Description

High school student Kei Nagai is killed in a traffic accident, but immediately revives to learn that he may not be human at all. Instead, he may be a Demi-Human, a mysterious almost immortal being blessed with amazing super-human abilities. Scared, he runs away, and is aided in his escape from society by his friend Kai. Unfortunately for Kei, the manhunt is on and he will soon be caught within a conflict between mankind and other Demi-Humans as they prepare to fight for global supremacy.

Reviews

[W]hen I realised I'd forgotten most, if not all, of the relevant issues of the series I decided to reread it. And damn I'm glad I did!! [...] It's great to see more and more manga taking this approach for stories. Black and White/Good or Evil are great in their own right, but so are stories of grey areas. -The Buttonsmashers
