    This one is good and a safe bet for avoiding the axe. Almost everything else that came since last year is getting cut or under heavy risk.

    The first chapters are weird an unexpected but carried by action and making you want to know where it goes. In the last chapters seems like stuff is established and the premise is quite interesting.

    Scrolled down. Immediately saw a boob getting groped in the very title art. Nope.

    Chapter 10 is out.

    Fun and relaxing chapter, they do look really nice in suits.
    Also is nice seeing that they are getting better at working as a duo

    Men, the worldbuilding in this manga is awesome!
    What an creative and intriguing concept, also the members of the union are cool.
    I want to see more of them, also Andy and the main girl (i still have problems writing her name) are really cute.

    I also enjoy it, but as noted, the artist thought giving off rapey vibes was a good way to attract new readers. For people interested in the manga but (understandably) turned off by that kind of thing, I can say that it's dropped pretty early.

    Good to know, it's a massive turn-off, even if played for gags or whatever.

    Yeah, it hasn't been used since the first couple chapters, now it's all focused on the action. Thankfully.

    Yeah, the first chapter is kind of a bad way to start this story, because after that, things are way more calm than that chapter seems to suggest.
    I hope more people give it a chance because it's a great story and the characters and setting are amazing.

    Well, I guess the book didn't lie about where Unrepair is:

    The fight with RIP is amazing.
    Great use of the powers of all characters, nice artwork and a creative strategy.

    I hope all fights in this manga are like this one.

    Also congratulations for winning the new manga award!

    That's right! This just won the Tsugu ni Kuru Manga Taisho Award! (award for up-and-coming series)
    https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/int...awards/.135835

    It seems to be plenty popular in Japan, WHY it's not getting more love here I don't know.

    Eh it happens, not all manga series will click. Maybe it's just needs some time to stew

    I've enjoyed it a lot but it's just that there's not much to talk about in the beginning of any manga when it's still in building stages.

    An unexpected mini-timeskip:

    Thankfully only a few months, a big time skip can bring so many potential problems.

    This twist would hit harder if this character had had more than, I dunno, 5 lines beforehand:

    I feel like this series is getting rushed, and I'm not happy about it.

    Not really feeling rushed, at least not recently. The first set of quests had the 99th penalty and after it failed we knew that failing 101 means Ragnarok. That part was already rushed since the concept was introduced. Under got a proper introduction last arc and there was some extra info about them and God last chapter.

    The manga is doing very well in Japan, so it's not taking drastic measures to avoid the axe either.

    About the traitor, he got the most development after Andy, Fuuko and maybe Chen. At least it was always established as a generally nice guy, a parental figure to Tatiana (he shot everyone except her, by the way) and a lot of hints that he was blind. The fact that these quest were open for everyone also means he didn't need the Union at all. If he had betrayed them earlier he would have automatically failed as long as there was a single quest that required more than 1 people from the roundtable (he even says it out loud "open to everyone, so here it is").

    Maybe if the author had starter with something like 97 or 98 penalties there would have been chance for some more developments like some explanations on artifacts and more fleshing of characters.

    Bit more of a twist to the twist, but definitely getting more emotional:
