Speed Grapher
Smile for the camera, or perish in the glare of its lens... In the Tokyo of the future, a second Japanese economic bubble has propelled the city into a feeding frenzy of desire. The epitome of this new ethos is the Roppongi Club, an elite society serving Tokyo's most privileged citizens with fantasies beyond their wildest dreams. Meet Saiga, an intrepid photojournalist and war photographer intent on infiltrating the Roppongi's shadowy, secret world. But when he gets there, he discovers much more than just a glamorous hostess club. He discovers Kagura, a modern goddess who's touch transforms Saiga into the Speed Grapher, a man with the supernatural ability to make anything and anyone he photographs explode. And that's just the beginning...
Speed Grapher follows the exploits of former war photographer Tatsumi Saiga, who investigates a secret fetish club for the ultra-wealthy. He tries to photograph the club's "goddess", a 15-year-old girl named Kagura, but is discovered. As he is about to be killed, Kagura kisses him, granting him the ability to destroy anything he photographs. Kagura's body fluids can give people bizarre abilities related to their fetishes or obsessions. The story develops as Saiga aims to grant Kagura's desire (her freedom), while on the run from the Secret club and the Tennouzu Group mega-corporation that operates it. (Source: M-U)
