Long ago, there existed two different groups of people. One had red blood and the other had blue blood. They co-existed peacefully, but eventually they started to hate each other and a war broke out.The massive red blood army initially overwhelmed the blue blood but with the help of new technology developed by Kodo, the prince of the blue blood, the blue bloods were victorious. The new technology, called the Haguruma, is a powerful robot type machinery capable of devastating destruction.As the red blood people were enslaved, Kodo saw what monstrosity his Haguruma was being used for. Helpless red blood people were being hunted down and murdered. Overwhelmed by guilt, Kodo rescued the refugee red bloods and refused to build any more machines. His father, the king, ordered him to be executed, but he barely escaped and now without a home, he must survive on his own.
Interesting manga just read the first chapter - still not much for me to create a detailed impression. However, I certainly do like the premise and the art style, moreover its always interesting to see a main character whose specialty is not fighting but thinking and inventing. In addition to him basically trying to fix the situation his inventions have done. I think the manga has potential.
Second chapter was pretty heart rending but intriguing at the same time, yeah definitely can't wait for more of this series.
It has promise, but we need to see more. It did seem more than a little cliched at the start. I just have this feeling that it's going to turn into an even worse version of SnK, and I don't think much of SnK.

Re: [New] Seiketsu no Haguruma by Hanao Kohei
Same opinion over here. I enjoyed the first chapters but it is still a matter of confirming the opportunities it has. The premise isn't original, it very often happens that good intentions, talents are (ab)used for an evil goal. Meanwhile, a confrontation or a meeting with the so claimed "evil" side opens the protagonist's eyes. He feels being a naive person because he discovers the cruel consequences coming from his machines made by his talent. BUT this common premise was worked out pretty well, the pace was decent enough. Let's wait and see, more needs to be served, so that we can see if it can confirm the good vibes.
