I dropped this series around chapter 11 because of the bad translations and the mixed up pages (the zip files would always display out of order for me in CDisplay). Anyway, after reading yokeepsitreal's comment about not judging until after the monk training, I decided to pick it up again, and I am so glad I did. This pretty much has everything I look for in a manga:
Action - Considering it's about gang wars and the mafia, there's never a lack of action, and after the training with the monks, the action is pretty epic.
Art - Seriously beautiful, realistic during the fight scenes.
Comedy - Boichi-sensei draws the cutest chibis ever. There is never a lack of comedy, even during the more serious parts of the manga. I found myself cracking up in the dead of night while I was catching up.
Characters - Are excellent. Ken himself is so loveable while he tries to resist all the beautiful girls coming onto him because he already loves someone. Tae-soo is the brains of the group, but also gives off an ambivalent feeling, making me question whether he has ulterior motives.
Romance - the romance between Ken and Yumin is really cute, though it hasn't really been developing in the latest chapters (65-77) because of the Idol Arc.

Anyway, I definitely recommend this, no doubt you'll be addicted after a couple of volumes~

First off, you can't judge this manga based off the first 5 to 10 chapters. After
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
their training with the monks
the story starts to really pick up and the characters start to develop into super likable beings. Overall, this manga is has the potential to become fuckin amazing and I can't wait to read more.

You get to experience everything in this manga. The characters are interesting, the story changes pace to keep your attention, the artwork is beautiful, and it leaves you craving for more. I've yet to find a comparable manga worthwhile.

I wonder why people complain about Rape in a Seinen Mafia manga, I mean I'm not a gangster but I'm 110% sure than gangsters are related to sex industries and also rape itself. So, it's a bit close to reality.
Regarding the plot, a guy who wants to become a cop in order to win a woman but he transforms into a mafioso? EPIC MAIN PLOT DUDES!
And finally, Artwork? It is one hell of an artwork.

Yeah, someone might disagree, but I bet they like the stupid "boobs all over the place" manga/manhwa better.

It's moving really fast, these first couple of chapters. Like, really fast. The comedy is sorta okay, not the worst, and gives you a good chuckle. Art is awesome, there's really no way to explain it. The story needs some more chapters to reveal itself, but from what there is now you know there's gonna be drama, action, and comedy in the future. I can't wait to see how it lasts 8 volumes. LEt's go.

EDIT: on second thought............. the art is actually TOO good for this story. Like, seriously. It's too damn good. Works perfect in junction for the drama, which presents itself soon enough.

Objectified women? How about all of the violence directed towards males? What about the stereotype of a brute, dumb male solving all his problem with fists? Lets look further - in most literature(any type of media, actualy) where someone dies or gets to suffer physical pain that someone is... yes males. When it's other way around and it's female suffering/die, somehow people get all bananas and turn into hypocrite saint Maria preaching about their moral superiority (especially if it's modern west we are talking about). Somehow I rarely see people complaining (not even noticing, at that) about that. Is this some sort of new mangina tactics to draw validation from women?
Men get their fair share of pain and problems and so does women. Putting one above other is stupid, something you expect from people who can't get their own lives together.

As for actual manga, I have mixed feeling and I will wait till it finishes before giving it a rating.

I have read a lot of manga for many years, and Sun-Ken Rock is so far one of the best I have read and still reading. Storyline, art, character development: this manga has everything and should be able to satisfy the needs of most manga readers.

Looks like it will be interesting. I'm grateful to the work scanlators put in to them. I just wish more manga of this genre would get licensed just because it would just be nice to have an actual copy.

This story was a lot better than I thought it would be. After reading it I found it to be quite humorous and well balanced on it's series tones. It has a nice pace of showing the characters pursuing what they started out to do. I like the characters most of all too, they were pretty well thought out, you know enough of them to see where the story will go, and you believe in their interactions and relationships with each other.
