In a world where various plant seeds are cultivated for unique purposes—such as to instantly start fires, create materials similar to rope, or send signals from a distance—rare seeds are sought after. In order to maintain economic and political stability, the National Grainelier Special Education and Research Institute holds exclusive rights to grow and research seeds and also polices the use of seeds that can be ingested by humans. These seeds transform people into "carriers," making them more similar to plants than humans and granting them dangerous powers.

Following the death of his mother, Luca Anglade lives alone with his reclusive father Christophe. Both father and son illegally grow seeds, but whereas Luca sells his seeds in order to afford their living expenses, the goal of Christophe's experiments is a mystery. One night, a Grainelier security team arrives and attempts to arrest Christophe. He commands Luca to swallow a handful of seeds and then flee, but Luca is barely able to get a safe distance away before losing consciousness. When he wakes up, he finds himself in the home of his childhood friend, Abel Guivarch, who informs him that two years have passed—but Luca does not appear to have aged a day since that fateful night.

Now...on to review!

Lucas has swallowed the seed that his father gave him and after that he becomes part plant.
Many are afraid of these people because they do not know what kind of abilities they have.
That's why he is now persecuted and need to stay hidden.
What will happen to Lucas? What are his abilities? Who is girl that appeared before ...

Preliminary (47/? eps)
Graineliers is a relatively promising manga, with a rather interesting concept of seeds and plant growing. 47 chapters in and I don't really know where the story will go from here - but the concept interests me enough and I think it has the potential to go in various interesting directions from here.

The art is as I expected, nice. I do like the character designs too, but the similarity of hair can sometimes get confusing to me if I don't pay attention and the colours are similar. However, as I said I really do like the general art and designs and I think it is ...
