Devil Survivor (#1)
Awesome! I really liked this battle-based demon shonen. Lots of action in the first volume with some plot developing. Everything is all a bit mysterious as to why these three teens are being called to fight the demons that seem to be gathering upon Tokyo. The characters are introduced nicely and the demons are absolutely awesome. The art is very well-done and I've got to say I was hooked only several pages in. This isn't just your typical demon-slayer; there's something unique here, a feel and atmosphere with this first volume, the rest we'll have to find out later as so much mystery surrounds the story yet. Bring on Vol. 2!
