Prince and the pauper with super powers in space. It's been a while since I read a first chapter that good!
I was a fan of Oumagadoki Doubutsuen so it's nice to see something new by the author, but I found this opening chapter a bit...boring. Usually a new Jump series has something that leaves me wanting to know what happens next, but it came off a bit weak. I know it's the first chapter and all, so I will continue to follow it and see what happens.
Not a very good 1st chapter in itself but it has what's most important for any manga in its first couple of chapters: potential to grow a lot. I can indeed see a fair amount of potential here. Let's hope the mangaka has a steady idea for a recurring plot that leads us through the story (pretty much like any good shounen battle manga) instead of just relying on episodic arcs all the way through (kind of like Magico where you can't really understand where the mangaka wants to take the story). With something like that coupled with a good exploration of the world and all the gimmicks the quirky setting of the manga allows, I think we can have a pretty good one here.
Hope this starts a shounen boom about alien fights.
This was a really great read. I hope the author express the manga to its full potential.
The art style is like of Blue Exorcist with a mix of Magico/Soul Eater twist.
It also gives the vibe of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann!
I bet the real prince will come back in the far future as some kind of a hermit/sage character or a completely evil character.
And if this ever gets anime in the very far future, I think that Tiamat should be voiced by Kazuya Nakai, the voice behind Roronoa Zoro and Hijikata Toshirou.
