The “past” arc of the show is dark, disturbing drama about perversion of human condition within martial artist circles, but the “present” kinda feels like a simple shounen about kicking ass (though it still has some dark moments). Really loved the atmosphere and concept, but it’s unfinished and the story seems to fall apart in later chapters of the manga.
