It's no "One Hit Wonder"

I rate this as average because of two things, there are two parts to every manga: story and style. The first, story, is what largely is accountable for the "harm" done to this manga. It's plot structure over all lacks a much needed build of tension and resolve. 13 has a very loose ending which leaves the reader to only infer what comes next. While it meets the requirements for a yomikiri (the begining, the middle, and the end) the combination of the lack of a decent plot and individual characters ultimately was the cause of death for 13 (in my opinion). On the other hand, the style, the art of this manga far surpasses some of the other one-shots i've read except for the occasional oddly experimental expression. 13's art style is very professional and well balanced in how the panel layout was made. Would I pay the artist to write me a story, no. Would I pay them to draw it if the story was provided, definitely.
