a hilarious work

this manga is very funny. first, the art - it conveys the crazy situations perfectly, with the grotesque faces and flying snots. but when it draw scary faces they really look scary with heavy black lines showing intense emotions. if you want gore, this art cannot give you it because the bloods look like wriggly eels.

secondly, the characters. all the main players here are just plain crazy, from the invincible idiot mc, the luck pushing cop and the demon-looking school-teacher turned mercenary. but the best one imo is the caucasian ninja, when he enters the scene for the first time I'm in stitches.

third, the plot. it is very nonsensical but it flows smoothly I must say. from one outrageous event to the next, culminating in the wierdest ending I had ever read, it will make you laugh how such absurd things could be written.

all in all, a great funny read.

well my first damn post and im gonna dare to say why is that the average for this manga is in 7 and failing, this manga as mister gekkoh already said before is one of those that you like or not but if you like it too much because it was in fact a nonsense product of a bastard child between "Black and White" and "The World is Mine", when some one with actual plans bust in and ruins your madness feast using the general stupidity of the rest of the world as an advantage to its purposes, your opinion just change to 10 to that of 7 but you think "it was so good... im not being too harsh on him?" until you see that end and you decide it deserves the 7.

When I saw the mixed reviews I knew I was going to love this one, the main character is a freaking nut job and that's why he's so damn awesome, backgrounds are well done, the characters are kinda weird looking but in a good way. If "Black and White" and "The World is Mine" had a child, this would be it.

The main hero is maniac, dull, strong, big and very lucky. Art is bad. But this is advantage.Why estimation is9? Don't know. There is two opinion of this manga-you like it or not. Very strange.
