Synopsis

In a bleak city where gangs hold more authority than the law, Yukio "Yuki" Kousei and his close friend Tetsushi "Tetsu" deal fake drugs in the back alleys to earn some cash. However, with a chronically ill little brother in need of hospitalization, Yuki and Tetsu set their sights on a vault located in the office of the Seidoukai—a well-known yakuza group—in hopes of acquiring a large sum of untraceable money.

Their plan does not pan out, but Yuki catches the interest of the young boss, Kazutaka Hyodo, who promises to take care of his brother's hospital bills and let them go unpunished. But as all deals come with a price, Hyodo tells him to come to his office alone once a week—without fail. With his brother's health as his first priority, Yuki accepts without hesitation and begins to keep his end of the bargain, all while tension brews between Seidoukai and a rising gang thirsty for power.

Preliminary (51/? eps)
Acid town is nothing short of a twisted, dark tale with the themes of karma, love,revenge,sexual assault,trauma and much more.
It follows the motivations of different characters connected to one person(who is dead) and how those strings lead to their actions in their present situation. In short, Its an emotional yet an epic ride.Several conspiracies tying them together and how that is related to the main characters is certainly a treat to read.
The characters are the best suit of the series. Most of them are morally grey not to mention they are written extremly well.
The BL tag might be a turn of for some(it has a ...

if you like seinen and yaoi, this manga is for you.
The story is not focus on the relationship between two main characters which fall in love but contains a very interesting plot about Yakuzas and gang war.
All the characters in this manga are in deep pain and you will be too by knowing their stories. I think that Kyugo has really managed to make them all very humans and even though you haven't experienced the same things they have, you can trully identify yourself and understand their feelings.
It's a hard story but i can't wait for next chapter!
I recommand it at 100%.

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (33/? eps)
Sadly, as much as I was intrigued after the first few chapters, it pretty quickly began to spiral downwards for me.
If you're interested in yakuza, yaoi and the complex relationship between characters, I'd rather recoomend Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai by Yoneda Kou.


It's a shame that, after the introduction to our main protagonist Yuki and Tetsu, as well as Hyodo - a yakuza member, the story relies heavily on the dramatic factor of Yukio being assaulted over and over.

The way Yuki's trauma is portrayed was very good and honest, because, unlike a lot of times, his trauma actually matters in terms of how he acts ...
