No. 5 : 2 – The members of the Rainbow Council were created to be superior to normal human beings and to keep the peace. But with no wars to fight, what purpose do they serve other than public relations? The strange psychic twins called No. 4 use their power to try to convince No. 5 to reverse his course as he tries to stay one step ahead of his pursuers. Meanwhile, No. 1, the leader of the Council, thinks back to a bloody incident 15 years ago that bears on the present day.
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.
