    This manga series is like mild mannered Indiana Jones goes to work in White CollarYou guys it’s pretty awesome

    I don't read a ton of manga but I have read everything translated from Naoki Urasawa and Master Keaton will definitely keep me on board as well Urasawa seems to have co writers or maybe he only does the art? on this one Hokusei Katsushika and Takashi Nagasaki but it still has a lot of what I like about Urasawa's projects notably interesting characters clever moments and compelling storiesMaster Keaton is a mix of Indiana Jones Sherlock and MacGyver a former SAS survival expert who is now a part time archaeology lecturer and part time field investigator for Lloyd's of London This is episodic than Urasawa's robot war epic Pluto or suspense horror Monster but it has some running threads with Keaton's relationship with his daughter father and ex wife The stories take him around the world investigating insurance claims which sounds kind of boring except that he gets involved in dangerous digs in China or a drug running syndicate government agents and a lot on those casesKeaton will often spot objects or environmental factors that he later uses to battle his attackers or in this book's two part and maybe best story survive a deadly desert trek while keeping some fellow archaeologists alive There's an element of uirky humor to Keaton not unlike how Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock has trouble relating to the world around him but there are also lots of great moments of suspense and pathos Definitely worth a read

    I love the artwork but the story not so much Kind of an Indiana Jones mixed with MacGyver The chapters just seem to be a little haphazard without any flowing narrative Just a bunch of shorter stories with a weak tie in

    One of my favorite manga about one of my favorite detectives in comics Taichi Hiraga Keaton wants to be an archaeologist Since that hasn't worked out full time he takes side jobs as an insurance investigator on suspicious cases He seems like a gentle affable fellow and he is But he's also a former member of the British Army's SAS special forces The Master Keaton series tells various tales about his cases adventures and family stories about his relationships with his teenage daughter and elderly fatherWhat I love about this series is that while Taichi is smart skilled and deadly there is absolutely no machismo about him He's refreshingly different from the stereotypical action hero And he's so nerdy and passionate about archaeology You just want to make him a cup of tea his mom's British after all and help him brush up his cover letter applying for another teaching positionAfter a good number of volumes in this long series 12 volumes total I felt like it lost its focus on the combination I liked which is Taichi's investigative brain action occasional bits of his family life YMMV and it's definitely worth reading at least the first handful of books

    35 stars to be exact I found this absorbing and fun; the artwork is detailed and gorgeous the stories compelling The main character is an archaeology lecturer who moonlights as an insurance investigator His previous training with the British SAS stands him in good stead in his adventures but the history presented is thankfully not pro empire so far Think a taciturn less annoying scholarly MacGyver

  6. Noninuna Noninuna says:

    387 starsThis manga has me curious for uite sometime it just that I cant seem to find it anywhere until now The drawing is just okay The characters are really strong in my opinion really distinctive in terms of characterization Although the story got me praising left and right about how diverse it goes without being disrespect because the story deals with all sort of different ethnicity from different part of the world there's no an overarch storyline in this volume We got short stories from various timeline to answer all the 4W1H uestions about the main character Mr Taichi Hiraga Keaton It got me confused a few times when the shift of timeline happened The short stories themselves are uite good because they explains a lot However I will definitely continue with the series

    Archaeology lecturer Taichi Hiraga Keaton has a uniue combination of skills that he puts into unusual use in his freuent sabbaticals from teaching Called on as an insurance investigator when circumstances are suspicious and extraordinary his encyclopedic knowledge is almost as useful during his adventures as his past training as a SAS survivalistAs a big fan of Urasawa's manga I was excited to try out this work from earlier in his career The story from Hokusei Katsushika has a similar feel to Urasawa's own writing in his later works This is a dense read with a lot of text and details about ancient art history and legends It done well though and is well worth the effort The blending of seemingly disparate professions and topics is fascinating and the stories somehow manage a light touch despite heavy material Keaton has an aloof exterior hiding competence and adaptability which is used to good effect in driving the stories along His daughter and other supporting cast members are well developed and fill out the world nicelyThe art is of course Urasawa's usual high ualityAs odd as Indiana Jones as an insurance investigator might sound it really works and Master Keaton is a great compelling read

  8. Jennifer Jennifer says:

    I love the Master Keaton series and not only because I seem to reliably enjoy seinen older teenadult male series and empathize with the characters even though I'm not the target demographic at all The character of Keaton has the skills of James bond and MacGyver but he has the stereotypical affable sometimes spacey demeanor of an academic Keaton is definitely a Gary Sue and it seems like an archaeology professorfatherformer SAS member might be too much but it works and it works well Because Keaton is all of these things as well as a father the series bounces through different types of stories historical spy slice of life family and others while containing information about archaeology current as of thet time the manga was written events and politics while being fast pacedentertaining to read because of the action

  9. Jason Jason says:

    Sherlock Holmes MacGuyver and Indiana Jones starring a guy with less ego than any of them Plus you learn stuff

  10. Haruka.I Haruka.I says:

    I finished reading Master Keaton vol1 I feel the manga is interest because Keaton has two jobs that a proffer of university and a insurance investigator Well he goes some countries so he can understand and speak some languages He is a influencer for me because his looks is normal however he can speak some languages he learns survival skills and intelligence Also some antiuities appears each story so I can learn about it They really existed in this world so they are attractive Then I think that script of Master Keaton take various themes Each story have each theme and they tell how relation of people spiritual change and what is a human Characteristics are angular external and realistic Therefore the manga use birds eye view These effects tell readers that Keaton goes extended place In this Manga my impressive story is chapter8 becaus delineation is beautiful Also for a change it use Internal and zoom inwith a lot of scenes I think that the story tells readers emotions of characters I could get variety knowledge from Master Keaton I enjoyed it I will read vol2 This manga is old but I think that it has gleamy attractive
