John Elegadine, a curry lover and a professional thief, encounters Lu Larue, a thief lock picker, as he was taking a stroll through a bazaar. With the two together, they are to find the legendary demon stone that is scattered into thirteen pieces around the world. Once the pieces are put back together, the demon stone is willing to grant a wish upon the user's desire.
I found manga to be a bit genaric; same old shounen story, main character's a guy (of course lolz) who loves to eat food, is super strong, and is an idiot, with a girl who's thrown in there that can sometimes seem like a nuisance and also an idiot *coughKyokocoughfromcoughcoughKHRcough* The story's arc isn't all that interesting and doesn't seem to catch a person's attention; reading through it somemore, it actually reminds me of One Piece. Only with less characters (from where I'm reading it so far lolz) and a seemingly Sasuke like rival with the goal being the "Demon Stone" instead of the goal of the Grand Line. Think of the main characters as a sort of Luffy and Nami pairing, only slightly different with a WAAAY dumber Nami in it. Heck, even the opening/beginning of it is very much like Nami and Luffy's first chane meeting.
The main character, John, has a power in his arm that allows him to deflect and lift heavy things, just like Luffy with his *spoiler* of a body. Instead of John liking all foods, he apparently loves curry very much.
I can't exactly say that it's a very good manga, seeing as I haven't read that many chapters of it yet, but so far, it's a bit too genaric. I gave it a chance since this was done by the same creator of Samurai Deeper Kyo, one of the best animes/ mangas EVER (only like... well, let's just say that it doesn't top Naruto nor Bleach for now XD). It might not be your exact cup of tea, but hopefully you found this none so inciting review totally un-useless. Who knows, this manga may even be on par with KHR (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!) or Naruto for all I care.read more
i enjoyed this manga, particularly because it took two people, who had no clue about each other, but where obviously destined to work alongside each other and threw them together in a rather funny, yet violent meeting. and despite obvious occupational hazards and the problems they created, they found new allies and new powers all in all, i give this a 9/10, because it left a few gaping questions at the end.
