Impression: This is set in a world where humans have created genetically modified human hybrids called Ajin as slaves except that a past war has now made the slavery of these hybrids illegal. Because of that, special law enforcement agencies have been established to handle crimes related to the Ajin and the story is centered on a small branch of this agency where a girl who’s a hybrid of a human and Ajin works to make a better future for the Ajin. The first chapter threw me off with the conventional intro for a story like this and made me hold off reading more but the following chapters were surprisingly good. The author makes good use of the discrimination of the Ajin and the ethics people are able to ignore when they are blinded by prejudice and actually gives focus to the characters around the protagonist early on. With only a handful of chapters scanlated so far and 4 volumes out, I'm looking forward to what future chapters will bring.
