View Full Version : Shounen Luck Stealer by Kazu Hajime

November 14, 2007, 09:55 AM
Luck Stealer is a new series in the newly launched JUMP SQ! It follows from previously printed one-shot stories that appeared in Akamaru JUMP (Winter 2005) and JUMP the Revolution (2005). The series is about a man called the Luck Stealer. When he touches a person with his bare hands, he will steal that person's "luck" and cause the victim to die by way of "coincidences". The only person who is immune to his touch, and in fact, benefits from it, is his young daughter, Karin. When Kurusu Yuusei, the Luck Stealer, kills others by taking away their luck, does he do it for justice, or is there more to his unique powers?

I'm looking for the one-shot from Akamaru JUMP (Winter 2005). If anyone has it, please share! :)

Nice. It's weird that it's getting a series just after I read the one-shot. Shueisha seems to be starting a lot of series based off of one-shots they published 2 or 3 years ago in Jump SQ and Weekly Shonen Jump. Either way, I desperately hope that this and Tegami Bachi get scanlated on a regular basis.

very interesting Manga and story. SQ has many good series already :)

BTW why does this guy look like Roxas from Kingdom hearts? he even has a similar pendant XD
well maybe it was the other way around ^^

Well, the story is cool (someone who steals luck) but still I wonder where it will go to -> the style/genre I mean (mistery? action?)
