Script error The French Manga-News regarded the first volume as "a good action manga if you like the author or the genre, but dispensable for others". While praising the art, the Manga-News reviewer felt the story was unoriginal. He felt that the "non-stop action" prevented the series from sinking into caricatures, and noted that the fanbase of the manga kept the manga going into a fourth volume, and found the last volume "most interesting".
