Summary: Nagasawa Shiina is just an average 3rd year high school student until her parents' company goes bankrupt. In order to pay the bills, she sells herself into prostitution. At her first job, a mysterious masked man crashes the party... and it's someone she knows.

Akumetsu is the story of Hazama Shou, who defends his own view of justice in a vigilante manner while wearing a mask and calling himself Akumetsu. [courtesy of manga-updates]


I don't know what it is with me and people who kill other people in the name of good, but apparently I just loooove them, since I can't seem to stop reading stories like that. >_> Akumetsu is apparently classified as a shounen, but I'd have to disagree and stick it under seinen. I've seen more people thrown out of windows and going "splat" on the pavement below in this manga than exists in every movie ever to show such a thing. Not to mention all the people shot, bludgeoned to death, drowned, cut down by a katana, etc. I mean, who puts stuff like that in a shounen manga? C'mon. XDDD

All else aside, this manga is definitely not for everyone. It shows a political aspect of Japan that took me a while to grasp - there's a lot of talking about corrupt government officials, political parties and the like, so be prepared to have Wikipedia pulled up as you read this, haha. It took me at least 3 days to read, on and off, because of that, but I really enjoyed it nonetheless. I have to hand it to Shou, he's a well informed terrorist. <333 And so very brave; if everyone had half his balls (and ability!), our world would be a much more exciting place. *snorfle* Akumetsu is very gripping though, completely sucked me in and kept going, even if I did have to stop at points to Google something or, you know, sleep. And the ending...well, I understand that it ended that way, let me phrase it like that. Even if I did tear up a little. ;__;

Warning: This manga contains scenes that may not make you comfortable while reading, such as copious amounts of blood, gore, and killing. Please read at your own risk.

I managed to read it to after vol 14 and when I started reading vol 15 I got tempted to know what's going to happen at the end so I read the last chapter...I also skimmed through vol 18 cause it was a bit too much for me since he got hurt :(

Sigh~ Now I don't want to read the rest I know the ending and that there would be torture cause I searched for the manga discussion. ^^;;

Anyway, I enjoyed reading the manga a lot which is how I got to vol 15 right after I dl it and the art is nice too, I think that's why I dl it ^^. Thank you for uploading this.

You....
