Description
From Kodansha USA:
When you’re the infamous prodigy hitman known only as “Fable,” many things come easy. Being a normal person, however, isn’t one of them. In fact, being told that he can’t kill anyone for a while may just be the hardest job Fable’s ever taken.

Note: Won the 41st Kodansha Manga Award for General Manga in 2017 and was nominated for the Best Series Award at the 51st Angoulême International Comics Festival in 2024.

Enjoyed the beginning but it dragged on too long and the pacing suffered. By the end, I was bored.

If John 'baba yaga' wick, jason bourne, Stunt skills from jackie chan + tom cruise and dar robinson, Bruce lee's JKD philosophy combined with CQC, and spidey sense are combined and wrapped into one form, that's a brief description of the main character's abilities here.
Despite his superhuman abilities in Assassin form. He was just a man who only had abilities on the level of a normal child's skills. Like a coin that has 2 sides. He is a savant who is a genius when it comes to k!lling. but on the other side, he is just a grown man who has life skills as naive as a 'little kid'.
And this manga focuses on his story after being ordered by his 'father' to take a break from his assassin life and forced to become a 'Normal' Man.

That's why, this manga not only contains extraordinary action stories from a super assassin, but is also interspersed with adult jokes that are very entertaining.
The art style is also semi-realistic or realistic (where the background is drawn using the photo tracing method and most of the characters or scenes are drawn using the realism method) so it makes your reading experience enjoyable.

Really great 'Slice of life + comedy action' manga with romance subplot. Enjoy your time.

i really don't like this kind of manga, the comedy is kinda cringe and the art is trying realism without nailing it, leading to either ugly or disturbing faces and expressions

but i don't know why i can't stop reading, so i guess it has some undescribable qualities, like, a sitcom, but i really don't like the comedy nor the characters that much...

This Manga wasn't my first choice because of the artwork but the story is so good! I rooted for the MC before I even knew, he is a real badass. Still: The main protagonists’ characters aren't clique at all. It's realistic but not boring with long explanations and on top of it I cried while laughing so hard whenever the "sister" plays her "favorite game". Give it a try at least until you see her play – I swear you won’t stop at that point and it keeps getting better.
