    Freesia by Jiro Matsumoto

    Can't believe how underrated this series is, Probably my 2nd fav behind Gantz, Gotta love the awesome writing and Jiro's unique art style.

    I gave this one a shot a few days ago and it is actually good whoever the madness of the main male kind ruins it for me he is way too fucked up in the head, it does look like he start to get his stuff together later on the series, i do belive most woman wont enjoin this much since there is way too much violence/rape against woman on it.The action is very well done and the male lead has incredible skills if continues on becoming more of a normal guy this could turn to be one of the best mangas i have read.

    He tries to gain his sanity as the series goes on, but you can be the judge on that and I do know some women who love this series because of Higuchi (main character's boss)

    Jiro is my hero. I love all his works, this is no exception.

    Kano's insanity is one of my favourite points to this manga, I enjoy watching him struggle within his own mind while still managing to keep it together well enough to do his job fantastically. The plot setup is great, and every enforcement is interesting. There are some unresolved questions that I'm itching to know the answers to, and it's hard to tell where the story will go.

    So all in all, it's great.

    whatever happened to his imaginary friends? my theory on them was that they represented his guilt, if this is true than does that mean he feels no guilt for his kills anymore?

    This is the best series out right now, next to Gantz and Shigurui. You have excellent taste fellow.

    There were a bunch of hipsters bragging about how cool they are for picking Freesia up. Hadn't heard from them after one release.

    are you talking about Triumvirate? they released three chapters before they disappeared into obscurity.

    Yes, them. They had a pretentious kind of page to go with the releases. It's ironic.

    If we are lucky someone will recognize greatness. For now however groups will attend to insipid shonen and shoujo releases.

    The translation for all of volume 9 is available: http://www.zzled.net/manga/manga.php?id=4 and the raw for volume 9 is floating around somewhere, I would continue it except I hate scanlating my favorite series cause when I do everytime I see I'll be looking for flaws I did and it'll ruin the manga for me, that's why I usually scanlate things I don't really care about.

    That is a bizarre reason. I would have to be you to understand.

    Thanks for the link. I'll use it as a last resort if nobody picks the series up,

    I don't think I'll be sinking to that level this week. But you never know what the future holds.

    We (triumvirate) are waiting for tank scans before continuing Freesia.
