Technology has advanced due to the discovery of an alternative source of fuel called "Thunder-Cores." This has changed civilization for the better due to the creation of longer lasting trains and cars, and a new form of transportation called Air-Ships!

The story follows Tatsu Frampt, a young boy who lives in an orphanage nowhere near the city, who dreams that one day he will be the captain of his own air-ship and travel around the world alongside his friends. He is told that he and his friends are being isolated from civilization due to a disease that makes iron grow in their bodies. However, the orphanage is attacked, and Tatsu is the sole survivor, and learns the dark truth of his "disease." Six years later, he embarks on a mission to save his friends, and kill those who stand in his way...

Red Sprite - Sequel to Bleach (?)

Red Sprite (in Japanese, Redo Sprito) is a manga that started in Shonen Jump (SJ) right after Bleach ended, on August 29. By this, people had high hopes for this series and had hoped that Red Sprite (as a title) would become a regular series in the magazine. That didn't happen and so it ended in 15 chapters. Instead of a great/epic series (as main shonen series are supposed to be), what came to the readers was a series that was desperate for the spotlight and didn't realize its full potential.

The beginning of it all happens pretty much as read more

This is more of a first reaction, rather than a full review. I will update it as the story progresses.

Red Sprite is a manga that started in SJ right after Bleach ended, yet it received close to zero hype, thus not many people have heard of it. The author, Yagi Tomohiro, is also relatively new to the manga industry, having only drawn one more series for SJ, which never took off and ended after 20 chapters. It's safe to assume that the expectations for this series are not set too high.

STORY: I was pleasantly surprised by the story. The mangaka has managed to create read more

Well instead of giving my two cents worth about a series such as Tokyo Ghoul or One Punch Man, I’m going to talk about one a lot less known.
Red Sprite is a manga that ran in Shonen Jump for three months late last year. Unfortunately, for creator Tomohiro Yagi, this was his second serialisation to be cancelled without given the appropriate time needed for complete story fruition.
Before I dive into this review, there is one thing I believe we need to take a minute to think about, and this factor is the only background information I’ll take up your time with providing.

Red Sprite. The manga that replaced Bleach's slot in Shonen Jump magazine after it was finished. I had high hopes for this series, and had hoped that Red Sprite would become a regular in the magazine. Sadly that didn't happen, and it was axed after 14 chapters. Instead what we have is a series that was desperate for the spotlight, but did not realize its full potential

Story - 5

The beginning of this series plays out like the beginning of One Piece, and that was promising. Tatsu was meant to embark on an adventure to save every one of his friends while meeting other enemies and read more
