So umm.. I'm kind late with this but anyways I sat down (at 12am...) and finished the 1st vol.. my reactions
Pretty good. There is somewhat a plot but it hasn't been developed that much. Currently there are more things I hate about it then like:
I hate how the female lead (well guy in public) is super strong.. strong enough to stop 3 bullets with a chain at a time.. While not a negative aspect because I hate weak character more.. I want to see an arc where she actually loses.
I hate the male lead.. expectantly how he try's to control the female lead with money. He does anything to keep her around and even chains her up to keep her by his side. He also likes her but can't say anything.
Plot: Not much development yet but its only the 1st vol
what happened with the rest of the family: other than the female/male lead what happened to the 3 other brothers? they just took a back hike just so it can focus on these two?
Anyways I'm still interested in the series so I'll keep up with it and hopefully catch up with another few vols next week.

at vol 10 and now only 3-4 vols behind.
Anyways the development is getting better. They seem to be pushing away from the fact about how good of a fighter she is. Which I think is a great thing because it should either be the development of the couple or the action. It seems to be doing a better job in the development then the action which I think is great. Although I love action this story is more suited for development.
Anyways the arcs aren't that long and they do tend to get interesting but there are some complaints that I have to make. The first is that it changes settings kind of quickly. One arc ended and I couldn't figure out if it was still on that setting or not.
Anyways a quick way to sum up my thoughts is "getting better".
I do want to finish this manga quickly and figure out how it finishes but also I'm not that much into a face. Although I'm not the type of person to read 150 chapters and finally figure out how a love story finishes. If I judge only about this love situation I think the story is failing because I hate this much time and not much development.

So they end up togeather. I am really surprised about this series. During the first few chapters you could tell it would be a romance type of series and I hate those so much but this turned out completly different. They had a mix of action and other related events to put the characters togeather.
I will say that a turn around vol 15 did make it seem like a huge plot twist when they figure out tsukasa is related to wasaba (the women fighter that is always talked about who died). That was annoying the way they played that fact was very interesting. They didn't take the easy route but used it very lightly at bits of a time until it was finally known to everyone around 5 chapters tell the end.
Action got better as it went on but I still hate the fact about how unrealistic it is. Once it got to the andriods I was losing interest in the fight scenes because we have already seen those types of fights and also how they finished.
Romance wise. It worked out well. I was worried how they would get everyone to accept their partner and not have a triangle and it actually worked out. There wasn't 1 partner that was in a triangle, but there were only 2 different couples at the end and they were actually explained and accepted.. which doesn't happen that often.
One thing I did hate is how they kept the some terms in the origional spelling. It was hard for me to keep remembering what each word ment and the source I read these from had around 10 total pages untranslated, which made things difficult.
In the end, I am very pleased with this series which had a nice mixed and I'm glad that most of all the arcs where connected in some way or another.. instead of having the final arc the only one that makes progress.. :(
Score: 9/10 very good.
