Firstly, this anime is not for everybody, this is a Seinen,and a real one, this is not only about Blood and more blood, like everybody thinks a Seinen must have. This is the story of a simple man, an amazing man fighting for survive and for a better life to his family. It sounds kind of heroic, but it's exactly like that.

If you have watched GTO, and you've liked it, you'll love this one. I'll analyze some parts:


The story is amazing, you'll like every single part of it, because you have a lot of stories in it. You only can watch the businessman story, the read more

This is a hidden Seinen gem.
It's one of those series that stuns you with an incredible balance between drama and ambitions, and it feels deeply rooted and natural, just what you want from a Senien show.
Kintaro is as good as a main character could get. It's incredible to watch how his aura and ideals affect all other characters around him, and how that affects his life and career in Yamato construction in the most unpredictable ways.

Btw, harem should be included in the genre.

Even though it takes a very serious tone towards political and corporate corruption, it throws an over the top, too-farfetched-to-believe character. A number of cringeworthy scenes 'trying' to show how desirable the main character is, problems and solutions that fall into place all too perfectly well, and 'coincidental' and 'fateful' encounters that magically work in favor for our righteous hero slash salaryman.

Yes, Kintaro is destined for greatness, loved by the heavens above, inevitably admired and cherished by everyone, even his enemies ... and the anime tries to ham it in every chance it gets.
