This two-volume manga is based on the DS video game of the same name. In the game and manga, a young boy named Vent dislikes the goverment because they killed his mother. To take his mind off this, he becomes a delivery boy. One package, though, should have been left closed. In this package was a "Bio-metal", a type of hi-ech armor that can give the user Mega Man type powers. With this, Vent decided to fight the corrupt goverment.
With this series, the main problem for me was the pacing. In the game, you have to fight about 8 robot villains in a row. In
the manga, Vent blasts through these robots likes its nobodies buisness. This manga should have been five volumes, not two. Even if you haven't played the game, you may notice.
The art is very good. Bright, clear, shiny, and the fights aren't confusing. The art is a little cuter than the game, but I can deal with it. The characters are all just the normal characters, and if you dislike many confident Shonen protagonists, then you probably won't like Vent.
This is not the best video game manga adaption, but it works as a nice little diversion.
