In a world where rare metals drive the economy, "Minea", the people who seek out these metals at the risk of their own life, are highly respected. A strange boy called Ruka has wandered destructively into the failing town of Elza, declaring that his goal is to be a Minea! He ends up under the surveillance of a village girl, Shella, whose little brother is sick from a poison gas accident in the town's now-closed mine. But there may be more to this situation than meets the eye! Will Ruka be able to help his new friends, and maybe one day become a legendary Minea?

I liked the manga to be honest. I'm not the kinda guy to get that turned off of cliches. It looked like it had the potential to take off, but WSJ isn't exactly a place where sub-par manga gets a free ride.

In my honest opinion I think the author should start the manga from scratch with another publisher with new ideas. I think it was just a rookie mangaka who screwed up and needs a second chance. There was definitely potential in the manga, I think anyone could see that, but the cliches killed it before it had a chance read more

With this manga being canceled, I found it fitting to rewrite my review.

Metallica Metalluca had good promise. It never reached it's potential.

The art is what you'd expect from a shonen manga. Inventive monsters, nice background and good character design. It's nothing too beautiful, but it looks good.

The characters, although they might be a bit standard, are fun. Doesn't change the fact that it's still a goofy main characters, a sexy girl and a wimpy sidekick.

The story. Where to begin about the story. A boy with a dream, having to take an exam first. It's cliché. At first I thought it would pick up, get its read more

Metallica Metalluca (or as I like to call it "The Thing That Should Not Be") is a shounen manga by amateur mangaka Teruaki Mizuno. It was the mangaka's first published work that he released in 2010. Usually, the debut work of an artist is their most important, since it can be very hard to Escape from a work if it turns out to be Some Kind of Monster. It can leave you Broken, Beat and Scarred both mentally and critically. Sadly, this is exactly what happened to Teruaki's debut manga, which ended up being like Cyanide to his career.

Now I'm not one to jump read more
