Tokyo Crazy Paradise

It's the year 2020 AD, and Tokyo II is a city infested with crime. Women can no longer go out in the streets alone without being victimized. Not wanting their daughter to suffer the same fate, Tsukasa Kozuki's cop parents raise her as a boy. When they are suddenly killed by one of the yakuza's in-fights, Tsukasa is left orphaned on the streets along with her three brothers.

With no other options, she goes to the only person she can think of for help: pokerface Ryuji Shirogami, her classmate of 8 years and also the head leader of the powerful yakuza group, Kuryugumi. Ryuji, whose father was also a victim of the same yakuza fight, agrees to take her on as his personal bodyguard. As they set out to find their enemy, Ryuji slaps an increasing amount of debt onto Tsukasa, using all manner of ploys to keep the reluctant Tsukasa by his side.

I really like this series. Like most other series it has got parts where I think: "Ugh, not worth reading.", but wholesome it's really good if you like action, romance,strong heroine kind of stories. Uhm... and the yakuza is kind of ridiculed in there a bit, but not as bad as some other manga I know.

The art is bad but the story is mostly very enjoyable.

@kittenz73 In later volumes it turns out she is the "goddess of battle" or something like that and ít's in her blood to be this strong. Guess they forgot the genre "Supernatural" or "Fantasy". It has got a bit of both (supernatural powers).

Well that happens if you don't complete. People who dislike near-perfect heroes/heroines shouldn't read that.

Tsukasa and Ryuji are my favourites! I love the characters, they're adorable and hilarious but the yakuza plot lines failed to keep me reading further. I'm talking about the school drug mystery, the underground gambling thing, etc. I'm only on the 13th chapter and with 40+ to go I'm kind of bored. It's clearly not something I can finish within a day or so. But it's better than Skip Beat imo.

I started reading this manga with pretty high hopes which grew as I read but then when I ended I fell off my stairway to heaven like a bucket of sand and suffered withdrawal symptoms. Suffice to say I simply loved this manga with its intricate plot, the detailed action fighting scenes, the delicately balanced humour and the touching romance. Yoshiki Nakamura truly is talented when she clenches your heart with her drawing and writing style, the heartfelt moments make your heart bleed eternity... maybe not but still. I really, really, really, wish it could've ended better or even have had a sequel because the characters, plot, art and setting are just to DIE for... not literally.
It is quite unfortunate that it hasn't been recognised for the wonderful piece of art it is, seeing as it has neither been translated into English nor turned into an anime. Tsukasa, Ryuji... may we meet again.

Oh, and in response to all the reviews about the fact they were only 14... I kept forgetting. bigrazz

The utter ridiculousness of the fact that the main characters are only 14 when they look and act much much older aside, this was a very good manga. The heroine, Kozuki Tsukasa is a strong girl with a very genki personality, basically just like Kyouko from Skip Beat only with fighting skills instead of acting skills. I must admit, it took me awhile to really get into this manga but by the end of it I didn't want it to finish. The plot becomes much more interesting as it goes along and the deepening relationship between Tsukasa and Ryuuji was one of the highlights of the manga.

An amazing manga which combines comedy(it's really HILARIOUS),action and a wonderful romance.Great story,great characters;i really can't find any flaw.As expected from the talented Nakamura Yoshiki-sensei.By the way,for those who say that Tsukasa is just like Kyoko from Skip Beat! with fighting skills,i have to say that this is not true at all.They are both powerful and strong character-wise but their personalities are entirely different.They both bring laughter and are not your typical annoying/Mary Sue/weak shoujo heroine but Tsukasa is really really different from Kyoko.Anyway,highly recommended.It's a shame it didn't get animated although it was popular in Japan.Read it people^^
As said Ariakit :License the damn thing already!

I read this because I am a HUGE fan of Skip Beat and wanted more Nakamura. I love her characters and her artwork. Especially her artwork. There was not a single character I disliked, even among the baddies. I also have a thing for seriously intense heroines and the scenes where Tsukasa is all in crazy-fighter-Wakasa mode struck me as absolutely amazing. One of the great things about Nakamura, for me, is that her stories make me want to be a certain character. Most other manga makes me want to be the one involved with certain characters. Heh.

I agree I would have like Tsukasa to become a little girlier by the end. But the series ended quite well and I really enjoyed it.

I can't believe it's over! O.O I was so surprised... Anyway, I wholly and completely LOVED this manga! There's action, romance, drama and SO MUCH emotion! Every character is unique and so REAL you can't help but feel like there's really somebody like them out there somewhere. I love this manga, it's really one of my very few favorites!!
About the whole Yakuza concept, I liked how Nakamura Yoshiki prortrayed them. They're Yakuza and merciless to their enemies...but not to everyday people 'Katagi' and DON'T do drugs. I especially liked that scene with the Yakuza and Police trying to do a trade-off and both their followers didn't trust the others sub-ordinates. They're not those goody goody Yakuza types you usally find but they're not the spawn-of-satan types either. They're nicely in-between.
And loved Ryuji. Especially Ryuji. And Tsukasa. WHO didn't love Tsukasaconfused! I even liked Asago near the end cuz even though I was screaming 'DIE! YOU *****' at the comp screen through most of the series, at the end, I think she developed into a bearable person because of a certian cop. ^_^ And of course Kamojima ;_; OH KAMOJIMA!!
And, about the ending, I personally loved it. Who needs an ending kiss and a wedding scene? That's so...shoujo wink I finished this story being completely and utterly content that those two would stay together for life.
It's just 'Tsukasa and Ryuji' and I don't need anymore than that.
Totally Recommended.
