The people of Earth live in a society where vampires aren't just real but dangerous. Although humanity has been able to keep them under control and even take the night away as the vampire's natural habitat, some of them have adapted. Hesperides, a relatively new breed of vampires, have adapted over hundreds of years in order to be able to go outside during dusk when the sunlight is at its weakest and feast on humans.
Aburaya Shiro, a high school kid, lives in a town where there has not been a vampire attack in years, but adults keep warning them of going outside at dusk. Shiro and his classmates take this warning lightly and head out at dusk only to find out one of their classmates who they thought they knew well turnz out to be a Hesperides. With all his classmates violently murdered, the only way Shiro was able to survive was with the help of a different classmate, Ichijoji Eruka, who doesn't seem to be human herself.
Firstly, An Average Manga . This is a Rated R manga because of excessive gore .
What if you told the world around you was totally fake ? What if you were told everyone you told have already died ? How will you comprehend it ?
We have seen these types of plots used quite often , For example in RahXephon or in Trinity Seven , or in very famous movie "The Matrix" . Such a plot generally holds a lot of promise but to execute it is not such an easy job .
And in this department , This manga hasn't performed very well
The manga starts out well enough but it' starting to die out gradually, even if there's only been 8 chapters as of yet , It does not look like the manga will last for too long . The characters aren't very likable as of yet , A wimpy protagonist , plenty of hot girls who are shown be badass but they fail in those respect .
As of now, I haven't seen any real character development , Also the emotional stress of a terrible situation isn't depicted as well . You won't feel the clinging of fear , or even a tad bit of sadness or the gripping action scenes which are also somewhat let down by the intermixing of Ecchi content .
The Plot as a whole seems quite cliched and the antagonists are somehow really hot women , it somehow reminds me of Ikki Tousen , Neither is the action any good , The art is okay and favorite but the action is mostly average at best .
The main pros and cons , I will list below :
+ Fanservice , plenty of it if you like it
+ Excessive Gore , if you like Slaughter
+ Normal art
+ Hot Antagonists
+ Average Action
+ A feeling of "Badass girls"
+ Plot had scope
+ Crazy looking girls and character , if you like that stuff
- Wimpy Protagnist
- Pointless Fan service in battles
- Cliched Plot
- Average Action
- Stupid "Badass girls" giving no thought and rushing in just like they are aiming for suicide
- No Character development ( as of yet )
- Girls can be annoying
- Emotions are both under and over used
- Lame Loli action girl
- Not a very interesting plot direction
- No intellectual battles
- Less depth in character
- Lack of originality in world and environment
Well,in a nutshell ,I would say it can be read ,but it's not very good , An Average read in my opinion .
Crime Zone has a pretty weak main character that seems to be in tears most of the time, but he is put through a lot very quickly. The story isn't super gory, but there are lots of bloody moments. The story line is interesting and intense. The battles take up a fair chunk of the story and the characters are merciless. It's a story where you will bite your nails in shock at some of the extreme moments. It's a good story if you like a strong, determined female character and a normal guy thrust into a crazy situation. I can't wait for more chapters!
