Description
Ukyou, the spoiled only son of the most powerful mob boss in the region, is smitten at first sight with Kakeru, the cute son of a local ramen-ya. But when he goes to declare his undying love, he discovers that thanks to the bullying of a rival mob, the ramen shop is deep in debt, Kakeru's father is in the hospital, and Kakeru is struggling to keep the place going on his own. Naturally, Kakeru now HATES yakuza. Fortunately, the kid is too dim to recognize Ukyou without his sunglasses and loud suits, so Kumichou-san (Mr. Mob Boss) whips off the sunglasses and becomes Ukyou-kun, homeless guy who needs a job at the ramen shop to survive. Hijinks ensue.

Silly but fun yakuza manga

Three volumes, apparently. From the first page of the first volume itís abundantly clear that this is an exaggerated story with over-the-top characterisations. Its genre is a hybrid between restaurant/yakuza, but doesnít take either element very seriously: when Ukyou returns home to the family compound, for example, he is greeted by a double row of black-clad guards bowing in tandem. In other scenes the traditional yakuza rituals are parodied and the most common stereotypes about their personalities (e.g. a fondness for hideous pastel suits) are rolled out repeatedly.
