B. ICHI by Atsushi Ohkubo

BICHI_1 Most humans use only a small percentage of their brainpower, but a certain group of people called “dokeshi” can use a greater percent of their brain to unleash special powers, given one condition…For dokeshi Shotaro, that condition is doing one good deed a day. In exchange, he has the ability to use the powers of any animal by biting its bones. When Mana meets Shotaro on her travels, she expects nothing but trouble from the childish, ignorant boy—until he takes off into the sky like a bird. Mana may be impressed, but dokeshi are viewed as freaks by most of the population. And with the governor missing, all dokeshi are under suspicion. Ever-opitimistic Shotaro refuses to be discouraged and journeys on with Mana in the name of Justice!

Shotaro continues his search for Emine in the I.C. Prefecture. But a careless comment sends him on the run from an angry kappa. Meanwhile, Mana is eager to enter the Robot Fight Tournament — sponsored by the “Happy Factory” — and get another commendation, but Yohei senses there’s something far more sinister than the tournament going on at the Fear Factory…That doesn’t stop him from building a powerful battle robot that’s guaranteed to take home the prize. Just when Mana is confident of her victory, the Fear Robot itself steps into the arena — with NoFix the King of Spin at the helm!

Shotaro and Tool square off against the Fear Robot, but they can’t help feeling like something’s missing. With Mana still nowhere to be found after the attack at the Robot Fight Tournament and Yohei firmly in the clutches of the King of Spin, it seems the best course of action is a covert rescue mission into enemy territory! But even with its greatest creation out roaming the streets, the Fear Factory still houses a few terrors that threaten to stop our heroes dead in their tracks…
