Synopsis

Wending his way home after a bender one evening, master moocher and game programmer Keita Ibuki decides to satisfy a craving for ramen at a noodle stand. Instead of slurping soup, though, he surrenders his meal to a manic girl who, unbeknownst to Keita, is a Mototsumitama, a guardian of the coexistence equilibrium. When his new acquaintance is attacked, Keita gets caught in the crossfire and loses an arm. Awakening from the shock of his injury, Keita finds himself back in his apartment... arm intact! But just whose arm is it?! Asking the strange girl raiding his refrigerator reveals only that Keita's life has become a great deal more complicated.

Seeing as there's no review of the completed manga and other reviews are all quite old... here's my (spoiler-free) review of this underrated manga.

I would categorize this manga as:
- Action: a bunch of battle scenes;
- Drama: serious tone and not much comedy;
- Mystery: much of the story has the characters investigating and trying to find information to solve the mysteries surrounding mototsumitama;
- Supernatural: story revolves around supernatural beings and the mysteries surrounding them and their powers.

Also of note is that this manga trends more towards being dark than light-hearted. It's no horror manga that just kills all the characters left and right, but there is read more

Preliminary
Black God is a Seinen, Supernatural, Action that is about the usual ‘fateful encounter’ starting point, with awesome art & action. Even though this is technically a Manhwa/Manwha, the Japanese characters & setting basically makes this a regular Manga.

Keita Ibuki is a normal guy who undergoes an unexpected life-changing experience, when he gets caught in the crossfire of higher beings that call themselves ‘Mototsumitama’. Now there’s a girl named Kuro, who he must stick with, due to various circumstances. The beginning of this hectic story really throws the reader into the thick of it, bombarding you with information regarding the complex plot (doppel-liners, terra, mototsumitama, read more

This is just overall a fantastic storyline and it got me hooked right away, Mostly when Kuro manages to save Keita from the guy in the first volume since it would've sucked if he died right then and there.

The art is a great topic to talk about since it drew me in with the fighting style. The plotline is also very addicting since it gets me to thining that there might be motosumitamas amongs us as well as doppeliners

Preliminary
Wow this is underrated (going by MAL standards not my own). I Hope I can do this some justice with my review.

Black God aka Kurokami is a piece of work that combines a supernatural theme with shounen-like fight scenes. While this is not groundbreaking in any sense when looking at it from this perspective, it makes up for this by being the best in its class.

Art: It Excels and in its case it really matches the style. Its up there with Shin Angyo Onshi and Akumetsu. It really is a waste to deliberate on this when the real thing is just a few clicks read more
