Take Isamu is the best at everything he does at school, from looks and smarts, to his luck with girls and his abilities as an athlete. He considers himself to be in the top percent of his age group and is incredibly bored with interacting with the so called "normal people". That is until a new student, Kaname Moka, transfers into his school and, as she is quite pretty, Isamu asks her out. Moka mishears what he says and thinks he wants to challenge her to a fight, as she grew up on boxing. Determined to win her heart, Isamu decides to become a great boxer, with the help of new friends and allies he and Moka meet along the way.

Nice boxing manga.   
Rating: N/A

The only boxing (and boxing-related) manga that I ever read are Katsu! and Rainbow, and both, with different plots and giving me different feelings, are good manga. Buyuden itself is very interesting, because at first I thought the main character would be older, but he is an elementary student!

In sports manga, the main character was usually weak and meet his rivals, which after that turns into his friends. However, although new characters keep appearing in this manga, it is not about their rivalry towards each other. Instead, it is all about the character growth about each individual, so it isn't necessary to keep repeating this "duel between eternal rival" stuff that often happens in manga.

Boxing, just like wrestling and other ring-sports, are usually not interesting at all, but I'm glad to have read this manga. Who knows that such dangerous sports we usually watch in TV can be this interesting? Actually the drama in this manga is not bad too, it relates to life between boxing and boxing in real life.

BUT, that is that. I'm still disappointed with the time skip and last chapters... Why the main heroine stays *** in the end!!

Then again, a manga where the characters experience character growth is the best!

This manga had really good potential. I personally think they started to make the main character too powerful. It also felt like the story was all over the place in terms of plot points. I honestly say that it was a great manga about boxing (subtle romance) up until the time skip. I would say read this but don't expect too much from the ending.

Crappy Ending

It was kinda fun until it ended, but that ending itself sure was crappy.
Actually, first time I read that last chapter, I didn't even realize that it was the end (It felt like an ending to an story arc at best) so I just kept waiting for the next chapter wor a couple of months...
If this website didn't say that it was in fact over already, I would just kept waiting.
Now I kinda feel like I just wasted my time...

I will say 5 words about this.

Read Hajime No Ippo Instead.

This entire series is somewhat of a rip off of HNI. I am not saying it sucks Per se, but all i can think of as i read this is how its like a sped up of version of HNI. of course there are plot differences, but a lot of the characters resemble the ones from HNI and even their moves are similar (I understand it is boxing, but after i saw the "Submarine hook" i was convinced.) People may disagree with my having said this, but i stand by my words of both series being good, but HNI being the better read (Unless you want a short story, since HNI is at 1k+ Chapters)

It was decent enough to keep me reading

Honestly though, the 'saving someone from delinquents and bullies' thing is getting annoying. There's a lot of that in this manga. The art is quite good from the start but gets kind of unclear and awkward during fight scenes. The story is kind of flat and doesn't have anything original. No major plot twists. It tries to be intense sometimes but it just stayed like a light read for me. I'll give the author one thing though-

i never thought he would have the guts to make the female lead fat. he surprised me with that one
I don't think the story would get better anytime soon but I've always been a fan of sports/martial arts manga so I'll just keep reading. It's a decent enough read while waiting for updates from other manga.

Buyuden - and so it begins another Epic Sports Journey

From the author of "Major" Comes another great series, he really knows how to capture that Heroic essence in his sports manga

the scenario is somewhat similar to his previous manga "Deceased Relative" "Motive for taking interest in that sport" "Romantic Subplot" "Lots and lots Of Character Dump"

overall it's enjoyable!

I liked it more in the beginning, now it has become boring. It's still ok, but it doesn't go further than that; the main problem is that I don't feel anything towards the characters, and the plot isn' that original. It's good to kill some time.

I was never a fan of boxing. I am still not one, but at least Buyuden makes me a little bit interested about boxing.
The main character isn't your usual wimpy wishy washy shounen loser, he started out annoying and gradually became hilarious and fun to relate to.
The heroine, well, I can say it has been a long time since I felt this very huge urge to hug a manga character. She's deadly adorable.
The other characters are also done nicely, their personalities are interesting in a way.
Well, as soon as you finish reading my post, go to your nearest book store and buy this manga.
Or download, of course.

Great Manga

To what the guy said below me: How can you judge the manga on just three ch's, come on dude use your head. Great story, just a really refreshing manga(not like most others that are coming out these days)

Looks like there might be a time skip coming soon. Also for the people who only read the beginning read more the main character starts out as a real D1ck but changes in time and becomes a real likable character.

After reading 3 chapters I was so annoyed that I stopped. Five older boys gang up to beat up a 12 year old girl and lose. Instead of reflecting on their action, they ask stronger guys to gang up with them to beat her up... That is just pitiful... if this is the reality in any country, god save us all

Update: In my opinion it is a bad idea to use 12 year olds as Protagonist in a martial art manga which does not involve magic or supernatural power. I am practicing martial art myself and cannot sympathize with antagonists who try to win against 12 year olds... it is just my opinion.
