Seriously? This manga still has no thread?

Let's start a thread about this incredible seinen by Masakazu Katsura.

Take Kamen Rider. Showa, preferably. Now, wait a decade, and target it again at the same people who grew up on it. You've got a completely different demographic, right? People who've grown up. Who can accept adult themes, and who can grasp different aspects of a plot. Now tone out the violence, and the monster of the week aspects, and make all the fights struggles for survival, no "He's evil, eliminate him" generics to fill the pages (Or minutes, I suppose).

That's pretty much Zetman. Kamen Rider for grown-ups.

This is published alongside Gantz, by the way.

Of course, I'm obviously a brainwashed fan, perhaps too willing to accept the... potentially slow plot. But it happens. Am I allowed to post links to scanlations on here? I don't think you guys would mind that sort of practice when the series isn't being serialized state-side, right?
Not exactly a Rider, but I'm still... Sort of a hero, I suppose.

So wait, this isn't a fanfic about yourself?

:lol: Funny, but no.

Absolutely not.
