Angels VS Demons

It is your normal "Good guys" vs "Bad guys" but with a twist added to the story. Not to dive too deep into it, this first volume starts setting up the story, introducing characters, adds some background story but not as much as I would like, leaving you feel sort of empty in some areas. It can be kind of confusing to follow in the beginning but hopefully in further chapters it will all start coming together. It does seem however the story seems sort of rushed which is a bummer. I can definitely see potential in this story and if done right, this could possibly be a longer ongoing series. Which I would back 100%
And for under $7.00?! This is worth picking up for so cheap, even if it isn't your cup o' tea it is worth a shot.
P.S. There is some fanservice in here so if that isn't your thing you have been warned!
My Thoughts on 7th Garden
As a Shonen Jump series targeted for older teens, 7th Garden brings some life to the older teen section of the company. It reminds me of Claymore through its similar setting, violence, and the abuse of citizens from those in power. The fanservice does not take away from the plot surprisingly, which helps keep focus on the exposition and other story elements within.
With that said the first volume does what one would hope they would do. It sets up the world we read, makes us begin to feel for the main cast, and leave us on a horrible cliffhanger. I would recommend buying this with its second volume in order to keep up with its cliffhanger, but if you can stand the suspense, then a single volume will work.

Rouge angel makes a pact with a guy who just wants to protect his friends and have a normal life. In all honesty that description doesn't do the story justice. The action scenes are visceral and epic, the story has many themes that I don't see many manga talk about like religion, social hierarchy to such depth. If you are put off by the cover don't worry its not a "ecchi" series, however it does use some fanservice (as most shonen do) to apply a comedic effect or to define a character and does so sparingly its not in your face ecchi scenes in your face every page. So far its a great read.
