    Re: Mutou Black

    I was expecting this to be pretty mediocore, but I actually enjoyed the first chapter. The series reminds me a lot of Rurouni Kenshin(though perhaps too much so) and it did a pretty good job of keeping things interesting. Only downside is I'm not entierly sure what direction this would be headed in since the premise seems pretty basic, but if it can keep things up I think it has potential and I found it better than Soul Catchers and Smoky B.B.(though since Smoky B.B. was translated horribly I can't say how I felt about it one way or the other).

    Though since I liked it I expect it to fail spectacularly...*sigh*

    Re: Mutou Black

    To be honest, I tried to enjoy the first chapter but i didn't. Maybe it's because i got bored of that genre (there's already been Kenshin, Gamaran etc...) and i felt that contrary to those two mangas, this one isn't as captivating, at least for now.

    I think the author should have focused on setting up some sort of mystery, intrigue or something that can captivate the reader from the very beggining but he didn't do that. I mean, the protagonist is a little bit mysterious and cool but that's not enough.

    Spoiler show


    I was expecting a bit more but i gotta agree, this is by far better than the two newest series.

    I don't mean to be harsh or anything,i know thatthis could get better in the next chapters but this chapter was way too predictable and i didn't really feel interested even at the end. It could have been a lot better but i'll try to read a couple chapters more to make up my mind.

    I kind of like it. So far, it's still Kenshin-ey for now, but I like the fight and the art.

    Didn't find the characters or story especially interesting, though the action was good. Had some really nice looking pages.

    First chapter looked great, story-wise though I wasn't too crazy about it. As it's been mentioned it was just a pretty predictable first chapter full of stuff that's been done before. That being said I can't recall a single Jump action series that really grabbed me from the start, so when it comes to series like this I like to see where they go. Of the three new series I'm more interested in seeing this one go on for a bit, mainly to see if the author goes anywhere interesting with it.

    Like said already, too predictable and basically reads like Kenshin if you took out Kaoru.

    Though like others i would be more interested to see where something like this goes than smoky b.b. and soul catchers.
