Sawada Tsunayoshi is regular boy who has never excelled in sports, school or social life, thus being named "No Good Tsuna". Everyday, he leads just a normal life, living with his mother, while his father is away for work. But the thing Tsunayoshi doesn't know is that his family is actual lineage of the great Mafia Boss, the first head of Vongola, Giotto.

Because of the Sawada history, Tsuna has been chosen to become tenth head of the Vongola family, an infamous Italian mafia family which rules the Mafia world. To become worthy of the title, Tsuna is being aided by professional hitman and infant, Reborn, who takes the role of Tsunayoshi's mafia tutor.

If you're able to stand seven manga worth of one chapter mini crack stories, only to get hit with a bag full of PLOT, then Katekyo hitman reborn might be the manga for you.

Tsuna Sawada, the main protagonist, is introduced as a middle school boy who can do nothing right, and is a constant screwup. In comes Reborn, an assassin in the shape of a baby, who's badassery knows no bounds, and who consequently informs Tsuna that he's the unlikely successor to the greatest mafia family in the world, the Vongola. Tsuna certainly doesn't want this thrown upon him, but has no choice read more

*This review may contain spoilers*

There's so many things that can be said about Katekyo Hitman Reborn (KHR) - good and bad things, but mostly the latter.

Our main protagonist, Tsuna, is a rather atypical hero in comparison to what you'd find in your standard fare of shounen manga in a sense. Tsuna has little to no self-confidence and believes he amounts to nothing much at all, himself and others referring to him as "No Good Tsuna" for having no spine, poor grades, terrible luck, and a lack of athleticism as he catches basketballs with his face in P.E. Bad news for Tsuna is he's assigned a read more

This manga is really awesome in my point of view. I heard about it from a friend, and I decided to check it out. I got hooked immediately. The drawing style was cool, and the storyline was fantastic, just my type of manga. It starts out comical, but then later chps show it get intense and with some major action. And it's about the mafia. I mean that's rare to find a manga about the mafia.
And I absolutely love the characters! Especially since the main character is weak and totally useless. It makes for good comedy.

This is a manga review. I promise I'll hit the anime once I'm further into it, but it hasn't registered enough episodes logged for me to review yet.
Story - 5

The story in Katekyo Hitman Reborn is subpar at best and full of almost painful cliches. Full of previously unmentioned relatives, abusive senseis, naive characters, and pseudo villians who will join the heroes cause eventually. Ugh! The story surrounds Sawada Tsunayoshi who is a middle school student, he is naive, whiny, foolish, and over all extremely reluctant to get involved with anything. Before we ever have a chance to actually get read more

Manga: Nurarihyon no Mago
Both of these Weekly Jump titles revolve around male protagonists who are the successors of highly decorated organisations (the Nura clan in Nurarihyon no Mago and the Vongola family in Reborn!). The narrative of both titles generally feature the male protagonist developing alliances with other characters, as well as fighting those that get in their way.

Manga: Eyeshield 21
the main characters start out very similar both very weak willed and give up easy, the story's although very different bring about change to them and along with the help of some brilliant supporting characters they find out they are far stronger then they first thought.

Manga: Boku no Hero Academia
both of the main characters start out very similar both very weak willed, give up easily and bullied by their peers.In Boku no Hero Academia the main protagonist is smart however alienated by his classmates for being the only one not having superpowers.While in Katekyo Hitman Reborn the main protagonist is bullied simply because he is bad at everything, from sports,to school and social life.As the plot deepens however they grow stronger as an individual.

The fights, the enemies and the reason why they fight. The first 7 tankoubon are crack but then it starts the good part of the history.

Manga: One Piece
Although the theme of Reborn! and One Piece are entirely different, the values they represent are quite similar. For instance, you have the whole concept of "family" in Reborn! which complimenets One Piece's notion of a "nakama". Another similarity is that you have various organisations - different mafia groups in Reborn! as oppose to different pirate groups in One Piece. In addition, each character, in both mangas, tends to have a specific way of fighting. Thus, highlighting another similarity found between Reborn! and One Piece.
