Hype up then dissopointed

This manga had more ups and down than an effing rollercoaster, it starts of interesting, seeminly typical weak guy pushed around, down on his luck, will eventually discover boxing and all that jazz you see. But then it does a 180 and its like im reading a pure slice of life manga.

It annoyed me a little that boxing didnt come in to till half way (especially when in the description is about him becoming a boxer) I honestly felt like the author kept getting all this differnt ideas that he would start working on, which would build up your interest get you excited for what happens next, only for the author to change his mind and leave you feeling dissopointed. It honestly feels like this manga has no idea what it wants to be. When it gets good it gets really good and fun to read but its always short lived

This is where the arguably interesting author started to show writing chops but the work is very uneven as the exceptionally pathetic cast becomes the opposite of believable over time. As if their only joy in life is to keep making each other miserable and the transition from the first to the second half feels forced. The series is undeniably a fetish piece on top and the last volume will decide if the read was worth it or not. His later I Am a Hero (8,5/10) is worth it though and so are a lot of the shorts in Tokkaten (7,5/10).

As a guy who was always timid, I totally identify with the MC, and so I follow the story with a combination of chagrin and uneasy hope on his behalf. It's really the ultimate "the worm turns" story, with the MC being the lowest-down creature you can imagine at the start. Given what he is at the beginning, I've never been troubled that he's taking so long to change. You would expect his rise to Manhood to take years. Plus all the two greatest good things I look for in manga are here: realistic behavior and talk such as actual humans might do and say, AND great, careful drawing.

Oh the humour... It's sad, it's painful, it's awkward... That is if you have some God damned issues, maaaan/wooo-maaaan!
Anyway, funny as hell story about a guy going through some serious stuff. Most of the 'stuff' could have been avoided if he had some damn balls, but I guess this story is about him growing a pair... But who am I to judge? biggrin

Best red while drinking condensed milk and crying while mumbling to yourself that you are fat.

This is so bad, you can't stop reading it. By bad, I don't mean that story is bad, but the things that main character goes through is so bad. It actually makes me outraged at some points. In some sense, I can't even say he went through them. Most of the time, he was a part of the cause for his troubles thanks to his loser personality. Just when you think he will finally start redeeming himself, he gets himself into a worse hole. I can't imagine how this is going to end, but I don't think it can end well. I will give it points for making it a compelling read though.

man oh man, i thought this is a sport martial art manga, until i need to go through 30+ deppressing chapters until the MC start boxing.
i'm an introvert but i can say this MC is suckass.

i'll still reccomend this to read though because : (from 87 chaps)
- top notch art
- gradually better on story
- good box reference
- know that you're not the most bad luck person in the earth LOL

still, about the main girl:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the girl is very logical, normally, any girl wants to has bf that's looks cool, rich, or/and strong.
the aftereffect is another story. i'll slap that bitch when knew she still love the aoyama after pregnant and dumped

This is my first comment even if i read manga for much time now. I wanna say something about that brunette woman protagonist
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
she is a curva , whore !!!

This manga express the worst situation you can get. Anyway is only my opinion
The main guy is a loser who he can't f .. express himself. He is a weirdo from my standards. Anyway i am only on the chapter 31 .. and maybe this manga will change.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
chapter 49 confirmed it ! she is a damn slut.... but this is the best chapter so far , and yes weird in manny ways but very cool moment

If you want a depressing story where it's quench your heart and then feels like destroying your room, try this. I almost broke my keyboard.

But it's good. It made you can hate the character like it's so real in your life. Ha.

I had this at 9, but just changed it to 10. Its getting more and more interesting. I like the balance between the moods in the story and cant wait to read more. The style is really original in my opinion.

but kengo is really good. i like i am a hero more than this, but it's like comparing something i like, like donuts, to something i like a lot, like bacon. they're both good, and if you think about it, sometimes one is better than the other.

but this guy lets himself get into so many shitty situations it's really gut wrenching. it's a good story though, and kengo's drawing style is pretty endearing somehow. i like the way he draws mouths all big.

he's really talented with contour, and there's a lot of detail in his artwork. definitely not a waste of time but really makes your feelings wrench, and makes you kinda let out a crooked laugh at how terrible this guy is. especially if you're a dude. i'd be lying if it didn't flash me back to when i pulled all the wrong moves when i was super socially retarded too.
