Handsome, successful, and talented, detective Hiroki Dan has it all. Each investigation solved is another good deed to add to his pile of closed cases. However, while his work is fulfilling, there are still times when he becomes frustrated; the police are helpless when vile people are beyond the reach of the law. It is for this very reason that Hiroki takes matters into his own hands.

An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, Hiroki exacts twisted justice on the dredges of society, one "good deed" at a time.

Preliminary (7/19 eps)
I'd give this a 9/10 because i really love crazy stuff like this, it's very graphic and violent.

Preliminary (8/19 eps)
Art: 10/10
No issues with the art, I honestly really enjoyed it.

Character: 9/10
I love the main character, he reminds me heavily of light yagami in a sense. His way of going about his "moral code" or something of the other was extremely interesting.

Story: 10/10
Honestly, I was conflicted when I came to the end of this manga. I didn't know what was right and what was wrong, I was left wondering if my perception of the characters was even right, what morals really are and just how vile can humans be. It left me reeling and rethinking things in all the right ways. The plot/story, for ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (17/19 eps)
I'm biased towards aesthetically pleasing art styles and hot ikemen. The art is probably the only salvation of this manga and heightens the experience considerably. If the art was not so good, I would probably rate it a 3, because the rhyme and reason of the plot feels like it was written by a middle schooler. There is too much exposition and deus ex machina as with a lot of animanga nowadays (supposedly forgivable however, given the episodic nature); the villains are extremely one-dimensional to the point of their cruelty being unrealistic; the build-up to graphic, cathartic scenes do not live up to anticipation. Therefore, ...
