manga is great. fell in love with it when i first read it. anime was great as well. it's kinda

http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/content.php?contentid=57198 sums it up perfectly:
Comparisons to GTO are somewhat inevitable when talking about a show like Salaryman Kintaro. Not only did both make the transition from Manga to Jdrama and then finally Anime, but their main characters are also reformed motorcycle gang leaders who are trying to forge a more conventional life in a professional industry. However, whereas GTO is a very straight comedy-drama with a loveable but dim-witted protagonist, Salaryman Kintaro is a much more political affair that clearly has an agenda a mile wide. Its primary function appears to be to serve a life-affirming message for white-collar workers everywhere...

Kintaro is clearly a role-model for real-life white collar workers, but one that is nauseatingly characterized like some sort of superhero. The basic idea is that, because Kintaro is so honest and direct in his goals, he always achieves them.
