Description
It's the year 2020 AD, and Tokyo II is a city infested with crime. Women can no longer go out in the streets alone without being victimized. Not wanting their daughter to suffer the same fate, Tsukasa Kozuki's cop parents raise her as a boy. When they are suddenly killed by one of the yakuza's in-fights, Tsukasa is left orphaned on the streets along with her three brothers. With no other options, she goes to the only person she can think of for help: pokerface Ryuji Shirogami, her classmate of 8 years and also the head leader of the powerful yakuza group, Kuryugumi. Ryuji, whose father was also a victim of the same yakuza fight, agrees to take her on as his personal bodyguard. As they set out to find their enemy, Ryuji slaps an increasing amount of debt onto Tsukasa, using all manner of ploys to keep the reluctant Tsukasa by his side.

TCP has a unique story idea but is not a favourite of mine. The male didn't really have any character development - which was disappointing. Other than that, the story was fairly enjoyable, though it was dragged out in some parts, until it got exciting again in the second half to build up to the climax. I was okay with the art, but for those who mind proper body proportioning, beware. Their limbs can become outrageously long at times. Tsukasa and Ryugi, the main leads, also did NOT look like actual 14-year olds - more like 18. Other than that, the story was decent enough.

I love this manga!!! <3<3!!! I cannot believe I ever put this one on the back-burner.

There are some comedy manga that I can quietly snicker to, but this one? NO POSSIBLE WAY!!
I love this author's other work Skip Beat too (I actually read SB first) and yeah the art is similar (duh!!) but It's different in a way (it seems more angular and more shaded) and I love that!!!!
There is obvious tension, both relationship-type tension and violence-type tension (seeing as it's a yakuza manga) but it's more of a battle-comedy with love intermixed than a love-comedy with battles (however that would work) and it's refreshing.
The author never delves too far into the romance aspect but I didn't feel that is was lacking because of that. The comedic antics of the two main characters totally captured my heart and the range of emotion from each of the more prominent characters was very realistic (rather than the simplistic emotions displayed in most shoujo or avoided in some battle manga). It was all balanced quite nicely.

I didn't give it a full 10 because I rate on how many times I could read and reread something in a row (and seeing how I don't reread, or even rate, something that I don't think is done well in the first place...) and I know that the shoujo-esque would get on my nerves after the 3rd or 4th time lol.
BUT... I could laugh at Tsukasa's comedic relief every time.
I also felt a little lost sometimes (but that may have been due to translation issues) and there was a lot of details that just got skipped over or were deemed unimportant and excluded that I would have liked to know/hear about and that contributed to the slightly lower score as well. Though, it didn't take away from the manga very much to have those details excluded I just felt that I was left out (lol... though it's not like everyone else wasn't left out either but that's just how it made me feel).
Plus, this is one that I couldn't just start anywhere and just plain enjoy it (aside from the comedy) and unintentionally keep reading from where I started. The plot and the happenings are all intertwined, so I would need to read from beginning to end every time. That is both an asset and a drawback (but it's like six in one and a half dozen in the other to me; depends on what I'm feeling that day lol). I do like that there is nothing really unimportant that was written. Yes there is some flashback filler but it was often necessary; especially for those of us with a terrible memory or intermittent reading.

This is one of those that I could read and reread and love it no less than the first time I finished it! I seriously can't believe I waited so long to read it!!

i don't remember enough of it to write a full review, but after two years, I can say that I remember smiling with satisfaction upon finishing the series.

It had a slow and aggravating start for me, but it somehow manage to pull through in my eyes as a masterpiece.

This is one of my all time favorite manga. After reading it for the third time it still has not lost its charm. It's rare to find such strong characters (both figuratively and literally) and plot in shoujo manga. I would have given TCP a 10/10 for its plot, action, comedy, characters, and subtle (perhaps slow would be more accurate) romance. However, since having an artist friend who is super-picky about proportions and such, I'm afraid I have to give it an 9/10 for some of the ridiculously small heads, super long legs, etc. I suppose that they're 14 is also a difficult point but manga logic, right?
I must also say, although Tsukasa was my favorite character, I believe now my favorite is Munakata despite his brief appearance.

The art is something of an acquired taste(it improves quite quickly after the first few chapters, but some may still not find it to their taste). The first few chapters in general are somewhat amateur-ish in many ways, but it really picks up quickly and is just an outstanding manga full of amazing plot and character development, and a lot of humor. It's fun, fairly mature, but playful. It's surprisingly dark at times, but it definitely won't make you feel down for long. If you have triggers involving drugs or rape, I'd advise against this as a read though.
It's a good story, with some sci-fi elements to it and the usual manga-style disregard for things like the laws of physics. I've reread it quite a few times, and it never stops being fun.

This has got to be the funniest manga I have ever read in my entire life. The deformed facial expressions and the hilarious dynamic between the male and female protagonists are super entertaining. Amidst all the comedy and laughter lies a dark and complex plot, an ancient legend of sort, romance (love triangles/rectangles? haha), and awesome action scenes. The main character isn't your normal damsel in distress. In fact, she's a super bad ass personal bodyguard (not to mention bad tempered) of a Yakuza leader and can slash down any enemy with her metal chain whip...though that's not to say there aren't any knight in shining armor scenes.

I highly recommend this manga. It's a pity it wasn't made into an anime.

At first I just thought that it's a bit good, since it didn't have a overall goal other than the debt that I kept forgetting about.At first it was just about betray, drugs, fights then it all tied together and ended some of the other love problems. It had it ups and downs, and the funniest part is him sneaking in her room, best part the whole series

This manga was definitely one of my favorites. I love the love development between Ryuji and Tsukasa. The story line itself felt a little long (could have cut a lot of parts out) and the ending felt unfinished (a few missing details about what happened in the past) and not a very complete love story.

The reason this is one of my favorite is because of all the hardship and misunderstandings the main pair had to go through just to get their feeling across (seriously 19 volumes and near the end they finally has a chance at being together). It has its serious moments and its hilarious moment. Alos the art gets better (chapter 1 is really bad but it gets better).

Yoshiki Nakamura really knows how to balance, action, drama & comedy in a manga. Yeah there are lot of titles out there who have the same themes but they just felt force to me unlike TCP. I laugh with Tsukasa's antics, I cried when one of the main characters had to die, enjoyed the last fight scenes morever I feel the romance between the main leads. I really recommend this manga. It's very well paced. Actually I want to read more but I guessed all good things must come to an end so I just re read the series whenever I'm bored reading cliche mangas.
