Most normal humans use only 30% of their brains, but a group of people known as the "Dokeshi" can use 50 to 60% of their brains, and thus have special abilities. These powers, however, come with a price: the Dokeshi must observe certain restrictions. Ignoring these rules can lead to the loss of something precious from within. In young Shotaro's case, he has to stick to doing one good deed every day! In the central town of Toykyo, he meets a girl named Mana, and together they go on a journey to find Shotaro's childhood friend Emine. Will Shotaro be able to do good daily or will he succumb to laziness on his journey?

B.Ichi the same story and art by Ohkubo Atsushi the person behind Soul Eater, after reading it I found it very assuming, once again Ohkubo Atsushi's hilarious ideas has stuck against me again... what I can see is that the main character Shotaro reminds me of Black Star when he exclaims 'Whoo-Hyoo'! And another character named Mana remminds me a lot of Maka... indeed fans of Ohkubo Atsushi must enjoy this as much as Soul Eater
