I've read a tons of shoujo mangas and romances, from popular to unpopular, from mangas to Chinese novels. (... kinda embarrassing, but I still wanna say 😀)

And what I can say is, 'Tokyo Crazy Paradise' is special.

First, Tsukasa is strongest heroine I've ever seen, literally. She is so strong that I, at some points, find it ridiculous when she is always the person to rescue the main male lead (Ryuju). Tsukasa always fight by her self (most of the time). She doesn't need a man to save her. That's cool. (Not until chap 95 or so Ryu has a chance to protect her). Yes, she proved her self, to the gang, to the entire world.

Compares to the other normal romances, the heroines are usually protected and rescued by their men, which are so clinche and makes me feel 'argh..' and disgustingly irritated.

Second, ok, 'Tokyo Crazy Paradise' gives me a feeling of reading a Shounen. Yep, it has those action and Yakuza plot (which I skipped sometime due to my heavy romance need), it actually gives us the nerves, the tension, the stress feelings as we read, especially those thorny, dramatic parts.

But it also knows how to make us relieve at the same time, with those 'HAHAha' comedy. (Look at the chibi annoying Ryuji and you'll can't help but laughing)

This is a plus.

Third, the most important (well, for me), it has crazily heavy jealousyyy (Yay!!). Ok, so Ryuji is the craziest jelly monster I've ever known. Haha, he gets jealous so easily, even with those strangers.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Ah, I just write this in order to read those parts again someday.
Jealousy corners for pervs like me

Let's see, he got jealous when
- a male teacher talked so closely to Tsukasa (haha, he's just a little little side character, yet he still gets jelly) (even asked 'why were you so close w the teacher?)
- she cares so much about the Abasa or whatever kun
- over a policeman, ah yep, Akira-san.
I really 'haizzz'ed when Akira is the only man who truly loves her but does not receive enough attention...
and hey, when Ryuju is 'hand in hand' with Asago (maybe in chap 15 to 40), Tsukasa and this policeman get on so well together, yet Ryuju will never know about this (imagine if someone tells him about this). Tsukasa like, has held his hand, kissed him on the cheek, said 'I'll always be by your side' and even let him meet her family (to tutor her). Akira even thinks that he will meet her family approaching to a marriage :>...
Come to think that it's not Ryuju but Akira to be the first man she kissed makes me feel sastified (look what you have done, Ryuju, hugs and kissed and intimated with another woman in front of her). Hmph, he deserves it (say it both for Ryu and Aki)
-over the sexy long black man.
Haha, he even hugged and ripped off her clothes and left hickeys on her body and Ryuju will never see it. (Common, you had left her you badstard Ryu)

Okay, I can feel the 'ehehe' perv excitation in me whenever i see those jealousy .. wish i could describe it to you guys.


The only problem is,

their AGEs! Ha, 14😕😕? What shit is this...? But it's manga so I guess we shouldn't really care about the age problem, LOOK is everything.

And I don't really mind the art style. Their clothes may look a bit old-fashioned. But it's better and better than millions of other latest mangas and manhuas and manhwas and romances out there.

The plot (and the jelly) have covered everything.

All I can say is, it's not exaggerating to say, this is a masterpiece.

PS: Compares this to Skip Beat and Please Save My Earth, in the category of 'old' and 'longs' series, I right now prefer this. This is my bias.

I think, moreover, the author has put her heart and soul in to this work. It just doesn't feel like those cheap stories out there. It is the product of hard work and grey matter. It is worth to be praised and appreciated! This is what true manga, true art is.

What to say more, the sensitive scences are just suitably enough.

The side characters like Asago and Kamo-san also have their own touching satisfying stories.

Tokyo Crazy Paradise is my favorite manga. Tsukasa is a strong heroine that values family and friends, has a strong moral code, and a great sense of humor. Her story is action-packed and hilarious, and truly one-of-a-kind. Would highly recommend.

This manga is amazing to say the least. Iv'e lost count on how many times I have read this series. Tsukasa is not your average shoujo lead, she is strong, reliable and happens to be one of my favorite heroines that I've come across. Definitely a must read. Only setback to this series is that the art is not great, but I hope you can get past that because the plot and characters are worth it.

After the years I've been hearing praise for this classic, I finally read it and... while a fun read and good for a massive marathon sitting, it wasn't quite as amazing as I'd expected it to be. The plot is all over the place and it's hard to keep track of what's happening - characters fall by the wayside to be forgotten until 50 chapters later when the mangaka suddenly remembers they existed and chapter arcs end without proper resolution. More often than not, it doesn't even end; the manga just moves on to another plot line and you figure out that the arc must've ended. And while Ryuji and Tsukasa's romance started off with great promise and really heated up for a while, the Ayago obstacle dragged for far too long and the original promise is never fulfilled - rather, the romance just settles down and all the sparks fizzle. I still enjoyed the story, but I was left with a distinct sense that I wasn't satisfied.

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.

Disappointing

Rating: 5.0 / 10.0
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)

Not for me, too comical

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.
