In a world where anyone can just shoot themselves in the head to get rid of a cold, resurrection is what defines being human. Those who can't resurrect themselves, known as Vectors, are diagnosed with Resurrection Deficiency Syndrome (RDS), and are either killed or incarcerated by the police. Some escape artists help these individuals get away from the authorities and give them new identities, but combating immortal foes is not an easy task.

Rin is one of these escape artists tasked with saving Vectors whose identities have been compromised. She faces Detective Kenzaki, head of the anti-Vector task force. Kenzaki despises Vectors for causing the death of his little sister, and will stop at nothing to catch them. This is a fight between police and escape artists, between immortals and mortals. The winner is far from certain, but one thing is for sure—it will be bloody!

- Over-the-top: this isn't really a category, but it's worth mentioning for this, the action scenes are very over-the-top and not realistic at all.
- Drama: despite its over-the-top nature, there isn't much comedy outside of that, it tends to have a more serious tone. There's one character that tends to do silly stuff, but he doesn't get much panel time.

Preliminary (7/54 eps)
I randomly happened to pick this one up during my “walk through” the bookstore a.k.a 3hr book hunt. I’d never heard of this fairly newly released book before, the mangaka a.k.a author or the manga itself, but I decided the bad-ass looking cover coupled with the interesting title made it worth checking out, though to be honest I actually thought it wouldn’t be interesting enough for me to want to keep it. I was wrong. This was a really good read that exceeded my expectations on every point. The characters weren’t bland, the plot, though consisting of themes not entirely original, wasn’t at all generic ...
