Tokyo Crazy Paradise  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
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 absolutely adore this manga. For one it's interesting to see the style change from the authors older works to the art in the beginning of skip beat. taking place somewhere in the future the author didn't do that bad because it's their take on future possibilities in a dystopian society,further more because this is an old work it's always kind of funny to see how different life is currently that how it is depicted.

The characters do get some character change Ryugi's was how he became less stoic he was still mostly stoic but he showed more emotion through the chapters. Tsukasa's was how she matured.
What I mostly liked about this is how the female lead was an equal to the male lead and not a sobbing hypocrite or fakely strong(in which the book tells me she's strong but the male lead still over takes her in power making it seem like she's weak and I was lied to). When she did fight there was times she save ryugi and times he saved her. In regards to this ryugi was nothing to scuff at either. He was cool and no weaker than the female lead which made it interesting.

My dislike of this series is the age. It says they are 14 they look 18. However this fact is easily looked over until they bring it up again. Also the translations because the translators did not traslate a couple of pages within the last few chapters which strongly bothers me.

All in all this is my absolute favorite. It has a high chance to be reread and loved.

Was expecting a lot of this one after all the praise I've see, that it's the best shoujo manga, that it's better than skip beat, etc. but I'm completely disappointed, in the first place the action sequence is terrible, it's hardly fluid and hard to understand, it jumps from a scene to the next very inconsistently and at times you don't know what he heck it's talking about or where something came from. Second many thing are just stupid or ridiculous and thus tiering, even more so since they happen over and over, like all the debt bullsh*t on the first volumes or Tsukasa stopping bullets with a chain among others, seams sci-fi. She's 14 years old and beats the crap out of professional yakuza as if it was a joke (and for me at least it is). And third, I can't get myself to like the art style at all.

There are simply too many inconsistencies,
- what's the point in living a a man when she keeps cross-dressing to get attacked?
- chars don't feel real at all. The supposed cold mafia leader is mister good guy, a good chunk of the plot would disappear if he'd actually act as what he is, it's like a bad american comic were the bad guy get's sent to prison just to get out the next chapter, just how many time do they have to fight Hizaki and pardon them? And Tsukasas motivations to remain yakuza are hard to grasp at leas on the first 10 or so volumes.
- The main chars are supposed to be 14 and act as if they were much older, their age is just not believable, they even try to make a pedophile in love look as something romantic (and yeah I know it differs on some countries, still someone over 20 (24) with someone of 14 is pedophilia in my eyes)
- The world doesn't feel "crazy" or dangerous as intended and people purposely ignore a woman being raped on the street but report some people in an abandoned place...
- It's funny too how in a world were supposedly no one cares but for themselves every single char in the cast tries to mingle into Tsukasas private life and her feelings.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Tsukasa being friendly with Asago who shoots her brothers and threatens to kill them is ridiculous, and she even helps her. Also I find it hard to believe that Tsukasa is more worried about not being a bodyguard anymore than her brothers lives, at this point she's not even aware she's in love

In short, the world portrayed and chars are inconsistent and things simply don't making holes everywhere as I said before. The good part in this one is the setting, the mafia boss son and the police couple daughter, etc. but it kinda ended there for me, even the comedy felt so-so, laughed about once per volume.

All in all I had a very hard time getting past the first couple of volumes and at the moment havind dropped at vol. 11 I find it doubtful I'll ever finish this one.

Wow this ended being a pure complain post, I guess I ended taking my frustration here for all the flowers people threw at this manga in their reviews. Might cool down and revise it if I ever finish this.

Last, it's a pity there is no proper translation of this, the only group available for the first 7 volumes did a job on par with an HK translation or maybe it even is one, the group didn't even bother to do QC on it. Then there is AYR for some volumes which does a much better job on the translation part but the scanlation quality is quite poor (the alternative being an unnamed group with bad quality and bad translation)

I put off reading this for a long time because the art deterred me and I thought I had tried to read it before and disliked it - turns out I never did. My expectations were flopped. Art isn't unbearable but I'm finding myself growing bored and tired of the actual plot - which is bad news.

The story's backdrop is ridiculous and all over the place. It's largely about yakuza, gangs and syndicates doing something sneaky back and forth to each other. The drama is kind of genericy kidnappings, close calls (someone always comes to the rescue when the victim's in trouble) and cartoony/exaggerated fight scenes. Guns and weapons are always involved but no one ever gets away with more than scratches.

The "hey he/she isn't so bad after all" or "wow that was really cute of her" get's kind of tiring after a while for me as well. It just lacks substance to me and I've seen this kind of stuff way too much before! Like I said, this one is just not for me.

I dropped it after a few volumes, so it could get better - who knows. I didn't find it a very mature or serious read. I'd prefer something that feels a little more relevant to an average person or youth or at least takes situational plots more seriously.

I put this manga on my wish list (wish to never encounter again) for 2 years because I thought the art was too old n it took place in the future (future = weird machine = ewww). But I was completely wrong! The art, though old, is amazing ( characters look way too young or old for their age though esp. the main couples, who are 14 but look like freaking 19-24..) and there arent any weird machine (until the last part but it not transformer crazy). The plot is amazingly written and the characters are not typical shoujo characters (except maybe for the rival girl but she is wayy too badass to hate). It's hilarious (I actually woke my parents up while reading this manga xD). I only wish that it was longer.. it suck that shoujo manga rarely get more than 20 volumes and many of them dont have action like this (and I dont do well with shounen so im action starving..)..
Must read!!!!

TCP has a unique story idea but is not a favourite of mine. The male didn't really have any character development - which was disappointing. Other than that, the story was fairly enjoyable, though it was dragged out in some parts, until it got exciting again in the second half to build up to the climax. I was okay with the art, but for those who mind proper body proportioning, beware. Their limbs can become outrageously long at times. Tsukasa and Ryugi, the main leads, also did NOT look like actual 14-year olds - more like 18. Other than that, the story was decent enough.

I love this manga!!! <3<3!!! I cannot believe I ever put this one on the back-burner.

There are some comedy manga that I can quietly snicker to, but this one? NO POSSIBLE WAY!!
I love this author's other work Skip Beat too (I actually read SB first) and yeah the art is similar (duh!!) but It's different in a way (it seems more angular and more shaded) and I love that!!!!
There is obvious tension, both relationship-type tension and violence-type tension (seeing as it's a yakuza manga) but it's more of a battle-comedy with love intermixed than a love-comedy with battles (however that would work) and it's refreshing.
The author never delves too far into the romance aspect but I didn't feel that is was lacking because of that. The comedic antics of the two main characters totally captured my heart and the range of emotion from each of the more prominent characters was very realistic (rather than the simplistic emotions displayed in most shoujo or avoided in some battle manga). It was all balanced quite nicely.

I didn't give it a full 10 because I rate on how many times I could read and reread something in a row (and seeing how I don't reread, or even rate, something that I don't think is done well in the first place...) and I know that the shoujo-esque would get on my nerves after the 3rd or 4th time lol.
BUT... I could laugh at Tsukasa's comedic relief every time.
I also felt a little lost sometimes (but that may have been due to translation issues) and there was a lot of details that just got skipped over or were deemed unimportant and excluded that I would have liked to know/hear about and that contributed to the slightly lower score as well. Though, it didn't take away from the manga very much to have those details excluded I just felt that I was left out (lol... though it's not like everyone else wasn't left out either but that's just how it made me feel).
Plus, this is one that I couldn't just start anywhere and just plain enjoy it (aside from the comedy) and unintentionally keep reading from where I started. The plot and the happenings are all intertwined, so I would need to read from beginning to end every time. That is both an asset and a drawback (but it's like six in one and a half dozen in the other to me; depends on what I'm feeling that day lol). I do like that there is nothing really unimportant that was written. Yes there is some flashback filler but it was often necessary; especially for those of us with a terrible memory or intermittent reading.

This is one of those that I could read and reread and love it no less than the first time I finished it! I seriously can't believe I waited so long to read it!!

i don't remember enough of it to write a full review, but after two years, I can say that I remember smiling with satisfaction upon finishing the series.

It had a slow and aggravating start for me, but it somehow manage to pull through in my eyes as a masterpiece.

This is one of my all time favorite manga. After reading it for the third time it still has not lost its charm. It's rare to find such strong characters (both figuratively and literally) and plot in shoujo manga. I would have given TCP a 10/10 for its plot, action, comedy, characters, and subtle (perhaps slow would be more accurate) romance. However, since having an artist friend who is super-picky about proportions and such, I'm afraid I have to give it an 9/10 for some of the ridiculously small heads, super long legs, etc. I suppose that they're 14 is also a difficult point but manga logic, right?
I must also say, although Tsukasa was my favorite character, I believe now my favorite is Munakata despite his brief appearance.

The art is something of an acquired taste(it improves quite quickly after the first few chapters, but some may still not find it to their taste). The first few chapters in general are somewhat amateur-ish in many ways, but it really picks up quickly and is just an outstanding manga full of amazing plot and character development, and a lot of humor. It's fun, fairly mature, but playful. It's surprisingly dark at times, but it definitely won't make you feel down for long. If you have triggers involving drugs or rape, I'd advise against this as a read though.
It's a good story, with some sci-fi elements to it and the usual manga-style disregard for things like the laws of physics. I've reread it quite a few times, and it never stops being fun.
