    Well the rabbit girl is definitely good willed. I think she saved teppei by cooling him down when his power turned against him. She might be like Teppei, she might be a normal girl who got powers after the events.

    I know, I mean weird in appereance, she seems to me very out of the context when she appearead in the chapter 2, judging by all that ugly monsters and all. I'm starting to get used, though, we know that cute monsters will appear sooner or later. XD

    Yeah, she was good willed. Maybe she can become the first partner in Teppei's group later.

    Chapter 3 was pretty dull and could even be more dull if the next chapter goes a predictable route making everyone turn their backs to him now that they know he has this power. Atrocious character antagonists, and just plain dull exposition overall. The series started strong but is sinking pretty fast.

    Also out of curiosity I read the original One Shot.It''s almost funny how superior OS Teppei is to actual story Teppei.

    More cliche is impossible. That was chapter 4 for me. The chapter didn't have anything interesting but the girl's speech in the end. She said some creepy things, but her face is innocent, I don't know what's her intentions.
    The overall of those four chapters was a decreasing of the quality. I really like the first chapter, but the quality has fallen since then.

    Unlike others, I start to dig this even more each chapter. It might be basically predictable but most of the obvious things are that way. This prediction is logical. Chapter 5 was really good because this girl taught teppei to use his powers differently. They analyzed their opponent and the means he used weren't predictable, original and plain. No ridiculous deus ex machina event, the shield was a good weapon

    I don't know. The unanimous resentment from the townspeople Teppei just saved from chapter 4, including and especially, his own best friend, just seems so out of place, and dare I say, contrived, if only to just drag the storyline longer to gain the trust of the townspeople.

    Also, there doesn't seem to be any direction with the story. What is Teppei's goal, apart from his generic survival instinct and saving your friends?

    Maybe I'm wrong and somehow, the storyline will end up like World Trigger, having a very slow pace at the beginning but a firm structure to show if given the leeway, but I can't see it happening so long as Teppei continues not to have a role model or something.

    Unfortunately, I think all of that made it just a really dull and uninteresting chapter. There was not gripping, shocking, or just interesting for it. 14 pages and exposition as well even Topping it off with the friend being there in the line of danger as well didnt really do it any favors. I hope the series takes off in a bit though as this miniarc of sorts is just not doing it for me.

    Well, I think that's the current goal (and direction) for the series; it may introduce new direction as soon as Teppei's dad/friends fate is revealed.

    Plus, I don't really think the goal matter since I know there is one series which main character doesn't have clear goal but managed to become hit (*cough*cough Bleach *cough*cough).

    See, but that's the whole point:

    In most series, the character and story development is too fast, too complex, too dull, etc (hungry joker,... ).In my opinion, you can not say this about Iron Knight. This is still about a boy who is totally lost and who has to act on his own without exactly knowing how the world exactly is.

    The premises are plain and easy; the reason why the mangaka is keeping it that story plain at this moment. The relevations, complex outcomes, etc... are issues which will be told later on.

    I think the worst thing you can do now, is looking for story depth. At this moment, you have to go with the flow.

    Whether this is sufficient for WSJ survival is something I leave in the middle

    Re: Iron Knight by YAGI Tomohiro

    I don't know whether I liked of this chapter or not, the explanation was fairly nice, but all the story still needs more appeal, something that I hanve't seen since chapter 1, which I like the most until now. It lacks good scenes to impress the reader and make the things interesting. What matters for a new series is votes, so I always evaluate taking into consideration this question, and, at this moment, I wouldn't vote to it.

    This girl stills intrigues me, though. Where is she from and why is she helping Teppei? She is that rabbit of before? Teppei should rely on her? I think that it is the point that interests me more.

    I wouldn't vote it either because there are other WSJ series which impress me more but unlike some other - already cancelled - WSJ series, you can not say that this one is generic and over the top.

    If the mangaka will start with some story development from chapter 10 and onwards then - according to me - this series might become a WSJ manga like Muhyo to Roujie/Psyren/Nurarihyon no Mago. The story has already a mini-arc and it doesn't rush the story. Its first act = a new demonic world and Teppei with demon powers. I do agree with all of you that it is quite simple and plain but unlike a lot of people, it is not bland to me and it is really good to keep it that simple because a lot of newcomers can be blamed that their action x story copies the big shounen too much

    To those who are interested, the raw for chapter 6 is already out. The plot is building slow but nicely, IMO.
