to be honest, this manga has far too many fanservice scenes. the fight scenes are decent, the story was nice at first but at some point it turned out as a harem kind of manga in which all girls are in heat and all of them want to have sex with the main character. and the h scenes are so realistic, it's bothering me. don't have too much expectations while reading this.

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.

Epicness itself   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

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.

Have to agree with some if the reviewers here.
The story is nonexistant and bland. The women are objectified to no end and the first 2 volumes look kinda weard. The art from then on is top notch but like i said no context.
At least it is better then Tenjou Tenge.(The Horror, The Horror!).

So after 110 chapters, bad spin-offs and no end in sight i am out.

Mediocre

Read this up to ch. 80, and I have to say that this manga is mediocre at best. It tries to straddle the genres of comedy, drama, and action-adventure, but does none of those particularly well (e.g. transitions between comedic and dramatic story arcs come abruptly, disrupting the flow of the story). The story is also quite aimless in its direction, with the mangaka seemingly making Ken do random, irrelevant things just because that's what he thinks the readers will enjoy. If you're just looking to kill time some random Saturday afternoon, this manga might fit the bill, but why pick this series up when there are so many better series out there such as Gintama, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Rurouni Kenshin?

The manga was funny and different. The plot is different and it kept me wanting more. I really hate rape but I eventually got used to it. It is not as bad as other manga's I have read so it was not a real shock to me. The comedy was really hilarious but gradually it started going downhill

I love shounen plots like this but like most of them it goes downhill for me. I love the plot at the beginning and I even followed the scanlation groups Random Scanlations and XScansX releases but now it not as enjoyable now. Reviewing this manga I had to think outside the box and not be bias. I would have rate this manga a 9 but thinking it over and reading reviews, it can only get a 8/10 at most. The plot is really stupid now when I think it's over because it is unbelievable that someone could be a boss in a gang in a couple of days.

Overall it is a good manga but some people will not like it. I think it would have been different if the weren't as much chapters because now that there are 90+ chapters people will not like to read a manga that has that much chapters when it gets boring at the beginning.

i can't stand rape   
Rating: 1.0 / 10.0

i get emotionally entangled when i read something and for that reason i just can't stand rape and prostitution/forced prostitution in fiction. i understand it's all an undeniable fact of life that happens every day in the real world, but one of the main reasons i read manga is to escape from that reality and forget about horrible things like unconsensual sex. i'm just a normal guy, not a major feminist or anything fyi. i'm all for "good guys" going through adversity, but i'd just rather that adversity not include a bunch of unconsensual sex.

i'm not saying such things should be outlawed or anything (i am a strict proponent of freedom of speech) i'm just saying rape is not something i'll ever wanna read about in a fictional sense (fiction means you're not bound by anything other than your imagination, so just because rape is an undeniable occurrence in our world doesn't mean it ever has to be in a fictional world as well). leave something like that to documentaries, etc.

i say all this but in the end there is always an exception to the rule so take it however you want. i simply have not come across that exception yet in any of the manga i've read so far, including sun-ken rock.

Bad plot

EVERY single girls appeared in this manga are sluts. Except for that yumin.

It's incredibly unrealistic and unfit for such a theme (mafia, barefist winning against guns? srsly?) And the fact that a man became the boss of korean mafia after.... 2 battles? I mean if that's what it takes then everybody could do it, right?

The art is good, but plot and everything else just sucks.

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~
