In my search for new manga to read, I happened upon Zombie Powder. Being written by a mangaka who made a series I subscribe to I had to check it out. While Bleach has been failing lately in the current arc, I assure you Zombie Powder does what Bleach does not. Sadly however the manga did not receive support and was canceled before 5 volumes. :cry Basically the story is about a man on a search for artifacts that could grant him immortality. The first thing I noticed about this jewel of a manga is that the fights are very original, not the usual hack, slash, getsuga tensho battles that Bleach has become.



Almost every battle there are new interesting weapons and characters, it was never stale. The next thing I noticed was that it made me laugh at times. The comedy reminded me of early Bleach. This manga makes you remember why you used to like Bleach in the first place.
So if you have some free time try it out, it's a quick read, and you won't be disappointed.
