    If I were the author of this I would have 100% killed myself by now. Love the early art.
    In a world of darkness, populated by fugly bastards, monsters and children, comes a hero and his side-kicks. You can alway tell who he is, because they look like a hair metal band from 1986.
    Didn't the Author dropped the manga because of Depression ?

    Its fun how people still think this is on hiatus.
    big hair and no pants. looks like classic 80s fantasy
    @Neo-Accelerator I read this a long time ago and yes, while it was a very FUN read, like despite how old it was, I really enjoyed the story and characters but this manga will sadly never get finished so I don't know if you would want to put yourself in this situation... otherwise, please give it a go, its fucking amazing.
    I'm scared as fuck to get into this one, seeing as it hasn't been updated in 8 years.
    Wonder if the mangaka would be will to pass on their work rather than leave it unfinished. There must have been some sort of ending in mind
    Man this was such a great manga, it's sad as fuck that it's on such an indefinite hiatus. In terms of the Seinen demographic I consider it up there with the greats like Berserk and Vagabond, and if it was still continuing in it's usual schedule it would no doubt be hyped up. The apocalyptic setting, unique story, and overall cast was amazing.

    The hiatus kicked off around Volume 27 which was pretty deep in the story, but I wonder how many arcs it would have taken before it reached completion? I guess the author got burnt out. The author is still around but who knows if the story will ever be complete. I hope it resumes one of these days though, at least under another illustrator since I assume the author finished the rough draft for the plot. The manga was definitely loved though so that's not an issue. As of 2008, it sold over 30 million volumes worldwide and that's an impressive feat.

    It's always the fun shit that get's put on hiatus, sigh.
    Do these uploads include the new art work update?
    Lymus doing God's work here
    Viz combined 82-84 into 2 chapters. that's why 84 is missing
