Synopsis

Shuuichi Kagaya isn't human. He has an unnatural sense of smell, and can transform into an incredibly powerful beast... of sorts. He does all he can to avoid standing out and being discovered, but no good deed goes unpunished, and his decision to use his power to save a girl spells the end for his quiet life.

In the short span of 12 chapters this manga got my hopes up and died in my eyes, both at the hands of its fanservice. Where I once believed there isn’t a way this can flop, I am left to wonder what I liked in the first place.

Thinking back, it was probably the tension, the ambitious idea, the body horror, the nice reversal of gender tropes and shounen tropes: Gleipnir is structured as shounen, but it’s darker and more cynical, focused on the street brawl “by what means we have” philosophy. I was on board with the raunchy, sketchy art. I even enjoyed the weird read more

Currently, I have read 21 chapters, and I must say there is room for potential. From the start, I reckon some people will assume the mindset that this is a manga with an excessive amount of fan-service with no real drive to develop the narrative, A.K.A. your typical go by quote, "I'm reading this for the PLOT!" when you're trying to justify an anime or manga that's just 100% lewd. Anyways, the story sounds somewhat ridiculous when you're confronted with the fact that protagonist-kun's transformation is that of a psychopathic mascot. But once, you overlook the fan-service and if you're not into corny transformations like read more

A very eh story with an interesting idea. That fails on multiple levels of some of the most basic stuff.

~~GOOD~~
Monster designs tend to be creative and interesting.
First couple chapters are fairly interesting.
Some decent comedy.


~~ BAD~~
Characters don't act like regular people.
Enemies tend to be cliche villains.
Story tries it's hardest to be as edgy as can be.
Female Main Character is just not that enjoyable she is kind of crazy.
Male Main Character is a whinny kid that gets powers and what not ( Typical Japan kid gets power trope )


Could have been interesting but got kind of annoying.
