Shintarou Jagasaki is an average neighborhood police officer who hates his job and ordinary life. Though he acts goofy around others and plans to marry his girlfriend in the near future, Shintarou secretly fantasizes about shooting those who annoy him with a gun—much like his hero, the town's eggplant mascot, does.

The daily monotony Shintarou hates so much is interrupted when he witnesses a gruesome murder committed by a man with the face of a monster. When the creature kills his partner, Shintarou's mind is filled with the ways he has wasted his whole life. But as he accepts his impending death, he unwillingly fires a deadly projectile from the top of his fingers at the attacker.

With his arm now permanently coated in a mysterious material, Shintarou is told by a spectating owl that the now dead monster was once human. He was affected by a "Mad Xenopus," a frog-like creature that takes control of its host and changes its physical body. Shintarou initially ignores the creatures' existence. However, after one of them takes control of his soon-to-be wife, he decides to fight and eradicate the former humans to survive.

so i walked into the bookstore and asked for a seinen recommendation, this was what the store clerk handed me and after reading the first volume i just couldn't stop.

jagasaki is a really relatable character, facing the troubles of the world and learning to get by and live his life, but that doesn't mean it's a fulfilling one. the constant dreams of changing his life around, quitting his job, living an extraordinary life instead of a common one if a really relatable sentiment. as the plot thickens and the world around him changes drastically we get to see him evolve as a person and learn ...

Mixed Feelings
Keeping it real, the first 67 or so chapters of Jagaan are some of the best written chapters out there. 9/10 Read. Unfortunately, after this point the manga becomes complete dogwater. Straight up. How it's written, plot design, character motivation, even how its drawn- everything seems to fall off after the aforementioned point. If you are planning on reading this manga, please don't be surprised when everything suddenly takes a turn for the not good. The fact that this series started out so strong makes it hurt that much more. I still firmly believe you should give it a read and formulate your own opinion ...

Preliminary (104/163 eps)
If you looking for harsh and wild action like chainsaw man or DRHDR, don't get fooled by this kinda relevant exterior. A story is so stupid and a characters is so empty, that even double amount of gory mutant fights can not fix it. You'll be disappointed AF.

MAL wants me to write more, so:

A story is completely predicteble superheroic shit. You may wait for it's evolve somehow, but it'll want.

Art style is kinda cool, but its only for decieve you and lure into the depth of stupidity.

Main character promises to be antihero, but but then turns into boring moralist with far-fetched banal ...
