Description
Yajima Kintaro was once the infamous boss of the Hasshu League biker gang, who at their peak boasted more than 10,000 members, but after meeting and falling in love with a partially sighted girl named Akemi, he gradually mellowed and disassociated himself with gang life.

Unfortunately their love proved to be short lived when Akemi died in childbirth, but her last wish was that Kintaro would become a salaryman and raise their son, Ryuta in a stable environment. It's a request Kintaro cannot refuse, and after saving the life of the CEO of Yamamoto Construction he finally gets an opportunity to change his lifestyle once and for all. However, it seems the life of a salaryman is anything but stable when your employers are a multi-million pound constructor whose managing board is made up of corrupt ex-governmental ministers that are busy setting plans in motion to stage a hostile takeover and seize the company for their own nefarious dealings.

manga is great. fell in love with it when i first read it. anime was great as well. it's kinda

http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/content.php?contentid=57198 sums it up perfectly:
Comparisons to GTO are somewhat inevitable when talking about a show like Salaryman Kintaro. Not only did both make the transition from Manga to Jdrama and then finally Anime, but their main characters are also reformed motorcycle gang leaders who are trying to forge a more conventional life in a professional industry. However, whereas GTO is a very straight comedy-drama with a loveable but dim-witted protagonist, Salaryman Kintaro is a much more political affair that clearly has an agenda a mile wide. Its primary function appears to be to serve a life-affirming message for white-collar workers everywhere...

Kintaro is clearly a role-model for real-life white collar workers, but one that is nauseatingly characterized like some sort of superhero. The basic idea is that, because Kintaro is so honest and direct in his goals, he always achieves them.
