adventure comedy romance


Rain Jewlitt, known as the Methuselah, is a spaced-out, immortal, 624-year-old man dressed in priest's clothes. He's got eternal youth and a large price on his head ... put there by those questing after the secret of his immortality.

Machika Balfaltin is a tomboyish, energetic 14-year-old girl who, upon the death of her grandfather, sets out to kill Methuselah, the one bounty her assassin grandfather, Zol the Grim Reaper, couldn't kill. Instead, however, Machika ends up being saved by Rain again and again from other aspiring bounty hunters attacking them both.

Well, i don't know what words i should use to describe all the feelings i have while i've been reading this manga. It's outstanding for me! i even held my breath sometimes.
- The Story- The story is wonderful and touching. At the beginning it was quite average, but by the end of the first chapter, i've realised i'm totally captivated by it.
- The Art- Well, tastes different of course, but i loved it. You know, sometimes the picture is pretty and clean, but you cant see and feel all emotions of characters. This manga's art is perfect in that way.
-The Characters- They read more

The story of Immortal Rain is one which captured me from the first page. The serene yet tense atmosphere in the first few pages drew me in instantly. From then on it's full of action, suspense, humour, beauty, romance, symbolism, joy and dispair, regret and hope... All sorts.

The characters are simply superb.The first book allows the reader to get to grips with the personalities of the main two and as the story progresses through the first 4 books, we learn more about Machika and Rain; their backgrounds, their painful memories and hopeful spirits. It makes the two truly enchanting,

The art is, for the read more

So I started reading this thinking i was gonna rate it a 7 and that the story would be interesting but nothing special. I WAS SO WRONG! This is the PERFECT blend of romance and action. The plot never got boring and I couldn't stop reading.

The characters are great. The plot is pretty serious but the author also includes funny things that aren't cheesy. The plot keeps changing so you are never bored but you are still able to follow the story really easily.

This is is like 'Tokyo Crazy Paradise' meets 'Fullmetal Alchemist' meets 'Superior'. Well you might think that maybe my comparison is read more

The summary caught my attention when I was looking to read something different. Even though I personally love a ton of romance in what I read, the small amount and the development of the relationship between Machika and Rain was very well done.

I wish this would really be turned into an anime, as I adore this so much and seeing it animated would make my heart explode with happiness.

I highly suggest this manga and I cannot wait for it's completion (thought part of me wants it to go on forever.. with faster updates as well X3)

Both will draw you in with great stories and even greater characters... both deal with longevity, fighting monsters and close friends/siblings becoming enemies.

And you can't help but notice that Abel and Rain are like inter-dimensional twins XD
They both about a man who is plagued with immortality, trying to find a way to become human again and both meet a girl on their journey and start travelling together. But that's the only thing in common, as they are completely different in feel and genres.
These stories are characters are so similar that you might swear they are simply an alternate universe of each other. Both stories involve a guy character with a huge bounty on his head, who has a dark past involving a girl who has died. Also, both of the guy characters cant die until they meet a certaint person.
If you like Immortal Rain, you will, without a doubt, like Trigun.
The two are so much alike but so incredibly different; They're both about a girl who really has no one in the world, and begins a journey on a male who is basically immortal in a fictional world. Hanatsukihime is pretty short, but Immortal Rain is a rather decent length. If you like one, you'll definitely like the other a lot, too.
Tsubasa wo Motsu Mono and Immortal Rain are so similar to me. You can easily fall in love with the characters and hope for them to have good luck. :) They both have a girl as the main character who is determined to get through life and have some sort of loss in their past. The main charaters also have a travelling companion who has a troubled pasts, and hard to defeat enemies.
They're both about strangers going on a journey together to "change the future", kind of thing.
