Due to an accident at her father's scientific research institute, Kay, an ordinary teenager, is forced to become the owner of "Machina," a strange shaped sword with the power to capture human souls. Kay now fights against freakish fiends in a world of "Images," a horrible place formed by each character's imagination. In this world of "Images," values are confused: enemies become friends, good becomes evil, and vice-versa. Kay must continue her battle in a place called "5 Minutes into the Future."

Based off of the Maken X video game for the Dreamcast.

Mixed Feelings
I suppose I will be the first review for this series

I of course read this as I enjoyed Dai Dark and Dorohedoro. This series has similar artwork, and a grim story to match the amazing illustrations. The story comes across as a tad convoluted, but it still has high parts. For a 3 volume manga, this has a lot of ideas that I feel could be more fleshed out with a longer story. The length is my one critique overall though, as I would recommend any fans of Hayashida to give this a shot.

I will add that while the illustration may be the main draw ...
