Manga Review: Hajimete no Aku


Title: Hajimete no Aku
Author: Shun Fujiki
Release: Weekly
Status: Ongoing
Genre: Slice of Life, Shonen
Art: C
Originality: A
Story: C
Characters: B
Humor: B
Action: C

Impression: This is a story of a pair of siblings seeking shelter with their relatives while the evil organization they are a part of are currently recuperating from a crippling blow delivered by the hands of justice. Despite how that sounds, it’s actually more like how the socially awkward mad scientist, the younger brother of the two siblings, tries to adapt to normal society while his cousin attempts to educate him in the matters of common sense and normalcy. His sister on the other hand is a NEET trying to find work thanks their now defunct organization and spends her time trying to get the two cousins to develop romantic interest in each other. While I must say that concept itself sounds interesting and new, the way it is done isn’t very impressive. It’s okay but I’m impressed that it managed to stay serialized past the 10th chapter. Perhaps there is a lack of good works out there to fill the empty slots left by the end of Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro and the hiatus of D.Gray-man and HunterxHunter. I’d say it’s at risk of cancellation once D.Gray-man is put back into the magazine. Basically it’s funny enough to stay out of cancellation but not enough to get past middle the middle ranks of the magazine so I’m not really expecting much from this.
