Six years ago, Tsukihiko was caught in an assassination attempt on a little girl, Sami, when he attempted to be her shield. This incident nearly killed him and the girl together, but the little girl was the daughter of an extremely powerful family. With its vast amount of resources, the family was able to keep both Tsukihiko and Sami alive by recreating both of their bodies with cyborg technology. This has forced Sami to permanently rely on wired connection to her life sustaining computer. On the other hand, Tsukihiko has become a cyborg "Knight," sworn to protect Sami from harms way.
The premise of the manga is good, probably even interesting, which could've lead to some interesting reactions between the charatcters, but the bland execution of the plot kind of spoils the few good bits.
The story is very simple, and short, and if you've seen some shounen manga before, then you certainly won't be surprised. The author had tried to do some world building, but considering the lenght of the manga, it's did not bear any fruit, but that could've been because of production issues.
The artstyle is pretty nice, most of the character design is good and distinguishable between each other, also the
effects when the characters are using their powers are made really interesting and enjoyable to watch.
As for the characters, even if the author had to rush the story, their established personalities would have certainly ruined them for me, they are very bland and can be explained with just one sentence each, and they more serve their purpose to move the story, than to give off the feel like they exist within the manga's established universe. Also there is the problem of having way too many characters who are here for a chapter, and then they're forgotten forever.
I had good expectations, from the start, since having around 10 chapters doesn't mean you can't deliver a short and satisfying story, but the way this manga was constructed in mind with it's factions, power levels, and so on suggested that it would've been a long running title. Instead the story is almost non-existent, characters does something, there are some fights here and there, and it ends.
As for finale, I'd say I don't recommend this title to anyone, it has way more issues to really be an enjoyable and satisfying read. Maybe if you do enjoy your shounen tropes and you feel like you have a bit of time to lose, try it out.
I liked this manga, it was short and enjoyable. Characters are simple and fun, MC is the genki/baka/chill guy, female lead is cute and reasonable. Story was rushed of course, all the details about everything are left to reader's imagination.
It feels like author had some thoughts about how he would continue to expand plot of this manga, but some circumstance(publisher, probably) left him with no choice but to wrap up his story short.
It would be interesting to see his other works.
Read if you care more about characters and fun more than complex story and details.
Art is simple and cute, sometimes in battle scenes shows
good expressive drawing styles.
8/10 for me.
tl;dr: A manga that has an interesting world and interesting main duo, but that ended too quickly.
This manga seems like a good start, but didn’t manage to get anywhere. It has an interesting main character and heroine, in that they pretty much had a strong relationship from the first chapter, and with Tsukihiko being oblivious and Sami being adorable it was quite amusing. It doesn’t really have enough time to do much with it though. The side characters like Tsukihiko’s sister or the transfer students from Ryoujin seemed like they could be interesting too if it focused on them more, but it never got a chance to. There was actually a pretty solid
amount of world building and what was built up I liked the style and structures of, and felt like it allowed for a lot of cool action and intriguing plot lines, but that too never got a chance to be used. The action was pretty solid to and it introduced some cool systems, but it never got a chance to do anything with them. The plot too was going in an interesting direction using all of this, but then it just abruptly ended. The art was also good, but it didn't feel like there were enough shots that used it well. If it isn’t clear yet, I overall liked pretty much everything about it, other than the fact that it ended too soon.
