    I pretty liked this series as compared to their one shot. The art is become much better than before and I liked about not fighting other Kagijin until next chapter, it's like first arc of Toriko, Galala Alligator arc.

    Also, it looks like the author changed monkey to dolphin, and changed the heroine.

    Well I think this series started better than his previous one - hitomi no catoblepas. Based on the raw only, it looks quite interesting. The heroine looks nice and the protagonist looks better than in the one shot. His art has indeed improved. This starts better than akaboshi imo. It has the potential but I'll hold my breath because you never know

    Does anyone know that art of Kagijin is different from hitomi no catoblepas? Or is it just my imagination?

    Well it's more solid than hitomi no catoblepas. There's some improvement imo. Maybe it's always better to check out for yourself because we all differ in opinions

    Re: [NEWCOMER]Kagijin by TANAKA Yasuki

    What? I'm a bit confused now.
    I have read the raw for the first chapter after having read the oneshot. And I liked the changes to it - the story seemed to be more complex and original, characters - more original and thought out.
    But one thung completely threw me off - the new design of protagonist. Come on, can it get any worse? And he was so well designed in the oneshot - a real nomad of the desert, with that cloth on the head and other details. And now I simply can not look athim without giving a facepalm! Sheesh.
    And his power chaged. Oh yeah, a sword. Come on, you open a keyhole on your hand and a sword comes out? Sheesh.
    And that captain is a cat? What, cat people again?

    So yeah, this has some potential to it. Though only if the main hero has some series make over. Or dies in a horrible accident.
    I guess, I will keep my eyes on it.

    The translation is out. Let's hope that a quality scan comes out too! The changes between the one-shot and the actual series are ok with me except one thing; the hero's ability! Why make him having a sword? It is so cliche and the fights with swords aren't so awesome. And what happened to the bird (the spirit-like)? (T_T) It was so damn cool!

    Looks like some people don't like new design of Tsubame and his new form of ability. It's not that bad as what other people complain about. But, I think key changing into weapons, like katana or axe, reminds me of MÄR, although I didn't enjoy series as much.

    And, Childa does looks like from Caska, for similar appearance and they both are in army. I think the author got new design for Childa from Berserk, or it maybe just a coincidense.

    I like the char design change a lot. Based on that picture of the one shot, he looked like some nurse or doctor from ER. But that's of course an issue of personal taste.

    I can't give an opinion on this chapter yet because a scan would make everything easier. But the concept with the keys, the weapons, the art, the world, etc it looks pretty good

    I never saw the oneshot, so I can't comment on the visual changes to the protagonist, but when I saw the female lead, I did think I was looking as Caska from Berserk... before Griffith screwed her (pun intended).

    The one thing I do hope is that this doesn't turn into something like Blazer drive. Where the girl can't use the keys at first then can... seriously overdone. I'll keep checking and hoping for some originality.

    I just realized that Kagijin has similar background as Psyren, which in future, civilization are almost completely destroyed. Only difference is Psyren moves from present to future, and Kagijin is stay in future background.

    Well tons of manga, movies, and books have used an apocalyptic future as a setting for the story.

    In Psyren, thought, they go to the future to try to prevent it, while in Kagijin, the future is the present and there is no changing it.

    So I think they differ more than they appear to.

    Wikipedia Japan indicated that Kagijin is science fiction manga because of its set up. But, I'm not sure it is SF manga. So does anyone know are there any SF manga in past Shonen Jump series, and if there are, are they successful?

    One that comes to mind was Waq Waq by the author of Houshin Engi. But it only lasted 4 volumes.
