Description
M60-toting Kenji Hado, known as "the Hard", pays his divorce bills by working in the US as a bounty hunter. Masseria, a ruthless and ambitious mafia boss, targets his family - starting with the Hard's father-in-law, a Don in the NY mafia. Hard's aim, while poor when sober, becomes extremely accurate when drunk!

Note: The short story N.Y. Dust, in volume 12 of Riki-Oh, was the prototype for The Hard.

Classic early 90's Saruwatari   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

The Hard is a series that was conceived in Saruwatari Tetsuya's glory days, the early 90s. Back in those days, when he was handling up to 5 on-going series at one time and pushing out chapters on a regular basis. According to him, he was drawing approximately 200 pages per month. While Saurwatari's art might not be the most refined and detailed, that is still mind-blowing when you consider that so many authors struggle to draw 20 page chapters for their weekly magazines.

The Hard just might be Saruwatari Tetsuya's Magnum Opus. It has everything that a reader can hope for from a Saruwatari manga: Over the top action, tons of gore, immature jokes, grandiose plot lines, a dash of racism here & there, and adrenaline pumping entertainment.

The Hard is the story of Kenji Hado, a Japanese bounty hunter that is trying to make ends meet by paying his divorce bills and hoping to see his daughter Momoko from time to time. The kicker is that Hado is completely inaccurate with guns... until he gets drunk.

A very enjoyable read for those who enjoy Saruwatari's previous works.
