View Full Version : B-ICHI

4th Jun 2012, 00:02
Another Square Enix manga published by Yen Press stateside, with art by Atsushi Ohkubo (the one who's famous for Soul Eater). B-ICHI follows the story of the dokeshi Shotaro, a young boy with the ability to mimic animals by biting on their bones. Dokeshi are mutants, feared by the population, that use their strange powers with a tradeoff: Shotaro has to do one good deed per day in order to use his. The boy is looking for his old friend Emine, and runs into two others that eventually help him, Mana and Yoh.

The concept of "powers with a price" is very similar to the Darker than Black series, which also originiates as a Square Enix title. B-ICHI is somewhat childish compared to DtB, though.

I bought all 4 volumes a while back. I read the first one and loved it, but haven't gotten around to reading the rest of them.
