Jirou Azuma is descended from of a long line of shinobi, and he also can talk to animals. Although he may appear rough and tumble, his compassionate side emerges when it comes to furry critters. But Jirou's soft spot for animals gets him in major trouble when a suspicious stray cat fuses with him, granting him exceptional power but also dragging him into humanity's hidden battle against powerful, menacing spirits.

His resemblance to Bleach made me create a kind of "tie" with this manga. The art is very pleasing and its universe provides a rewarding experience.

This does not exclude the amount of clichés and empty characters in some issues.

I hoped that Jirou's growth would come from his relationship with his grandfather, which really put me down. But still, his ability to act in pairs with Ragou leaves the reader content, for one does not nullify the other's abilities...

I hoped that the relationship between Ichika and Jirou would grow into maturity for both of them, but the support they gave to the supporting character through read more

Black Torch! A manga I picked up when the first chapter came out because I heard that it strongly resembles Bleach. I loved Bleach but it got really bad afterwards, so if a manga that has Bleach vibes just came out, Why not pick it up? And my decision turned out to be a correct one!

While not something "VERY" original, it's still pretty darn intresting. A boy who can understand animals saves a cat who he later finds out is a legendary Momonoke that has beeen sealed away for a long time. After a couple of events our MC Azuma Jirou acquires the read more

Most of the people will say that Black Torch is Similar to Bleach , Yes it is similar.

some of the characters are exactly same and at first it seems very predictable like bleach fights, but its not like that ,this Manga is full of surprises and I think this is one of the best arts I've seen and it's just keeps getting better.
The manga follows a story about a boy named Jiro in the Universe where exists not only humans but also mononokes. Later you will se how jiro connects to a mononoke , I don't want to spoil you so see the rest yourself read more

Mangwha such as Black Torch have always attracted me for its blend of warrior action, culture, and mythology. Recently I finished reading the first issue of Black Torch and found it to be a perfectly well established mangwha that has the potential to outclass Bleach and Naruto. The story has been superb and the writer delivers readers with a consistency in novelty and creative ingenuity. The art is unique on its own and complements the story very well, each panel and shot of the comic flows well with each setting to deliver to readers an articulate concept of the situation and mood. The author goes read more
