    I wouldn't put it like that, but yeah it is certainly making HJ look better by comparison.
    At least HJ tried something "different" (albiet it sucks at doing it), but WT is nothing but recycled, confused content from other shounen/action titles (heck, even the title font is a rip from something else).

    Also it seems like the author doesn't even know what type of story he is going for. If you are going to write a sci-fi story, you don't have three chapters focused MOSTLY on beating up high school bullies (that is reserved for something like a slice of life story) and only about 8ish pages (out of the three chapters) showcasing your alien monsters (their designs aren't all that interesting either). Why does the author feel the need to keep bringing the bullies back into the story? Does he intend on turning the leader into a sort of Ryunosuke (Shaman King) character later? Or is he suppose to be our damsel in distress since we have yet to run into any prominent female leads so far?

    So far they've only been punching bags. We get it! Bullies are bad and lame! Stop wasting panels and show us something more "science-fiction/action-esque".

    After reading chapter 3, yea it's a pain that the bullies were mentioned yet again, but there wasn't that much time spent on it. And in it's defense, they allowed the readers to learn a bit about how Border operates and let the main leads interact with other people (though that could easily have been handled differently too).

    The poor pacing and lack of any substantial info gained from reading this chapter was way worse.

    It might have even been okay if the main characters and their ineractions were interesting/likable, but their meh at best and the glasses guy hasn't had nearly enough spotlight.

    I haven't read the 3rd chapter yet. Was there more ( = 3 =)?

    It seems weird to me that this guy is going about this manga the way he is. No real hooks yet?

    Yes on the face, as for the hook...looks like glasses guy isn't going to report the dude is a neighbor as long as he doesn't do anything illegal, and (=3=) seems happy about it, plus there's another random attack, but no solid hook yet for now (for me at least).

    After already dealing with bullies three times in the previous two chapters, wasting another six pages on them I say is a waste.
    That may not seem like a lot to you, but that's well 1/4 of the chapter.

    It's hard to believe this is the same guy who did Super Dog Rilienthal, he's just staaaaaaaaaaalling like no-one's business. I mean I like it a bit, it looks pretty, but it's a step down from Ashihara's previous work, and when that only ran 4 volumes that's.... not a good sign.

    Best comparison is still Takama-Ga-Hara, in that they both wasted their opening chapters, but I really do want this to pull its socks up and get on with more exciting stuff. And more exciting expressions.

    Looks like that bully with the broken foot will probably be a reoccurring character. Despite having his mind wiped he vaguely remembered his foot getting crushed after ( = 3 =) did his ground stomp. I can only assume that's why he bothered showing them again so soon.

    Also this image...http://www.mangahere.com/manga/world...r/c003/21.html

    Is that the same guy on the left? Or is it someone else?

    Chapter 4, WOOHOO! much better. This really should have been chapter 1.

    Spoiler:

    Aliens! Action! Brutal decapitation, our hero in danger! School in panic!

    NO BULLIES TO BEAT UP!

    You were right. This would have been a much better starter chapter. I actually found something to like about it despite the fact I still don't like ( = 3 =).

    I like how the trigger transformation kinda seems to function. I was all "Oh shit!" But then it was fine lol.

    Still hurting from 2 and 3's world-building vapidness, but man... chapter 4... If it hasn't spent any goodwill I'd expect this to make some waves. Ridiculously good.

    And of course if you're American or Canadian make sure to get chapter 4 from the next issue of Weekly Shonen Jump US, which'll be out in a small matter of hours. And I believe through their improved system you can get the previous issues with chapters 1-3 in still (and all of chapter one in that nifty starter pack). Y'all know it's the better way.

    hm... kinda conflicted about the bully issue here. They were used for an easy explanation of why no one ever remembers areas being destoryed but it was still annoying.

    Anyway yeah, new chapter made me go "OH SHIZZLE!" at first.

    I guess this will allow for some hardcore battles.

    This could have some potential.

    Chapter 1 left me curious, chapter 2 bored me, chapter 3 didn't get interesting until the last page, and then chapter 4 blew me away. If the author would focus a lot more on the sci-fi/starship troopers kind of stuff and building a story from that stuff with possible space travel and whatnot, this could be a pretty good manga.

    Just don't.. PLEASE don't... for the love of god don't have the defenders of the planet beat up some more high school thugs.

    Finally got a chance to read ch4 and...yeah the author should have somehow put some of this action into chapter 1 and allocated some of the exposition (and bullies) into ch 3/4 as cool down/world building chapters. Maybe this serie is worth following afterall, but that only depends on whether the the author decides to focus on bullies again or these monsters. I fear this story might still have pacing issues though. I am curious to see where the next chapter goes...though it is still somewhat of a typical story right now.

    Not a huge fan of how seemingly underpowered the "main" character is but we'll see I guess

    I think it's a balance thing, innit. One of them's super strong and heartless, the other one's weak and has too much heart. both have an area to improve in.
