Description
Oumi Shigemori, also known as Hanjo, is from a long line of merchants. He knows the tricks of the trade when it comes to business and making profits. But Hanjo understands that profits have to be long term and taking short cuts in business decisions eventually leads to a collapse. Making sure the buyer, the seller, and the community all benefit from the transaction is Hanjo’s philosophy. He travels around the country, helping both small and big businesses turn their finances from a molehill to a mountain.

Unfair reviews

If even after you saw that this manga is just 2 volumes long you insist of reading these reviews why not go and read it, indeed it has an abrupt ending, but in just 19 chapters manages to tell you the importance of a relation between the buyer the seller and its social surroundings being also called "the world", make the big picture short this could have run long giving us a lot of examples, but with just 3 stories:
1- it teaches us how to appreciate one self talent and seek others ways to put it at work after facing defeat, some bad decisions and the lust of wrong spending money.
2- how to respect the customer, as monetary profit can lead to the wrong choices if you stomp the customer, and how the trust between a business is bigger than trend.
3- for the last one lest said that even if your main business didn't get to outcast the other if yours still helped your community in this case the other stores, it is still a win even greater than that of the opposing team, and all that around the 3 principles explained in this manga.

So it is indeed unfair to give this a rating lower than 8.The fact that a live lesson instead of a emotional feel was the point that this manga gives despite its length is more than enough.
So to said it went nowhere is to said little as in the end we all learned the point didn't we?

hmm...5 out of 10 is my average score - it means not good and not bad, just average. But somehow, this doesn't seem to be a five, more like a four. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad, it's just that as Caityluu said, it goes nowhere. I can sympathsise because mangas often get cut off it their not popular, but two volumes seems really short. The ending is abrupt and uncalled for and it was obvious the author was planning on making a longer series.
It's not bad, and if you like this type of thing then go ahead and read it. But for me, there was just something lacking.

That's it? It was going strong.. and then just ends all of a sudden. Interesting concept, passable artwork, and good story work. I'm giving it a 5/10 because it went absolutely nowhere.
