From Endless Youth and Co.:

Shunpei Closer's grandfather, Alsyd Closer, was an odd man. He traveled around the world always coming back to Japan to tell his grandson all the amazing adventures he would have. Before leaving to Africa on Shunpei's 7th birthday, he gives him a teddy bear named Hyde. Six years have passed and one day Shunpei receives a mysterious package that contains a deadly surprise. To survive, he will learn more about his grandfather than he ever dared to dream and learn what it takes to be a real man, and not the coward he always thought it was all right to be.

Oddly good

i recommend this likewise.This has somehow differend taste than any other serie. Drawing sure is less accurate than in reborn, but if it were more accurate, it would somehow make it look worse. Story is good in its own way, though it feels like it has only scratched the surface of a potentially long one.

same idea as in hitman reborn a coward + a deadly cuddly thing trying to make the coward into a real man.. so far boring! but It looks very promising smile
the cursed objects are badass, the art is cool, the main char. is less wimpy and the teddy bear is much more fun the reborn in "hitman reborn" smile

This manga COMPLETELY reminded me of Hitman Reborn. the little doll was basically reborn while Crowther is tsuna. But still I'm going to keep reading but might quit if it continues like a copy of it. pretty unoriginal and i guess its going to continue as Crowther becoming more serious and eventually becoming some awesome character.

Similar to Reborn, but...

I agree that this series definitely reminds you of Katekyo Hitman Reborn, but I think Hyde and Closer has a far better pace than KHR: In the very first volume you can already see that Closer is changing, something that adds to the plot of the story, and the author introduces arcs, something that in KHR took REALLY long.
The art is good, but there are not too many characters yet.
This manga does look promising, but only time will tell...

When I first read Hyde & Closer, I wasn't sure what to make of it. But I felt that I need to give this manga a chance, and after reading a few chapters, I'm glad that I have read it.

To be honest, it did have some cliches, but with each chapter, it seems to show up more or less, which is a good thing, as I really like the development and pace of the story and characters so far.

Overall, this is enjoyable to read once in a while.

Great series, in an over the top kinda way. Really like the first few volumes, but the end seems rushed. I liked the last few pages, but the last 10 chapters or so..... kinda sucked.

Overall I would say read it if you're bored and looking to be entertained, as for story there isn't much passed chapter 30. Theres a total of 60 chapters.
