okay this is my first review so...sorry if it sucks.
I think that this manga is way underrated. It's kinda out of the ordinary, a really great read.
The art was different from what I expected. I loved how it was drawn. Somehow the characters seemed more lifelike and vibrant, if that makes sense.

The characters were all well developed. Kohei especially had an interesting story, but wasn't completely focused on it. All the minor characters that came in had their own little story to explain what they were doing and why they were there. All the characters were interesting, and I never got tired read more

This is an "IIP" (Impossible is possible) manga (look it up in my profile under my dictionary for other terms that I use; not shameless advertising). I decided to redo this review btw.

The story is pretty simple. As a matter of fact there isn't a story. It's a series of one shot episodes that hopefully lead up to a climax. Personally, I found the manga's idea to be nice: a guy does make up for people and disguises them.

The art is actually not that bad. I smell Get Backers on it everywhere though. A Brock lookalike appears in this manga only he's buff and awesome. read more

It is like a series of manga chapter one shots in a way, there is always a conclusion in about 1-3 chapters.
The art is extremely good and looks realistic.

It's about Kohei Nagase a young Special Effects Make up artist, and his friend the stuntman Kanazuki. He does various jobs all with different scenarios, very enjoyable ways he uses his sfx skills to save the day, with the help of Kanazuki. Where it be exposing a scandal, disguising celebrities, to saving lives. He always wears a glove on his right hand, suggesting he has something to hide, if you read it, you'll find read more
