Description
Kinnikuman (Muscleman), a weak and clumsy super hero, constantly getting into wacky situations. As the series progressed, the story began changing from comedy to action as Kinnikuman battles stronger and stronger foes in the wrestling ring. The series continually introduced new Super Human characters, known as Chyo-jins, who would challenge Kinnikuman and his friends for various purposes.

Note: Received the Shogakukan Manga Award for shōnen manga in 1985.

The original run was from 1979-1986 and ended with Vol. 36. The series directly continued in 2010.

A Wonderful Manga

Now, I may be biased considering I work a lot with gag manga to begin with, but, kinnikuman has been one of the most exciting and endearing manga I've ever read. I'm not normally even into action manga too much, but the way kinnikuman handles it's characters and story is like no other, and laid the ground work for decades to come.

Yet another brilliant classic I failed to read until now. It started off hilarious and developed into an exciting action story, while still being hilarious. Reading it with no idea what I was getting into I am more than happy. It was a good story and I read the 20-odd volumes out so far taking up nearly all my free time for the last few days.

Yes, a shame indeed. The beginning is very silly, stupid even, but it becomes one of the greatest, if not THE Greatest action-shounen ever. Give it another try. I used to dislike Kinnikuman a lot but nowadays I am totally hooked. Brilliant masterpiece.
