No. 5 : 1 – In a world where most of the earth has become a harsh desert, the Rainbow Council of the Peace Corps has a growing crisis on its hands. No. 5, one member of a team of superpowered global security guardians and a top marksman, has gone rogue. Now the other guardians have to hunt down No. 5 and his mysterious companion, Matryoshka. But why did No. 5 turn against the council, and what will it mean for the future of the world?
No. 5 is a surreal manga, similar to a psychedelic trip where you cannot distinguish reality from illusion. The outstanding art of Taiyō Matsumoto creates this strangely charming atmosphere that you will probably never find in any another manga series.
