Summary :

Jin is a mysterious kid who looks to be about 6-10 years old being taken care of by his beggar grandfather. He has a totally unknown past, we see him beating up thugs and purse snatchers early on (for a 10,000 yen reward), but in the next scene his grandfather has to explain to him the importance of money, and the meaning of love, kindness, death, and other common sense parts of life.

Their idyllic life is interrupted by a mysterious monster much stronger than Jin. He kills Jin's grandfather, but not before dying himself (courtesy of gramps). Jin doesn't understand death, and ends up being taken care of by Akemi, a girl who he rescued before. We also learn that Jin isn't exactly human and seems to have superhuman strength and regeneration. He is called Zet by several men who are searching for him from the Amagi corporation, a classic "super-company," immensely powerful and with many different branches, including some suspect research involving creating a "perfect human."

Zetman moves quickly, Jin's life is constantly being shattered by the struggle between the monsters (Players) and the enormously powerful Amagi corporation. Other central characters include Kouga and Konoha Amagi, brothers and sisters approximately Jin's age. Their father runs Amagi corp, and their grandfather is heavily involved with Jin and the Players. By volume 8, which was just recently completed, there have been several time jumps and Jin is now "about 17" by his own estimate.
