A relatively new release… but shows some promise.
Sakurakouji Sakura is one of those girls that look beautiful, modest, and graceful (ojou-sama type). However, very few know about her skills as a top martial artist.
Oogami Rei is a mysterious transfer student. He was first introduced when Sakura caught a glimpse of him burning people with a blue flame.
Of course, he acts completely normal while at school, with the one exception of his hand being gloved. Sakura’s investigative efforts generated a huge misunderstanding, spreading rumors throughout the school that she liked him.
Rei kills puppies. Yes, you read that right. He killed a dog.
He also kills people but it’s his job to get rid of society’s “pests”.
And being the proper gentleman, he treats ladies with respect… after trying to burn them.
While reading those Deathnote/Code Geass ripoffs (Akumetsu, Lost+Brain), I stumbled across this little work. While it has the feel of basic shounen, there’s a sinister twist with the one character using flames to irradicate people, even witnesses or people who get too curious about him (Sakura). A truely chaotic person who fights for good… even if it means killing innocents who get involved.
The term, “code breaker”, is used to describe people like Rei. They can’t be touched by laws or codes of society. It was explained briefly to Sakura before he tried to burn her… and failed.
Overall, it’s still too early to tell with only 3 chapters… but it does have the potential to build up.
