What does one consider to be a monster? A horrible bloodsucking vampire? Frankenstein's creation? Shuichi Kagaya has a secret. Other than having great grades and being skilled at sports, he isn’t what one would call normal. In fact, Shuichi cannot even be considered human.

One fateful morning, he woke up as a monster. With brute strength, an abnormally strong sense of smell, big fluffy paws, and the depression and self-hate that comes after losing one's humanity, his life was suddenly flipped upside down. Claire Aoki, the girl he had decided to save, now holds his secret over his head. Claire is a sadistic and utterly twisted girl, with no sense of empathy toward the lives of others. Before meeting Shuichi, she was in the search of monsters, hoping to find her monster sister. Despite becoming a monster, Shuichi naively continues to hold onto his human morals, but how long can one last in this insufferable way of living?

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

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.

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

When I first started reading this, I was reminded a little bit of Double Arts. Much like Double Arts, Gleipnir is a breath of fresh air in the sense that it lets more than just the main character shine. The story is really about Shuuichi, Claire, and their teamwork. I'm excited to keep reading to see how they improve over time.

In general, I'm always pretty happy with the art in manga. But, there is something about Gleipnir that goes above and beyond for me. I feel that the art style carries across more emotion and really fits the vibes that the author is going for.

This is a good series to checkout on if you like action thriller, with a lot of nudity. I really admire the art and design of characters and monster so far, background art is also on point.

That being said, I feel the story could use faster pacing to move things along. The characters are uninteresting at this point other than the female protagonist. She is one hell of a fan service and I don't mind it as long as it doesn't stray too far from the meat of the story.

I'm enjoying this series for trying something different (albeit still in high school setting) when read more
