Synopsis

Shuuto Katsuragi is a shrimp that can't catch a break. He wants to emulate his favorite super hero, Mr. Thunder, but instead he gets teased all the time for his height and he can't win any fights. The one thing that keeps him going is his love for super heroes, which he shares with his classmate Mirea Mizushima. Little does he know that she's about to make his dreams come true by tricking him into participating in her sister's experiments!

Ratman was a very interesting read given that I was expecting absolutely nothing when I started it and stumbled upon it by accident. The protagonist is your regular fanboy when it comes to superheros, though not your typical antihero when it comes to his actions, given that he is supposed to be a villian, his actions do muh to betray that notion right from the beginning.

The art style in Ratman is fantastic, the designs given to Ratmans costume and the costumes of other heroes serve to highlight their abilities as supeheroes. The supporting combatants to Ratman, wearing the standard evil henchman uniforms, but read more

Preliminary
Shuto Katsuragi is a short guy, but that doesn't stop him from dreaming that he'll someday become a superhero. One day, his wish comes true –- Shuto gets amazing powers and a bad-ass costume, but he's been recruited as one of the 'bad guys.' Where did it all go wrong? But even that wont stop him from trying to be a hero.

With some hilarious tongue in cheek humor, Sekihiko Inui cheerfully skewers Japanese and American superhero comics in Ratman. Sure, it's filled with gratuitous fanservice and crazy comedy, but Ratman also offers some smart, sly satire about the true meaning of heroism in the age read more

Preliminary
Honestly not the best of choices especially if u r kinda new to manga. It's supposed to be a fusion of humor and action, failing in both. The plot seems kinda cliche and the jokes are rarely funny (atleast to me). If you are the more intellectual type this is definitely not for you. The art work though is praise-worthy and is wat drew me to this manga. Expect nothing and u should be able find this entertaining
