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!!

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.

By the time I was reading Nakaba Suzuki's previous work Seven Deadly Sins, I kinda drifted away from it's premise. It was entertaining to read but somehow the manga wash't cutting out how I expected to be so I decided to read some of Nakaba's other works until I stumbled upon one manga. This manga being so Kongou Banchou.
By looking at the cover of the first volume it had MANLINEST written like a colored sheet. The main pro tag Akira reminded me a little of LeoBanchomon from Digimon(I don't know why but it stuck with me). So I decided to read it, and after read more

Kongou Banchou is a manga that deserves your attention, it's a little gem forgotten by time. It's my pleasure to write a review about it. Let's get into it.

Story - 7
Kongou Banchou's premise is very simple: a strange, very tall man appears in Tokyo, claiming that he will destroy the "23 District Project" and the people behind it (using his own fists, of course). I was going to give a 6 because the initial plot wasn't that clear, but considering everything that happened till the end and how well paced the manga is, I gave an 7.

Art - 8
Art is OK, read more
