Synopsis

Justice Akatsuka, aka Seigi, has a tattoo on his palm.

It’s not just any tattoo - it’s a ‘Jumon’, a cursed crest and ancient weapon that warps time and space, creating a void and destroying everything around it.

Seigi is dragged into the conflict between America and Serinistan over the Jumon, and ends up having to help Izzie, a young woman from the American army, retrieve the cursed crest.

In the midst of this battle surrounded by conspiracy, powerful Shields, people who bear cursed crests, start to appear before Seigi one after another. Through his incredibly fierce fights with the Shields, the magnificent mystery behind the Jumon begins to become clear.

Three Episode Impression

As each episode progresses we see that Seigi is still in confusion about what his tattoo even does, until he's confronted by a superhuman beast that is out for blood. Bluesy tells him that his power lies within the blood and that he must wield this power in order to pursue the deadly factions that surround them. He also must deal with the fact that he too is now a threat and Bluesy informs him that they must retrieve his tattoo, dead or alive. We see some really surprising situations transpire throughout each episode, with the third episode leaving you with your jaw dropping in bewilderment. What we didn't really find intriguing however, was how the back story regarding the creation of the tattoos was never really explained to us, and so we were somewhat confused as to why Seigi was chosen and why the organization seeks it so desperately. The direction of the show despite some of the back story being a mystery is still fantastic, because they quickly introduce you to each important character and give you a nice breakdown of what to expect from them. There's definitely much to look forward to from this show, we just hope they don't rush it and kill a promising story leaving a permanent bad tattoo on our conscience.
