EDIT: Just read the first volume. Cool stuff. Haven't seen too many stories where protagonist is actually a criminal from hell with an "opportunity" to get out, although it looks more like Hell is just using him. Kinda reminds me of Ghost Rider in a way (Marvel character who's pretty much going thru the same thing right now).

Wow, didn't know about this series but looks great. I'll try it for sure.
Thanks for the info!
Edit: Read the 1st volume: I think it's too dark for me, but it's a good manga anyway.

I Read the 1st volume in Indonesia and I'm trying to find more
Featured complete... ehm... cancelled/dropped... shounen manga of Decembr
I can't believe this actually got dropped. It's a damn sweet manga. I read it ages ago, but it's still one of the better Shounens I've read.
Indeed, it's really hard to believe.
I'm also positive that the remaining story (without introducing any new chars and issues) could have been resolved within two more volumes in a satisfying way (maybe even slightly rushed within one). So, it's all the more hard to understand to me why he couldn't finish it in a proper way ._.
This could easily be picked up by the author again and completed :3 I wish he'd do it.
What else has he made?
Yes, he could pick up anytime again but since the following series was dropped as well, I have not much hope that he'll ever does ._.
Well, Togari is from 2001, Kurozakuro from 2004 (also dropped) and recently in early 2008 a Batman mini series for DC Comics.
I would like to say that Natsume decided to create a sequel to Togari.
It is being serialized in Monthly Comic Flapper, for those who wanted to know.
The sequel is to be known as Togari: Shiro.
