Akira Nikaidou is a typical slacker high school student who thinks he has a normal life until a mysterious man called Shirogane appears and tells him to meet him at the school that night. He is skeptical but goes anyway...and gets attacked by a shadow monster! Shirogane convinces him that the balance between the human world and the shadow world has been distorted, and that Akira must become a shin, a creature of the shadow world, in order to help restore the balance.

Preliminary (Unknown/65 eps)
Overall: 10!
Read this manga.

Character: 9
Reminds me a lot of naruto, or atleast with the characters.
You have Shurogane (kakashi), Homurabi (orochimaru), Akira (sasuke), Aya (sakura), and Kengo (naruto). The characters seem a bit shallow and stereotyped, without the amount of in-depth experience I would expect from something like.....Pandora Hearts, for instance.

Story: 9
Original, but it skips a bit, with minimal backstory and lack of emphasis.
