People tend to forget a lot of important stuff in this manga but still, it works. It works out great actually. I read it in two looong sessions and nearly overslept today because of that (nearly!).

Story: 8
The story focuses on two different main themes - drugs on the one hand and amnesia on the other. It starts off showing us two rookies at the Matori department. Seemingly unrelated cases force them to dig deeper and deeper through the rubbish of the underworld and thus they find themselves mixed up in events related to both their pasts.
Soon you get the feeling that you're read more

ok since no one has written a review about this yet i guess ill be the one to do so. well ok lets start off

story - (8) its ur average shounen cop manga even though its not like most it has a twist. the main character Kai Eto has a split personality when he's in a life or death situation.

characters - (9) Ok the characters are the best part about this manga. They really did a good job of making the characters improve and learn from there mistakes. Id have to read more

So I was just going through mangas, searching for something interesting and I happen to come across this picture of these two guys.I was mostly attracted to the the art and just by that I grabbed my chance to read the synopsis.It didn't take me much time to convince that this one was a Must.Read criteria.I haven't had much experience reading mangas which are action packed but this one took me on one hell of a ride.

This story follows around Kai Eto who has just joined Narcotics Control Division in Japan.He is sweet,kind and cheerful person .But behind that gentleness something much darker is hidden.His read more

Switch could easily be an astonishing manga if it had better art.

The story is very good, especially when it comes to the main plot concerning the 2 protagonists and their past. There is suspense and as you get closer to the end you'll have already gotten pretty invested in those characters (the two main ones, that is) so the climax is all the more intense. My main complaint with the story would be the filler chapters. There's quite a lot of it, and in pivotal moments too. For example, I remember reaching a cliffhanger at some point and after that the next couple of chapters read more
