    Off to a good start, as usual in these series the transformation idea always resorts in a powerup to get ugly so it wasnt good but at times the action with it was really intense. Looking forward to all Teppei does in the upcoming chapter and if he can find his one friend at school (not Tsubasa-chan).

    Putting the total destruction in chp 1 was a good move.

    Re: Iron Knight by YAGI Tomohiro

    what I liked: it's gritty, teh story is dark and suspenseful, mildly gory (in WSJ standarts) and it has a lot of potential as it could go either way. (restoring the world or living in it)

    what i did not like: The art, too close to Ubel Blatt which never appealed to me for it's art. Again the main character starts as insanely powerful and it becomes hard to imagin how he can develop, except the iron lances the one-shot showed. I would have had preferred him to not fully transform right away.....

    Re: Iron Knight by YAGI Tomohiro

    Strangest series in a while that has been introduced into WSJ...

    The first chapter feels more like a one shot in my opinion. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily but it will depend on the upcoming chapters. The setting, a post apocalyptic world is interesting. The story itself hasn't been properly introduced in my opinion but as I said, the upcoming chapters might do good.

    The must curious thing is the art: in the beginning, it looks really childish in my opinion but when the destruction of the world and the first villain was introduced then the art somewhat changes because of the character/monster design.

    Anyway, I'll give it a chance but I highly doubt that it will be able to survive

    Re: Iron Knight by YAGI Tomohiro

    I liked the first chapter, more than some series that I read from Jump lately. It has mystery and it is quite serious, too. Regarding the art, I have the theory that it changed from the middle to the end to bring a contrast between the nice life that he was living and the desperate situation from now on. So, I believe that it was intentional, otherwise there would be no reason to the art evolve from a page to another.

    His power has margin to evolve, it always has, it can seem a great power, but we don't know the level of that demon who he fought, I think it was pretty low. Well, looking forward for the next chapter. I want to know what happened with Tsubasa-chan and the others. There is a huge gap, he simply wake up in the middle of the street. o.o

    Re: Iron Knight by YAGI Tomohiro

    Aw hes really good lead in this new second chapter and could really feel and everything how he was slowly starting to get more and more lonely and having a difficult time keeping up his fun and antics as the days went on. His whole ability naming thing was funny.

    Sadly, having a rabbit loli is a terrible move for the writer to make

    Re: Iron Knight by YAGI Tomohiro

    At this moment there's nearly no plot development and in my opinion this might be a good thing. The mysteries are a reason why I read this. Anyway, the only thing I regret is that the character development is plain. But it's nice to see, how the kid is dealing with his power.

    The bunny is cute and funny, I wonder if she is good

    The feeling of loneliness was very good in this chapter, how he was talking to himself all the time and doing things to forgot about this loneliness. The rabbit girl was weird, though, broke the serious atmosphere completely and I really didn't understand why this shape. It brokes the sense of "monster" as well.
    Well, I really hope that there is a good explanation for that, or a more monstrous shape behind this cute form, otherwise, it can broke readers' expectations.

    It was interesting,I guess
    The MC's demon form is cool but I doubt this is gonna be sucessful at Jump(although if it ends up being I'll eat my words).

    Chapter 3

    I don't know if he is doing this on purpose to make mystery or if he is confused, but another gap in the story without much reason, apparently Teppei collapsed again. He found some people, it will be ineteresting how they will react to the fact that he is a monster, too.

    Re: Iron Knight by YAGI Tomohiro

    I think this thing happens on purpose. Teppei (or whattever his name is) is on a search for answers and I like it how he is confronted with unsolved questions. As a reader you get more involved with him.

    Anyway, in the beginning it might be good do this but I kind of expect a story progression from chapter 8-10. It is annoying when important information is given directly.

    I loved the third chapter more than the second one. The character development might happen too easy but I loved how determined the hero was to pick on a fight.

    Re: Iron Knight by YAGI Tomohiro

    I guess you're right about the mystery. I complained a bit because sometimes it can be the author confusion, I hope that it is not the case here. I'm quite interested in the first mystery where Tsubasa and the others disappeared. The rabbit girl... well, I still think her weird, but I cannot judge by the appearance, I suppose.

    I know since the beginning that he will pick a fight, there is no way to stay quiet when you see someone you like being hurt and you have the power to make it stop. That bad guy told about someone else who "invaded his territory", anoter gang maybe?
