It's been great for me to kind of rediscover manga for the first time in, like, 15 years (fuck, am I old) by going through the original classics (like Astro Boy and Cyborg 009).

I like this book and if u like the action you should read this book 2.its about some scientific people that they get some kid and they make a experiment with them some of them can fly, run as fast as the light, and the other ones are strong and they can change in anything. they can have ultraviolet. then they scape from the lab and all the people are looking with them, and after they fine them they star getting in a fight. at the end of the book they scape by taking a sub.
