THIS IS A MANGA ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS ANYTHING BEYOND THIS CHAPTER.
----------------------------------------
Prince and the pauper with super powers in space. It's been a while since I read a first chapter that good!

I hope the author manages to make this one last

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.

Now that is assuming it doesn't get cancelled.

Not bad. It could become a good story with time.

The failure I see in this manga is that the artwork is too comic for such serious story. But it didn't matter at all, as long as the story follow the true path and doesn't transform in a comedy.

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!

My speculations...
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.

This is going to be one of my favourites. I just KNOW it!

I loved this chapter, 9/10.

The art is like a mix of Ao no Exorcist + Blood Lad + Soul Eater.

The theme of the manga reminds me of "the Prince and the Pauper," except with a dystopian feel.

Great! There's definitely something that I miss from most Manga that is definitely here. It could be awesome

Well that escalated quickly, regarding the true prince.

"I have to find a job soon"
"I just found one" Lol.

Really like the premise of the series so far but the number of chapters worries me a bit...

I hope they at least flesh out the main characters well in regards to their pasts and roles.
