AJIN combines super-natural themes with sci-fi action for a very modern high-paced yarn that should compete with most popular current manga and comic titles.
How do you neutralize, for good, a master tactician who literally won't die? His opposite number in cold calculating genius, our boy anti-hero, thinks he has a plan. It involves a squad of elite soldiers, a hole dug in the ground, and just a tiny window of time.

[W]hen I realised I'd forgotten most, if not all, of the relevant issues of the series I decided to reread it. And damn I'm glad I did!! [...] It's great to see more and more manga taking this approach for stories. Black and White/Good or Evil are great in their own right, but so are stories of grey areas. -The Buttonsmashers
