UNDERRATED BATTLE SHONEN!!! MANLINESS!!!

From the creator of "The 7 Deadly Sins", this is one of the most over the top battle mangas you'll ever read! Kongo Bancho is essentially a tournament style series with participants being Banchos (delinquent leaders). Akira Kongo is our leading hero who does not sway from his old fashioned convictions of honor & chivalry. His goal is to stop the conquest of Japan so he participates in the tourny, fighting against various martial arts & ludicrous opponents such as a giant shark, an android, hot blooded women, a giant cow, manly men & he even fights a mecha!!

I noticed this manga haven't been talked about enough, kinda sad since Kongoh Bancho is easily one of the best mangas I've read to date. Brief summary:

Akira Kongoh (the main character) has one goal: to end the "23 District Project" (a project made by the Japanese govt. where humans w/ insane superhuman abilities - known w/ the common term Bancho, fight for control of all the districts). Early on in the manga, he's forced to compete in the project against other Banchos while looking for the leaders of the project (reason is b/c he hates the idea of having other people influence others' lifestyle/beliefs and read more

Looking from the other 2 reviews present as I am writing this review, this is the first review for the completed manga. And that is important. Why? Somehow, from chapter 100 onwards, everything became so rushed, unexplained, crazy and sick at times, especially chpt. 100 (which literally changed the mood of the manga from medium to dark for 1 incident).

Kongou Bunchou is a hopelessly underrated manga and I am extremely grateful to the scanlators for translating such an awesome manga cause I'm sure all of Suzuki Nakaba's mangas are relatively unknown and underrated.

The story used to be 10, even if some minor things were not read more
