Synopsis

There's nothing. There's no one. There's a boy...

Teppei was just a normal, good-hearted kid who loved and idolized his father, a policeman, and aspired to become like him. He had friends at school, even a girl he liked. However, all this was thrown away on the day the world changed forever.

On that day, several people, mostly criminals and scum, inexplicably transformed in monsters; demons, and proceeded to lay waste to human civilization. Entire towns were razed to the ground, uncountable innocent lives lost. Unable to find his father or his friends, Teppei almost falls do desperation when he discovers that he's also one of the newly-awakened demons. But in his darkest hour, the sight of his friends' plight of hope make him remember who he is, and what he strives for.

Teppei will not become a monster, nor a demon. He won't prey on the weak. He will instead prey on the other monsters, and protect the weak and innocent from them. He will become a knight that will protect everyone!

Today I will present manga (Iron Knight) written and illustrated by Tomohiro Yagi, the first release was on December 5 2013. Tomohiro just entered into the world of manga but he has long been known in the art, 2012 he was awarded the Golden Future Cup for Goblin Night and One Shot manga he created.

The story revolves around a young boy named Teppei Ushizume (and full on the words "Iron Soldier"). Although he does not live with his parents, because his mother died and his father has to be away from home for long periods of time because of his job, he stays with read more

Iron Knight died after a one-shot, 17-ish chapters and a singular chapter after the fact. It was certainly short-lived, but it told its story in a straight line. It never explored the interesting possibilities this manga could have become, and it could've lasted longer; Much, much longer.

Iron Knight tells the story of Teppei, a boy so naive and hard-headed it's sickening. He has the ability to become a goblin through the Goblin Virus epidemic and protects humans. He is simple, innocent, and square. His feelings are so dull, and not much is done to give his backstory attention so readers can relate to him. read more

If you read this manga online, websites tend to present the one-shot version as "Chapter 0" and would highly recommend those of you interested in reading this to start with that first if you want to compare to the longer manga version. Otherwise, start with Chapter 1 (duh).

I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this short manga and would say that it is fairly well executed short story. Reading some earlier reviews, I learned that some people are pointing out that it is a rip off of Attack on Titan. While I understand why others may consider it a poor imitation, I have to disagree.

Preliminary
Originally, I started off with the OneShot of Iron Knight and thought it was fantastic plenty of potential for a full serialization.

Low and behold when WSJ finally did serialize they toned down some of the darker themes and reduced the age of several characters to increase "broad appeal".

After just one chapter, I gave up on this version of it and felt content with just the OS. That was my true mistake however.

Story: 10

I've heard talk of how this is an Attack On Titan ripoff story and I can definitely see the similarites. What with the Demons attacking humanity and MC who becomes read more
