Sakura Sakurakouji witnesses a large group of people being mercilessly burned alive in blue flames as a boy watches with cruel eyes. Moved by her unwavering sense of justice, she returns to the scene the next day. However, neither she nor the police is able to find any bodies or evidence that could suggest such a crime had taken place.

At school, she meets new transfer student Rei Oogami, a charismatic boy that quickly wins over the class. Sakura recognizes him as the murderer and quickly learns that Rei is someone who exists outside the law: a "Code:Breaker." Despite him justifying his actions with the phrase "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, and evil for evil," Sakura is convinced that what Rei is doing is wrong and aims to stop him before anyone else gets hurt.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Code:Breaker was partially published in English by Del Rey Books, who published the first two volumes from July 27, 2010 to October 26, 2010, before they were taken over by Kodansha, and the license was dropped.

What a brilliant and beautiful story, oh my goodness. I'm gonna do my best here to actually review it instead of just sobbing through my keyboard, so here I go.

My favorite aspect of this manga is the fact that each and every main character has a rich backstory without the entire story becoming too convoluted. Because of that, the pacing was also really well done. Each character's past came out at exactly the right time, and it was written beautifully.

The art was great as well, and I really got a feel for how the scenes were playing out-- namely the action scenes. Also, the read more

For me Code Breaker is a 10/10 manga with amazing charachters(i mean all of them,the villians,the code breakers,the angels).My top 3 charachters in Code Breaker are Toki(The Joker),Rui(The Guardian Angel)and Hitomi.Every main charachter is well written with a good backstory and their own aspirations and purposes.The protagonist is a very rare kind of protagonist and by that i mean he is a mcuh more of an anti-hero than a good guy.Sakura the female lead is much better than the anime version,in fact everyone is far better than hte anime version so you have to read this manga no matter what.!!!I want a faithful to read more

Story: There have always been people and there always will be people that will evade laws and slip past justice after committing a crime. For people that have committed serious crimes and escaped unscathed, there is an organization of code breakers to dispose of them. The manga brings up many philosophical ideas of crime and punishment especially of the death penalty and the "can people really change?" debate. Although a very interesting plot at first, I can only give the story an 8 because it is very repetitive and does not present any big plot twists or enough suspenseful moments. I must have heard the read more

Okay here goes nothing. The character with the exception of one, are all likeable. The male lead isn't your typical annoying weak/good goody character. He's constantly killing people which is a plus for me. The character in this manga all have some sort of "ability". Control fire, magnetism, electricity and so forth which you would think makes for some pretty decent fights, but not really. All the fights go one or the other. The lead either completely dominates or completely gets dominated. There is no middle ground, making most of the fight scenes pretty boring. As for the story, well it's not terrible but it read more
