Description:
What does one consider to be a monster? A horrible bloodsucking vampire? Frankenstein's creation? Shuichi Kagaya has a secret. Other than having great grades and being skilled at sports, he isn’t what one would call normal. In fact, Shuichi cannot even be considered human. One fateful morning, he woke up as a monster. With brute strength, an abnormally strong sense of smell, big fluffy paws, and the depression and self-hate that comes after losing one's humanity, his life was suddenly flipped upside down. Claire Aoki, the girl he had decided to save, now holds his secret over his head. Claire is a sadistic and utterly twisted girl, with no sense of empathy toward the lives of others. Before meeting Shuichi, she was in the search of monsters, hoping to find her monster sister. Despite becoming a monster, Shuichi naively continues to hold onto his human morals, but how long can one last in this insufferable way of living?

This manga is actually pretty depressing, you couldn't accept the reality unless you let it go and keep moving foward to the light. The sinister will always in the shadow lurking for another "sins" that's someone committed.

Feel bad for them, just because one pure hearted human can make the world end.

Beuatiful writing and i am not dissapointed for reading this, because it story purpose wasn't happy life anymore.

Hey, I'm watching the Gleipnir's anime and I'm wondering... the MC's still a lil passive bitch in the manga? The plot seems interesting so far, but I have a really hard time with such passive characters.

I agree with ya there, along with any other readers hoping to read any other non-English translation besides the original Japanese, but to be honest, we don't exactly have much of a higher ground to get bad for anyone, since Chapter 53 was the last chapter the current translator decided to translate before announcing I the chapter itself that he/they were dropping the series for good and are leaving the series up for any other groups or translators to pick up and continue.

So really, as of now, we're all in the same boat until someone decided to continue translating the series lol the only difference is that we have a bigger lead in content/translated chapters compared to the Arabic translation.

Right now, our only hope of a continuation for translations falls on anyone with the time and motivation over in /a/ or Reddit. Aside from that, we have no other options except for waiting and hoping there's an official English translation (though I'm not even sure if the series is/was even licensed/picked up by any companies like Yen Press or Viz, or hope the anime's first season has a successful enough run that it gets greenlit for a second and third season, since our best bet if no one decides to translate the manga, officially or otherwise, will be the anime, and at that point, crunchyroll's poor word choices or even amateur fansubs would be a godsend just for the sake of continuing the series and getting closure since the manga seems to be hunting at entering it's endgame territory, or at least the climax of the current arc/overarching story.

Either way, we might be in for a long wait lol so here's to hoping we don't enter Berserk or Hunter x Hunter levels of hiatus time haha

Edit: I'm partially wrong, the translator's message says that Chapter 53 will likely be their last release for the series since its currently the last available RAW, so either the series or magazine itself went on a corona-hiatus instead of a bi-monthly release like some other magazines like WSJ, or the translators are using the volume/tankōbon releases to translate off of and there just hasn't been a new release or the volume containing Chapter 53 was the most recent volume/tankōbon to be released.

Im not too sure myself, since I only started reading (and caught up to the manga) after the first episode of the anime aired, so I'm not sure if the series follows a weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly release schedule

I want Shuichi to end up with Elena, clearly she's just some misunderstood heroine and Claire was the one who probably killed her parents. I have a feeling Elena is going to end up being revealed as some Itachi type character and will probably die just so claire and Shuichi end up together.

I'm still enjoying this without any problems. Don't really care if there are plotholes and I enjoy the relationship between Shuichi and Claire. There's even a character that the author seems to have forgotten the existence of in the early chapters, but I don't care too much.

i feel bad for our arabic friends, they can't continue because they're dropped this series

the manga is overall better than the anime i don't care what anyone say about it

I, on the other hand, choose to overlook the rough start of the male and female MC relationship in the initial chapters. The relationship appeals to me, as does the mysterious story. I am eager to see where this manga goes.

And our Arabic friend below, stuck at Ch. 19 while the English speaking have roared ahead to Ch. 53, asks if the manga translation into Arabic can be completed. Not an unreasonable request.

@Kapouedo I am having...I am having...shudders... trouble...swallowing the alpha and beta ecchi relationship between these two. The plot intrigues me but these two really make me want to drop this thing. I hate how I'm actually curious to see what happens next. I really like sci-fi but this is so weird. SIGH.

The problem I have with Takeda Sun works is his lack of facial expression variations.
