    Title: Verdant Lord
    Genre: Mecha, Sci-fi, Seinen
    Reading order: Right to left
    Author: TAKASHIGE Hiroshi
    Artist: SOGA Atsushi
    Status in Country of Origin: 9 Volumes - Complete
    Summary: Set in the near future where Mother Nature has decided to fight back against all of the human encroachment.
    It has your standard apocalyptic scenario, but we're right in the middle of the apocalypse actually happening, rather than the aftermath. Vines and foliage entangle cities, as large wooden mech-like creatures called Arethusa (named after one of the mythical Greek Hesperides that tended the gardens in a remote corner of the world) rampage through cities.
    Our main character is Souma Shin, a punk kid out of Japan. We start off with him coming to visit his twin (?) brother Ken. All hell breaks loose as Shin finds a group of small kids being used for military purposes, and tries to save them in the confusion created by an Arethusa invading the compound.

            If I remember it correctly, I think it is mentioned on EGS homepage (on left side in hiatus list) that it lacks a translator ^^
