I personally liked Kajika, I think everything's really good but there I felt the climax of the story was a bit disappointing, and the story was very predictable in the end in my opinion. Otherwise, I recommend it :] Read it when you got time!

An interesting fantasy adventure story, although it feels like it could have been more enjoyable if things had been elaborated upon more, perhaps by making it a 2 volume series. I notice a lot of similarities to both Dragon Ball and One Piece in this (Toriyama had probably read One Piece by this time, and the similarities were all from the first volume anyway). Firstly, the "guy meets bandit girl who uses him for her own ends" reminded me of how Luffy and Nami met. Secondly the "bounty hunter when necessary to make money" bit reminded me of Zoro.

As to the Dragon Ball similarities... Well, the tail was very reminiscent of Goku. In fact Toriyama even used the same gag about somebody mistaking it for a toy accessory that he used in the second chapter of Dragon Ball. Also, he had both Kajika and Isaza be the last surviving members of their race, and have a rivalry of strength going on, reminiscent of the relationship between Goku and Vegeta. And Isaza, by serving as the hired hand to capture the desired object from the hero, reminded me of Mercenary Tao. By the same token, Gibachi, by hunting after a mystical item, reminded me of Commander Red. And the ending, where Kajika's arm was injured and he saved all of his energy for one final blow reminded me very much of Goku's defeat of King Picollo.

And yet none of this felt rehashed or dull. Rather, I got a pleasant feeling of recognition when I recognized where Toriyama seemed to be getting an idea from. It felt comfortable to see the similarities in Toriyama's style, to see Kajika as Toriyama-esque story, but in a bit of a different way from Dragon Ball. All in all, it was a very enjoyable read for a quick, one volume series.

Well, if anyone had read Dragonball, this manga has some similarities to it.

(i.e.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
The main character has some inhuman strength or him battling the ringleader of the gang who had turned into a monster.
)

The story was okay, I guess... Nothing too oozing or interesting, but it was an enjoyable read.
