Kore ga! Kore ga! Kore ga Baoh da!

Getting that out of the way, well...Baoh. It reads older than dust, and for a good reason, it was created in the middle of the 80s.

Baoh is a shonen manga about a young man, who is kidnapped by an evil organization, in order to infect a incredibly powerful parasite in his body. The plot is nothing too original, luckily enough, it's not the selling point.

Hirohiko Araki is of course incredibly well-known for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, but after getting current on that, I decided to check out one of his earlier works -- Baoh.

The story centers around our main character Ikuro, who is forcibly given superpowers by an evil organization. Thus he is able to transform into Baoh. He escapes with a young girl and then the organization hunts them down until Ikuro eventually makes his way to read more
