You can find it over at onemanga.

The first things first: art style.
If you like your manga clean and slick and with a bunch of clean lines I wouldn't recommend this one. The style takes a little getting used to but is well worth the effort. You also have to be into A) politics, b) violence, and c) conspiracy.

So we start off this manga with this chick in a beany stalking around not doing much. These guards tell her to piss off when she just fucking busts a circuit on these guards. They try and shoot her but honestly, it really doesn't work. Blood splatters then suddenly-!! Scene change. Not to worry though because now we have this long haired assassin with a mask standing epically with his kunai poised and a brigade of armed officers behind him (As seen here.) This long-haired dude in not much of a shirt then proceeds to stab his kunai through this guy's throat with as much grace as a swan. This guy turns out to be named Hao Long, age 28. He's China's top agent and usually works alone- This is important.

Who was that girl in the scene change link then? Either way, let's call her Jane Doe for now.

It is realized that Hao Long (Jane Doe seems to have never been there!) have stolen top secret things from the United States- in the State of Alaska. Not sure what Hao Long was doing nearly shirtless in Alaska but I will not question this. Then there is a lot of politics babble then after and a lot of "wtf do we do now?" it is settled that Hao Long is now a top priority.

Of course, in the style of action manga's, top priority take-downs require the strongest of the strong or, these weird genetic mutant things. Right after the scene switches back to the original chick we were presented with but this time she's in action, she's busting balls on these guards.

So remember that giant-ass coat she was wearing? Well it was covering her skin tight bathing suit and hiding those goggles of hers. She then jumps off the bridge and into the freezing waters below, ditching the jacket and the dead bodies for that castle/fortress thing. Another scene switch but this time to some dude in New York, smoking his cigarettes and murmuring things about "it's time" then says this creepy, arch-nemesis kind of thing: "Welcome to my game".

And that is just the first chapter.

It is. It updates like never but when ever it does I'm all over that bad boy like an ADD child to a candy store.

Who's the mangaka? The art looks like Hiroaki Samura.

aaaah no more updates since April?

I'm totally digging the art style! *A* This looks really interesting. Checking it out for sure

The total lack of updates is depressing but when new chapters are released, it makes it that much sweeter xD
5th-Jan-2009 08:09 am (UTC)
This looks really fucking cool. :)

EDIT This reminds me of something and I have no idea what! It's really bugging me. :S Witchblade, maybe? I'm not sure. HOPEFULLY, IT'LL COME TO ME AND I'LL BE ABLE TO STOP RACKING MY BRAIN.

Witchblade is pretty fucking amazing xD it would not be a downfall for this to remind you of witchblade.

I'm not sure what it could remind you of D:
5th-Jan-2009 11:46 pm (UTC)
The art style reminds me of Blade of the Immortal - which is yet another awesome series. Does that help? ^.^;;
6th-Jan-2009 12:27 am (UTC)
ahhh I need to check that out xD I'll get around to it soon.
6th-Jan-2009 12:39 am (UTC)
It's awesome. Lots of violence and the art style is very, very similar. *muses* Maybe I should post to the community about the series....
6th-Jan-2009 12:41 am (UTC)
Ohho~~~ please do xD I know I'm working on like, 15 right now ;;;;;
6th-Jan-2009 12:59 am (UTC)
XD Sure~ I'll post it after I scrap together stuff to post. XD

and wow....15.....^^;;;;; XP
6th-Jan-2009 01:02 am (UTC)
Doubt, DOGS, Until Death do us Part, Alive -the Final Evolution, Rustblaster, Di[e]ce, Majin Devil, Kimi no Todoke, Zombie Powder, Casshern Sins, Baccano!, Black Lagoon, Overdrive, Ghost Hound, Great Teacher Onizuka, Princess Princess, and Fire Candy. It would've been more but this group already has a a bunch of ones I like pimped~!
6th-Jan-2009 01:49 am (UTC)
Ohhh DOGS! And Great Teacher Onizuka - I read that SO long ago, but it was funny. Zombie Power too! I liked Gamma and Mr. Smith. XD

Maybe I could do these three, and lighten up the load? =) It may take me a while since I'm in school, but I'd be happy to help out if you want.
6th-Jan-2009 01:52 am (UTC)
How bout we split the gto load, because I've just watched the anime xD I need to get around to the manga. You can totally do DOGS and Zombie Powder.

That would be lovely~ do you have a list of your to-do's?
6th-Jan-2009 02:04 am (UTC)
Sure. I've only read the manga, so that's an even split either way, heh.

Actually I don't have a to-do list for the community, hahaha. ^^;;; I did read some other manga that aren't that well known, so I'll look into them again and we'll see. But now there's DOGS, Zombie Power, GTO, and Blade of the Immortal to do. =)
6th-Jan-2009 02:08 am (UTC)
fabulous~ I'm just wondering if the torchwood series is obscure enough to post here. It's big in Europe but the fandom in NA is fairly small. It's a spin off of Doctor Who though, so it's big in its own cult way. (JUST FINISHED SEASON TWO AGAIN xD)
6th-Jan-2009 05:47 am (UTC)
I think it may be obscure enough since I don't even know about it, heh. ^^;;
6th-Jan-2009 05:49 am (UTC)
maybe xD That will have to come AFTER that giant list though xD
5th-Jan-2009 07:17 pm (UTC)
Ahhh I've seen art from this around! Dude, I didn't know it was an actual series, cool.
6th-Jan-2009 12:20 am (UTC)
Totally bitchen real series! Ahhh you have artstuffs from it? I'd love to see what you've found!
6th-Jan-2009 04:11 pm (UTC)
Gah, I've looked, and I can't figure out where I saw it. XD;; It was mostly icons [I always thought it was an interestingly styled version of Naruto's Sakura, actually ;;;] on dA, in a group of really good artists that I run into all the time when I'm not looking. *brick'd*
7th-Jan-2009 04:24 am (UTC)
ah xD thanks anyways <3 it pleases me to know I'm not the only oneeee sob
30th-Jan-2009 03:32 am (UTC)
The artist is on dA here, if that's any help.
5th-Jan-2009 11:45 pm (UTC)
Ohh, this series is pretty cool! And I do like the artwork. =) Sad that it's on hiatus now. T.T
6th-Jan-2009 12:25 am (UTC)
I'm not even sure what it's on right now xD I just want an update soon.
19th-Jan-2009 06:49 pm (UTC)
