Synopsis

In the distant future, individuals who adore the old way of life live in Kowloon Walled City—a slum city that serves as a refuge for those who long for the Hong Kong of the past. Realtor Reiko Kujirai, however, craves for the new and exciting places in the area. In contrast, her only coworker, Hajime Kudou, enjoys the nostalgia the city invokes and is put off by anything modern that seeps past its walls. But despite their differing views and constant bickering on the most mundane of things, the two often find themselves enjoying each other's company.

One day, a prank gone wrong leads Hajime to make an unexpected advance toward Reiko, after which he swiftly apologizes for. Baffled by his actions, Reiko starts investigating for possible explanations, only to discover a past that she has no memory of.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

Preliminary (54/? eps)
Kowloon generic romance is a manga with a very 1990’s vibe but contemporary art style (which will make you nostalgic if you’ve grown up with that sort of art). I initially thought this was a normal office based romance set in Kowloon (in Hongkong) but man I was so wrong.
Since it is still publishing, I don’t know where the story is going too but so far it is keeping me piqued with curiosity. I love how it’s displaying the elements of a dystopian utopia so beautifully, be it the art or the story. (It also reminded a bit of summertime render due to the ...

Preliminary (52/? eps)
My god man, my head is all over the place after dropping this manga at the 52nd chapter. I actually was interested in it at first because of the characters and the art (didn’t know Kowloon was once upon a time a city in real life). It was super confusing like it was going back and forth an awful lot that you hardly keep up what the goals for each character were. I wish they just made the both BL couple and main leads just be all main leads tbh. In fact I wouldn’t have minded a bisexual 4some story in this and it MAYBE ...

Preliminary (70/? eps)
So i just read this full recently, until latest translated chapter. And having it read before, this is the equivalent to The series called Lost.

In Lost, each episode you are bombared with new information and new lore. But what kowloon does not get a grip at is that they never reveal the lore, presumably in the last chapters of this manga everything will be explained.

Following is my opinion. Why tf is there gay seggs between a psychopathic male doctor and a most likely a modefied male human. And all of a sudden this now about the 2 of them solving this "CONSPIRACY OOGGAAA ...
