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: A new edition under the title Air Gear Unlimited was released in 2014. Its format is bigger and contains some coloured pages.

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.

Hah 3 months since the last comment, you'd think a shonen that was so popular would be flooded but nope.

Anyway that isn't the point, the point is, Air gear has drastically fallen (as many have said) to the point of being pure crap. As many have stated, the beginning of the series was awesome, I mean sure there was some fantasy elements into the series (I was actually okay with Akito's beam kick thing and the fact that certain fighters could stop time or something similar, pretty much all the things that happened during behemoth I was okay with).

It wasn't until Sora started pulling out Jedi like powers and that everyone and their mothers had super powers that rivaled naruto or bleach that this series just descended to crap.

I mean why the fuck at the beginning of the series give us those different games (Dash, disc, cube ect.) for each team rising up only to at the end just make the manga into something unoriginal (OKAY GUYS WE ARE ON HIGH TECH ROLLERBLADES SO LETS JUST SHOOT LIGHTNING AT EACH OTHER AND PUNCH AND STUFF KAY?).

I mean seriously, at first this series was interesting, Original even, then we get treated to a battle manga with every other issue someone running past a group of girls and tearing their clothes off? Fuck that.

Air gear has now just become a pathetic piece of shit series that honestly isn't worth picking up. You will only get attached to it and then become disgusted later (If you haven't seen the series, Don't touch it)

The manga started out fairly well, like TJTG. However, the author stalls and loses focus ...and unfortunately, as good as the drawings are, his constant one-uppers of showing effects loses its showiness after you see some amazing super powered ability that someone pulled out of their backside for the 20th time in the same action sequence.

Sort of a update. This manga is trash, Its getting almost two years since I've made a comment about this, but its just terrible, aside from awesome artwork.

The story ultimately suffers due to unnecessary and hard to follow dialogue that ultimately isn't important to the whole aspect of the story. There are a ton of characters and character development time tends to be used on unimportant characters or leave some main characters completely out of the window.

All in all, 5 points from the excellence of the drawings. Definitely one of the best mangaka in terms of drawing abilities. And one point for trying to do some semblance of a story even if it becomes abstract, chaotic with no conceptual practice of time flow. Definitely one of the crowning princes that practices manga 'filler' chapters.

I'm not exactly sure what happened. I used to love this series. I read it a couple years ago and read all the way up to the current chapter (2 years ago) in one go. It was good. Then after a certain part in the story I just fell off the wagon. I'm not sure why, but I tried to get back into it and it didn't happen. I am currently watching the anime in hopes that I can get back into it. Hopefully Air Gear picks up a bit, so I don't fall asleep reading it.
