Zetman is a Devilman derivative (or in the case of the original one-shot, an obvious pastiche) that fills the niche of those looking for a darker, sexier superhero comic while retaining some of the camp of the genre, along with character duality reminiscent of a reversed Batman/Superman dynamic. Fans of the slow-burn will enjoy the steady build of the plot, while others may be frustrated at points where it seems to move *too* slow.

Its strongest point lies in its artwork, which will likely keep people reading despite bumps in story construction. The artwork is beautiful and polished, with immaculate attention to detail and anatomy put read more

A perfect blend of Manga and Western style comics about a strange homeless kid with a halo mark on his hand, monsters hidden throughout the city, and the amagi corporation.

Zetman is by no means complicated in its themes just think Devilman meets Batman Beyond all covered and wrapped in the allure of a mystery novel with tons of dark themes regarding superheroes, origins, and ideals.

The action and imagery is realistic, dark, brutal, and unsettling true to the superhero nature of the manga the fights indeed reflect that with dynamic impacts and transformations

The art is highly detailed and gorgeous which is to be expected from Katsura, read more

Zetman is the tragic tale of a destructive man , featuring an underlying theme of justice. You have two main characters Kanzaki Jin , a kind man who is cursed with being a hellish monster , and Kouga Amagi , a literal white knight.

The story is amazing , and if there was any flaws to point out , it was that it's quite complex and a lot of things are happening at once - sometimes multiple flashback sequences occur and you're just like whaaa? Nonetheless , by the end it all made a lot more sense.

The art is extremely detailed , which I very much read more

tl;dr: A manga with interesting themes, characters, and plot threads that just throws them all away at the end.

Zetman is to some degree a manga about super hero origins, but it's more so a manga that explores some of the issues relating to the ethics of super heroes, and hence goes deeper and gets quite a bit darker than most super hero related works. This dark setting works pretty well, and the issues relating to justice and such mostly come through pretty well. The various character relationships were done pretty well too, with Jin and Kagou serving as good foils to one another, and the romantic aspects also being pretty well done for the most part.
