Story & Art By: Tomohiro Yagi


The Promised Neverland wasn't the only series that got recently picked up by Weekly Shonen Jump. Both Love Rush and Red Sprite were picked up as well. Love Rush is by the guy who made E-Robot, which is pretty meh. But Red Sprite... let's take a look

Warning for violence.



First chapter is available for free, along with the second and third chapters as well. So we'll look at a lot of the pages from the series as we go over things here.


Somewhere on the Edenia Borderlands, there resides this small orphanage in an abondeon church. The children all looked over by Father Duran, who cares for them all deeply. The leader of the kids is named Tatsu Frampt, who loves wearing a military uniform he keeps swiping out of storage.

One day, they are having class...

Duran: Airships are practically a symbol of our culture of technology.

They all chat as they design their own airship, which Duran helps dub the Sprite.

Duran steals a car and takes Tatsu with him. He tells the kid his heart was wrecked, but he's keeping himself alive by using electric pulses to keep what remains of his heart still beating.

They flee into the neighbor village and face down some more soldiers. Duran wipes out the ground troops with his sword easily. Then comes the gunship...

Duran: You... a-are... our... captain...

With that, Duran dies... and we cut to 6 years later. We are now in the Edenia Capital, where the next day a big celebration will happen. They'll be celebrating their victory in the recent war and to do that, they'll be unveiling their big super airship, the Scirvir.

The work platform collapses and a figure appears:

????: Getting my body used to the power. Learning how to fight. Six years of training. I've been waiting, biding my time and keeping my blade sharp... for the moment when both you and this were in this city at the same time.

I actually looked this author up and i was surprised to discover it is the same author as the short-lived "iron Knight".
and yeah, i can see similarities in the tone.

Why don't they use animal plasmarrow?

Two possibilities I can see. One, there's a major difference between the effects of injecting plasmarrow into humans as compared to animals, either in efficiency and output, or the process even working at all.

Or two, these are the kind of mad scientists that think you can only get results by using unwilling victims. They're a common sight in fiction :)

Hell, why not use volunteers, and rotate them sufficiently so they don't burn out? Get hundreds of poor, working class stiffs, pay them a good wage to get injected with Plasmarrow and spend a few hours a day plugged in to the generator.

Wouldn't be a worst job then any other work in Industrial Age Energy Production.

"So were you programmed to be comfortable doing this?"
"Hell no! i was programmed with a sense of shame in relation of the things i MUST do to acomplish my main purpose and have no choice in the matter. My life is a hellish existence of never ending suffering"
