Manga Review: World Embryo

Release: Monthly
Status: Ongoing
Genre: Seinen, Fantasy
Art: S
Originality: S
Story: S
Characters: S
Humor: A
Action: S

Impression: Amami Riku is guy who lost his sister in a mysterious fire incident at a hospital two years before and has come to the now abandoned hospital in hopes of finding her after receiving a mysterious message from her phone but what awaits him there is trouble as he finds monsters and a mysterious cocoon that he later takes home. The cocoon later hatches to reveal a baby look-a-like of his sister that gets him dragged into the secret struggle to destroy the memory eating monsters called Kanshuu. The concept is pretty interesting and since it’s a seinen manga, the author doesn’t have to pull his punches when in terms of gore and character deaths. It’s got a pretty exciting pace and there’s plenty of mysteries and hints at the plot epicness. The characters are shown to have a lot of depth and the choices they make are based on their various character flaws like Riku's inability to trust others and his almost obsessive sister complex. The battles are pretty good too and we actually get to see something similar to Unlimited Blade Works get pulled off within the first year of serialization. Excellent manga for anyone who enjoys shonen and doesn't mind the occasional mature ideas popping up here and there.
