Actual name is ES00 or "Shuro", named after the palm leaves in the bible. In Catholicism, a cross applied to the forehead with the ashes of shuro leaves a sign of repentance. Perhaps this name was born of the researchers' feelings of guilt for playing God and creating a human being; he is a genetically engineered human, made by the National Hygienic Laboratory. Though unexpected by the research staff, he was born with a power to "hack" into other people's minds, save for a few. The ES gene grants him a lifeline of at least two centuries, and a flawless immunity system. "Ryosuke Akiba" is actually someone else's identity Shuro uses through his powers. The real Akiba previously died in an accident. Shuro has a slight sense of justice and morality.

    Official Announcement

    Hi everyone,

    As you may have known, our team is working hard on a new digital comics platform that lets you enjoy comics & officially support the creators & publishers that you love. Once it’s launched in the near future, you will not be able to read content anymore on

    MR Comics Membership still works normally & it will be carried over to the new platform. Your reading data (such as Favorites & Recent) will also be migrated over to the new platform. We will have more details once it’s available.

    However, please expect that more titles will be removed from this site as we comply with all content takedown requests in the upcoming periods.

    Thank you for supporting us,

    The Manga Rock team
