Its a cliche final villain that actually works because his motivations are somehow in the least bit empathizable.
I prefer the villains that are in it for the evilulz.
Millennium Earl was my favorite for that. Dude just wanted to fuck up everybody. And laugh at his deals.
Even though it follows a stupid logic of how law and punishment work, I love gritty revenge stories.
Especially if they are creative in their punishments like the fly paper in this one
