New Series Kiriwo Terrible by Hiro Morita

There are huge monsters wreaking havoc in Mikagura Kiriwo's city. Building on his father's work, Kiriwo has created a serum that turns him into a giant monster for a short time. He uses this serum to help protect the town from a monster one day--only to find that everyone thinks he's an enemy, too! Everyone at school and in the media hates the "black monster" that he became, due to the massive destruction he did to the town around him. A girl from his class even has to quit school, due to problems caused by the "black monster." Will Kiriwo be able to show that his monster form is really intended to be a savior?

Kiriwo Terrible by Hiro Morita began publication in issue 14 of Weekly Shonen Sunday.
After reading the above description many Weekly Shonen Jump readers would feel a moment of deja vu as Kiriwo Terrible sounds very similar to two series from Jump, Hachi and Iron Knight.
Just like those series, it would be understandable if many thought that Kiriwo Terrible would flop.
However after reading the first chapter it was clear that Kiriwo Terrible was much different from Hachi and Iron Knight.
Morita is a rookie so lets see how far he can develop this story.
