Manga Review: Bloody Monday


Title: Bloody Monday
Author: Ryuumon Ryou, Megumi Kouji
Release: Weekly
Status: Finished
Genre: Seinen, Mystery
Art: A
Originality: S
Story: S
Characters: A
Humor: C
Action: S

Impression: This is the story of a young genius hacker known to the world as Falcon who becomes involved in conspiracy involving a deadly biological weapon controlled by a cult with people everywhere. His father is framed for the murder of a colleague making him a fugitive from the secret law agency he and his father works for and he is forced to act accordingly to the members of the cult when they threaten him and his friends so he can do their dirty work for them. This is manga is filled with suspense to almost excessively high levels. Things happen pretty quick and there are so many plot twists as to who’s working for who that it never ever fails to excite. There’s a huge cast of characters and they’re all very well thought out regardless of how little focus they are given. I gave the humor a C because every time the authors try to make a joke, it comes off as more of a mood breaker than an actual joke. If it happened more often I would have given it a D in that aspect but thankfully it only pops up every 15 chapters or so. The scanlations are closing in on the ending and there is already a sequel for the story so I’m really looking forward to see how it ends.
