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?

Reminded me of mix of Naruto and Bleach XD
Seemed cliche and boring at first but actually surprised me at the end. Cool
Sounds alot like Double Arts.. right?
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.
IMO nice series ^^ form the first chapter i can see it can be good ^^

because the main guy resembles naruto, it already turned me off somewhat =/
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.
