MangaCast Review: The Battle of Genryu: Origins, vol. 1
I just reviewed The Battle of Genryu: Origins, vol. 1, for MangaCast, the home for all things manga, including news and reviews. Here's a snippet of what I thought of this manga:
Jin’s your everyday, irresponsible, always-hungry teenager. But, there’s something lurking beneath the surface—something that gives him an enormous amount of physical prowess and power about once a month. ... Jin’s once-a-month power-ups are fairly novel and this manga seems like it might have a humorous bent were it not for a flashback showing a younger Jin surrounded by a pile of bodies. The real story here is the mystery behind Jin’s capabilities, nothing of which is revealed in this first volume.
Interested in learning what I thought of this manga? Then check out the rest of my review here. The Battle of Genryu: Origins is available in the U.S. from CMX.
