Ray Manga (English)

RAY – Yoshitomi Akihito (the creator of Blue Drop)

Think Black Jack as a girl.

A young woman is almost killed in a violent attack on the street. She wakes up in an operating room, just before a mysterious man with a scar on his face (and strangely muti-colored hair, nudge, nudge) perfoms an emergency transplant and saves her life. (Cue mysterious music…)

Ten years pass and Ray is now a rogue surgeon herself, performing impossible transplants in illegal, unethical and wildly unrealistic situations. Her involvement is mostly with street kids, and her skills seems to be focused on the cute women caught up in the gang life. Obviously, I approve.

This story is silly with a captial ‘S’. But there’s insto-bonding with all the non-terminally wounded cute girls, and at least two kisses, lots of guns and girls and kidney transplantations on the fly. And no, I’m not kidding.

The art’s pretty decent, the story is not, and the characters are strictly two-dimensional strong/silent/deep types. Don’t hope for any intense emotional relationships here, but maybe there’ll be some sex. ^_^

Ratings:

Art- 8

Characters – 8
Yuri – 5

Overall – 7
