Core Scramble, Vol. 1 (Core Scramble #1)
The basic premise that I gathered is that there's a guy fighting on a team. This team uses magic to kill "bugs", but the chief on his team is pretty much a jerk. I suggest just reading the synopsis on GR because I just don’t know how to describe this. I have no clue what happened for the majority of this manga. The art style is messy and is not my preference.

I tried to look upon this series with good favor so much that I forced myself to buy the second volume to see how it proceeded but after the rape and further sexual abuse that occurs in v2, I couldn't give it any good favor.

I'm interested to see how the relationship plays out between Chaeun and Moonhoo since the two men are on opposing sides of the fight against interdimensional bugs.
