This is a continuation of Koko Tekken-den Tough which ran for 42 volumes and followed the main character, Kiichi, when he was younger and was training under his father Seiko Miyazawa. This is a mixed martial arts fighter manga about the Miyazawa school of martial arts. Initially, it is about Kiichi trying to heal his father after he was nearly killed by his brother Kiryu but it then goes on to be less about that as his father recovers and some tournament style fighting begins.

I'm really shocked that nobody wrote a review on this one yet so I'll break the ice for now.

I need to make this clear from the beginning: If fighting isn't your thing, drop this manga, it's not for you.

If you read the prequel and liked it, you'll love Tough!
But even if you started with this one, you won't be dissapointed, you don't really need to know what happened before to appreciate Tough!
As a fan of martial arts/full contact I can assure you that this manga is the real deal.

Well, initially I started Tough and read the first 3 chapters and I was hooked. Decided to browse about it, I found out it is the sequel manga to Koukou Tekkenden Tough. I had to put it on hold and read the prequel to Tough first before starting this manga. I recommend doing the same

Story 9
The story still revolves around Kiibo in the martial arts world. This manga's story centres on struggles he faces as the heir to the Nadashinkage clan 2 years after the events of Koukou Tekkenden Tough and as his family's martial art style gains more international recognition which was avoided in read more
