Meh and dropped
I agree this manga is just a dumb "edgy" shonen with pointless rape and murder but no consequences, realism or long term storytelling. Furthermore the ending is just weak. I am left disappointed overall and also dislike his Resident Evil mange for similar reasons. At least the art is very nice ! Naoki should just draw and not write.

Because it's labeled as Seinen here on MU. It might be a cool Shounen manga but people were expecting Seinen. When i read a Seinen i don't think i'm going to be reading a Naruto-like story where assassins, soldiers and spies don't kill people. When i read about Yakuza, Mafia and gangs in a Seinen i expect more.
About the previous comment
If I'm correct this is a shounen manga, not seinen... Anyway, it is more or less on par with GTO or Kamen Teacher. No progress, that is pretty out of nowhere. The development here is far from being top priority. This manga is really light and relaxing. With no hard feelings. Pure entertainment. And you should remember that this is a monthly manga. It should not be read as 22 volumes at once. I really liked it. comparing it with Naruto would be a waste. Most of shounen is that way. What's the problem?
Not so good.
I've read it alll. And this manga doesn't have a feeling of one story.
First, there is "Cherry Boys" story. Saru and his school friends are main characters. Weak plot. Typical school ecchi comedy with a bit of romance. Even though it's ecchi, you won't see more than 3-4 ecchi panels per volume. Inconclusive ending. Well, from volume 1 to volume 22, there is almost no progress in this story. 4/10
Secondly, "Heaven's Crow". This is a story about Saitou, Saru has secondary role here. I was expecting bloody yakudza action out of this. But instead it was like Naruto with seinen characters.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
1 death, almost no guns and goody-goody main lead... Is this really seinen?
Anyway, first Yukki ark (vol 1) is the best ecchi story, Scouts ark (vol 3-4) is the best Heaven's Crow story. Everything else is boring.
This is a gem. Even if I try to say something, I will only be repeating what everyone below me said: Totally Awesome. The violence, the sex... everything just fits right in. Whats more, its damn funny.
Read a lot of manga in my time, this is by far the funniest one. Worth picking it up.
Holy Shit this is one hell of a funny manga-I laughed my ass of in EVERY SINGLE CHAPTER so far(and thats 31scanlated chapters so far which is shame,because there's 21 RAW VOLUMES SO FAR!!!!) Main char is a locksmith named Saru,a brilliant at his work and useless in his love life.With his fatty friend(btw sex obsessed freak) they solve cases of stolen sex tapes of idols,class mates losing virginity and so on... Artwork is also great Can't wait for more chapters to be scanlated of this jewel

wow jus simply wow
i picked this up on whim and was like holly shit, this is f@$kin awesome. Some parts can be rly graphic (epically the first 2 arcs) but the light moments r rly funny, so it has a great balance to it. I 100% recommend this
Great so far
I've read up all the way to volume 17, waiting on my 18&19 >.<, but so far everything has been awesome, the story gets more and more interesting each volume and i cant stop rereading old chapters because they're just so funny!
EDIT: Just bought volume 20 and I gatta say its still keeping me interested.

A skinny dude and a large dude are always a great comedic team. Add the fact they are obsessed about sex (but both are virgins) and you get situation after situation of hilarity!
