Meet Mon, a violent killer faithful only to his own eruptive desires, and his timid companion Toshi, a demolition-devil with a fanatical thirst for destruction. Their killing-spree across Japan is destined to intersect the path of the enormous "Higumadon", a mysterious beast on a Godzilla-like rampage from Hokkaido to Tokyo.

The World Is Mine (known by the fanbase as TWIM) is a 1997 manga written by Hideki Arai. The work never had the recognition it deserves in the West, although, currently, it has been widely commented on. Aiming in participating of this promotion, I decided to write this review (which by the way is my first) about one of the best pieces of fiction I've ever experienced. If, based on that, I manage to convince at least one person to read this manga, I'll already feel happy.

First of all, it's important to read more

TLDR: Do not read this manga. In 5 words, that is what my review tells you. This isn't the hidden gem you think it is. There is a very good reason this is not widely popular.

This obviously is my opinion, but I think that you will be disappointed if you are read more

I am gonna start by saying that i will definitely suggest you to read this manga, its a great read that doesnt have boring parts. Now lets get more specific. When i found this manga i was searching for a manga that hand violence and interesting characters, something similar to Ichi, TWIM was exactly what i was searching for.

Story 8/10: The story isnt anything too impressive but its still really good. It follows two storylines, one that focuses on Mon-Toshi(the protagonists) and one that focuses on Higumadon(a giant bear), and the results their action have to the world. I wont go any further because i read more

For the vast majority of this series, which, adding up to 163 total chapters, takes no small amount of time to finish, the scenes and the characters shine through the page and allow you to simply sit back and enjoy it like you would with any high-tension Hollywood blockbuster. Indeed, much of this manga feels like the stereotypical action movie with all of the traditional values turned upside-down. The main character is often mute, extremely unpredictable, and given to fits of violence. The sidekick is a nervous kid with an aptitude for explosives and a wavering sense of morality. The hook is that meanwhile, a read more
