I have it and read it. It's kinda cool, the art is really good but the action scenes are kinda tough to follow sometimes. Story-wise it's par for the course, mixing real world Parkour-Freerunning with more mystical stuff like seeing in 4th and 5th dimensions.

I'd recommend getting/reading it if for nothing else the novelty of it: it'll probably be a while until another manga like this is published.

Manga means comic. It can be a Manga if it is not from Japan as long as it is in Comic form.

That's pretty much the truth.

Anime= Japanese word for animation... We just decided that Anime means a certain style of animation coming from Japan.

Manga= Same as above... Just with comics.

I've read this before and I liked it, but it seems like it's going to end up sticking to the same linear theme of most anime/manga, which really turned me away from manga in the first place.
