Banchou Love

I fricken LOVE this series. It's so wicked, the art is powerful and the techniques are crazy. Later they even present banchou who are made by readers (just like choujin in Kinnikuman). In fact, KB reminds me lot of Kinnikuman and Hokuto no Ken, which is always a good thing. Nice, Suzuki-sensei!

There isn't exactly a focus on being realistic, but that doesn't detract from the manga at all.
The main character is both hilarious and awesome at the same time. The fights are simple, not too drawn out and make you feel pumped up. The enemies are kind of strange, but creative. The manga is not too innovative otherwise, but all in all if you like shounen action, you can't really go wrong here.

Banchou manga!

Impressive young man arrives, girl meets boy, boy meets younger sister, and so the first chapter develops. Surely the main character features seem to be exagerated, but can't say they don't fit in the author's scheme. So far it's a nice manga, I like Suzuki sensei's works, and I hope I could keep on reading more of this manga.

Excellent fighting manga.

This is an excellent fighting manga. The main character, Kongou is a big guy with herculean strength. But even more, he is very kind to others, even his enemies and he can make them understand the error of their ways.
In the world of banchou, we can see ENORMOUS people. Many enemies are ridiculously big and tall, some even have a giant size. There is no magic, but there are many special abilities and they usually are exagerated stuff from legends and science.

The fights are not sophisticated like in Naruto but they are prideful and the outcome is never determined by small tricks.

Don't sweat the small stuff!

Almost... You should approach this the same way you approach American superhero comics, by expecting ridiculous fights and incredible powers.

Shounen action done right

It has all if the good cliches with none of the bad ones, and unlike those manga that make you sick of hearing about the power of friendship, this makes me look forward to how teamwork and comraderie will win the day. Great diverse set of main characters that interact well with each other and a really cool cast of villains than seem to have unpredictable plans makes this manga one of my favorites.

Quite different from the summary, but it has tons of great actions and humors to boost so far.

First time I have read a manga created by Suzuki-san, and I'm glad to have finally read it after hearing about.

Great shounen manga

Just exactly like the person below be said, this manga is what shounen mangas should be like. There are no bs chapters and it is straight forward. It may be cliche but just like zimzimbadabim said, "It has all of the good cliches with none of the bad ones". The manga is like bleach but with none of these outrageous power ups or wasted chapters with full of dialogue. The ending was good because there is no open ending bs.

The only negative thing is that this manga is nothing new but I still recommend you to read this. I give this a 8.5/10 because its another cliche shounen manga but don't forget that it is executed perfectly.

This is great!, I love Suzuki Nakaba...and if you liked Ultra Red, you'll love this one.
Art is pretty much the same as he always does, and another fighting manga. I was hoping for him to do another one like this, and it's incredible...

Epitome of shounen manga

I think my title says it all.
No draggy fights, no long useless speeches, no annoying protagonist.
I even like the dash of romance in it.
One word: Epic
