Kyoshiro is boring. When you meet Kyo is when things start to get really good. Read up to the second encounter before you judge this series.

hmm, how should i explain this... this manga is very good in earlier chapter, but become boring in lat chapter. too many repeated action and the storyline are quite monotome. however, i still read it to the end smile. at least the ending are fine, you must read it.
it catchy in first and you want to read it to the end, but you'll also not very satisfied with it.

The very first shonen that I completely read and love.
The main character is a badass anti hero at first but as the story progresses he develops appreciation for friendship and love.

Although there are some long fights that took 3O chapters or more of this manga but I don't see anything wrong with it since it's a shonen manga.
Anyway I gave this manga 10 because I love Kyo and Yuya's subtle romance and the side characters that made this manga worth the read.

first few volume is not very captivating.... just so-so....
but quite good to follow, then when it reach 11 and up volume, become more and more interesting,
and I cant stop read it! especially when it reach 20 volume and up....
one good point is, the ending is good! I love the last chapter! a story without word... but full of meaning.
Good Job Kamijyo Akiine-san!! >.<!!

the story and drawing are really good ! the mangaka improved through the volumes !! yep yep ^^ and yeah near the end it becomes a bit repetitiv : different characters with different past but the same ingredient/atmosphere... it is not that bad though and i even found it touching ^^ I love the relationship between Yuya and Kyo! ahaha they make an hilarous couple ! smile
