    It was okay, feel like it'll get pretty generic sooner rather than later.

    It's decent, although a bit too gory.

    I have to say that the first chapter of the manga didn't really suck me in, but I'll hold back with my opinion before I read more chapters.

    Ok, Rax, I have just read the first chapter, and I must say I liked it, thanks for recommendation.

    My thoughts
    Spoiler:
    The character with an eye patch is already a winner for me. That Pochita, different, strange, risky, but an interesting and adorable little friend, to say the least.
    Denji reminds me a bit of Kaneki, but only with his hairstyle.
    What got me interested and surprised me a bit is the combination of unreal happenings and pretty obvious routine daily life struggles that Denji and Pochita have to go through. Combintion of something that you might think cannot be put together. And he is so positive and still tries to keep his head up (in case him mentioning he wants a girlfriend) no matter what difficulties he has in life, like paying that debt or being very physically sick. I appreciate that quality in a person.

    Fucking zombies, that really pissed me off. But I am happy he got 'reincarnated' with Pochita's heart, I expect revenge now, those cruel fucks deserve it after what they have done and for the attitude. And then they call him gross, like wtf, you were the ones cutting him in pieces to begin with.

    He didn't want to become a monster, the society, the surroundings, the evilness all over turned him into a monster, it wasn't his fault. He wanted to survive, he took action.

    I found it a bit odd that Denji looks like a monster with a human body but with a devil's head. I thought Pochita would come out of his chest since that is part of his heart, but Pochita's affect is on his head too, interesting.

    The girl instantly calmed him down and knew what to offer to get him on her side. They look like a secret dangerous organization where she is an important participant, more badass devil hunters, perhaps.


    Predictions for the next chapter
    Spoiler:
    He has been turned into a devil monster now, and he would want to take even more revenge since he tasted blood and win after slaughtering the zombies. The girl would try to use him for the organization purposes since he seems very strong and capable, but they will start having romantic relationship and she would want to pull him out of that role, but the pressure and past would be too much to handle. And he would be turning more evil and would have trouble adjusting to his new personality. He will be harder to control. And it will be up to her to bring him back. All these happenings in the middle of fighting and dealing with obstacles.

    How many chapters are expected?
    Have you made a review about it on your channel yet?
    Will the series ever be animated, would be cool to see that fight with zombies animated at least.

    Btw while I think this manga is interesting I don't think it'll get very far due to how simplistic everything is. Like "devil hunter", many mangas use that monster hunter theme a lot already. But who knows, maybe the mangaka can go creative and give us some big impact later on.

    Only 26 pages this time :hm

    Spoiler: Thoughts about 2nd chapter

    Of course Denji feel in love with the girl at first sight - she offered him food (one of the things he wants and dreams about the most) and treated him nicely. But wait, nothing is what it seems. Makima's got some balls. Bossy and edgy.
    "I'm gonna have fun with that female now" <- never would have expected something like that from a one-eyed devil :tiredpepe
    It was cool to find out Denji's case was one of the rarest since devils don't sacrifice themselves and don't merge with humans. He is a unique example, will he be studied and experimented on?
    I must say I enjoyed the first chapter more, but again it is expected since first manga chapters are made to impress and to get readers involved. However, my interest still stays the same.
