"I'll probably say this every time I review a volume of Ajin, but it's worth reminding everyone not to miss out on this one. With each release my admiration of Sakurai grows. There's a remarkable combination of fluidity and weight to his action sequences; he has a keen eye for dynamic angles and never holds back when a scene calls for some especially heavy hits... Ajin is more than just solid art, though... This is absolutely a series worth starting if you haven't already, and it only gets better with each new volume." -Web Otaku USA
