Read the first chapter. It's fantastic. I feel really strong Assassination Classroom vibes, so hopefully it keeps to the tone of this first chapter and doesn't go down any sociopathic rabbit holes.

It's a really good first chapter. Really gets down the John Wick vibe.

Thought it was good. It definitely caught my attention in 1 chapter!

I'm guessing it will do well with the older readers

Very good first chapter. Anyone else notice that the main character doesn’t speak at all? I wonder if that’s going to be a running gimmick.

He has actually one spoken line, though, spoiler[when he offers Shin the job at his shop]. There's a real speech bubble mixed in with his usual thought bubbles.

In general, though, I'm assuming that's why he has a telepath as the other half of his comedy duo. Sakamoto can be the "man of few words" to most characters, but we still have an audience stand-in reading and reacting the thought bubbles and imagination panels along with us. I hope there's quite a lot of fun to be had with a dynamic like that. (And Shin is precious, so emphasis on "hope" and "a lot".)
