ib – Instant Bullet – is a manga work that was serialized in Dengeki Maow from 2013-2015 by the creator of the very popular manga “Kaguya-sama wants to tell you”, Aka Akasaka. The book is completed in five volumes.
The title ‘ib’ (Instant Bullet) is a magical power given to those who have ‘bad intentions’ towards this world.
A boy, Kuro, and a girl, Sera, who are gifted with ib, and other lonely boys and girls, who are filled with anger, sadness, and despair, but at the same time seek for warmth, kindness, and happiness, think of ways to use their own ib to destroy the world.
Who will be the one to destroy the world? Who will stop it?
Many readers have come to empathize with the feelings of the characters who try to find their place in the world while hurting themselves and others through the struggle of “not being the person they want to be.” “ib – Instant Bullet” is different from “Kaguya-sama wants to tell you” in that it is full of the author’s charm.
This is a different story from “Kaguya-sama wa Tsutsumi wo Sore wo Tsukaete”, which is filled with the charm of the author, Akasaka Aka.
This work, which depicts the loneliness of boys and girls and the gentleness that lurks in their hearts, was called “a masterpiece that sticks in the heart”, but in the end the series was terminated.
As a result, there were times when the characters weren’t fully developed and the story moved forward abruptly in the middle of the book.
The author, Akasaka Aka, who says “‘ib Instant Bullet’ is like my life’s work since I was in high school,” wrote about his disappointment on the back cover of the final volume (volume 5)!
I can’t imagine it ending before I’ve even collected the title yet. I’m not going to finish it before I’ve collected the title. I’m determined to continue the story. (Omitted) I’d like to do it when I’m a little more known as a manga artist, when I’m in a position of power, when I’m in a position where I’m free to take my time drawing Instant Bullets without being locked into page counts, sales, my bank account, or anything else.
Now that Kaguya-sama wants to tell you, a big hit, you may one day be able to read the full version of ib Instant Bullet!
I’m going to spoil this film in its entirety from start to finish!
