Evil Eater (イーヴィル・イーター)

Status: 1 Volume (Ongoing)
Manga Details Page: Here
Translations: None
Scanlations: None

In the future, magic is recognized as a legitimate part of the scientific community. The small number of people gifted with magical potential are trained and then placed into a special government agency as a magic enforcer. Technology has allowed us to bring back the dead if another life is sacrificed. If the court deems it appropriate, a murderer’s life would be sacrificed to revive the victim. However, during this resurrection process, the revived person, called the Returner, comes back with a psychological problem called the Bug where negative emotions such as jealousy, revenge or anger become amplified. If left alone, the Returner becomes consumed in this emotion and, eventually, it will physically manifest itself in the form of a dangerous monster. The true role of the magic enforcer is to eliminate that Bug.

Nagumo Kento, codenamed Deep Searcher, is a seasoned magic enforcer whose role is "Searcher" in where he draws out the evil using his unique power. His brand new partner, Amagi Yoko, codenamed Evil Eater, is a rookie who recently graduated from the academy as a prodigy, even by magic user’s standards. Her job as "Debugger" is to use her power to dispose of the evil that Kento brings out and even the experienced members of the magic enforcers are shocked by Yoko’s power. Together, Kento and Yoko work against the seeds of evil to allow Returners to enjoy their second chance at life.

For the entirety of his life, Yokoda Takashi has been drawing erotic drawings and it has been his way of expressing his sexuality. And now, he has managed to become a successful erotic comedy manga author for a monthly magazine. His series stars a character named Aimi who is actually based loosely on his niece with the same name. He keeps his job a secret, especially from his family from the fear that using Aimi’s name in such a perverted way would cause hatred from everyone. But his manga’s popularity rises and gets moved to a weekly magazine where there are vastly more readers and it seems like only a matter of time until the truth comes out. Takashi has to struggle between protecting his secret while keeping up with the production and erotic creativeness that comes with a weekly magazine series.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
The most interesting this week was Soumatou Kabushikigaisha. The customers histories had interesting twists, and I think the writer is really good at telling a story.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Gamba Fly High - already a famous series so I dont think I have to explain how much it's a great story. Boys/Mens gymnastics story about a talented and determined main character. You can't go wrong picking up this series.

Evil Eater - My summary got kind of long due to the intensive back story of the entire setting, plot but I really enjoyed reading the first couple chapters and it was a shame I couldnt read more of it. If I had to compare, it would along the lines of Soul Eater. Artwork is first to none and the plot, characters, are all great and the author seems to be building up to a really epic series.


My opinion:
Evil Eater sounds pretty interesting - the idea to resurrect someone by sacrificing the life of the murderer. Soumatou Kabushikigaisha also piqued my interest. I wonder how I'd feel if I saw a DVD about my life...


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1
persona_1 - Mahou Shoujo Pretty Bell: Chapter 1





If you haven't done so already, check out the scanlations of the mangas from previous shout outs which have been recently scanlated: ecchi adventure Blade Play (MH link), ecchi comedy Sexual Hunter Riot (MH link), supernatural action comedy Kai Pilgrim (MH link).

Marufuku Kataomoi was utterly cute!!!
A bit of a shame that each story is just somewhat of a one-shot.
I do hope the characters make some kind of reappearance later on!
