Well this book is great i must say its gory yet very enjoyable and fantastic i wish the the rest of series afther volume two was in english this series needs to be more well known
While this is a decent manga and, true to the Megaten moniker, it holds nothing back with its shock value, it could be rather confusing and even disinteresting to those who have not experienced the games the manga is based on, mainly Shin Megami Tensei: If..., which hasn't even recieved a fan translation yet. If you're interested, there is a translated playthrough available in the "Let's Play" archives at [...] (As well as playthroughs of SMT I and II, I might add).
Still, that doesn't really justify bringing stateside a manga based on games so obscure to the Western audience. I enjoyed this manga myself, but I can't really bring myself to reccomend it to just anyone as I simply can't imagine anyone except a Megaten fan to enjoy it.
In conclusion, if you're a big Megaten fan, go for it, and if not, decide carefully whether or not to purchase it.
Oh, also, there are a few gratuitously violent scenes including dead naked gore so if you aren't hardened to...
It's bizarre that as the first MegaTen-related manga to be officially released in the US, "Shin Megami Tensei: Kahn" seems to be tangentially related to the franchise at best. Inexplicably picking up in the middle of the story, the volume makes numerous references to previous storylines and volumes that have never been released stateside, leaving the reader in a haze of confusion and ultimate disinterest that not even the 10+ pages of backstory recap can alleviate.
