    "Mankind would not have made it to the new age, encountering a crisis at the end of the last century that almost wiped them out... if it weren't for "them". In 1969, "they" who were still in their youth, created a symbol. In 1997, as the footsteps of the coming disaster slowly starts to show out, the symbol revives! This is a story about several boys, that save the world."

    Anyway... sounds interesting, ne? .
    Set in morden day times(1999ish), this manga, by Naoki Urasawa, is about Kenji who tries to save the world from this person known only as "Friend" who is plotting world domination. "Friend" is also using a symbol that Kenji and his friends created in their "secret base" as children.
    The story switches between the past & the present frequently but its all very well done and i can't say i was confused once by it (the switching) .

    Very interesting manga IMHO .

    You can get this manga, translated to english by The Hawks by visiting their website. Just click the link as posted above or to the left . I haven't see this manga in Kinokuniya or anywhere else... anyone have any info ???

    Oh, one of my IRC friends who introduced me to this manga said this about it and i totally agree .
