Senkou no Night Raid
The story is set in Shanghai in 1931, when the Imperial Japanese Army has been dispatched to mainland China due to the relatively recent First Sino-Japanese War, Russo-Japanese War, and World War I. In this cosmopolitan city of intrigue, there is a special military spy organization called "Sakurai Kikan" that has since been buried in history.

This one got my attention. Curous to see who's pulling the strings in the end.
Interesting concept story wise. Artwork was good too.
A bold move to have show of special ops team in the period between the two World Wars. The super powered team seems more human and realistic to the overblown Super heroes of North America. No masks or capes needed or propaganda pasted across your suit like Captain America. This actually might affect the way we look at super power genre for years to come.
