Kurozakuro Chapter 01

Sunday, April 1, 2007

There’s a lot of fuss about this manga at my place so I decided to take a peek to see what it is all about. The story goes something like this – you have your normal highschool and like any normal highschools there are ugly bullies. Enter Mikito your four-eyed weakling who seems to have a habit of getting beaten up and extorted for money. He actually has a noble reason for this but his friend Saki doesn’t understand and thought he was just a coward. Moving forward, a crystal ball somehow got into his bag and transported him to strange place where he met Zakuro, a little monster who’s looking after a barren tree. Zakuro asked Mikito his innermost desire so Mikito told him that he wants to be stronger. Zakuro granted his wish and in return he wanted Mikito to make the flowers bloom all over the tree. Mikito didn’t quite understand and he woke up in his bed. Mikito felt strange and when he ran into the bullies at school, a bloody fight ensued. But this time Mikito was the only one left standing.

Sorry for the spoilers but I find this manga so interesting that I can’t help but tell all about it. The 1st chapter, though, still leaves a lot of questions. There’s obviously some sinister scheme behind Mikito and Zakuro’s deal and I read from a summary that Mikito will gradually turn into an ogre/monster. I’m really excited about the flow of the story, a lot of interesting angles. Fight scenes are detailed and effectively drawn highlighting great moves from Mikito. I’m expecting more of these engaging scenes in the next chapters.

The manga is already quite popular and I wouldn’t be surprised if it hits the TV screen anytime soon.

The second page displayed reminds me of Tenjou Tenge. If the rest of this manga has that kind of action/graphic violence I'd love to see an anime version appear.
