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.

I mean, wow. The main character starts out so lame that every masculine bone in my body is screaming for him to win. It goes to the very root of what what makes a man want to be something more than what they are. I mean, for someone who has a great life there's not much there, but even though most of us have ever sunk as low as our hero, most of us have been punked down pretty hard at some point in our lives. Some more than others. And this is quite possibly as much of an underdog as you can get. All I can do is keep reading and hope that the hero can rise from his state of pure mediocrity, find his pride (which he has already begun to do), and kick some ass.

I gotta say, this picture of a losers life is crushing me inside.

Can't say Im too sympathetic with the main character, but geez, what the crap. Im hoping this goes the 'nerdy guy buffs up' route, because this is seriously depressing... the guy doesn't even have a single friend!

I do have to say its keeping me coming back to see what happens next though.

Okay, mixed feelings about this. Description: "about how and why a guy goes from a worker at a dead-end job to becoming a boxer". So far, he hasn't even started boxing yet. The story up 'till now in is one of the most depressing manga plots I ever read. Not to say that it's well drawn and well written, it's still severely depressing. Probably things will start to work out soon, but if you start reading this now up to the latest translated chapters, be prepared to be wrecked. Not for the fainthearted out there (March 2012).

There is not enough chapters to rate this series yet. The two people below me know what they are talking about since they read the raws. Anyways, this manga has potential i guess and i hope some group picks this up.

It's not a happy happy feelgood manga. If you thought the plot of Ressentiment kept kicking the "protagonist" in the nads too much, don't even consider this one.

It's not the silly kind of shounen "oh noes my clan was killed by some random great demon king" (or whatever) blows, this deals more in things that could actually happen to your own loser self, if you were unlucky enough. I don't want to spoil, but chapters 27-28 are probably the worst of the lot.

That's not to say it lacks for funny spots, or even romantic spots. But the overall impression is: harsh
