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.

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 ...

If you ever want to start a drinking game with your buddies and don't know about what, - Just let everyone read this manga.(get copies for everyone and start with chapter one) fill up on ~2 bottles of 40% wodka and start the game.

Everytime the female MC makes anything stupid, does make you sigh, makes you or your buddies want to bang the head against a wall or makes you or your buddies to wish she gets killed at that scene take a shot.

I am rather sure you wont get further than chapter 12. That's the most we ever got before getting completly drunk.

Honestly ...
