To save Hinata, and change the life he spent running away, hopeless part-timer Takemichi must aim for the top of Kanto’s most sinister delinquent gang!!
This is one of the best manga I have ever read I'm not good at summary's but I felt just had to say that this manga is so under rated. Try it and you'll see its so good.
The first episode of this anime really sparked my interests and I started reading the manga. I read the full 204 chapters (that are out as of writing this review) in a day and a half. It made me cry, made me laugh, gasp in shock, and put my hands in my hair with stress because of everything thats going on. It was great! It was fun to read and to experience all these different emotions while reading- that doesnt happen too often for me while reading. I will say it get's slightly repetitive, but it does sort of make sense and it adds a nice plot twist. It does feel slightly dragged out- you'll know what I mean once you've read it fully (just to make this spoiler safe). The characters, while at first I had my main favorite (also thanks to the anime), reading the story made me fall in love with different characters. While they're all delinquents, they do have their own traits. The downside of there being so many characters- that also have nicknames- it's sometimes a little tough to keep up who is who and who they're talking about. Also that they were all middle schoolers was a little weird... They could at least have been high schoolers, not that it made it more realistic, but at least they would have been older and I wouldnt have to wonder why a 14 year-old was holding a gun... But with all that said, it was very enjoyable and the pace is fine. The story line makes you want to keep reading! I spend all day reading instead of actually doing chores and errands... Oh well, the story was DEFINITELY worth it though! As of writing this, there are sadly only online book versions of this manga in English, but once they start getting published physically in English I am definitely adding them to my collection! I can highly recommend this story. It's not perfect, but it's very enjoyable if you look through the slight flaws the story has.
