His new girlfriend's just been found murdered and a turf war is escalating between two rival gangs.

I've read vol 1 so far.

The genre is urban shounen romcom crime/mystery drama. I bought this on an impulse, but was pleasantly surprised. The art is solidly good.
It has standard shounen elements: above-average but generic everyman protagonist with two friends, hot girls aplenty ('fiery promiscuous kogal', 'cute shy clingy/dependent MLI', milf etc), fair amount of fanservice. The worst failing of the series is the humour, which is all *very* lowbrow and simple.
The tone is initially comical, but it gets quite dark and gruseome by the last third, and the story is actually quite engaging, though not cerebral; serial murders, torture, etc. It does well with the actual plot and mysteries.
My second biggest complaint is that the secondary characters need much more development, especially Shun (the otaku), since they have potential. But then, see the title. The protag isn't that likable, which I've found to often be the case in this genre; but the secondary characters are.
This is just non-intellectual shounen, as it usually is; no frills. You know what to expect and know whether you'll like it. Personally I won't bother after vol 1.
