And since Sakura has just witnessed the effects of his deadly blue flame, she’s slated to be the next to burn!

LG (A Library Girl's Familiar Diversions)
This first volume of Code:Breaker wasn't necessarily bad, but had very little that made me want to continue reading.

The mystery surrounding Rei and what Code:Breakers and Deviant Breeds are should, in theory, have inspired me to want to know more. The difference between Rei when he's trying to act like an ordinary high school boy and Rei when he's being a merciless killer is remarkable – he's so hard to read that it's tough to say for sure whether his small kindnesses towards dogs and children w

With Code: Breaker, we have a fairly typical urban fantasy that never really hits any high points in this first volume. The main characters are irrational and poorly written. The story is inert and has far too much tell over show. And the illustration work is very unimaginatively 'seinen'. Honestly, I was bored.

Story: Sakurakoji is the perfect girl at her high school: highly interested in martial arts, beautiful, lively,

Really underwhelmed by this one. An excerpt from my review below; the full review can be found here: http://www.playbackstl.com/comic-book...

"If Kamijyo played his hand right, Code: Breaker could work as a philosophical battle between Rei and Sakura, between wreaking Biblical vengeance (“An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, and evil for evil,” as Rei puts it) and preserving the rule of law. But that battle never really takes because in Code: Breaker’s world, there are no shades of gray: in th

This reminds me of a mystical Full Metal Panic. It's both funny and serious. The funny parts comes from social ineptness by the main character Sakura Sakurakoji for example she wakes up in the park after witnessing her classmate Rei Ogami kill a bunch of thugs there the night before. She gets to school late and Ogami is acting like nothing happened.
Sakurakoji: Aoba, I never went home last night. Could you cover for me by saying I slept over at your place?
Aoba: E-eh?! Wha--?! Why?!
Sakurakoji: If

حدودا سه و نیم.
نقاشی هاش اونقدر که انتظار داشتم عالی نبود اما داستان تا اینجا با یکم نفاوت، بهتر از انیمه بوده.
امیدوارم تا پایانش به اندازه ی انیمه ش ناقص نباشه و به سوالایی که برای خواننده ایجاد می کنه جواب بده.

I actually finished this series and it was okay, filled with lots of actions and comdey. I got attached to loads of characters in this story. But
although I did like the ending, I still found myself being a little sad about it. Maybe because it wasn't what I would have liked it to be. I gave it 2.5 stars because how the series closed the whole thing up has a big impact on how I will feel about it overall.

I enjoy the concept of the series, but I don't care for Sakura's outlook on life. It's naive and preachy.

Currently in the midst of this series.. and I must admit it took a while to get there. The beginning of this manga is dreadfully dull but I continued in the hopes that it would get better later on, and it did! So just bear it and read on. For the first volume, though, it could have done better to draw more readers in.

Would have given it 5 stars, but there is some animal cruelty in a couple of the chapters and I really did not like it.
