The story is very realistic. It's great if you are looking for something more down to earth. I didn't relate with the themes of the story, but if you like gangs and old-school motorcycles, then I think you could have a really great time.

The art is great. I don't think I have anything else to add.

Other than the main character, there was no one else to root for. It's also kind of fun watching Takashi become an asshole.

I enjoyed it despite not being into motorcycles or hang wars.

I recommend this series if you are into realistic stories but as for me... meh

This is a work of unbelievable quality: a proper confessionary bildungsroman in plot, a masterpiece in art, blossoming with loving depiction of Japanese motorcycles – in motion, no less, at night, in city lights, running, growling, flowing. Personally, I think Tsutomu Takahashi usually bites more than he can chew with his concepts, but in Bakuon Rettou he truly overdelivers. It’s a mature work of a mature mangaka, who draws from years lived and pages drawn – and emerges in unimaginable power.

The story is autobiographic. The author himself was a part of a biker gang, of bosozoku – a subculture drawing its last breaths in 80-s read more

Delinquents is a subgenre of manga that deals with the shenanigans of teens rebelling with the intent of finding their purpose in life. While not so popular in the medium of anime, it is one of the most recognisable, if not popular genres of manga, with several magazines across different demographics dabbling with them, aiming to find the next hit. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that 2 of the 3 most popular manga running during Shounen Jump’s golden age, happened to have delinquent leads in it. And while the halcyon days are now far behind (usually seen to be somewhere between the late 1980s read more

That sleeve doesn't need a long review, it was simply some of the best sleeves I've ever read

Well-developed character, as well as other characters

I will certainly read more of this author's manga, and I hope i bid more and more, from what I saw the manga was based on the personal life of mangaka, and it really made me very happy, because the mangaka was not afraid to show his vision when he was only 16 years old. And may your deceased friends rest in peace

If you are reading this review, I highly recommend you read and enjoy, I'm not a good guy with criticism, read more
