    Green Blood by KAKIZAKI Masasumi


    Green Blood
    Author: Kakizaki Masasumi
    Serialization: Young Magazine
    Genre: Action, Historical
    Mangaupdates

    The end of the civil war signaled the start of the industrial revolution in the United States and immigrants from all over the world traveled to find their American dream. But what awaited the majority of them was poverty, discrimination, and hopelessness. Manhattan, New York was full of immigrants flooding through the ports and the 6th district, Five Points, was considered at the time, the world’s worst slum. The mobsters corrupted the entire area, including the police by paying them off; Five Points was the mob’s territory and they were the law.

    But even Five Points, where there seemed to be nothing but robbery, prostitution, and murder, showed some signs of hope. Luke Burns was an honest and righteous teenager who realized that the mob was the cause of their harsh lifestyle and that joining the mobsters would not bring him the American dream. But his older brother, Brad Burns, had become an assassin for the biggest mob group of Five Points, the Grave Diggers, a secret he kept from Luke for his own protection. Brad was known as the Grim Reaper and his reputation preceded him as a ruthless and skilled killer.

    From the author of Hideout.

    Green Blood has already ended. It has five volumes in total. The last one was published a month ago.
    Huge fan of history and Nordic culture, serious mature stories, Yukimura Makoto, Iwaaki Hitoshi and Tezuka Osamu.

    The last chapter is Chapter 49. But nobody is translating them right now. Really a shame.

    For anyone that is reading this series or wants to read it Mangastream has chapters 1-28 translated in super high quality on their site. http://mangastream.com/manga/green_blood

    They said that they will work on doing the rest of the series which goes to the final chapter 49. I hope they work on it regularly again as I can't wait to see more of the epic artwork!

    Also, if you like this time period and type of action you should check out the TV show Copper it's pretty badass as well. =)

    I have finished this like one week ago, but just today suddenly the urge to comment popped up. I have to say that I'm slightly disappointed by how short it is - which is more likely due to commercial reasons rather than the author's initiative. The art quality is superb, and the story had a lot of potential to be expanded but ended up being quite repetitive on some occasions. Nevertheless, it's a good manga, but unfortunately it failed to meet my high expectation on this series.
