Bolt Crank travels the world as the World's Greatest Mercenary. He got that moniker due to his skills, as well as his ability to eat anything, and then reproduce it in his right hand. During his adventures he meets new friends, as well as his rival Hard. But, his mysterious past with a man named Leon Field comes into play later on when Shadow, a man who can control machines and calls himself Bolt Crank, and Stella, a woman who wants to mechanize every human on the planet, has Bolt going back to an old, unfinished mission he left behind long ago.

Well this is my first review, and I just had to do one knowing there isn't one yet.
Pardon this if it's bad or just unsatisfactory.


So we first meet our protagonist, Bolt Crank. He's our protagonist that has the ability to eat anything and is able to conjure the item he's eaten from within' himself (usually his hands). He's an adventurer that has the title of "World's Greatest Mercenary" and you see him have a new adventure every few chapters.

Eat-Man in a nutshell:

Inspector gadget but it's upgraded version, in a fantasy - sci-fi world.

Outstanding mecha drawings.

If you are familiar with, it tastes like Osamu Tezuka's black jack with stories ending up in heartwarming results and ninjas cutting onions in your room.

Extra notes.

There are many nudi-titties in the manga. Considerably in an aesthetic sense more than sexual. But you may still not want to read this manga in your work environment, with your family or in a public place.

And if you are too sensitive about little plot holes, you may have some little problems with this manga.
