    Kurogane by IKEZAWA Haruto

    Kurogane
    By: IKEZAWA Haruto
    Genre: Sports, School Life, Ecchi
    Serialized In: Weekly Shounen Jump
    Mangaupdates

    Kurogane Hiroto is in high school, where he is academically the top of his class but literally the worst in physical activity. Born with a weak body, he has no endurance, speed nor strength and Hiroto wants nothing more than to be a hero. Fate teases him by giving him phenomenal eye sight, which allows him to see well beyond anyone else in sports, but his body is not able to react to any of it.

    He learns from his friend Shiratori, who wants to recruit him for the Kendo team, about a rumor about a ghost named Tojo Sayuri, who wields a katana and haunts an ally in the city. Half curious, Hiroto goes there only to find that the ghost is real and that Tojo Sayuri has been looking for a successor to her Sakura sword style for 150 years. Sayuri chooses him as the successor after being able to dodge her attack and forces him to learn the Sakura style. Even with the help of the ancient swordsman ghost, Hiroto has to overcome his poor motor skills in order to be the hero he always wanted to be.

    Re: [New] Kurogane by IKEZAWA Haruto

    Well this series seems somewhat interesting. I like the concept and I could easily see it turning into a more mainstream battle manga if it needs to..Only real complaint so far is the art it's pretty inconsistent and there were times where Sayuri almost looked like a man. Though if the series lasts long enough I suppose the art will improve.

    Of course if it;s true that the author badmouthed other JUMP series I;m not sure how much I can be on board with this one.

    Still kinda mediocre but I couldn't bring myself to hate it.

    I really wish they'd dropped the wacky mascot angle though, I like Sayuri way more in human form.

    Re: [New] Kurogane by IKEZAWA Haruto

    I'm not ready to judge Kurogane yet, good or bad. I did not hate the first chapter, which is a good start. There were good points: he draws action very well, Kendo matches should be fast paced and exciting. I like the characters, particularly Sayuri. Kurogane can be a bit cliche at times, especially his hero fetish but he's otherwise a nice lead.Shiratori is ditsy and annoying, the worst thing about the first chapter. Good enough to keep reading but not a series that grabbed me immediately.

    I'm inclined to believe that Ikezawa did not bad mouth his fellow Jump mangaka and the rumor is the work of 2CH trolls. Far more likely than an un-sourced rumor being proven true

    There's really nothing to talk about chapter 1 since it is just rewritten version of its one shot version. So, I think real judgement about this series will start on next chapter.

    After reading up to chapter 4, this series isn't really that bad. I'm going to look forward on how it'll do on ranking.

    Kurogane is not bad at all...really like all the characters.
    the sayuri and kurogane relationship is cliche but enjoyable.
    Like negative, looking forward to see how it do in the ranking.
