    Everything was great! From the artstyle to the story. Too bad it got axed ;/

    Btw I've been trying to find if the author makes erotic doujinshis but I couldn't find any... So if you know, please tell me for further scientific purposes, *double wink*
    Damn, i was devastated when i found out this manga got axed. This series had SO much potential to be great and if it was given a proper chance to grow it could have been one of the top.
    I definitely saw this as the potential successor to Bleach. They had so much similarities from the great art, to the similar hot head lead with unique abilities, to meeting a supernatural being who gives them power, to having an organization who hunts supernatural threats and much more. It just felt like this had the potential to do what bleach did in its hay day but of course end better.

    Anyway enough hopes its just sad to see. His new series Heart gear is pretty great too so far and i recommend people who like this author to go read that to keep the support for him going.
    Absolutely tragic that this got canceled. I’m not gonna say it was a masterpiece, but it was cool AF and the ART is INCREDIBLE. I have two volumes in English, and man it looks good.
    It's finally end,
    The more i read, the more i feel it's like a cooler naruto-beast-pal manga
    i cant read the chapters on S2Scans, anyone knows where i can read the rest of the chapters.?
    @takashiobatasan You're welcome. The series is readable for free on Mangaplus by the way (it's bi-weekly).
    OMG thank you so much @lyendith Tsuyoshi-sensei is one of my favorite mangaka thanks for the link
    Takaki Tsuyoshi has already started a new series, called Heart Gear, on Shonen Jump +.
    @TrueGoddessReincarnation The last chapter is 19.

    What's with 13th chapter?
    @Lyendith this got 5 volumes? So like 10 more chapters to go?
    Is there a PRINCESS(mononoke) here??
    Sucks that this manga got axed.
    Wow, wasn't expecting to see this manga again. Was always ticked off that it got dropped.
    @bastek66 Having read the ending, I don't think it was axed. There really wasn't much more to tell after volume 5.
    First moved from Jump SQ to Shounen Jump+ then axed with 19th chapter.
    Anachronistic. This series feels like it was made more than a decade ago with how cliche and one note the characters and premise are.
    What?? Aww :(
    S2scans is the one scanlating this and they do not want their chapters on MD.
