Description
Itsuki Minami needs no introduction – everybody’s heard of the “Babyface” of the Eastside. He’s the toughest kid at Higashi Junior High School, easy on the eyes but dangerously tough when he needs to be. Plus, Itsuki lives with the mysterious and sexy Noyamano sisters. Life is never dull, but it becomes dangerous when Itsuki leads his school to victory over some vindictive Westside punks with gangster connections. Now he stands to lose his school, his friends, and everything he cares about. But in his darkest hour, the Noyamano girls come to Itsuki’s aid. They can teach him a powerful skill that will save their school from the gangsters’ siege and introduce Itsuki to a thrilling and terrifying new world.

Note: Won the 2006 Kodansha Manga Award in the shōnen category. A new edition named Air Gear Unlimited was released in 2014. The format is bigger and it contains some coloured pages.

This series is awesome, the best science fiction i have ever read. (At least much better than the crap like dragon ball z & gt). Really great logic. Mostly authors just grow stuff up. The techniques which are mentioned here are based on natural phenomenons.
You need a lot of IQ and physics and chemistry knowledge to understand this. If you do not understand what the author is trying to say then this manga is not meant for you.

PS: Do not read if you do not have good knowledge of physics and chemistry. It will become more confusing on later stages.

I started off watching the anime first, which was amazing. And I admit, when I started the manga, I got lost and confused - but I still read it hoping maybe it'll fan out. It did.

In the beginning, the author is building on the characters, the techniques, and the bonds between everyone. After much battling as many shounen manga have, eventually there is an ultimatum - one event that flips everything and everyone into mad work out routines and etc. Here is where people get thrown off. Because the author babbles on about physics and the law of whatever and the past, many people, including myself, get lost. But if you just go with it, you'll realize that it's not all that chaotic. To be frank, the author is probably just rambling about it to fill up the speech bubbles, but the art itself is great.

Another thing that throws a lot of people off is the sudden Obama character and politics. Well, in every shounen, there's a bad guy trying to rule the world and then suddenly you meet new characters that band together with the protagonist to take him down. Obama is just another character aiding the take down. The fact that he's the President shows how bad the villain is and how important ATs have become. There isn't any actual politics.

Air Gear definitely isn't a manga that you would expect is easy to follow because there is just so much information on each character. Each individual has a background story that goes deeper than most other shounens. It's clear that the author consistently builds on it which makes the story compelling. However, most people will see this as a scattered storyline bouncing back and forth between the past and present.

So why did I give it an 8.5? Precisely because I am one of the readers that did get lost reading this. I do admit that the author could have organized it more fluently, but hey, I still ended up understanding it. Maybe that was his/her intentions all along, but it's a turn off if the readers don't get it.

Either way, I believe everyone who reads Air Gear or will read Air Gear should brace themselves for a rocky story. Just be assured that there is a clear plot amidst the rocky-ness.

I loved it at first but now it's just confusing as hell. Not saying it's bad or anything but you will have to think really hard when reading any of the newer chapters.

It's good. Hands down. Don't want to get into detail. But Oh Great! is a manga God. The manga has great art, story-line, character development, drama,comedy (but it has been slacking I do admit) and action.

Really, this manga isn't as bad as you guys make it out to be. I will agree that the girls somehow always ending up naked is getting old and that getting obama involved was just silly, but the story, while complicated, if you can follow it, is actually very good and original.

I watched the anime a long time ago, and tried to pick up from where it left off but failed at following the story so i gave up. Picked the manga up from scratch about two weeks ago, read everything up to the latest chapter in notime.

It's like RaeBabeeyx3 said, its different if you have the option of reading chapter after chapter and piecing the story together.

yes, this totally messes up your mind, but i think its picked up again and everything is starting to unfold. actually, its better than all the shounen crap out there. i think people dont like it coz they had to wait for weeks for every chapter which makes the connection between each chapter disappear, whereas I, didn't wait. I started from where the anime left off till the latest chapter now. I must say, it's pretty good when you've already got the next chapter in your hands.

EDIT: DO NOT READ THIS MANGA IT WILL FUCK UP YOUR BRAIN AND MAKE SURE THAT EVERYTHING IS JUST PURE FUCKERY UNTIL YOU ULTIMATELY LOSE TRACK OF WHAT IS GOING ON lol I think it exceeded logic...... Anyways it was a shitty ending but thank god it ended already

This manga started out pretty nicely, and all the characters look good. HOWEVER, it went downhill as it continues. And now, it can be considered rubbish. Seriously, what's about introducing Obama into the series?! It totally loses it's original focus. Eww.

This series starts out ok, BUT it will mess with your mind later on, there are a hundred mysteries built on one another that never get an explanation you can understand, and all the powers they use never get an explanations that makes sense its just Oh greats own world of physics, it doesnt matter how you explain it, using your hands for weird attacktechniques when its supposed to come from the skates does not make sense. And I still dont understand all the cretures that appear behind the characters, and why is there politics in a sports and fight manga?!?!? 90% of the time im on the mangas wiki trying to understand something that is going on.
