Synopsis

Riding the bus one day, Sakurakouji Sakura looks out the window to see people being burned alive with a blue fire and a boy her age who's unharmed and standing over the people. She comes back to the site the next day and there are no corpses or evidence of any kind of murder, just a small fire. She then goes to class to find there's a new transfer student, Oogami Rei, who looks exactly like the boy she saw before and wears a black glove only on his left hand. Oogami is a Code Breaker, one who "does not exist." He is a seemingly cold-blooded killer who follows the principle of "an eye for an eye," to "use evil against evil." Convinced that killing is not right, Sakurakouji sets out to stop him and penetrate his icy heart.

Background

Code:Breaker was partially published in English by Del Rey Books, who published the first two volumes from July 27, 2010 to October 26, 2010, before they were taken over by Kodansha, and the license was dropped.

Story: There have always been people and there always will be people that will evade laws and slip past justice after committing a crime. For people that have committed serious crimes and escaped unscathed, there is an organization of code breakers to dispose of them. The manga brings up many philosophical ideas of crime and punishment especially of the death penalty and the "can people really change?" debate. Although a very interesting plot at first, I can only give the story an 8 because it is very repetitive and does not present any big plot twists or enough suspenseful moments. I must have heard the read more

This is the story of a guy who judges criminals by his own set of morale principles through a secret government shadow organization. He kills criminals mercilessly and probably in the most painful manner possible.

Quick facts
- Its not gory
-Its mainstream
-its based around a secret government organization
-there are super powers
-its high action

plotline is about the ethics of killing criminals (how far should law enforcement go in punishing criminals). Basically the story is saying "What would it be like if the victim was put first in every situation?" Is this a world you would want to live in? It also argues the read more

Okay here goes nothing. The character with the exception of one, are all likeable. The male lead isn't your typical annoying weak/good goody character. He's constantly killing people which is a plus for me. The character in this manga all have some sort of "ability". Control fire, magnetism, electricity and so forth which you would think makes for some pretty decent fights, but not really. All the fights go one or the other. The lead either completely dominates or completely gets dominated. There is no middle ground, making most of the fight scenes pretty boring. As for the story, well it's not terrible but it read more

I'm writing this review while having in mind that the first manga i have saw was Kyo Samurai Deeper ( Akimine Kamijyo's first manga ). So, I will be a lot more strict about this manga, because I'm thinking that Kamijyo take too much elements from his previous work.

Story : 6/10
The first volume was quite good, with the mysterious blue flame of Ogami Rei, and the notion of justice. But, with the time, he doesn't tell anything new, and a lot of events are predictable because it's following most of the time the rules of shounen manga. Kamijyo takes too much time to reveal read more
