Living in the slums of a wealthy town, Rudo and his foster father Legto try to coexist with the rest of the town's residents, but Rudo despises the wastefulness of the upper class. Ignoring the warnings from those around him, Rudo regularly rummages through the town's garbage in search of anything useful or valuable to save from the "Abyss"—a massive hole where anything considered trash is dumped, including people. Rudo's biological father was one such person, having been thrown into the Abyss after he was accused of murder.

One day, after running into a mysterious figure on the way home, Rudo returns to find Legto's dying body on the floor. He is immediately found at the scene by the authorities and is charged with murder. No one believes his claims of innocence, and he is thrown into the Abyss. Instead of dying, however, he finds himself in a strange, foul-smelling place surrounded by monsters made out of trash.

When Rudo is attacked by said monsters, he is saved by a man named Enjin, who reveals himself to be a "janitor"—someone who uses special weapons called "jinkis" to combat these creatures. In order to get his revenge on the one who killed Legto, Rudo reluctantly becomes a janitor to fight his way back up and out of the Abyss.

Preliminary (3/? eps)
Okay so Gachiakuta is a newly released weekly manga that I started reading from the release of the very first chapter. So far (7th march 2022) there are only 3 chapters of it total. Not much content has been released so I won't be able to review it in the best way but nevertheless, here it is:-

Gachiakuta is a shonen manga that really has a unique concept. It's literally about "Trash and Garbage". The protagonist's name is Rudo and he seem to be really poor and barely makes up with his daily needs to survive. Rudo is pretty much outcasted by most of people and ...

Preliminary (6/? eps)
Weekly Shonen Magazine has a heater on its hands, really, this manga is absolute gas.

Coming from the successor to genius mangaka Atsushi Ohkubo, Gachi Akuta bashes its way into Weekly Shonen Magazine's pages, with its incredible world building, loveable characters, and insane potential.

The story (or the 6 chapters of story that we get so far) is great. The premise is unique enough with a world based in trash and filth. It makes for a very grimy aesthetic that I honestly really enjoy. Soul Eater and Fire Force make clear their influence, along with other series like The Promised Neverland. The narrative is very ...

Preliminary (21/? eps)
I heard about Gachiakuta because apparently Urana Kei was an assistant on Fire Force. This leaves Gachiakuta with big devils footprints to fill. Thankfully it lives up to the standard of Ookubos works.

The first 3 chapters are the strongest point of the manga. Right after Rudo is dropped into the abyss countless questions will rush through your head. Questions that will not be answered immediately, rather rudo first has to join a group and learn the combat system in and out. Obviously. Here the artwork of the manga really shines. Overtly stylized character designs rendered to be as ugly and unrecognizable as humanly possible. Despite ...
