i read the first 3 chapters. the main character was annoying, loud, and only talked about curry.
he actually reminded me a bit of a male teenage ponyo, which isn't cute at all.
the girl was equally as loud and the type that is needlessly violent and hits the main guy all the time.
i like series with calmer main characters

Typical shounen adventure story, but it's nice and short, has good clean art and even has a tad of romance. It's really not particularly deep, so if you like your stories original with a great deal of complexity, this is going to disappoint you. I personally found it entertaining enough despite its similarity to other series I've read.

What IS guaranteed to disappoint you, however, is the ending. Like others here have said before: WTF? I turned to the last page and literally flipped back and forth a few times because I couldn't believe that was the ending we were given after all those events. It's the epitome of a wide open ending, with none of the loose ends tied up.

Well, it was interesting, but I guess it wasn't that interesting 'cause it ended pretty quickly. This manga certainly wins the best "WTF ending," like mystichead said.I felt it kinda lack the impact that makes the readers wants to know more. Still, the ending made me laugh, so I guess I'll give it a higher rating just for that.

Classic shounen, take it for what it is.

Great plot, great drawings/designs, comedy, all of it top-notch - But for something that started 2007, it borrows a lot of ideas. Great, but not original. Personally, I don't have a problem with using common ideas. Books, TV, manga, whatever - it's always ALL about the execution. My commonly used "7" is for manga I enjoyed reading, but will never occupy my thoughts.

Though it has one major difference. (Some of you might find it a spoiler.)
Spoiler (highlight to view)
They actually kiss, which is pretty crazy for a non-hentai manga (which is just farkin' sad)

Nice and short.........
no overpowering stronger enemies and main character every single time....

pretty decent plot.....nice twists...although a bunch of them were pretty predictable....

as for the ending.....u will have the best WTF there in a hilarious fashion...

also since this is a shounen...and its short........
I was surprised to see it have a good amount of character development....and character actually having a little depth to them

[Note: i'm not a shounen hater.......i actually like just a critic....and like some depth and complexity in certain aspects]

Well, this manga is about thieves, yet I've yet to see any sort of real thieving. The protagonist just destroys everything with his shounen powers. That being said, this series is a bit TOO shounen. Typical shounen plot devices will make you bored in 10 pages. Want a good manga about thieving? Go read Jing the king of bandits

I normally don't ask shounen to have original plot so I don't care about that, but man, the character and plot development is this thing is just ¨lame¨ (Even worst than Rave Master)

This manga has pretty much nothing original about it. It's been done much better by others already. As far as I'm concerned, it's not worth the trouble of reading unless you simply don't care that you're practically reading the same thing you've read dozens of times before except this time it's not nearly as good or interesting. I gave it a 2 for the art, which isn't bad at all and probably the most bearable point to this manga.

I got a few pages into the first chapter and could not find anything original about this manga. From the characters to the plot to even the introduction, I felt as if I was reading a combination of stereotypes taken from far better shounen adventure series (such as Naruto, One Piece, or Fairy Tail). Honestly, with this description, I was hoping for something way better... and more original!

For some reason I don't think this is as obnoxious as SDK.... yet (originality and all that aside). Since that has to be my most hated series ever, this is saying a lot coming from me. It's just a lot more playful.
Mind you, I'm still extremely sceptical about it. We'll see how long it takes before I stop reading.

edit: Haha, oh well, guess it ended already. Whatever.
