Synopsis

In a city where the law has been rendered non-existent, Yuki and his best friend Tetsu break into the offices of the Seidoukai to steal in a desperate attempt to finance his ailing brother's hospital bills. They ultimately fail but instead spark the interest of the mob's young leader, Kazutaka Hyodo, who offers Yuki a deal he can't refuse: pay him a visit at his office once a week and all hospital bills will be taken care of. Yuki accepts without hesitance and in order to keep his end of the deal, starts paying Hyodo the visits he asked for...

Story, 10:
Where to start... Well, for those who read the synopse and are accustomed to bl manga might say “there we go! Another main character being sexually harassed by his superior... Its cliché time!!” like sekaichi hatsukoi, mankai darling and a few others. In fact, it broke from the genre right there since its far more complex than that.
Acid Town introduces several characters that, while being seemingly non-related, are all connected through a complex web of present and past relationships. The usage of time in this manga is heavy talking about events even before the main character was born. Those who like linear storylines with read more

Determined to do whatever it takes to cover his ailing little brother's medical bills, Yuki and his friend Tetsu get caught trying to break into the local yakuza family's office. Hyodo, leader of the Seidoukai, however, is surprisingly willing to let them go unpunished and, what's more, even offers to take care of the hospital bills from now on. He has only one condition: Yuki, without fail, has to show up at the office once a week. Yuki accepts the offer - and his duties at the office turn out to be meaningless. Sitting around and playing chess, Yuki can't help but start to ask read more

I'm a very fond of acid town. I couldn't put it down.

My very first review: When I first read Acid town I had thought in my mind that it's going to be boring and I'll end up forcing myself to read the whole chapter, just for the heck of it. But oh no I was wrong, I got so engrossed by the characters sad, lonely, dangerous, traumatic, horrifying lives that if I windup like one of those characters, I wouldn't survive a single day. I'll probably become a mentally deranged person.

I like a story which the past caught up with the characters, and read more

Story - Really intriguing, involved storyline with compelling main characters. This story is a step above the usual ‘I like this guy…..there’s some complications and misunderstandings but then we eventually get together’ manga. It’s a plot-heavy, romance-light drama – but the romantic elements meant more to me when they do appear, as I was more invested in the characters.

It’s set in a quite gritty urban landscape in a world of gangs and crime, in a city that has been affected by some as yet unspecified environmental calamity – which provides an extra note of underlying background tension.
