UQ Holder
Volume 1


Twelve-year-old Touta Konoe has spent his whole life in a rural town. He dreams of one day going to the capital, where there is a tower that reaches into space. To fulfill his dream, he has been tasked to defeat his teacher and caretaker, Yukihime, who will then permit him to go to the capital.

Touta's life turns upside down when a bounty hunter arrives to claim a prize on Yukihime's head. In a desperate attempt to save both his mentor and friends, Touta follows Yukihime's instruction to drink her blood, turning him into an immortal monster capable of defeating the bounty hunter.

Yukihime reveals herself to be Evangeline Athanasia Katherine McDowell, a centuries-old vampire. With her identity now exposed, she and Touta flee to the capital and embark on an exciting adventure that will change both of their lives forever.

Which made me avoid it even until now, because I couldn't stand supposedly great manga that can't help but ruin their stories with terrible ecchi.

Couple of weeks ago, I discovered UQ Holder, recommended to me (didn't know about that whole Negima relation thing for a time). It was pretty nice. I would rate it an 8/10 a couple of days ago. A tale of dreams, adventure, and friendship. A standard shounen and a ...

If you all haven't heard, Ken Akamatsu finally won a senate seat not too long ago. Akamatsu-sensei has been a part of my life since more than a decade back, and seeing that he was holding firm on this copyright thing even back then, it just opened my eyes to how passionate this guy has been about all of this all along. It also saddens me that Negima got axed early for this very reason, squashing what could've been an all-time great shonen before it ever had its time in the limelight. But if nothing else, we should all pay some respect to the fact ...
