It's not a happy happy feelgood manga. If you thought the plot of Ressentiment kept kicking the "protagonist" in the nads too much, don't even consider this one.

It's not the silly kind of shounen "oh noes my clan was killed by some random great demon king" (or whatever) blows, this deals more in things that could actually happen to your own loser self, if you were unlucky enough. I don't want to spoil, but chapters 27-28 are probably the worst of the lot.

That's not to say it lacks for funny spots, or even romantic spots. But the overall impression is: harsh

I mean, wow. The main character starts out so lame that every masculine bone in my body is screaming for him to win. It goes to the very root of what what makes a man want to be something more than what they are. I mean, for someone who has a great life there's not much there, but even though most of us have ever sunk as low as our hero, most of us have been punked down pretty hard at some point in our lives. Some more than others. And this is quite possibly as much of an underdog as you can get. All I can do is keep reading and hope that the hero can rise from his state of pure mediocrity, find his pride (which he has already begun to do), and kick some ass.

As a guy who was always timid, I totally identify with the MC, and so I follow the story with a combination of chagrin and uneasy hope on his behalf. It's really the ultimate "the worm turns" story, with the MC being the lowest-down creature you can imagine at the start. Given what he is at the beginning, I've never been troubled that he's taking so long to change. You would expect his rise to Manhood to take years. Plus all the two greatest good things I look for in manga are here: realistic behavior and talk such as actual humans might do and say, AND great, careful drawing.

If you want a depressing story where it's quench your heart and then feels like destroying your room, try this. I almost broke my keyboard.

But it's good. It made you can hate the character like it's so real in your life. Ha.

Oh the humour... It's sad, it's painful, it's awkward... That is if you have some God damned issues, maaaan/wooo-maaaan!
Anyway, funny as hell story about a guy going through some serious stuff. Most of the 'stuff' could have been avoided if he had some damn balls, but I guess this story is about him growing a pair... But who am I to judge? biggrin

Best red while drinking condensed milk and crying while mumbling to yourself that you are fat.

man oh man, i thought this is a sport martial art manga, until i need to go through 30+ deppressing chapters until the MC start boxing.
i'm an introvert but i can say this MC is suckass.

i'll still reccomend this to read though because : (from 87 chaps)
- top notch art
- gradually better on story
- good box reference
- know that you're not the most bad luck person in the earth LOL

still, about the main girl:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the girl is very logical, normally, any girl wants to has bf that's looks cool, rich, or/and strong.
the aftereffect is another story. i'll slap that bitch when knew she still love the aoyama after pregnant and dumped

Okay, mixed feelings about this. Description: "about how and why a guy goes from a worker at a dead-end job to becoming a boxer". So far, he hasn't even started boxing yet. The story up 'till now in is one of the most depressing manga plots I ever read. Not to say that it's well drawn and well written, it's still severely depressing. Probably things will start to work out soon, but if you start reading this now up to the latest translated chapters, be prepared to be wrecked. Not for the fainthearted out there (March 2012).

This is where the arguably interesting author started to show writing chops but the work is very uneven as the exceptionally pathetic cast becomes the opposite of believable over time. As if their only joy in life is to keep making each other miserable and the transition from the first to the second half feels forced. The series is undeniably a fetish piece on top and the last volume will decide if the read was worth it or not. His later I Am a Hero (8,5/10) is worth it though and so are a lot of the shorts in Tokkaten (7,5/10).

This is my first comment even if i read manga for much time now. I wanna say something about that brunette woman protagonist
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
she is a curva , whore !!!

This manga express the worst situation you can get. Anyway is only my opinion
The main guy is a loser who he can't f .. express himself. He is a weirdo from my standards. Anyway i am only on the chapter 31 .. and maybe this manga will change.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
chapter 49 confirmed it ! she is a damn slut.... but this is the best chapter so far , and yes weird in manny ways but very cool moment

I had this at 9, but just changed it to 10. Its getting more and more interesting. I like the balance between the moods in the story and cant wait to read more. The style is really original in my opinion.
