One of the top-selling manga in Japan today, with the first four volumes having sold more than 2,300,000 units since March 2013, now hits North American shores. AJIN combines super-natural themes with sci-fi action for a very modern high-paced yarn that should compete with most popular current manga and comic titles.
Under duress, the Ministry of Welfare, which has been abusing demi-humans, is ready to negotiate with them. Yet Sato can’t resist giving the screw another turn.
“One would think that the awakening of supernatural powers would lead to an ordinary kid becoming a beloved superhero. After all, this is what the world of Marvel, DC comics, and even manga & anime has showcased for everyone. But what if the opposite happened? […] Ajin: Demi-Human is a tale that will push readers to look at their own society.” -Boston Bastard Brigade
