Tarou Sakamoto was considered the greatest hitman of all time. Feared by many, he stood at the top of the underground world until he met and fell in love with a woman. As a result, Sakamoto abandoned his life of crime and now works as a convenience store clerk.

Leaving his shady past behind proves more difficult than Sakamoto initially imagined. Many of his former rivals and partners do not believe that he has truly left the business and show up in hopes of taking him out. Barred from killing, Sakamoto must find creative ways to subdue his enemies and prevent them from bringing harm to his family, his store, and the small town he resides in.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Sakamoto Days has been published digitally as an English simulpub through MANGA Plus. The volumes have been published in English by VIZ Media under the Shonen Jump imprint since April 5, 2022.

this manga has such a big potential to be very popular.
This is the "comedy" I love, Humor in this manga is on a big level, really good art, characters... I'm really enjoying it.

The story begins with Sakamoto, who once was a professional killer, no one was even close to him and one day.... he fell in love. yep.. he married, became a father, and "got out of shape"
I'm really enjoying this series so I hope it won't end soon and people will notice this manga so everyone ...

Preliminary (96/? eps)
"Sakamoto Days" is a manga I don't have much to say about. The quality of its art is commendable, given the weekly release schedule, although it stands in a stark contrast with every other element that constitutes a story. Apart from a couple of good jokes, there's not much to see here.
It is all so… simple, in a boring and simplistic way.
Worst of all, it's surprisingly predictable.
Because Sakamoto is there…

-------- It sets quite a high bar for itself, but never even reaches close to it --------

The beginning is undeniably the best part (taking into consideration 'only' the first 96 chapters). It has an idea, hook ...
