Second-year high schooler Tokio Kurohara likes to slack off in class. However, despite his attitude at school, he works alongside his childhood friend Azuma Higashi to combat the brewing injustice in their town. In contrast to Tokio, Azuma is physically capable and rarely struggles against the common thugs the pair regularly encounter.

Yet, there are fights that even Azuma will not pick. Choujins—supernatural beings with powers beyond mere mortals—are entities that Tokio and Azuma avoid at all costs. One day, when a previously defeated thug returns to exact revenge, the two are forced into a scuffle. Unable to flee from their foe, the duo injects themselves with a drug that can turn someone into a Choujin.

While the dose seemingly has no physical effect on Azuma, Tokio grows a beak. In fear of being seen, Tokio must now figure out how to hide his new identity as a Choujin. But it seems that there are people out there that are angry at Tokio and Azuma's use of the Choujin drug, and they do not seem to want to stay quiet about it.

Choujin X has been published digitally as an English simulpub through MANGA Plus. The volumes have been published by VIZ Media under the VIZ Signature imprint since February 21, 2023.

The Sinker Choujin Arc was great, however the true best arc so far has been the Moon Beast arc. Azuma and Tokio's relationship is so painfully beautiful and tragic that it tears away at the readers heartstrings, yet also asks the question of whether it's selfish ...

Preliminary (43/? eps)
Small spoilers regarding a scene in chapter 35.

After two and a half years of publication and 43 chapters, Choujin X has become one of my favorite ongoing manga, and is tracking to be Ishida's greatest work yet. Masterfully executed from head to toe, it's a work clearly borne out of genuine passion from an experienced and incredibly skilled author.

The story revolves around Tokio, an unmotivated kid who comfortably exists in the shadow of his talented best friend, Azuma. This all changes when circumstances result in Tokio becoming a choujin, a special being that manifests powers borne out of an individual's own insecurities and ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (1/? eps)
This first chapter was fair

Story: 6

The story is a kind of a copy of Tokyo Ghoul but with some different concept.

Art: 8

The art is really good, and I didn't expect less from Ishida.
