It revolves around Alucard, a vampire who works in an organization responsible for killing vampires (I told you that the plot is messed up). What will happen when a vampire kills his own kind? This can only be found by reading this manga.

Then there’s Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, a manga that takes us back to the days of the Samurai. Don’t assume that this comic is about a peaceful and charming ancient Japan since everyone has been infected with a virus that turns them into Kabane.

Kabane are zombies whose bodies are made of steel  (I know you are shocked). The Kabane are undermining Japan’s tranquility, and the only way to stop them is to cut off their heads.

What will the Japanese people do to save themselves? Will they make weapons like the folks in Attack on Titan, or will a hero come to their rescue? Nah! That much I can’t tell you. To learn, read the manga.

When we hear the word blood, the first thing that springs to mind is a vampire, right? It’s completely different in the case of Blood+. This manga tells the story of Saya, a normal girl who has lost her memories and is now living with her adoptive parents.

Her life was significantly changed when she met Hagi, who informed her that he had been looking for her for quite some time. Hagi also told her that he is aware of her background and that she possesses some mysterious powers. What exactly are those powers? Is she capable of destroying the strange monsters that have just appeared?

That can only be discovered by reading this manga, so what are you waiting for? Start reading now, or someone else will find out before you.

After that, Jagasaki found that his arm had been transformed into a gun and that he was now accompanied by a talking owl.

For the sake of Earth’s future, a good-hearted man named Akira Fudou allowed a demon to take possession of him so that he and the demon might subsequently defend others.

You’re probably wondering why a demon would join forces with a human. That part will be revealed in the manga, so you’ll have to figure it out on your own.

Imagine living in a place where almost everyone has transformed themselves into some sort of a weapon after a war.

Well, that’s the story of our next manga No Guns Life. After the end of the tragic war, people are now transformed into Extends, which means they have modified their body parts into weapons.

Our MC, Inui Juuzou, has also replaced his head with a gun (dang, can you guys imagine talking to someone who is continuously pointing a gun at you?).

Surprisingly, his head gun is constructed in such a way that the trigger can only be pulled from behind (thank god!).  

Juuzou earns a career in the city by taking on cases involving Extends, and he is supported by Mary, a brilliant young lady whom he has taken under his protection.

But you should know the fact that Hyakkimaru’s father did not sell him for money but rather in exchange for his body and organs. Hyakkimaru was born with only a single limb. The demons took his hands, nose, arms, and legs. The only way he can get his body parts back is by killing all of those demons.

Agni is an orphan who stays with Luna his entire life. They have both had similar past experiences and are both born with supernatural abilities.

The most noticeable characteristic of Fire Punch’s resemblance to Chainsaw Man is the sensation of strangeness that it conveys. In some ways, Fire Punch captures much of Chainsaw Man’s actions, ranging from pandemonium to total loneliness.
