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!

Volume 1: Iron Curtain

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.

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

This is a review of the manga up to chapter 5.

I picked this up from a recommendation and I'm glad I did. I say this with no exageration: The first chapter alone could be sold as its own story and I'd buy it. It is masterfully paced, delivers everything you need to know at that point, the art is good and easy to follow, and the main character is very relatable.

I stress this, in a time where manga protagonists are cardboard cutouts of popular examples or have these egregiously dislikeable chracteristics to make them seem "edgy", Teppei stands out. He is idealistic, driven, energetic, and read more

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 is a manga that has just been serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump. There's only been 5 chapters so I'm only judging on the five chapters that have come out.

Story (5/10): The story is about a 10 year old kid called Teppei. He wakes up one day in a post-apocalyptic world runned by goblins that eat humans. Apparently somehow he's able to turn into an iron skinned goblin hence the name "Iron Knight." With his new power, he's currently trying to find his parents that disappeared overnight.

Art (8/10): There's really nothing special. The drawings are pretty good.

Character (6/10): As for right read more
