Akatsuki by Motoki Koide is an ongoing series serialized in Shounen Rival starting from February 2009 Issue onwards.

Akatsuki; the powerful demon of illness which will spread into the victim, turns their eyes red, and slowly kill them. Usually, they take form or a strong monster connected to the victim's body. The only way to cure the victims infected with Akatsuki is to slash the victim body with special anti-Akatsuki weapons, known as "Crave". The group of people who possess and use these weapons are called as "Kiri-Isha" (Slash Doctor)

Hibiki, the protagonist of this story, is the Kiri-isha. He partnered with Kirisa, another Kiri-Isha. Their mission is to cure people infected with Akatsuki, but what could possibly lies ahead of them?

Seemed cliche and boring at first but actually surprised me at the end. Cool

The world has some great possibilities, and it sort of reminds me of Monster Hunter. I was a little disappointed at the end of the fight, but I still have hope for this manga. I'm damned tired of the impulsive, stupid, aggressive shounen lead who leaps before he looks, though - Hibiki. His resemblance to Naruto is salt in the wound.

If there was a translation up, I might consider scanning it.

A so-so manga so far. A disappointing fight actually, was hoping for a bigger bang for a first impression.

Look's pretty interesting, and the art's very cool along with the concept. I think it has prospects.

if i got translations i can put it together and release the first chapter

So... Naruto with a sword runs around with some chick fighting slimy monsters of some sort.. To be honest, from reading the raw, it doesn't seem all that great. The art is pretty cool and all, but the story and concept seems really cliché and it's all been done before. I'll give it another shot if someone releases a scan, though.

I'm sorry but I think the main character resembles Naruto too much. Don't get me wrong, I like Naruto... that's why I dislike them being so similar.

I'm going to wait for the scans though.

i'm currently cleaning it if anyone wants to translate it it'd help me alot ^-^

I'd really like a translated version, can't read kanji for shit :p
Read half the RAW before I decided to wait for a translation. Seemed cool enough imho :)

Didn't seem that interesting at all. Naruto+Bleach+Double Arts. I'd rather take double arts back :( Also with how he drank the demon and became one to fight back...it kinda reminded me of the one the rejected story ideas that the guys came up with in Bakuman

You can find out what happened now since I've posted a translation of the first chapter.

I love this, and yes it's going to be like a bunch of battle shounen manga because that's the genre it's in. That's ok, I like that genre and don't mind more of it. And I do kinda wish the main character didn't look so much like Naruto. But he doesn't act like Naruto, and the heroine isn't annoying like Sakura so I find it very entertaining. Also whoever is doing the backgrounds is awesome.

I hope this gets scanlated more
