The end of the civil war signaled the start of the industrial revolution in the United States and immigrants from all over the world traveled to find their American dream. But what awaited the majority of them was poverty, discrimination and hopelessness. Manhattan, New York was full of immigrants flooding through the ports and the 6th district, Five Points, was considered at the time, the world's worst slum. The mobsters corrupted the entire area, including the police by paying them off; Five Points was the mob's territory and they were the law.

But even in Five Points, where there seemed to be nothing but robbery, prostitution and murder, showed some signs of hope. Luke Burns was a honest and righteous teenager who realized that the mob was the cause of the harsh lifestyle and that joining the mobsters would not bring him the American dream. But his older brother, Brad Burns, had become the assassin to the biggest mob group of Five Points, the Grave Diggers, a secret he kept from Luke for his own protection. Brad was known as the Grim Reaper and his reputation preceded him as a ruthless and skilled killer.

This is simply a very solid piece of work and it's worth reading. Here's what you'll get:

1) a rather unique "Old West" setting with a strong focus on portraying the harsh reality of trying to make a living in the young United States

2) a story of brotherhood, revenge and the pursuit of happiness, which is not exactly new or unique, but very well exercised here.

3) fantastic art that manages to illustrate the atmosphere of the story perfectly

4) a concise story that proceeds from start to finish without any major filler episodes. Instead, the plot moves forward rather swiftly and you'll find yourself read more

Is like another one of your average classic Old West movies. Big brute who runs around slaughtering people in order to that kill one dude to exact his vengence but has no idea where he is. Younger brother who thinks his older brother (the big brute) is a good-for-nothing jackass. Shit goes down and suddenly the bad guy comes in. Bad guy f*cks the peace of the town and suddenly there is a gunfight. Bad guy runs away, some random dude gets executed for the gunfight and the brothers unite and chase after the bad guy into the sunset. *sigh* is it not cliché?

But...its good. read more

The story begins with our dear friend Assassin-kun, you know, killing people like he always does and the thing is, he is a brooder.

So what is our brooding hero brooding over?

Whether he's doing the 'right' thing [by killing people mercilessly] and if he is in a 'good' field of work (didn't he know that the assassin-field is highly regarded by the nation's children?). So anyway, between the entirely cliché and sappy inner workings of the protagonist, you see some blood-spatter, knifings and guts being punctured.


The story wasn't all that bad.

The plot is reader-friendly and a wider audience (of less bloodthirsty people) might like read more

I've seen debates about the naming of this manga. I feel its worth mentioning that Green refers to Irish and Blood to gangs (I'd assume).

Now onto the relatively short tale of revenge.

Story- 6

The story takes place in the USA, during the industrial revolution. Immigrants are flooding into the country which has led to the 6th District of New York, known as the Five Points being considered the worlds worst slum and is an area which is completely under the control and the law of various Irish gangs.

There isn't much room for development with it being short, add 40-50 more chapters and I'd read more
