the story and drawing are really good ! the mangaka improved through the volumes !! yep yep ^^ and yeah near the end it becomes a bit repetitiv : different characters with different past but the same ingredient/atmosphere... it is not that bad though and i even found it touching ^^ I love the relationship between Yuya and Kyo! ahaha they make an hilarous couple ! smile

The story is pretty good. But I don't like how the manga focuses too much on the supporting characters and evil guys in the latter chapters (especially since I don't like Yukimura...he just pisses me off).
Someone should filter the KyoxYuya and Kyo VS evil guy moments.
That's all I am intrested in. Who needs to know the whole background of some unimportant character, who is going to be killed by Kyo anyway.

It pretty good... at the beginning. But now it's just all Kyo (who i don't like) and almost nothing on the should be main character Kyoshiro (who i do like) SO i don't know what's up with that and I don't know if i'll finish this series. Mister Kyo is supposed to be the super "i'm gonna kick ur @$$" bad guy but it seems like he is a weakling sad I want Kyoshiro!
P.S: the art is good...

I really really enjoyed this series! The art is beautiful and the plot is overall great! (I'm actually one of the few who'd prefer SDK over Kenshin) I like the combination of action, humor and romance (which never gets all fluffy).
The characters are also great.. I love Kyo and his bad ass ways and I really have a soft spot for his 4 warriors (especially Hotaru who is f**king hilarious).

This is definitely one of my favorite mangas!

For the story to be based almost fully on romance the writer kept it from being mushy and fluffy kyo is a real badass hands down one of the best male characters not to even start about was amazingly hot he was lol, i love they way the whole story played out is was rather simple good guys beat the bad guys butt the characters all had there own personalty and were really interesting to read about even characters i didn't like were fun to read about.
I really love the Kyo and Yuya thing is really gave they story a sweet not to talk about funny mix, i didn't like kyoshiro he just seemed depressing butt when ever he was with kyo and yuya that was like the perfect mix of personalty's
if you don't read this you will be missing out on a lot
one of my all time fav mangas!

there is a HUGE difference between the anime and the manga, you cannot even compare it, haha

anyway, i agree too! kyoshiro is way cooler than kyo, is it because we rarely see him?

I've read the whole 38 volumes and while I thought it was quite promising in the beginning, every time I read a new volume after volume 10 or something I kept asking myself why oh why am I keep on reading this manga. Perhaps it's because those water-fire brothers were cute! They indeed were. Nice artwork, some cute characters, it's just the story and especially the turns of events... Ah well, as a whole I couldn't and can't appreciate this manga highly.

Great manga but Kamijyo is evil to my fav character...

I hasn't read the whole manga yet but I am really attached to it! I really love the story and the fights are great but sometimes its a bit too much talk in between them and Kamijyo seems to be dragging out the story way too much...

But one thing that REALLY bugs me(and by the comments, others too) is that my favorite character, Kyoshiro, barely gets to be in the manga :/ I mean Kyo was really intresting at first but lately he's becoming more and more predictable as you get to know him... Kyoshiro on the other hand is a real mystery...
I liked it more when Kyo and Kyoshiro shared the manga more and Kyo brought most of the action while Kyoshiro brought the humor and got the story to move forward...
I think Kyoshiro is really cool but I won't tell why because that would be a huge spoiler...

I give it a 9 because that Kyoshiro got too little room.. >.<

Very tiring

Recommended for people who enjoy big, loud, stupid stories.

Even within the very tired genre of one-upsmanship combat series, I don't think I've read another piece that is as stunningly dense, repetitive and obnoxious. It has all the subtlety of a sledgehammer and the dialogue is so monotonous and silly that it goes well beyond the realm of simply "bad" and borders on "elaborate joke." The usual genre cliches of observer commentating and heavy-handed, unnecessary narration ("He blocked the attack?!" "Is he stronger?!" "Is this the true power of blabla?!") are followed so enthusiastically that it stops being "helpful," stop beings even "annoying," and just goes straight to "unintentionally funny."

After the absolutely dreadful dialogue, there are some positive features. The art is detailed and rich, and the characterizations are varied and sometimes amusing. There's even at attempt at a very convoluted and confusing story somewhere amidst the mess, but when you're not marveling at the complexity of what Kamijyo is trying to execute, you're scratching your head wondering why he chose to make it so improbably bizarre and nonsensical. Chances are, the only people still reading by the end don't care about or understand the story (unless they've got Asperger's and LIKE sorting through mounds of useless information), they're just there to see some scowling bravado and explosions (and don't forget fanservice), in which case: this Bud's for you!

Having read it till the end all I can say is that the manga started out decent and then turned it into a huge crapfest comparable to its anime. So don't bother reading this one if you aren't out of titles to read cause it'll disappoint you to no end and leave you with a headache.

Don't even want to list all the reasons why it turned out so bad cause well simply, I don't want to waste a half hour on typing and this manga is simply not worth more time than I already spend on it.
